Intermission

In the beginning of each month, I challenge myself with the goal of publishing at least one post per day. Despite my laptop's sorry state (screen cracked), and even while traveling, I was doing well for the month of June.

That was until the other day, when my iPhone was stolen in Megamall.

From my first pager (which I purchased with my very first paycheck from YoungStar when I was a highschool freshman in 1996!) to my first mobile phone in 3rd year high (which I also saved up for), I have NEVER lost a phone, and was always proud of the fact that I was able to keep a phone for at least 4 years before having to replace it. That is, until now. But 1996 to 2012--that's a 16-year streak! I guess it's still something to be proud of.

But, what's done is done, and my ever pro-active, positive and supportive husband took me to the mall yesterday, and got a new phone with me. I am still trying to "rebuild" my life, though. It's heartbreaking, but just like my best friend Gin and I used to say in high school, L.G.O!!! Life goes on! :P What has this experience taught me? I learned that the end of the day, a laptop is just a laptop, a phone is just a phone, and iCloud is just AMAZING. Haha!

I'm okay now, but I just want to forget about what happened for a bit by staying away from technology until the week ends. I will be back on regular programming next week, with a continuation of last week's travel adventures, and the schedule for the next craft events. See you then! :)
