I guess Apple figured that since my head seems to be in the clouds that they might as well make me migrate my systems there, too. Yesterday I received my
threat reminder that I needed to get my account moved to iCloud. I am pretty tech savvy but I sat here staring at my iMac, my iPad and my iPhone as they began to scream out while I began the process. Apple tries to simplify the transition by saying, “click here”. “Click Here” should be defined very clearly as “Be prepared to spend weeks trying to sort out what you just did.” If I were going to need to call in a psychic medium to contact Steve Jobs to get this handled, there should have been a disclaimer somewhere on the page. Rumor has it that if you take a photo that the new Photo Stream will stream that photo from the iCloud to my iPad etc.. REALLY? I went to the iCloud and there is no picture in my iCloud or anywhere else for that matter besides the iPhone that I took it on. When I used Bluetooth to pair my iPad with my iMac it said thank you, you may now use your headset. What??? What headset? And now my iPad is still not connected. My bluetooth headset isn’t even charged, on, or in the vicinity of this thing. I am going to juice a few extra apples today in protest of my iCloud migration frustration. I am a spell it all out kind of girl when it comes to these migration issues:
- Grab your cup of coffee.
- You comfortable? If yes, turn on your iPad and proceed to #3. If you are not comfortable, let’s talk about that for a moment shall we? Feel better? Great…now proceed to #3.
- Go to your settings, turn on blah blah blah, then do blah blah blah.
What I really don’t want to read about is what you are going to do for me. Apple, show me what you are going to do for me. Spell it out, it has been a long week. I want to see that you care. *Pauses to go juice some apples…
Ah, I feel better. Now that I have had three cups of coffee and enough juiced carrots that Easter may be called off, I think I can tackle this issue.
In other news…
I am completely excited about the picture that I took on my trip to the ocean with Elysia. It has been turned into a poster and yesterday I framed it in a nice espresso wooden frame. I think it needs a mat but I will worry about that later. I can not wait to get this put up in my home office. Watching the ocean on a stormy day is one of my favority things that brings me such joy. The raging water symbolizes strength for me and as the waves crash against the shore I am reminded to keep pushing no matter what life throws at me.
Ok, so not the best photo angle but I was trying to reduce the glare. I had to take the shot by turning off the lights and by then turning on my flash. It looks far better than this gives it credit for.
Once I put a mat in this, it will be perfect. I am then going to have the photos that I took of the seagulls made in to 8×10’s and 11×13’s and have them put in my office as well. Put on a little Diane King, pour an island drink and I have created an instant adventure! I am just good like that. ; )
Take It Or Leave It…
Set the mood for your life. When I exercise I put on high-energy music, the kind that makes me want to keep my body moving. When I am relaxing, I tend to put on my Smooth Jazz or Classical playlist and sip on a glass of wine. When I am playful I turn on my playlist with Reggae and Salsa and when I am heading out to have a good time I turn on my Pop/Rap playlist. I even have Romance and Sexy playlists…you figure that one out. Music is energy and it can relax or excite you. Use music in your life to set or enhance your mood, or just help you get through your day. This song by Mica Paris helps me get through mine, Enjoy!
