    My daughter is a gamer and graphic design student in college, and this would be perfect for her since her old laptop just can’t keep up! My summer wasn’t too bad, I got to travel to Central America and visit Lake Atitlan which was so beautiful with the volcano views surrounding the lake!

  54. This summer I started creating music again. I also decided to start 2 businesses. One is making adult coloring books and the other is a blog and YouTube channel for being better at life.
    On Aug 14th my farther was hospitalized and had emergency surgery then went into cardiac arrest and died for 15 minutes. He is still in icu. While visiting him i dropped my laptop and it no longer turns on. Luckily I am able to do a lot of design work for my coloring books on my ipad. Blogging and editing videos is more difficult on my ipad but I will not be stopped.
    Gaming is another joy that I recently got back into. I would love the opportunity to win one of these machines as I go back into creating after spending 2 weeks sleeping in the hospital with my family.

    Thank you. Regardless of if I win or not, this is a cool giveaway.

  55. My daughter got her teeth fixed. She’s happy, so I’m happy.

  56. Had a really fun day with my daughter and granddaughter.

  57. The good thing that happened to me this summer was being able to indulge my inner geek by going to Toronto and visiting a vintage bookstore that has a vending machine that doles out random vintage books. It was SO COOL! Next trip will be to paint a layer of paint on the largest ball of paint in the world in Indiana!

  58. Laurie Emerson | September 27, 2022 at 10:14 pm |

    After dreaming about it almost all of my life I was finally able to have my own business. It is not a big one but I love to read and love finding hard to find books for others!
