📲Confessions of A Cell Phone Addict

Stephy Says 💋 I will be the 1st person to loudly & proudly admit that I am addicted to my cell phone. There is no point in time that I can be without my phone. Some of the older generation would probably say that it’s an unhealthy addiction, but of course, I beg to differ. 

There are times that I use my cell phone for business such as marketing, blogging, networking, and building a brand. However, most of the time, it’s for personal enjoyment. 

Don’t you love the thrill of receiving a text message from that special someone? Or the nagging notifications you receive from posts that have absolutely nothing to do with you…

From time to time, I often wonder what I did without a cell phone. I am kind of a sociable loner, like a lot of people I know, but I am mostly alone. My phone saves my life & keeps me entertained. 

I got my first cell phone was I was 13. Back then, it was the regular old flip phone that lacked a LCD screen. No screen meant I had to physically open the phone to see who was calling. Texting wasn’t quite a thing back then, or at least not for everyday conversation. Texting was only used for “important” times or emergencies and the templates included:

 Sorry, in a meeting.
 I’ll call you back.
 Sorry, unable to talk.

Not to mention, you had to push the button a million times to finally get to the letter you wanted. Might I add, that phone was also prepaid on a Verizon network. After that, the flip phones started upgrading to those fancy Motorola Razors. I had the sleek gray one. I went through almost every phone phase. That’s one of the joys of being an addict. Just to name a few, I had the Rumor, Blackberry Curve, Blackberry Storm, Chocolate, iPhone 4, Galaxy S6, iPhone 6, and now the iPhone 8s Plus. Of course, I want the new iPhone, partly because I feel like it will have better features, but I mostly want it because it’s new. 

So, as a phone addict, let me tell you my absolute favorite apps

 Twitter (follow me @1STEPahed) just to shoot the breeze with complete strangers or talk to myself lol
 Pinterest (follow me @ www.pinterest.com/1STEPahed) just to see the latest makeup trends, fashion trends, marketing ideas for the blog, tattoo ideas, and random cute puppies & turtles.
 Instagram (follow me @ijs_stephysays) which is basically a picture diary & I can see everyone else’s life & they can see mine. I also use it for marketing.
 Facebook & Facebook Pages (like me on Facebook www.facebook.com/stephy-says) for personal use as well as business use. I connect with people or just scroll down my newsfeed & browse comments under the juicy statuses. 
 Swiftkey– it allows me to personalize my keyboard. Personalization was one of the abilities I thought I lost when I switched to iPhone. 
 Buzzfeed because I love the random quizzes & posts they share. 
 Spinrilla to download all my music for free & it doesn’t use my data to play my favorite song like Pandora (although, I love Pandora).
 Flo just to keep track of my lady events, if you know what I mean.

The games I downloaded are:

 Family Guy Quest for stuff (a really pointless & stupid game, but highly addictive)
 Homescapes (help a young man salvage the mansion of his parents by completing levels & obtaining stars to complete tasks)
 Cookie Jam (similar to Candy Crush where arrange pieces into intervals of 3 to watch them disappear)
 Helix Jump (a game in which you have to successfully complete the puzzle without touching the “no no” pieces)
They’re all kind of boring now.

Let me give you some brief positives of being a phone addict

± people call you in emergencies because they know you are dependable & always answer your phone
± you’re a well of information when people need answers because they ask you to Google, thus making you an essential resource.

The negative is YOUR PHONE DIES FAST !!

What are some apps you have on your phone?
