I have an iphone. Now, for most of you reading this, this is no big deal, as you have all had smart phones for quite some time. But for me, who has been using a phone that was mediocre at best, this is exciting and worthy of its own post. All through highschool and college I used a phone that I affectionately and descriptively referred to as the Brick. Remember those cell phones in One Fine Day?Pretty much like that. When the Brick finally fell apart, I got a phone that was one step up, but still 5 steps down from smart phone-hood.
But now I have an iphone.
I too can waste time Instagramming random things and making them look artsy. I too can check my email and Facebook way more than necessary. And I too can leave maps at home, give up all sense of direction, and follow a blinking blue dot to my destination. I still am not really sure how to use my phone, and I still text with one finger (but hey, I still only really type with 6 fingers), but I could do so much. In theory, I have twitter, but I a) don’t really think people need to know or care about random facts of my day b) stress too much about phrasing witty moments of my day with so few characters and c) #donotunderstandhashtags. Pretty much it seems like twitter is like a lame facebook status without the gratification of likes and comments. Thoughts?
But I have entered the smart phone world. And now I can make random collages of disjointed moments from my life. Here’s the past week.sunshine. wedding prep. the General. summer evenings. this peach cake. besties. chores with the animals. picnics in the park. friends. pretty things.
