Mactris

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:
