I’ve already covered the many reasons why I love my new Intel tablet back in August, but it’s time for a quick update.
Above you can see what my day looks like at the office of a client I’m working on social media strategy with. You can also see my far too expensive salted caramel mocha habit, damn you Starbucks!
As I noted before, I used to have to drag around my giant heavy laptop on days like this, when I’m working in the office. Those days are now a distant memory, thankfully. My back is in glorious recovery from that pain.
My Asus tablet still runs like a charm, holds a charge all day, and it no longer disconnects from the keyboard if moved too much (like when I’m typing on my lap in bed). It has settled into itself quite beautifully.
When I’m home, lately I find myself using the tablet more than my work laptop because it is so small and convenient, and there’s nothing I can’t do with it. I have even gotten used to the smaller keyboard and can easily write my freelance articles in Microsoft Word without noticing too much of a difference.
My typical workday goes a little something like this:
- Checking and answering the myriad of emails I somehow receive before I wake up.
- Sharing a new blogpost and a couple articles I find interesting.
- Writing an article or two for the websites I freelance for in the AM.
- Heading to a clients office or an editorial meeting after lunch, with my tablet in my purse.
- Working on it until the end of day with my coffee close by.
- Buying some dinner on my way home (still working on that whole cooking thing some people manage to do with ease).
- Heading home where I will answer more emails and try to write some more – but more likely will watch episodes of The Mindy Project or whatever has been recommended to me lately (what up, The League.)
Speaking of learning to cook, I’ve been pulling up simple recipes from sites like Fresh Canteen on my tablet while I attempt to finally learn this skill.
I can leave the tablet on the counter or kitchen table with the ingredients and instructions on the screen in full view for easy access while I fumble around the kitchen trying not to mess anything up. It is incredibly convenient and saves me printing the recipe out. But more on my cooking adventures later.
That is essentially what my average day looks like trying to balance writing, blogging and social media clients while running around the city. Thank god for tiny, useful tablet computers.
