Android

Once again I am testing out my ability to post remotely. The problem with my iPod app was that I had to be connected to wifi to post from it, which meant I was probably close enough to a computer I could use instead. I now have the app on my phone, which means I can literally post from anywhere, anytime.

Which means, my dear friends, that you might meet Drunk Valerie someday. Though I sincerly hope this is not the case.

The fact that this phone, and others like it, is called an Android makes me nervous. Weren’t there post-apolcalyptic movies about this? Machines taking over, replacing humans entirely? Because I’d be lying if I said there wasn’t a moment or two this weekend where I genuinely felt like my phone might be smarter than me.

It’s called Cliq and it’s a little sassy. Don’t tell my old phone, but I rather liked the intellectual dominance, despite my frequent outburts stating the opposite.  Though, it is interesting how many things are instinctual on this phone. It comes equipped with the ability to swipey-type and it makes me feel like my phone is reading my mind.

Which sometimes becomes overwhelming, so I’m glad I allowed my separation anxiety at the thought of not having a qwerty keyboard influence my phone decision.

So, although change makes me uncomfortable and itchy, the transition has been going well. I did lose all of my saved voicemails, a loss I was not prepared for, but my old phone can still display texts I’ve hoarded, so I wasn’t completely heartbroken.

By the way, I would like to point out that this is my second post from the bus in which I don’t have any major complaints.

I think the universe still feels bad about the nine hour bus ride from hell.
