I’ve been writing a lot about new things lately, and here’s another one because something new is on my horizon. A new computer, to be specific. Mine has been BSODing all over the place, and I think it is not long for this world. I haven’t lost any writing yet, but I believe when you’re given the signs you heed them.
So today while I’m running the backup that I thought my computer was running, I am blogging from my phone. That’s right, my phone. I’ve definitely never done this before. New things!
I’m a pretty slow phone typist, so I’m alternating between typing and using the Voice app. And my phone seems to insist on capitalizing Voice app. It also doesn’t like to start a sentence with a capital letter, but I guess that’s a minor issue?
There are so many ways to get things done these days. There is no one way for anything anymore. Is this the best way to do it? I don’t really think so, it feels so cumbersome and just odd. Though maybe the talking is faster than typing. At least when the app gets it right.
But I guess what I’m saying is it’s okay to do things differently even if there is one way you’ve always done them, even if the new way feels awkward. Even if something weird happens and you lose half of the last paragraph. Not that that is what just happened, except it is.
Sometimes new things have kinks to work out. Sometimes we have to feel our way until we figure out what the heck we’re doing. And sometimes we have to sit in that awkward feeling and push through until we are done. Like I am now.
Look at this! it’s a phone blog post!
