Movie Review: Steve Jobs

I decided I wanted to see Steve Jobs sometime last week before it went out of theatres and Justin was also interested so off we went on Saturday night. I knew it flopped and got horrible reviews, but I thought it seemed like it would be interesting. Everyone knows Jobs was an asshole but I curious to find out how much of an asshole he actually was.

Of course it was overdramatized, but I thought it was really cleverly written. It felt like a play that had three acts, each act was for a different product launch. I loved seeing Michael Stuhlbarg and Katherine Waterson onscreen. They were both excellent. And Jeff Daniels of course! 

The cast overall was fabulous and I really enjoyed the movie. I learned a lot. Reviews be damned.


All New Things

I was fortunate enough to be able to buy an apartment and I closed on it two weeks ago and tomorrow I am finally moving in. It was the last apartment that I looked at in late-July (out of probably 50 apartments) and it was about a three month process but it’s done and I am a resident there now. It’s on the border between the Upper West Side and Morningside Heights. It’s a small one bedroom but it’s great and it’s mine. Oh, and it has a roof deck. And it allows pets.

Woot! Time to adopt a cat!

And since moving and starting a new job aren’t enough of a change, I thought I’d throw in “new Macbook Air” too. I haven’t bought a new computer since 2009 and I feel a little guilty as that Macbook is still perfectly fine (if not slow and heavy as a rock). But I found a great deal for an upgraded 2013 Macbook Air on Mac’s refurbished section and went for it. 

I was checking out the specs on my current Macbook to compare. My current Macbook has 250GB of space and 1GB of RAM. The Air has 500GB and 8GB of RAM (a 1.7 processor). 

While I was packing up my walk-in closet I found my college laptop in a case on the floor. It is an IBM and it had all of 32GB of space on it. I’m not sure what to do with it. Ideas? I need a case too. 

It’s so pretty:
