“Why is your laptop so slow?” My .Net instructor asked me.
“Well it’s mainly because… well because… because I… how do you know it’s slow? I mean ‘slow’ is a relative term, right? What if my laptop’s speed has been the same ever since I bought it? You don’t know!”
“Yeah well, it is slower than my laptop…”
“That’s because… I’ve got no memory space left on my hard disk…Aha!!”
“And why is that? I thought you had a 1 TB external hard drive.”
“I do. And that is full too.”
“Are you kidding me? Nah, it can’t be.”
“It is!! And my laptop is full with games, movies and stuff.”
“Yeah! I can see that! What’s on your external?”
“Games and movies and…stuff…”
I know, right!?! It’s like no matter how many times you’ve watched a great movie, you just don’t want to delete it. You know you are never going to watch it again. But it feels like a part of you is getting deleted. Maybe it’s just me being paranoid, or maybe I get too attached to my movies.
But the bottom-line is, no matter how good the movie is, or how attached you are, it has to go when want something new to be saved. It’s kind of like life, you hold onto to something dear, even if it has served its purpose, even if it has run its course, but then leave it for something new, something that you hope will be better than the one you are sacrificing. Ultimately you let go of the previous thing and try out the new one. It’s when the new one is not as satisfying as the old one that you delete the new one, and you are left with nothing but the blank space. Now we wait for something better to come along and repeat the whole cycle.
“That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet.”
― Emily Dickinson
Look at me ranting on about stuff. What am I, 80? Guess maybe, I should hit the sack. Or maybe have a coffee. Yeah, I think I’ll go with the coffee thing.
