I'm so 2000 and late
I didn't get my first real cell phone until the second year of sophomore year of college. That would be 2005/2006. Nowadays everyone is so technologically advanced that it's really hard to keep up. One of my students saw my phone today, and asked if my phone flipped two ways. And I replied in the negative. I just recently upgraded. Two types of flip is way too advanced for me.
I currently settled on this bad boy because of technical difficulties with the others:
Anyways, apparently his cell phone does. He's eight years old. What does he need a cell phone for? What does anyone under the age of 18 need a cell phone for?
When I was in undergrad and I needed to contact someone----which really wasn't anyone except my dad to tell him to pick me up, because well, another thing I'm late in doing, is getting my license-----I would go to a pay phone.
I would find loose change in my purse and call my dad. Yes, I did feel super lame doing it and was just as equally embarrassed. My parents didn't think it was a necessity at the time, so they didn't get me one.
Currently, if you don't have a phone by the time you are in middle school, you are uncool. Why?
And just a year ago, I finally gave in and got unlimited texting and learned the functions of texting with T9. But even with texting, I've realized that I'm behind because I don't have a keyboard on my phone.
For most of my life, my family has had one of these as well:
Yup, with the bunny ear antennas and everything.
We didn't get a newer T.V. until about two or three years ago. And even that's not plasma/flat screen T.V.
Just recently, like two weeks ago, I made my first purchase of my very first laptop. Alhamdulilah. And had my first web cam conversation/chat with my cousin. Lol. It was very entertaining.
Obviously I'm extremely slow when it comes to catching up with the 21st century.
Eh, whatever floats ones boat, right?
