Bout of Books 12 – My illicit TBR

BoB12-200x200I wrote a few days ago that I was going to sign up for my second Bout of Books read-a-thon. I am not sure what the experience of completing a read-a-thon minus actual books will be like, but I wanted to do something that I’d do at home. Hopefully it will be as enjoyable as the last Bout of Books I did!

I know that the lovely Amanda and Kelly have removed the goals linky from the sign-up requirements for Bout of Books 12, but I have decided to do an illicit one anyway! Continue reading “Bout of Books 12 – My illicit TBR”

I am so #Technologically @Challenged

Ok, so yes I have Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and I have this blog. Yes I am 22 and part of the most technologically gifted generation. Yes, I have grown up thinking it is normal and part of life to own laptops, mobile phones, i-pods, tablets, and have wifi wherever I go. But, if you saw me use any of these,  you would realise that I am seriously technologically challenged.

Let’s start with gadgets. I do have a few, a touch/smart phone, a tablet, a laptop, and an i-pod, but I am rubbish using them. I’ve always had an alright phone, never the worst/least advanced on the market, but it never has all the latest features or gizmos. I have only just sold out and got a tablet, and that was because it cost an extra £1 per month on my phone bill. I have a laptop, mainly because I needed one for school and University work. Which is obviously what it has been used for mostly, and not at all marathoning shows and attempting to use social media. As for an i-pod, well I got one of those because I do like music, and they’re meant to be the easiest to use. I’ve had it for 5 years and I can’t work i-tunes, so I’ve only ever put 2 sets of music on it. It’s a good job I put a lot of songs on at once, or I would be screwed. (It’s got Disney and rock on there, so I’m sorted. Thankfully, I know myself quite well.) I haven’t really ever dabbled in gaming. At all. I thought that was a step too far. I have only just got Candy Crush. I don’t get the fuss. Continue reading “I am so #Technologically @Challenged”
