Aww yeah, I was one cool middle-schooler. I customized that phone with a dark brown cover and a metal antenna with bright rainbow lights that would flash and flicker when the phone was in use.
Over the years I upgraded my phone, but I never kept up with the latest trends. I was always several years behind, and didn't even get unlimited texting until a few years ago. For more than a decade, the extent of my phones' cababilies were to "just call people." I was very proud of myself in 2011 when I actually got a phone with a keyboard!
(Let's take a break, so we can all laugh at that image. Me, strutting out of Jordan Creek Mall, feeling awesome because I had a phone with a slide-out keyboard. Wow.)
Fast forward to a few weeks ago. My buddy Jess mentioned that we could all go in on a phone plan to reduce costs, and it ended up being a pretty solid plan. So this past weekend, I finally crossed over to the dark side and got an iPhone. It's just a 4 - I couldn't stomach paying $200+ for a 5, and I couldn't justify spending $70 on a 4S just to get Siri.
I feel like a technologically impaired individual. My friends keep laughing at me because I have no idea what I'm doing with this stupid phone. But I shall learn.
Here's my first iPhone photo. Not exactly a masterpiece, but it was late and I was tired. I figured a photo of a cat would be fitting, since the internet loves cats. That's not my cat, by the way. She belongs to Jess.
