The Urge

Every few months or so I get the urge to buy a new laptop and for a few days, it's all I can think about. I obsess over it, research it, even make a trip to the local Apple Store to drool over the latest MacBook. I'll make lists, meticulously go over different models, specs and deals and drive myself to a minor existential crisis trying to answer the eternal question of 'how much memory do I really need?'

After a week or so of battling the urge, I'll start to feel guilty over just how expensive my chosen laptop is, and slowly but surely, I'll talk myself out of actually buying it.

My current laptop isn't that old, I'll tell myself, it's just seasoned. It's not slow, I'll reason, it's just got personality. I'm sure this old thing will last me a few more years, I'll reassure myself, and slowly, the urge will go back into hibernation.

Until next time it'll say, curling up tight in a corner of my mind, I'll definitely get the best of you next time.
