The Minion’s 18th birthday is coming up in the first week of September.
Simply put, She needs a laptop. She’s currently using my 11-year old Macintosh iBook, but the problem is that it’s so old, that she can’t get a lot of programs to work on it, and worse yet, a lot of websites won’t even display properly. She’ll need a laptop at college next year, but she’s also really going to need to go online for various application processes (including scholarships) during this upcoming semester at school. So, that’s what we’ve decided to get her.
We had thought that her Mom had promised her one, but it turns out that isn’t happening. (Don’t even get me started)
Our plan is to pool as much as we can get together, and get her the best we can for the money we’ve got, as a single big “this is from everybody who thinks you’re keen– now go out there and kick ass” kinda thing. So far we’ve got the two of us, and various grandparents participating.
If you’d like to participate, let me know.
