In order to increase actual usage of my Freerunner, I’m actually looking to get my hands on a SIM card. I’m on a family plan with Verizon, and the phones we’re using aren’t equipped with SIM cards at all. I toyed with the idea of switching carriers but can’t really justify having the whole family go through the transition just for my experimental pursuits which are sketchy at best at this point. Though my dad brings up a good point about the hardware on the phone being perfectly usable without access to calls, it seems like I am not really utilizing what I have at this point because I can’t treat it as it essentially is: a phone.
This week I will hunt for some info about activating a SIM card somewhere somehow. I think there’s a cell phone place on my way to class from the bus stop I get off at during the week.
A friend of mine mentioned some time ago that the phrase “I wish I knew more about…” could be finished in so many ways, and I totally agree with that. Which is why I will adhere to a reading schedule starting this week. My intent was to absorb stuff like a sponge but so far it hasn’t been happening as I envisioned at the end of winter vacation a few weeks back. So I will keep a notebook close and the bookmarks in place.
This week I’ll aim for consistency, hope to get more than 50% on the to do list I made up on joesgoals.com.
Yes, the tutorial for Octave I promised last week has still not begun to write itself. I will get a move on it.
