Welcome back to the world, Zoe!

Does it sound sad, that I have now got a computer again and I feel like I am finally back in the real world?
Obviously, I don’t mean the REAL world, but I feel like I have finally re-entered the world that I was/am so involved within.

I didn’t take my MacBook travelling with me as it was so heavy and I was scared incase I lost it or damaged it – but as soon as I apart from it, I felt like half of me had disappeared! Sad it sounds, I know.. but I am a Graphic Designer, blogger and vlogger, so I am use to being on my MacBook 24/7!

I had come to realise that it is pretty tricky without having your own personal computer, as it made a lot of things not particularly difficult, but more time consuming. These things are like video editing as this limits the amount of things you can do and takes a lot longer on an iPad, for example! But the main one for me would be the whole applying for jobs situation, as you can’t send a CV off, unless it’s in an email – also, I am loving the freedom of being able to save my videos and photos properly again! Reassurance for where they are going to be saved, too!

Do any of you feel this way, or is it just me being a typical new generation person that pretty much runs her life around technology? Don’t get me wrong, I could go without technology if need be, but the ache to be connected and more organised is there! 😀

Anyone gone travelling without devices? Gave up on technology? Had to give it up?
Tell me your thoughts, I’d love to hear if anyone sounds as “insane” as me!

I need to sell some books! Help?

Ok, it has come to that time where I have to sell the books that I have been using during my time in university. They are mainly design books and some are books on comics/graphic novels/film adaptations. I am not too sure on how to go about this, but ebay seems a little bit daunting and long, whilst I have no idea what is going on with the Amazon selling method!

SOOO.. I am thinking of posting a few on here, just incase there are any design/comic book related people out there! Quite a few of these books are really big and heavy, so I would have to check out the postage for them – but I will be posting photos of the books tomorrow, to show you all! Some were bought brand new and still look it, whilst some were bought used (some are ex-library books too..)

A few of these books include: A Smile In The Mind, The Art Of Looking Sideways, Kick Ass: Creating The Comic, Art Of X-Men: Last Stand, The Essential Guide To World Comic Books, Creative Advertising, May Contain Graphic Material..

If anyone has any other good book selling methods, which is actually worth it, then let me know! As I have looked up some websites like music magpie (but book alternatives, obviously) and they only give you a TINY bit of money (30p-£2.00) for books that I paid £30-40 for!
