in case you thought you were in for a biology lesson, no need to fear, i promise, this isn't anything like biology. rather, we will be dissecting emily's prone and inevitable ability to break phones in a matter of 8 months or so. some call it a disease. i call it a talent.
1st phone: received as a sophomore. lasted a few years and then i gave to my mom. I hated it so much i threw it against the walls and it never broke--that was seriously the most durable piece of machinery there was.
2nd phone: not pictured (thats because its so old--no one uses it anymore!) but it was t-mobile samsung that I actually loved. my friend also gave it to me.
3rd: the same friend gave me this phone. it worked until i got here to provo and it just hung up on every call i was on and was being stupid. it now resides in the garbage.
4th: bought from Wal-Mart a day before college started. it worked fine until my friend dropped it in water.
5th: i went home between Summer and Fall terms and found this phone in a desk that was used back when i was in middle school. there was a reason no one was using it anymore...but i did so i wouldn't have to buy a new one. unfortunately this only lasted a few months since i dropped it so many times that over thanksgiving break it literally broke into 2 pieces. (don't remember...i'll remind you)
6th: i got that one in Oregon and thought it worked great until 1 week later and it starts shutting off for no reason. i was soooo ticked. my social life and friends decreased substantially when that occurred. which i suppose isn't saying alot since my social life was at a plateau at that point.
7th: not pictured--i got this one from my sister Ondalynn over Christmas break who had used it for a few years--but still in excellent condition, besides the water damage. you know....no big deal. one day the audio just stopped working so people would call me, and i would just say to them, "i know you can hear me, but i can't hear you, so if you need to talk to me, send me a text. thanks, bye." people made fun of me for weeks. the only other solution was to put the person on speakerphone--which was rather weird when i would walk around the grocery store or wait at the bus stop---EVERYONE heard my phone calls.
8th: bought it off craigslist and so far so good. Knock on wood! :)
