Welcome to the 21st Century
I have been warmly welcomed to the 21st century [thanks Julie]! Why? Because I got a smart phone!
Since we were poor, I never upgraded my old crappy phone to a smart phone. I didn't have 30 extra dollars a month to pay for data... I told myself for the longest time that they were overrated, and that I was doing just fine with my non-internet phone. Who needs Apps anyway!?
But then I saw advertisements for the iphone 4s. It looked so cool, and it had Siri, which was like a free personal secretary. But I thought, oh, I bet the voice recognition sucks. And then my brother got one, and he let me play around with it, and I realized that maybe it wasn't overrated. But I was still poor. So I did nothing.
And then this thing happened. This thing is BIG NEWS, and now that it is official, I think it's safe to announce on the blog. No, I'm not pregnant [sorry Valerie & Vanessa, I didn't mean to get your hopes up]. The big news is: I GOT OFFERED A REAL, BIG GIRL, FULL-TIME WEB DESIGN JOB! With benefits! Making real, good money. I start in less than two weeks. :)
And then, I realized that I wasn't going to be super poor anymore. And I gave in. I rewarded myself with an iPhone. And so far, we are inseparable. I love it [sorry Mariana].
