Ahhh...the beginning of a new era...

Wow, I can't believe I am actually starting a blog. This is a pretty big deal for me. If you know me, you probably know I am "technologically-challenged", as my boss would say. For instance:

- I don't have a digital camera (there's something so great and old-school about having the physical pictures in my hands and in my photo albums)
- I don't own an iPod or anything like that
- I am not a huge fan of cell phones. They kind of bug. I only have one in case my car breaks down or something.
- I don't have a Palm Pilot (what are those things called? Blackberries? Blueberries? Strawberries? haha)
- I don't have a computer and I can barely navigate around on the ones I work on. I enjoy emailing and such...but...um...that's about it. Oh, and right now I am working with high schoolers and I had no idea what "My Space" was...which apparently is a crime. My bad.

Maybe this makes me 5 or 10 years behind in technology. But you know what? I'm ok with that. I'm actually really ok with that. I remember life without all that and it was fine. And life was still fun! Plus, I could totally see how that sort of stuff could clutter my life and make me all "I-have-to-get-the-next-best-thing!!!" ish.

So, I guess all I want to say is that I enjoy living simply.

However, I am venturing into the world of blogging. I guess that is very "2005" of me. I am really excited to see how this goes. I think I am going to dig it. Forgive me if I don't know computer shortcuts or lingo or if my blog doesn't have many fun pictures or razzle-dazzles. I just think it will be cool to share from my heart and see where that goes.

May the adventure begin...

Amen to that sistah-friend! I love your whole first blog entry girl! I totally agree, especially since you basically also described my life and mentality on technology. And you know what? I get along just fine without it. I'm dependent enough on technology as it is (hello my multiple tv programs)!
