Along Abbey Road | A Lifestyle And Family Blog : It's A Jeans And Tee Kind Of Day

1.10.2013

It's A Jeans And Tee Kind Of Day

 Cardigan: F21. Tee: LOFT. Denim: Paige Denim. Socks: Target. Booties: JCPenney. Scarf: H&M.

The technology gods that be are against me. Or against us, I should say. We've spent the last 24 hours phoneless and wasted a whopping 5 hours butting heads and waiting on AT&T employees that don't have a clue about anything, and even less about their job. AT&T, I officially loathe you.

At least now I can say I tried, right? I am beginning to reconsider being tied down to technology, as ironic as that is being a "blogger" and all. It's almost as if the phones and techy gadgets are literally a life support. Having a smartphone for a heart and electrical impulses, tweets, and texts as the blood that courses through our technologically-dependent bodies for the love and addiction of staying connected (blast that FOMO).

Realizing the stress and anguish not having a phone ignited in me, I've spent the last day reconsidering where and in what I place my happiness. My security shouldn't rely on a flimsy block of plastic, circuit boards and batteries. It should be based upon the fact that I have a beautiful family that loves me, a home to keep me warm and sheltered, and freedom to come and go as I please. Note to self: the world will not end if my phone doesn't work for a day.

Needless to say, the minute existential crisis I am undergoing which was sparked by something rather inconsequential has made it a jeans and tee kind of day... for the rest of the month.

I still love the hair. How are you liking it? :)
Oh technology... it's definitely a love hate relationship. For me, it's been the door to making new relationships that were missing from my life (friends? haha). So it's definitely bitter sweet and hard to step back from.

I Love jean and t-shirt day. It's definitely so frustrating how we are so tied to technology. It's the world we live in and somedays I also would like to shut everything down and ignore the world. I just wanted to say that I'm loving your hair.
