Sunday, September 11th, 2011

When I was a teenage girl, I lived on the phone. My mother, exasperated with the calls that constantly came in for me (especially when I wasn’t home), even got me my own line directly to my bedroom, and forbade me to give out the main house number to anyone again. It was just a part of growing up; I had a lot of friends who were also big phone users, and so when we weren’t together, we were connecting over the wires.

I bought an Android, because I was looking for something multifunctional to meet my more adult needs, and the many applications available provided that just fine.
