I just recently put my hands on a mobile phone. Not just any mobile phone, but my very FIRST mobile phone. Yes, you read correctly, my first cell phone. How did I manage to survive without one? How can a blogger not have a cell phone? Well, I managed. When I was away from home, I hoped that wherever I went had WiFi so that I could use my tablet. If I needed to call someone, I hoped that I had a family member with me that I had one. I know I know, Christine it’s 2013! Get yourself a mobile phone!
My FIRST Mobile Phone thanks to:
Lucky for me, the wonderful folks at TELUS decided it was time that I get connected and follow the cell phone craze. What does that mean? It means that I can now call who I want and when I want! Yes, next time I go to a store and can’t decide on what to buy, I can call my husband and ask for his help. Or if my car breaks down, I can call for help! And even more important, if there’s an emergency (like I have a sick child at daycare or at school) they can reach me right away!
During GMCHTA I realized that not having a cell phone was holding me back. My fellow adventurers were able to text each other regarding treasures they found, treasures they were looking for, etc… And I wasn’t able to help them out because I wasn’t “connected“. They were able to communicate with their loved ones anytime anywhere, while I had to wait until we were at the hotel so that I could talk with my family. They were able to share the adventure instantly with their readers and I couldn’t. Do you feel bad for me yet? :)
But I’m connected now!! I have access to the internet wherever I go! I can send Tweets, update my Facebook status and share photos with you via Instagram! YES, I can know say that I’m on Instagram! Isn’t that awesome? Seriously, I can’t get over how fun it is to have access to everything I want whenever I want.
Oh, you’re probably wondering what phone I have. TELUS sent me the Samsung GALAXY S4™! Yes, the cream of the cream of cell phones (from what I hear and so far I agree). I absolutely ADORE the phone! The size is perfect too! I’ve seen a lot of people with smaller cell phones, but I like the large size of this one.
And most important of it all, I feel “safe“ having it. Stay tuned for another post on how having a cell phone with me helps me feel safe.
Do you own a mobile phone? How does it help you in your everyday life?
Thanks for joining me on my first mobile phone journey!
Have a great one!
Disclosure: TELUS kindly sent me a mobile phone to try out. The opinions in this post are 100% my own.
