Oh I love new gadgets and things, I am just like a little child in a candy store when it comes to chose a new computer or a new phone but I often forgot I am just a simple hobbit , therefore with very simple needs when it comes to the latest technology...in short I am asking myself, do I really need to be connected all the time? Maybe it is just me, I am not that old you see, but I was still born in a time ( which was not really that long ago ) when we really did not have (need?) all this technology, a time when people used to still write real letter and envelopes, do you remember how a stamp looks like? A time when phoning a friend was something real special .
Awww the memories of little me waiting for a boyfriend's call for a whole afternoon sitting my my home phone in fear to miss that call. Oh well, welcome to the 21st century hobbit - now we spend our lives on Twitter, Facebook, and Google + , sending and receiving messages constantly, making phone calls as we travel, sharing and connecting, and yet...even so, sometime I can still feel...lonely, like if I don't belong to this time and this world. Today finally my phone has been activated and I spent the last few hours trying to connect to my Gmail account and let the phone find out my exact location, without success. Apparently I am not living anywhere on this planet 'No Current Location Found' , and my Gmail is simply refusing to be used via the new phone *sigh*. Indeed , easy to say 'go and read the instruction manual, Lei ' I would do that if I could, problem is that the one that came with the phone only tells you how to use the charger....all the other stuff you must guess, and good luck to you.
Oh yes yes...I will go and find out about why I am so technologically challenged on the internet later, but I gave up for now and seriously considering going back to use my owl Cornelius to send letters written on real paper to people I know. Please feel free to laugh at me, I am trying to do that too, though I had a strange week. On a positive note I was given the all-clear by the doctors after my annual check-up. Breast-cancer runs in my family so I have regular checks done every year. It does scare me every time, and often I really wish I could avoid having to do this, but then I remember my Nana , my grandmother, and I go. I went for my check-up last week and was recalled yesterday and I did not know why , was really scared, and felt dizzy all the way to the clinic, but thankfully it was just a small follow up, to let me know all has come back negative and that I should go back for an other test in about a year or so. Thank you for giving me the fright of my life, Mr Doctor...see you not too soon I hope. So here I am, with the latest in phone/tablet technology on my desk unable to determine exactly where I am on this planet , unable to read my mail...good thing I still have my old trusted home phone, feel free to laugh!
