that time i joined the 21st century

As some of you may know, I got my first smart phone about ten days ago.  And I am a mess.  I am learning, yes, but just ask anyone who has tried to communicate with me recently and you’ll find that the struggle is real.  I mean, this whole not having a physical keyboard anymore is really cramping my style.  And saving pictures that are texted to me?  Impossible.  I’m finally coming to terms with the fact that I’ll never really ‘get’ Snapchat.  It is a possibility that I am an 80-year-old in a 23-year-old’s body.  (Although that is not giving 80-year-olds enough credit, because I know some of them are more in the loop than me.)

However, there are a few things I have sort of figured out, and some things I am actually really liking.  For example, taking pictures.  This phone takes quality photos!  And, uh, Instagram.  Yes.  I have really gotten into it.  I’ve tried to post one photo a day since I got my phone up and running, and it’s been fun to try to find something each day that I want to remember and capture in a photo.  So, here’s a recap of the past ten-ish days…

(And in the interest of full disclosure, I had to Google “how to email an Instagram to yourself” in order to create this post.  And even then I couldn’t figure it out.  So I messed around some more and finally figured it out.  I think.  I guess we’ll see…)
