10 Reasons I Should Lose My Technology License

May 1, 2015

1. I saw two old friends in the past 2 days and took zero selfies. I’m not even sure if the visits even happened now.
2. I have 60k miles on my car and JUST figured out I can plug in my iPhone with Spotify to listen to music as I drive. I have spent the past four years listening to NPR instead.
3. I have Apple TV and I really have no idea on earth what it is for.
4. I skipped Mom 2.0
5. I keep telling people that SharePoint can do things that it absolutely cannot do, then I spend days reading forums trying to figure out how to do them.
6. I still haven’t moved to
7. I have an iPhone 4 and am pretty disinterested in getting anything else yet (I also have a 5, for work).
8. I have one phone for work and another for home. Call me Hillary.
9. I have never promoted a blog post on Pinterest.
10. I can eat whole meals with friends and not look at my phone once.
11. Bonus: I did not put a photo on this post.

    I don’t have a phone that will text, download data or other such stuff. My cell phone is a phone. My computer is 8 years old. I don’t Skype, twitter, or pinterest. I use Word for manuscript type writing, or a pencil. I use a dictionary to check spelling.

      It would be fun to Skype with you. I always forget about it.

    My eye doctor texted me with an appointment reminder and instructions to text back “YES” to confirm, so I did. That was my first text ever, and it happened … today. True story.

      Whaaaat? I am not a big texter, but I manage a couple a day. Yesterday I saw the video of the woman texting in the middle of the prayer at her wedding. Her husband actually murmured “Praise Jesus” to try to get her attention, but nope. She kept clicking away.

    There’s a button in the console of my car that I didn’t know what it did for well over the first year of owning the car. The first time Michael rode in my car he said “What’s this do?” and I freaked out. I told him not to push it because I didn’t know what it did. It changes the color of the console lights. Also, I had my car for two years before I realized that I had a rear window washer.

      Funny. I love that Michael noticed it right away. What colors? Mine are a cool blue, which I love.

        I have quite the range of the color spectrum. It goes through the whole rainbow. I like to leave it on purple.

    I am afraid of FaceTime and Skype. My thing where I hashtag a Tweet to send it to Facebook, too, is broken and I’m bereft. I’ve never used Pinterest. I’ve only even tried to hangout on Google once and failed miserably.
