I am sitting here working on Project 3, and I have to say I have had some frustration. My plan was to make an iMovie of photos with captions from my long form poem from Project 2. Easier said than done. The problem is…I am a PC person.
As I look around in most of my classes, there are MacBooks everywhere. The little white apple with the chunk out of it circles most classrooms I sit in on campus. There are different colors and different styles and even different models. The original MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro; so many to choose from. In the sea of MacBooks, my Sony VAIO stands out. I love my laptop. I grew up using a PC, and it is what I am most comfortable with. When I went to college, all of my friends got MacBooks except for me. Call me lame, but I love my Sony.
So that brings me to what I was first saying. iMovie is a struggle for me. I went to the Fishbowl to work on it, and my pictures would not upload. So then I trekked all the way back to Hill Street where I live to try a different format. Back to the Fishbowl and still no success. I grabbed my friend to help me, and she couldn’t figure it out and she owns a MacBook. So as much as I love my Sony, I am sitting here wondering if I am missing out on new media outlets that I just am not going to understand right away. Will I switch to a Mac for my next laptop? I couldn’t stand to part with my PC….but Project 3 frustrations have made me think otherwise.
