I suppose I could give some context - but I encourage you to use your imagination instead.
Yesterday I managed to answer a call on my smart watch for the first time. Before, I would accidentally hang up. But I did it, and everyone around me on the C-Train knew that my prescriptions were ready at the pharmacy (the doctor gave me the wrong paper, I had to call and fax the medical clinic, yadda yadda yadda).
And today my smartphone broke. As in, would not turn on at all. Not even with me pulling out the battery, borrowing a charger from a coworker. I Googled and tried a hard reset. Nothing. So I took it to the Rogers store the next building over. It's under warranty, they will send it away for repair. They gave me an extender so that I can use my SIM card in my old phone - they were out of loaner phones.
I feel a bit annoyed with myself that I trusted Samsung again. When I got my first Samsung three years ago, it also failed within 6 weeks. They lured me in again with the shiny.
I knew that I am more of a smartphone fan than I realized, when I walked from the train platform to the bus stop at the end of the day. Bemoaning the fact that I didn't have a phone on me so I didn't know exactly how cold it was.
A year ago, one of my friends shared that she was choosing a word of the year for 2013, rather than make resolutions. I found that very inspiring and decided to do the same. I was even inspired to use the same word as she:
I nurtured myself in many ways in 2013:
I was very fortunate that my home wasn't affected by the Calgary flood of 2013.
Another exercise for 2013 was a Joy Jar. Each night, I wrote down something that gave me joy in 2013 and put it in a jar. Sometimes I wrote "knitting!" Or "gardening!". Other times it was something like, "Didn't freeze my ass off today!" Calgary has a few deep freezes every year. :-)
I filled up the jar. :-) The final piece of paper says, "Spent New Year's Eve with new friends!"
I've already decided on the word for 2014 ... CREATE.
