情態助動詞:表偏好 Preferences: Prefer, Would prefer, would rather

好累,太久沒錄影片了,一直卡,錄了兩次,第二次總算比較順一點。而且才沒錄多久,就覺得好累喔。昨天發現我的 MacBook 是符合可以更換鍵盤的年份出版的。一買來就覺得這個鍵盤超難打,反饋很差,果然是有問題的。不過符合年份也還要拿去蘋果維修站讓他們檢定,確認有問題才可以換。感覺我這拿去也不會驗出什麼問題。還是算了,還在可以用的範圍內,就打字不好打一點。但是打久了,人也是會適應這不好打的鍵盤。不推MacBook,Air 打字好打多了,不過重量跟大小有關。

最近很久沒發文,一方面是偷懶,一方面是身體不太舒服,藉口偷懶。明天要去看檢驗報告,希望是可以很容易解決的問題,祈禱中,這樣我才能多發廢文啊!星期二了,明天就星期三了,預祝大家小週末愉快!
