December 26th, 2014 Turning Your Old Phone into Cash

The fact of the matter is that every technology company is in a race with their competition to put out new releases faster and faster. For example, if the iPhone comes out with some new technology that becomes popular, then Samsung must counter this with a new version of their Galaxy phone. In the past the race was not so extreme because phones were much more simple and the difference between them was hard to spot, but the combination of new features and new styles have changed that drastically. If you sell old mobile phones instead of wasting them, then maybe you too can keep up with the newest devices in order to show off for your friends.

Whether you really agree or are just going along with it, cell phones have basically become a part of a person’s fashion and style. Sure it is obviously not an article of clothing, but people now carry their phones almost everywhere they go. If you take your phone out in a public place and people see it is old technology, chances are they will notice and take note just like they would with tacky or worn out clothing.

It is obviously pretty wasteful to upgrade regularly without a plan for your old phone though, since it is not like you can just use both at the same time or anything like that. Most often people are also too lazy to figure out how to recycle the old devices, so they end up sitting in a drawer or box somewhere and collect dust or get in the way. This is basically the definition of useless, which is sad considering how much most of these devices cost at one time. However, now you can prevent this from happening and instead get some cash instead.

December 5th, 2014 The Expectation of Being You

The burning question that exists for nearly every single person is, ‘What should I do with my life?’. I think each and every single one of us has gone through a phase where we simply have no idea what we want to do. When we place so much expectation on one another, as a culture and society, with our higher education often defining what we will do in the future, it can be a stressful experience that many of us never grow from. There was a time I wanted DJ gear so I could learn to DJ. There was also a time when I seriously considered Marine Biology, too.

In fact, I can think back now and recall all the fields and subjects which held my interest yet in the end I settled on something as simple as English and Literature instead. Even now I really have no idea as to what I want ‘to do’ with my life – I feel like I only exist. I don’t have any goals or plans or a future that is laid out for me like most of my friends seem to do. (more…)
