I have to be honest, currently my life is a series of tasks–things I must get done in order to accomplish life-long goals. Of course, I don’t mind this at all and I know it’s only temporary. However, situations can get a little taxing at times (as I write this I see the clock spurting towards 8 pm and I’ve only just begun after completing a different project for another class). It is when the going gets tough that I rely on my own assemblage the most. Disclaimer: I know there are elements of this assemblage that I am probably entirely unaware of, so let’s keep with what I deliberately put together in my knapsack of magic:
-My iPhone, my iPad, and my MacBook Air. Yes, I have and need all three. I am a big supporter of Apple Inc because I think that they have the best products, and Steve Jobs is a personal hero of mine. When I’m in a tight spot I easily have access to all of my email addresses’ inboxes and my calendars on my iPhone. If I were a knight, my iPhone would my dagger. It is small, but when wielded correctly it can be very powerful. (Siri is my magical fairy that goes and retrieves things for me).
-My red book bag. I hate this bag and I would rather not talk about it–I am so tired of carrying around hundreds of pounds of books in it. But, like an ugly pilgrimage coat, it is pretty vital to my survival. This bag carries everything for me and even keeps my technology gadgets dry in times like that torrential downpour I walked several blocks in on Monday night.
-My loafers. I have walked hundreds of miles in those. They didn’t quite fit at first, but you can believe they have molded to my feet by now.
-And, finally, in my assemblage I have my values that guide all my actions (including why I have chosen the above items in particular).
