It’s funny how people never seem to like doing things that are good for them. its hard to spend that extra 5 minutes putting on sunscreen, or taking that extra 5 minutes to take the stairs instead of the elevator. eventually, people pay big dividends (skin cancer, obesity) because they don’t take the time to do the little things.

anyway, what i really wanna get at is this LIFE SAVING (okay not really life saving) investment that seriously saved me a lot pain and heartache. an amazing ingenius investment called a keyboard protector.

to be honest, i didn’t buy a keyboard protector because it was a smart investment. I just thought it looked pretty with my new macbook. Plus, it made typing more fun since the keys felt softer. However, yesterday I was so so soO thankful for my pretty baby blue keyboard cover when my cup of coffee (which was next to my laptop) tipped over and spilled its contents right onto the keyboard of my macbook. it. was. heartstopping. i let out a audible gasp in the middle of my psychology lecture, got up out of my seat, and carried my baby macbook to the bathroom to cleanup. THANKFULLY, my trusty keyboard cover prevented the coffee from seeping into the cracks of the keys and into my macbook, so it still works! The ten dollars I spent for the cover saved me a lot of money for laptop repairs and heartache (losing my precious lecture notes).

The moral of the story : Buy a keyboard cover. Wear sunscreen. Take the stairs. Eat an apple. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
