Don’t get excited.

I’m about to talk about technology but don’t get used to this: I don’t do techy things very often.
Now I desperately need to get a new phone. My current phone freezes, occasionally won’t send texts and isn’t too keen on Instagram (which is a shame because I am!).
I ordered the phone I currently have off the internet without doing any real research into it first… And I’m determined not to make the same mistake again!
I like to think that, in terms of technology, I am easily pleased. I want a phone that can take pictures (and send them), handle the social media platforms I frequently use and, most importantly, make and receive calls and have a functioning text messaging service. Is that too much to ask for? No, I didn’t think so either!
And this is where you can get involved!
I need some advice on phones and which are good and which aren’t. I would go into a shop and speak to the people there but I’m sure I’d end up buying something stupidly expensive that I don’t even like. I am easily persuaded by people in shops. Seriously.
So here’s the main point of this post: what phones do people recommend?
Muchly appreciated.

Song of the week: week 29.

Yippeeeeeeeee, it’s back!
Recently, I’ve been putting some of my older music onto my ipod and I’ve been going back to songs from one of my favourite summers: 2007.
I’ve been getting a bit addicted to “The Feeling” and, as a result of that, this week’s song of the week is “Rosé”.
I don’t think I understood the alcohol related context the first time round so it makes a lot more sense now. I don’t actually like the drink but that’s beside the point.
I don’t know why I like the song, it just appeals to me.

Well that lasted long.

I reckon I’ll just be an occasional blogger now. I thought I’d get back into the swing of it more during unemployment but alas, I am lazy. And I use the internet for other things (mostly OITNB related…) and forget that I have a blog.
Hello blog.
I’ve now finished painting my room (hurray!) and I’m enjoying my new bed more than I should be. I’ve started having regular bed naps where before I would have a sofa nap. I am an ever changing woman.
Career wise my life is much the same: lots of looking and not a lot of finding. It’s a bit like playing hide and seek in the dark, in a mansion, with a person that gave up after 5 minutes and left the building. I’m searching for something that just isn’t out there. Yuck, that was horribly philosophical for 11:45 at night.
I want to get back to blogging. I love the structure of it and I enjoy getting feedback and hearing about everyone else’s lives but the motivation isn’t there.
I’ve got an idea for a couple of blogging avenues that I may pursue but they’re both quite personal and, although I’ve put personal content on here before, this may be the most personal project to date.
I’m still very much in love with my camera and use it at every opportunity I get (my cats are my main muses). I’ve moved away from landscapes now though and seem to have a fascination for buildings and people. This will, no doubt, change again soon.
This is a ramble post. I should have stopped writing by now.
I uncovered a lot of things while I tidied and re-decorated my room. One of those things was a list I compiled at the age of 12 detailing over 100 things I wanted to do before I died. I am proud (and ashamed) that I have been able to cross quite a few things off and I was amused by what goals I set myself. A friend suggested I write a new list of things I want to do before I’m 30. I worry that I’ll blink and I’ll be 30 and jobless, childless and wifeless. Those are probably the three main things I’d like to secure before turning 30.
I feel annoyed that I let my blogging slip (along with other things like my weight loss…) and I have a schedule all ready for me to start using again. And, before I forget, I have a fairly substantial amount of money I collected from doing my brief stint of “Skinny Wagg” that should be sent to the appropriate charity. (I need to check what charity that was again…)
I might try and revive this blog after all. I don’t think I’m quite finished with it yet.
