Reading is Fundamental!

Self-love 1.4.2012

I hate being frustrated. I received a new computer for Christmas (THANKS DADDY) and I was really excited because it was a new toy. However, being able to transfer all of those files is a pain in the butt. So my dad thought it would be a great idea to let Best Buy transfer all of my documents, photos and music. So of course I said yes.

You know where this is going. Only half of it appeared. ONLY HALF of 3710 songs appeared on the new computer, that’s 1855 which does not equal 3710. So I freak out and decide to pull out my old laptop and try to do the transfer myself but I don’t have enough space on my tiny jump drive. Plan B: move files a little at a time but my new computer would only transfer purchased files from the apple store which happened to be 2 CD’s, not 3710 songs (-_-)

I think I might have looked something like this...

I almost burst into tears until I calmed myself down and realized that I still have my iTunes library safely tucked away on my old laptop, the problem arises again when I try to transfer between my IPod to my computer. So I decided to leave the entire thing alone.

Have you ever been so frustrated that you set yourself up for failure instead of rationally thinking of a logical plan? Well I have! Instead of thinking how to move between libraries and check what the iTunes help support said I just acted. Instead of taking the time to read the directions listed on the iTunes website http://support.apple.com/kb/PH1463 under iTunes 10 for Windows: Move items to another computer…
I did what I “knew” was right to fix what Best Buy did wrong.

In the end, I still didn’t have all of my music on my IPod or new computer, but it is safely tucked away on my old laptop, which will now serve as my external hard drive! I was able to turn a really bad situation into a very nice compromise just by calming myself, rationally thinking about my objective and then, only then acting.

Tell me about a time where you acted before you thought about the goal you were trying to accomplish! What was your end result? How can you make it better and what would you do differently if you got the chance? And remember to always check help support and read the instructions.

About jaelisawesome

I am currently a senior at Randolph College, founded as Randolph-Macon Woman's College in 1891, majoring in Political Science: International Relations with minors in Spanish and Studio Art. Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia I believe that I have significant contributions to make to the world of diplomacy and US foreign policy. As Student Government President I am the liaison between the students and the faculty and administration, as well as the student representative to the Board of Trustees. I also serve as the Co-President of an all female a cappella group Songshine. I am known for being involved in any and every aspect at school. Some of my passions include playing on the volleyball and tennis teams, singing in almost every group at my school, performing in my very first musical Spring Awakening in the theatre department to taking orders as a barista at the schools’ coffee shop Main Grounds. After I graduate in May 2012, I aspire to attend the Master of Arts in Political Science with a concentration in European Union Policy Studies one-year, 33-credit graduate program. The intensive, residential program is based wholly in Florence, Italy and results in an MA degree in Political Science from James Madison University. My goal is to spread the Love Warrior Community, meaning more people actively bringing self-love into their lives and into the lives of others, more people accepting and loving themselves as they are and more people empowered to follow their passions and share them with the world. The Love Warrior Community is as strong as those involved. By joining the Love Warrior Community, I have the opportunity to create my own self-love practice, bringing more love into my life and the lives of those around me. I will be able to influence a greater number of people and help them to see their value and worth beyond their bodies.
