Now Taking Applications for Personal Geek Squad

by - May 28, 2010

Yep. That's me. On the wrong side of the internet as usual.

So yesterday I took a walk through my history with technology, and if you remember it was mostly focused on computers and the programs I used from fifth grade up 'til now. That little walk down memory lane helped me realize where my problem with technology lies: the internet.

My history with the internet is not as long as my history with computers. I actually didn't start using the internet extensively until probably the 8th grade. I got my first email address and became a member of, where I actually met my first internet friend - a guy from London (we're friends on Facebook now, although we don't keep in touch very often anymore). I started using MSN Messenger and talked to complete strangers (without fear of being killed in my sleep) in chatrooms. That's how I met one of my best friends (we're friends on facebook and talk/text all the time).

Looking back I realize that time period was back when the internet was relatively simple, or in other words you didn't have many options for changing or controlling the things you were using online. And to be honest, the only things I've ever really wanted to mess with on anything has been the color of the page and/or fonts. But let's face it, doing that now isn't as easy as it once was. Used to you could just click on stuff and things would change to what you wanted them to be. Nowadays nothing is that simple, or even if it is it doesn't ever work that way for me.

I'm serious. If you knew how long it took me to get my new layout to work correctly on here, you'd probably laugh (Christina probably is laughing actually). And that ineptness spills over into pretty much every aspect of the internet.

I need my own personal Geek Squad. They can act as my chauffeur, too!

    Of course, eventually, I'll meet my own match and wind up huddled in a corner singing "Hey Macarena".

    Congrats on the followers, by the way. :) Very nice...
