My company bought me a Macbook for work. I’ve never owned one before, but I’m excited to be a part of the cool club. The first step is owning a Macbook. Check. The second step is covering it in stickers. When I first got the machine I really didn’t plan on doing this, since it really is sort of a cliche about Macbook owners…but the more I thought about it the less I cared. The wide open space of the laptop lid is just begging to be decorated. It took a while for me to decide what to put on there. I considered miscellaneous beer stickers, but I didn’t want to be “the beer guy.” Then I remembered that a few months ago my Loot Crate had come with a large batch of Tetris stickers.
They shared a few customer pictures of places other people had put theirs, and I think I saw other laptops on there…but everyone else was just designing shapes like skulls and hearts out of the pieces. That’s cool, I guess, but I didn’t really care for it. Instead I just filled mine with the pieces like a giant Tetris gameboard. I think it looks pretty cool. Hopefully the pieces don’t all just fall off as I pull it in and out of my bag.
I wish I could say that I meticulously lined up all of the pieces to a grid, but I just don’t have that much patience. I did the best I could freehand, though. I started out with a small section on the bottom right, with a pattern I pulled off a Tetris web forum that would result in clearing the board. That was all I originally planned on doing, but it just looked so small and lonely that I just expanded it with random piece placement.
My next step in joining the cool club is putting these patches on my messenger bag:
