It was a regular day, I was driving and on the phone acting a fool with my girlfriend Tameka (hands free of course) and when I reached my destination I put the phone to my ear and tried to exit my car. Of course I was doing too much and SMASH! My beloved (case-less) iPhone fell to the ground. It was face down but I knew. I just knew the screen was shattered. You know when you drop your phone, you pick it right up and you have that feeling of relief like you dodged a bullet? I didn’t feel confident at all. I turn my phone over and the screen is shattered. ::insert side eye and eye roll here::
After some light drama with an “authorized dealer” I ended up at the Apple Store. My contract was up in 12 days. I went into the Apple Store and looked at the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Considering that I had an iPad mini I chose the iPhone 6, a protective case, Apple Care and set my phone up and headed home. It wasn’t until I got home that I felt relieved. I was mortified at the thought that I had no phone just a few short hours before; I do so much on my phone.
I learned that I need to be “unplugged” weekly. I was too attached to my phone. There, I admitted it. It wasn’t until I got home that I could begin to enjoy my new iPhone because I was so engrossed with getting a new phone that I didn’t really admire my new phone. I love this phone! It is so fast and the larger size is awesome and best of all…I love my pretty pink case. Being so busy with life I would have probably kept my iPhone 5 well into the new year, I had not even considered upgrading. I hated that I ruined my phone but I am like a kid with a new toy with my iPhone 6. It is SO FAST! Have I spent less time attached to my phone? Yes.
You ever have a happy accident?
