I Feel Accomplished

I used iTunes successfully for the first time ever today.

(Stop laughing at me.)

The download actually worked. And then creating an account worked and I was able to sign in without some irritating little pop-up box telling me that something was wrong. And then I was able to redeem gift cards a good friend sent me and buy music.

It's amazing. I have a little iTunes icon on my computer and, if I click on it, it works! Music actually starts coming out of my speakers when I push that triangle play button.

I've fought with iTunes before (and lost) but this time I won. Oh yes. I conquered the software. I harnessed it to my computer and now I can use it whenever I want.

It's a pleasant feeling :)


  1. Haha! I haven't had to wrestle with iTunes (my hubby dealt with it so I didn't have to) but I can totally relate to feeling technologically challenged. I'm not tech-savvy and I sometimes have to learn things the really, really annoying and frustrating way. Hooray for you!

  2. Oh, btw, stop by my blog on Monday. I have something for you ;)

  3. You and me both, girl!

    I will do that :)

  4. I laughed a little, I admit. But I've had troubles with iTunes too! On my old computer it would take up to five minutes for the program to open and a long time to download songs. Congrats on getting it to work! :)

  5. I totally lost a piece of my life when I learned how to download music from Amazon. Then another chunk went to the Pandora website where you can personalize your listening choices.
    (BTW, I don't want that former life back...HA)

  6. Krista - Don't worry. I laughed at me too ;)

    Huntress - Lol, I know what you mean! I had Pandora on my old laptop (the lovely Dell one that died on me) but it would always freeze up my computer. I had totally forgot about it until you mentioned it. I think I'll go give it another shot. Maybe it will agree with my new laptop...


Do share your thoughts - I enjoy reading them :)
