Am I the only one not glued to the TV or some other news spreading device, counting the remaining possibilities for either candidate to win? Or has everyone else gone to bed and are sleeping through the election results and the resulting media sensationalization. I may never know. But I do know this: Change is Hard. And it's really hard for me...
As you may recall I have buried my old iPhone and gone 'droid (I can not tell you how hard it made me work to drop the an and NOT capitalize the 'droid).
Change is hard. Unless something unforeseen happens in the wee smalls, we will awaken to a Republican President, House, and Senate. I can't recall the last time that occurred and I don't care to Google it at this time. "What?! ML's NOT going to Google it?" You might be asking yourselves. Or not.
Getting back to change being hard--not only will the country be in for some hard changes, but more importantly *I* am in for some hard changes. You see, I hated being held hostage by my iPhone because I don't have a way to download my photos to a non-computer external drive--unless I want to print all 6K+ photos at the Walgreens photo kiosk. Do you want to be the customer behind me? I don't even want to be the customer behind me in that scenario. So I promised myself when the iPhone bit the dust, rather than upgrade I would divorce it.
Apple emancipation day finally arrived thid past Saturday. As with any breakup, it came with a cost.
I miss my screen savers of Bandit, and an old photo of Daddy as a kid (my Sister Robin is his spitting image in this photo). But I love the freedom of knowing all my future photos will download directly to my already installed card and my phone can never hold me in bondage again.
And now that I have storage, I have reinstalled a couple of games I played. And I finally have the storage to download the Kindle app. So, even though I have read them, and have autographed copies of the first three books in the Chilton Crosse series written by my friend, Traci Borum, I downloaded them. All three of tgem. See, I'm learning and growing and changing. At least I'm attempting new stuff.
I have photos going to my chippy thingy, and room for apps, life in M'Lou's tech-world is good, right? Not so fast.
The larger phone is cramping my wrist, iy doesn't fit into anything I own (clothing pockets, wallet, or purse), and the screen is driving me bonkers. So, I'm gonna have to adjust.
Just like our country.
No matter if your candidate won or lost. We ALL have to adjust our big girl and big boy panties and get over this election.
And if anyone has time after panty-adjusting, I could sure use some 'droid tech-tutoring. I especially want to sync it to my SUV so I can continue to answer my phone hands free--and annoy my friends by talking with them from what sounds like the interior of a tin can on roller skates.
(I'm losing steam so I'm going to bed sans editing. I see its a Republican sweep--House, Senate, and President. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth in some quarters. Not in mine. But we will ALL experience change.)
