In the times were living in, it’s extremely difficult to stay present. With every fucking ounce of what’s happening in the entire world at your fingertips, it’s hard for a teenager to put the phone down, let alone a country music superstar (or website blogger) trying to make a dream work. I wish I could go back to the flip phone, delete all my socials and not give a flying fuck about what all these other people are doing, but work’s got to get done. I mean, how else would I have even seen that Brett was doing it if I wasn’t on Instagram… pretty ironic huh?
Anyways, here’s what Brett had to say about starting off 2019 with the old flip phone.
“To start 2019, I am going to go back in time to 2002. That was the year I got my first color flip phone with a lil megapixel camera on it…I felt like a bad ass…I would carry it everywhere I went but never look at it to check the never ending “Breaking News” or constantly compare my life to someone else’s… I wouldn’t sit at the dinner table and be halfway paying attention to my buddies convo’s because I was watching someone’s story about how good, or bad they were at “Flossing” or how quick someone could chug a bottle of vodka and do a triple backflip into a pool…I was there, in the moment, with my friends, with life…Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of amazing things about a smart phone…but I gotta take a moment to experiment and see what it’s like to be here, RIGHT NOW, lost in the music and not in a screen…if ya need me, I’ll be on the T9 text machine…here goes the #FlipPhoneChallenge.
Happy New Year! Love Brett”
Might I recommend the Motorola Razr, best damn flip phone I ever had.
