I Sometimes Hate Technology

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 230 People

    I am so technology challenged.

    Certain things I can figure out fairly easily, but some things just seem like brain surgery to me. I just got a new phone and I spent a good hour and a half trying to transfer my contacts to no avail. I ended up just manually entering them in. I wouldn't even have gotten a...

    Especially mobile phone stuff.

    Computer stuff I can handle, but there's barely any good freeware on app stores that are any good at all. Nearly everything either malfunctions, bugs out, spreads viruses or...costs something. And the ones that are none of those things tend to be social media. And there's not...

    I want to text him but I don't want to crack.

    It's like this weird thing where I want to show I'm interested in him, but not too interested. Because I don't know if he's interested back. Wouldn't he be texting me if he were really interested?! Oh my god here I go again with the overthinking. I hate this game. The game of...

    Traveling with everything is the worst: all the

    different chargers. And hotels still assume that people use alarm clocks (????) and never have enough outlets near the bed. I love the screen size of the new iPhone 6 Plus, but it's a beast to fit into a purse or pocket.

    Childhood Vanishing, Piece By Piece

    The internet is making my childhood crumble. Anyone older than a teen can understand what I'm saying. People don't talk to each other anymore, privacy is almost non existent, stores like Blockbuster are closing because of netflix. I'm just not here for it. Kids growing up won't...

    Is It Making Or Breaking You?

    The world has changed incredibly in just the last ten years. I once heard a 'truism' that read "Technology will make or break us." Well, I think it will definitely being making half of us and breaking the other half. Personally, I hate it. Don't get me wrong, when I am heading to...

    Technology has ruined all of us.
