1. Mark is also going to school this semester. So he had to order his books online from the campus bookstore. I had my first, 'feel old' moment when I realized that when I started working on my bachelors degrees, you couldn't do that... because there weren't any online campus bookstores. In fact, the year I started college is the same year that Amazon.com was launched.
2. All of the class registration happens on-line. Even when you go in to the wonderful secretary's office-- she's accessing online as well. I spent a good portion of my first day using my cellphone to access the school website and watch for an opening in a class that I needed. As soon as it did-- Jane signed me up.
3. I have some very large breaks between classes. I've spent most of it reading an actual book or visiting with friends, but I've also spent a good portion of that time on my phone: reading several fairy tales, checking facebook, listening to pandora, and playing games. (I'm slowly progressing along in Angry Birds, Rio.)
4. I have used my phone for an awful lot of 'emergency' email in the last 3 days-- from everything from finding out what I need to enter the BFA program to when I need to take a University required math test.
5. While waiting for my first class of the day, I found myself in a very neat hall. And used my cellphone to take pictures of what I got to see.
|the end of the English hall faces the theatre shop (:|
|It's an enormous crossword puzzle!!!|
|If you looked inside for a particular number, it had the 'clue' listed.|
|My absolute favorite part, though, was that it is slowly being filled out, by different people (:|
7. I've used the notebook feature of my phone to keep track of grocery lists, to do lists, and keep a running track of the course I need to graduate.
8. I've used the calendar, timer and alarm clock feature for making sure I don't miss any appointments, don't spend too much time on the computer and get up and going when I need to.
All in all, if I didn't already know it, the last three days would have convinced me that my Droid is one of the absolute smartest and most versatile presents that Mark has ever gotten me!
