Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Genius Bar to the RescueI

I don't know what it is but the Apple Store scares me. Maybe it is that I think they are way to cool for me or that they are just intellectually superior.

Whatever it is I was forced to face my coolness fears and go to the Apple Genius Bar.

See I managed to delete all my pictures out of iphoto. Like everything.

I tried for hours to find them and no luck, but I knew they were there. I have 70,000 pictures and movies on my MacBook so if they were gone can you imagine how much space I would have. Yeah it is sad.

I sucked it up and went in, I walked with my little backpack all the way to the back of the store and to my genius. To my horror some pretty "deer in the headlights" looking pictures of me came up on the screen when he was trying to find my photos.

I guess they are not that bad but I hate looking at pictures of myself.

The genius located my pictures and aside from letting me know it would take six hours (at least) to get them back into iphoto he fixed my problem with my magic mouse (I had one that just didn't work who knows what I did and he just replaced it for free) and told me about a program called duplicate annilator that I had to buy to get rid of my mass quanitees of duplicate pictures.

I left feeling happy, and amazed at how nice the people at Apple were. I love the Genius Bar and love that they didn't make me feel like I was a crazy picture deleting fool. Love them.

It is so great to have a positive customer service experience, isn't it.




I love our Apple stores! In fact, I love all things Mac. I think your uncertainty may have come from the term Genius Bar. It kind of implies, they're UP there, but we're way DOWN here. Whereas, in reality, I've found the people themselves to be lovely, very helpful and will talk to you at the level you need. Next time you won't be embarrassed and will venture in earlier.
