Listening to Kelly Clarkson earler this week prompted the inspiration of this blog.So i thought about it and realised how much my life would suck without technology. Am sure all of you who have read my blogs know about my digital addiction.Indeed i would be truly lost and my life would suck without the access to technology.My handbag is a testimony to my addiction external harddrive, memory sticks and now a recent addition of a fully charged spare Blackberry battery.I kid you not i am so afraid of not been connected to the world and missing out on something.Lucky for me my friends are also very smitten with age of technology, one who recently celebrated her birthday said she would be so upset if hubby bought her jewllery when all she wanted was a new external hardrive. See guys yes we do love sparkly gifts but we are also considering digital gifts now . HI everybody my name is Verushka and yes i am addicted to the digital era.I cannot live without my phone and internet access.I did go cold turkey twice but the side effects were terrible mood swings, depression,anger,withdrawl from others are just a few of the symptoms i experienced.Though an addiction is meant to be bad i love mine and cant seem to get enough of this digital drug.ciao for now my digital addicts and in the words of Kelly Clarkson my life would suck without you
It amazes me how techno savy my mum has become in the last 3 weeks since getting a Blackberry . The first few days I almost tore my hair out trying to teach her the basics of BBM and using the phone .Mum was adament she didnt want this silly phone so to make her fall in love with her phone i bought her a pretty cover to make it her own. She was very upset at not having all her contacts , pics and music.I had to console her that i would put in her numbers and get all her stuff back.
This sunday she amazed me by changing her profile pic and updating her status on her own ( proud teacher moment).Mum is getting into coming into the Blackberry world, it was just a matter of time.I guess we are all resistant to change and something new, just takes a little time and eventually we will except the change and move forward.I cringe at where to from here for my new techno savy mum Facebook , Twitter , Blogging I have already had to monitor my BBM status and profile pic updates,
Technology is so fast changing we do need to embrace it , we need to learn , we need to perserve and we need to demand better service and better value for money.
I am a creature of stability and guess change does scare me but life has taught to me embrace the change , explore it , fall in love with it and you never know you might be pleasantly surprised.Ciao for now my techno loving lovelies,,,,,
