I am in the future!
January 29, 2016
I just got my first smartphone. My very first. It was my birthday yesterday, and this was my gift for myself. I’d been thinking about upgrading for like six months and finally decided, this was the week.
All the clerks at the mobile phone place had to come look at my old phone. It was a novelty, a little red Nokia, 7-8 years old. So old they couldn’t port the data onto the new phone. “This is in really good condition for being so old,” one of them said. “Yeah,” I said. “I don’t use it much.” And I really don’t. I’m still not sure if the new phone is going to change that. I actually want to use it more, to take advantage of all the nifty things it can do.
And I’m trying not to be scared of it. I really want to use these powers for good. Like, to actually make travel easier, stuff like that. Better organize my calendar and contacts and to do list and things. I’m taking it in baby steps.
But, yeah. I have a smartphone now. Imagine that.
