29. Not on it.

Much more pleasant listening to the birds Twittering in my garden while I sketch. DU is already chock full of it but at least those are cherry picked humorous opinions that don’t go on ad nauseum.

I thought I would be terribly addicted to this newfangled iPhone when I first got it. I spent hours on every site that interested me, and was so proud of the commentary that I would contribute.

But as years go by, I find these opinion sites much less interesting and other than DU, skip them all together. Basically I just use my phone now to receive and send texts, check the weather, and set my alarm clock. I’m actually pleasantly surprised that what I thought would be a troubling addiction has not turned into such. Oh… and Amazon. Now that HAS turned into a troubling addiction.
