Social icons

An existential blogger's crisis.

Nottingham, Nottingham, UK 26/01/2016
I'm in the midst of a blogger's existential crisis: I have broken my iPhone.

Impromptu posts hastily scrambled on the bus have been lost, potential Instagram pics have been left lying distinctly un-valenciaafied and I no longer have access to my beloved VSCO cam. HOW ON EARTH WILL I GO ON?

My thirty quid temporary phone is proving to be thirty quid's worth of TORTURE. The keyboard is so slow I can't manage to string a sentence together without seeming totally pissed (which is very embarrassing to clarify at 10 am) and the camera quality is so bad it's practically unusable. Like, I couldn't even Instagram my chai tea latte today, what is the world coming to? Srsly.

  1. I can't aimlessly scroll twitter so I keep missing all the chats. Now none of #TheGirlGang members will know I exist. I'm losing potential besties people!!!
  2. My morning routine of checking every social media outlet three times over is ruined. What am I supposed to do now? Get out of bed and actually socialise? No, thank you.
  3. My temporary phone doesn't even have a front camera. It's like living in the stone age or something. My Snapchat game is weak af, right now. 
  4. And let's have a moment of silence for the loss of some potential selfie BANGERZ.
  5. And even if it did have a front camera, the quality is so terrible that I can't Instagram anything. Now people will think I'm a social recluse, which is true but, my Instagram tells glorious lies and I'd like to keep it that way.

  1. It must be like torture! Without flicking through Instagram and at least facebook on a Morning, I'm not even sure I'd get out of bed! When do you get your Iphone back?!

    1. Luckily, I'm back on the iPhone hype now!!

  2. HAHAHA! Sorry to laugh (I know the pain of breaking technology and feeling like all is lost in the world) but this post was so damn funny and relatable! Your posts never fail to interest and entertain me, you writing is fab! I hope you get your phone fixed soon hahah! Xxx
