All quiet on the blogging front

Sorry I’ve been so darned quiet lately. I spent almost all of Memorial Day weekend in San Marcos with the boyfriend, either sleeping, eating, or thinking about sleeping or eating. We did more productive things too, but this was one of the laziest weekends I remember having. Which is ok, but it really did a number on my mood when I had to come back to reality. Reality is also known as living in a different city (even though we’re only 30 minutes away from each other now) and having to go to work at a job that I don’t think I’m really needed at.

Don’t worry, I won’t let this grow into a “feel sorry for me” post.

This weekend I also traded cell phones with my dad. He and my mom had recently gotten new Samsung camera phones, and they liked them for the most part. The only problem: my dad keeps his phone in his pocket, and as a result the phone kept randomly taking pictures (there’s a camera button on the side). My phone was not a camera phone, and it had turned out to be one of the best little cell phones I’ve ever had. To tell the truth I was a little sad to let it go, but hell. I’ve never had a camera phone. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

So I went from this phone to this phone.

So far the new one’s ok. I like being able to save a picture so that it’ll show up when a particular person calls. But the many buttons on the side are a hassle. I’ve already mysteriously called my cousin while the phone was snug in my purse. And the battery life is CRAP. Which I’ve heard about camera phones. But come on! It can’t go a day without losing a battery bar.

Other than that, I’ll enjoy it. I’m actually due for a new phone with my plan, so maybe I’ll try this out for a while and then find something else that I’ll really like.

Anyone else have a camera phone? Got any advice for saving battery life? I don’t have the option of turning this baby off, because it is my only means of communication. Any phone recommendations for AT&T customers?
