Macs.


So, ladies and gents. I'm using a mac willingly for the first time since I was forced to in the 6th grade. I went to Horrace Mann Elemntary in Redmond Washington, where they had macs with color screens. Shocking, I know. 

The reason is this: I'm getting a new job with a company called Elevate (P.s. I will not be leaving ECS). And they use only macs. My dad, is the new CEO, and he got a new Imac and a new MacBook Pro (from the company).  That meant that I had to set them up and get him and my mom running. So, since then I've had to use them here and there.... And ... I'm not minding it. I know, I know. What am I thinking? Well, for one, they do use Pc chipsets now. They're just PCs with Mac OSX. I have to argue that the user interface is pretty neat and functional. On the other hand, if I build a Pc with the same amount of money it costs to buy a new MacBook Pro ($2,799.00) I would have one incredible Pc, that would blow all of these macs out of the proverbial field, if you will. And I know that you will.  
In real news, Amber is pregnant!  No, not really. I just wanted to have something awesome to say. 
Yesterday I met with New York Life, to look at our options with a Roth IRA or a Roth 401K. It was interesting, but not very educational. They babbled on about this and that, trying to push me into a life insurance plan. Until the very end, we got down the the nitty gritty.  Just for being young, they thought I didn't know anything. Irritating. But it was good to see what's out there besides First Western Advisor.
