Most girls at my age would be worried about paying for the latest pair of Gucci heels, Prada bag, Armani shoes; they’d also be making over their look once or twice a month and sometimes a week all of this in hopes of catching a guy here or there. But not I, nope, no sir! I am the closeted (or so I lie to myself) gadget-a-holic! I am a twenty-something girl who is absolutely and utterly obsessed with the latest gadgets! And if you like fruits, as I love them, then you’d know which fruit I’m quite partial too.
Ever since I was a young cub (woah, I’m not a bear, let’s just scratch that), so ever since I was a young child I had a certain infatuation with all things that speak geek. I am not a certified geek-a-holic but I sure loves me some nerd speak and a lot of technology!
My obsession reached it’s peak a few years ago, a point of no return. I require a fortune just to feed off this obsession and allow myself to live the geeky life. Family members would ask me to go shopping with them and instead of losing myself in department stores filled with the latest clothes and shoes I find myself yearning to enter an electronics store in hopes of getting lost in between the endless rows of mobile phones, music players, TVs, laptops, desktops, and everything that is wonderful! Don’t get me wrong I love to shop for clothes and shoes and all the basic necessities, but that’s exactly what they are: basic necessities. But my UMHs (Ultimate Must-haves)? That term would be applied to the latest phone that is being released which has x-y-z features or the revamped tablet or computer.
I thought one of the best ways to make new friends as I am constantly being told to do so, is to give you this glimpse into my life and show you what a typical day would require from me. But before I can do any of that I have to introduce myself, hmmm on second thought I would rather prefer to remain nameless, to give you that sense of mystery and allow you to imagine yourself in my shoes for once (trust me they’re not Gucci heels!)
But remaining nameless will sort of be hard therefore I think I would like to be called “Gadget Girl”, my friends call me “GG” and since we are going to know more about each other I believe it’s safe to assume you could all call me that. So fasten your seat belts and be prepared to enjoy the roller coaster ride of your life, I am about to give you the inside scoop of my life and I bet you will surely fall in love with it.
