Today, I got an e-mail correspondence from a client of mine that detailed a purchase via eBay of a laptop with some high end specifications for a great price, only to have the unit become very hot to the touch only after using it for half an hour or so. My client and the seller communicated over this concern, and wanted a second opinion on the correspondence.
The seller will take laptops that end up being available on the used or refurbished market, fix them up, improve them, and otherwise make it a fresh fit to re-sell. There are a lot of organizations that do that, given that so many laptops are out there as a result of planned obsolescence and/or a more “disposable” society. I think it is a wonderful idea that helps to mitigate the concepts above; but at the same time, the correspondence felt less than satisfactory.
I had a realization that has taken all this time to become clear for me; and as a result I am at a crossroads. At the moment, I am choosing to be lost, until I put info form a new set of decrees to move forward with. Albuquerque is turning out to be quite the place so far - it is for me a city unlike any other. The city drew me to it, and so far, it has provided me countless opportunities for growth to be more than myself; and with that, comes numerous challenges, each challenge greater than the last one I barely grappled with and processed. Not overcome; not won; not conquered; but became aware of; became engaged and immersed in; some integration of it; some reflection of it; and some introspection of it.
This event happened on June 8th, 2013, the end of my first week in New Mexico.
