SO…I’m kind of a tech nerd. I currently own the following:
- iPod Touch
- iPhone 5
- iPad 2
- White Macbook
- Canon Point and Shoot Digital Camera
- Panasonic SuperZoom Digital Camera
- Nikon Film Camera
- Playstation 3
And I want to buy so much more…Here is what I want:
- Good Quality (low-cost) speakers
- Very good Receiver, capable of 5.1 surround, with multiple HDMI slots, and AirPlay
- AppleTV…the small one, not the one that is rumored
- Medium Quality record player — of course I’m going to need lots of Vinyl too for this
- Updated Television…not asking for something crazy…I’ve had my Sony for 8 years now…I’ve been patient. Maybe next year!
- Burr Coffee Grinder…my brother-in-law had one this Xmas…it was awesome
- Macbook Air
- New iMac
- Higher End Digital Camera
- Lots of different image editing, web design, graphic design software
- High Quality headphones for listening to my music cranked!
- Heart Rate Monitor — trying to lose some fat here
- New CD player for my car
- New speakers for my car
- Nintendo Wii U — I am willing to wait on this one. I think my kids would like this more than I, and they can be fun games to play together as a family
I think that’s it. For now…
Doesn’t that list seem a little ridiculous? I mean, I just came up with that off the top of my head. There is positively no reason that I need to invest nearly $10,000 into all of the crap listed above…really. I wonder why I really want these things? Is there something that’s lacking in me that looks towards technology as the answer? I wonder if it’s the same reason that I want all sorts of notebooks and padfolios to write in. Why do I need something special to write in, when all I really need is the paper and pencil that is readily available?
I believe it has something to do with my lack of faith in God and my trust in tangible items. I want that to change…how do I go about such change? Do I consciously strive to find evidence of that which can’t be scientifically proven? Is the answer right in front of me? I don’t know…and maybe that’s the best place to start.
