Crackberry Love

Creature of Habit and Hater of Change. Thats ME!

I'm not afraid to admit that I'm seriously behind the times in technology and when it comes to upgrading anything...I hate it! I like the comfort of my old stuff and if it's not broke then I'm not going to spend the money to upgrade it. My brother, on the other hand, is a lover of new technology and when something new and cool comes out then he's usually one of the first in line to get it. He's harped on me for years about bringing myself into the world of new technology and I've been so hesitant. Mostly because I hate change!

There have been so many times that he's shoved me into the new world. Like back when digital cameras came out. He had this new cool camera and I was still taking pics on film and having them developed. When he got a new camera then he shoved me into the digital world by giving me his old digital camer and I never looked back. When the girls were old enough for video games, I refused to buy them one. He hooked up his Playstation 2 for them and shoved us right into the game world. I'll admit that we jumped on the Wii bandwagon the year after it came out. Not long ago, he gave Kacey his iPod when he got his new touch one. Years ago, he helped upgrade my dinosaur computer to a new running one. He's always tried to help me get up to speed with the updated technology.

So my cell phone isn't any different. I used to have a flip phone that served it's with everyone at anytime. But then when my plan was due for an upgrade 2 years ago, I got the enV3. Thats what I've had and I LOVED it. There was nothing wrong with it. I could operate it with my eyes closed. I knew where every feature was. I've always had unlimited texting, pics, videos...all that jazz. But then....little did I know my world was about to be rocked!

When Verizon got the iPhone, my brother had only had his Blackberry Storm 2 for about 6 months. When he came home to visit back at Kayleigh's sweet 16 party, I checked it out and he tried to convince me to switch over then. I wasn't ready! So.....I got a package in the mail 2 weeks ago. It was from my brother! In the box were TWO Blackberry Storms, cases and chargers. AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I knew what this meant! It was time to come up in the world. Was I ready? Kinda! I played around with the phone and was totally lost. It was totally touch screen...something that I'd never played with. I took a few days and played with it and had a love/hate relationship with it. I was so used to my phone and where the buttons and features were and this was ALL NEW! The more I played with it, the more I thought...WOWWWW this is REALLY cool! So a week after I got it, I switched it over! I set up my email, added my contacts and transferred my pics from one card to the other.

And now....I can't believe I was missing out on all this! I have my email and internet at a touch and it's nice to be in "new" least its new to me...LOL! You all can giggle all you want cuz I know you think I'm crazy since I sound so old. I'm SOOOOO very thankful for my brother! If it wasn't for him constantly pushing me into new technology then I'd be 20 years behind the times instead of just 10 years...HAHAHA! 

Thanks Bro for all you've done for me! With this new technology, I feel like I have better contact with the outside world. Heehee! Now I just have to figure out all the features that I have :) I did figure out how to get some free game apps....HAHAHAHA!

So in the middle of all the emotional mess lately....I've moved up in the world! For now....I'm in Crackberry Love! <3
