day 6: phone edition

Today’s post was going to be about gay basketball. I was going to relay my experience playing highly competitive team sports with Britney Spears blasting in the background. I was going to talk about how it’s ironically(?) the best consistent run I’ve gotten since moving back to L.A.

And then I came home to find this:

I’m pretty sure you’re not supposed to be able to see straight through the monitor. I have no idea how it happened. I’m not even sure what exactly happened.  I choose to blame the dog.

So here I am, writing day six of my personal #30BlogsIn30Days challenge on my phone, a piece of Samsung technology which has chosen not to fail me for the moment. Perhaps I should be more upset.  This seems like a good moment for a tantrum. But I think I’ll be able to salvage the old one long enough to get what I need off of it.  If not I didn’t need it.

Life notoriously throws roadblocks in the way of one’s goals. Instead of being upset, I’m grateful for a job that allows me to schlep to Best Buy and start over as needed. I’m also grateful for making myself still blog. It’s a lesson that can be applied broadly. Stick to commitments especially when they are hard or inconvenient.

And buy a better laptop.
