But I own an iPhone. I’m enjoying what it can do so far. I primarily use wifi for internet. I didn’t get AT&T’s $25 for 2 gigs of data deal, I went for the cheapest one whatever it was ($15 for 200MB?). Maybe later, but for now I’m just playing with it when I’m bored. The things I like about this phone are things that most all of the phones in it’s class can do.

Lots of people complain about the problems created by having the steel band as the antenna. I’m sure that you’ve seen the “end call” stickers that are available. They point at the bottom left corner where if covered the iPhone looses signal. I haven’t have too much of a problem with it. From what I can see, you actually sort of have to squeeze the phone for a noticeable change. My phone is now in an Otterbox. As much as I loved it bare, I am a clumsy person and can’t even think about how I would feel if I damaged this device. Its worth like what? $800? (I have a 32g.)

I play games while I’m texting. (The texting can get annoying- I love the thread layout, I just hate the lack of information about the messages received, you know like a time stamp? sigh.)  I keep up with the news and follow some blogs. I use yoga apps and track workouts. I have become addicted to Doodle Jump, even though I lack skill when it comes to this game. The high scores are filled by my sister and cousin. Skype now has added video chat abilities, and it was use 3G. Facetime hasn’t even come that far yet. The white version isn’t even available yet.

Apple is forever holding out on us.  I guess when you are so over-hyped you can do things like that.

 

“Just the thought of you can make me smile.” November 17, 2010

This song has been stuck in my head all day long. Just a few more days until I can see one of the most important people in my life. Smiling is what defines our relationship; even during our tough times there have been tearful smiles. I really wonder why though that a few weeks ago I began to miss him so much. I was fine before that knowing that I would see him when I see him. I’m sure it relates to the backwards steps that I feel I have taken since this summer when I started to think about things differently, when I started to grow up. Instead of becoming more mature, I have spiraled downward to where I am now. It sort of makes me nervous to think that I won’t be able to get back up to my wonderfully productive days; I miss the days that consisted of school, work, internship, homework, sleep. Well really I miss the ability to excel during those days. Busyness used to define me, now I’m just burned out.

This morning I woke to the shrill sound of my phone alarm. I was annoyed that my phone was buried under the mountain of blankets and pillows that I sleep with. After locating it and taking one look at my phone I saw that today was going to be just as awful as yesterday. I hurried to call my friend and get her to my house so I could drive her to school. We needed to talk.

It turned out to be not so bad though. I was just scared of everyone being mad at me for being so weak.

Talking about things used to be so easy. These days I find myself just wanting to curl up with a blanket and paper to get things out. I can feel myself slipping away. I remember the dreadful days of sophomore year. That is a time in my life that I don’t want to think about let alone repeat.

The vagueness of my future is really getting to me. Ambition really used to drive me. What happen? I’m just looking for definition in my life I guess. In every way possible.

 

I was the intern who got a promotion. September 30, 2009

I learned to answer phones today while working. Not at the cafe, at the office. Then my mentor casually stated that maybe I could answer phones on Saturdays. I do not intern on Saturdays. Does that sound like her considering hiring me? Well knowing her, no. But I’ll keep my fingers crossed. Maybe I’ll get a promotion from unpaid child labor to minimum wage cheap help.

I enjoy being at the office, it helps me understand the dynamics of the career. Everyone is like one big family. Of course they all take about each other behind each others backs but they are women. When a bunch of women get together that is expected. I am allowed to say this because I am a woman, hear me roar.

That’s it for this little random entry.
