One way the universe shows us it’s cruel is the idea of shopping therapy. As humans, we like new things. I personally like gadgets. Typically, women like shoes. There’s something in each of us that makes us happy to shop and buy. The problem is it works best when we’re poor.
I’ve been living the poverty lifestyle for a couple of years now and few things make me happier than having the opportunity to buy something new and not have it ruin my budget for the month or the week.
I did that today. I bought a new toy and it’s almost as good as I had hoped. Considering it was $39 and that the comparable products on the same page where 100 and 200 and 700 and $1,200. I figured for $39 I’d give it a try and if it helped in any way that was a big bonus.
And it did It’s solved almost, my frustration with my main webcam. My life in this 12×12 room has three basic positions for me to sit in. Sit up by the door, in gront pf yhe vomuyer and laying on bed gor rest or TV.
Although it’s designed for a cell phone, ot perfectly fits the webcam but I have fiddle a little bit to find a position that works well for all three of my seating locations. Because laying down in the bed is so much lower than sitting up in the computer and the device doesn’t actually move up and down, just right and left.
But even still it’s a pretty cool gadget and I suspect it will be eben better when I mount it on a tripod and use it outside or in the kitchen. It’s fast enough to track any movements. Sometimes even a little bit too accurately if I happen to just nod my head for a moment.
It’s still a new toy so I’m playing but I’m happy. And it didn’t affect my budget at all because I had the cash and I’ve paid my bills and I might have enough left to buy a pizza or two.
A nice wsy to end the otherwise uneventful day.
