Cellphone back, life back

Is a cellphone that important for a teenager? Do we really need the newest cellphones?
I lost my cellphone for a week, because I had to send it away to repair it, but fortunately my brother had a cellphone that I could use. Immediately I downloaded whatsapp, so I could follow everything in my friends life. If I hadn't a cellphone that quickly, I would go crazy. I would feel like I miss everything in the social world, I check twitter, facebook and whatsapp all the time. Living without seems impossible. Okay, maybe I'm overreacting, impossible is a big word, but living without a cellphone would make me feel like I'm isolated from the world. 

Do we really need to have contact with everybody, to check twitter all the time? No, I think it's not necessary, and of course you can have a social life without all the social network stuff, but being able to see what's happening in everybody's life is very interesting and addictive. I want to know what's going on in the world, and my way of finding out is checking twitter and facebook. 

If you know what's going on, you feel so, relieved... I'm always scared I miss something very exciting or interesting or even important. But maybe, if I would delete my twitter and facebook account, I can live without the feeling of missing things. Okay, I think it takes time, but I started with no contact to complete contact, so I can go back to the beginning. 

The important question is: do I want to go back? To the time I didn't have a smartphone? The answer is simple and predictable: no. Of course I don't want to, it's not that social network has a bad influence on me, it actually helps in my life: if I have a question or something, or I want to contact my friends, this is much easier than texting or calling.

I have my smartphone for only three months, but I'm already totally settled down in the social network world. It's like I never lived without it, but I like the feeling of exactly knowing what's going on in the world. It has become a part of my life, and I'm happy with this change. I admit, sometimes I'm a little bit addicted to my cellphone, but the most of the time I can resist the urge.

Stay positive

Sometimes life is hard, so be it. I know how it feels, maybe in another way than you do, but I think everybody has their own troubles. I'm a very positive person and I'm trying to make the best out of everything I do. There are many things I hate about life, but if you only think of that you're going to make it even worse. If you stay positive by everything you do, you'll enjoy everything more. Live for the moment, and don't think about stupid things in the future, because it makes no sense. If you think about it, you'll only worry about it, and the situation is not going to become better or something. The only thing you achieve is ruining the moment you think about that little thing in the future. That thing is in the future, so let it stay there! But if the moment is there, and you feel like everything is against you and you think life can't be worse, try to think: it can be worse. And yes, sometimes you think it can't, but it always can. This will help you, it helps me in any case, to come through the hard stuff in life.

My point is: stay positive, how worse the situation is, and don't forget to keep smiling! It sounds very cheesy,  but it actually works! Life is much easier for me, because I see everything on the bright side. Of course you can't have always a good day, and I haven't either, but I'm trying to make every day a good day, and for the most days it really helps.

This means I'm not always a very happy and lucky person, because, like I said, everybody has their own troubles and a day to forget, but I try to have less this sort of days.

A new, fresh start

I don't want to change my blog completely, but from now on I'll do it differently.
I don't know what the exact changes are going to be, but one of them is that I'm going to try to write in English, so more people can actually read it and it's a good way to improve my English skills.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog!
