My Name is Nicole, and I’m a BlackBerry AddictBy
I’m going to come clean, I’m addicted to my BlackBerry.
I never thought this would happen to me. I’ve only had it for about 2 months. Before that, I just had a regular old cell phone. But, now, I’m always connected, with the internet at my fingertips. The little red light blinking means I have a new e-mail, and I must… check… it!
Twitpic-ing has become easier, and even more tweets are flying from my fingers when I’m on the run. I am a total believer in social media, and I guess that fuels my BlackBerry addiction even more.
The worst part of my addiction, is leaving my BlackBerry by my bedside. I have to, in case I get called in for work. I need to be able to answer my phone. But, it’s turned into me waking up in the middle of the night, and grabbing out in darkness to check my e-mail, or even check the radar if t-storms are supposed to be on the way.
Throughout the day it’s always by my side. My husband’s even “yelled” at me to put it down while watching TV.
How many of you are doing the same thing… or am I just crazy?
