I’M FREEEEEE!

After a month chock-full-o-classes, I’M FREE! No more 6 hours of classes each day. No more quizzes everyday. No more frustration.

Now that I’m free, I can resume normal life again. I’ve got so much to tell you about, including but not limited to:

  • My matching purchases
  • Attempted murder of the Nokia
  • The new chick in my life
  • The Gerelaxer v2

Big things!
Big things.

Three months later and I’m victorious!

The family weight challenge, which started on March 3rd ended yesterday with a STUNNING upset by Geremy. I weighed myself last night and saw that I lost 15.5lbs, half of a pound more than I needed to. I immediately grabbed the winning money and paraded around the house screaming, “HAAA!!! YOU CAN’T HOLD ME! YOU LOSE, I WIN!”

I win.

Nokia

I got rid of my three month old cell phone and have been using my 5 year old cellphone instead, all because of my crazy cell phone theory.

I made the decision to sell my Dell Axim on 5/21/06 and got it sold within one week of my announcement (with a profit margin of over 50%). After shipping the handheld to its new owner, I realized my dire need for a portable scheduling device. After taking a couple of days to research my options I came to a decision to purchase another “all-in-one” device, much like the T-Mobile Sidekick II. But there was a problem. Since my current phone is so amazing, a new phone wouldn’t seem like that big of an upgrade, so I came up with a plan to solve the problem. I call it “the low end theory.”

My Tacky Cell Phone Hierarchy Theory

My theory
If I got rid of the mobile luxuries that I’ve come to enjoy, such as ringtones that sound like a live band performing in my pocket and jiggapixel phone cameras, and suffer myself to live in the “olden days,” I will appreciate the features a lot more when they arrive in my next phone.

So that’s exactly what I did.

I went into my vintage electronics box that was in the far corner of the attic, between my Teddy Ruxpin and my Pet Rock, and I got my Nokia 3390, which I purchased when I was a sophomore in high school for $260. The phone was in great condition, the battery was fully charged, and it reminded me of how cool I thought I used to think that I thought I think I felt when I was 15.

I gave my three month old Motorola to my mom and popped my T-Mobile sim card into the Nokia. The phone had many luxury features, such as a volume up button, a volume down button, a microphone, and a trendy “Nokia” badge on the back. My plan is to use the phone for 15 days to get fully acclimated with the old technology and then buy a new phone to bring myself to the top of the cell-phone totem pole.

The Nokia might be heavy, tacky and antique but it’s a small price to pay to see the look on a strangers face after hearing my generic “brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrring” ringtone.
