“Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are” is an old proverb. It should be reworded today as show me your gadgets and I will show you who you are. At least it is true in my case. But as someone, who doesn’t like carrying many gadgets, I pretty much use mobile and laptop for most of my needs.
Calm and Confident
I change the wallpaper of my mobile pretty regularly. But it will always be a photograph of mine. :) In fact, after my engagement my hubby, in one of those romantic moods, commented that I should change the wallpaper to his photograph. I gave such a matter-of-fact reply that I like looking at my face and will not change it. (I know stupid me :)) And only when I saw a slight disappointment in his face did I realize that it was not the correct reply in that situation.
And after my baby was born, my mom suggested that I keep one of baby’s photos as wallpaper. This time I was mature and did not reply. (Clever me :)) I thought may be I should and changed it to the baby’s photo. But somehow I did not feel comfortable and changed it to my own photograph.
And the same goes for my laptop too. The only difference being the photograph is in a black or shiny blue or maroon or orange background. (I just have a liking to some colors at different times. There is no specific reason.)
I am a confident person. I like the way I look in some photos. And let me clarify I do not look beautiful in those. I look confident, but there is also a sense of contentment and peace in my eyes. And every time I look at those photographs, I feel I am in control of my life. (You can call me self-obsessed :) )
Plan and Prepare
Also, I note down the pending activities for each day in my mobile calendar. Today’s entries read:
• Tax return form
• 2 1 coin
Similarly, there will be no unnecessary or unused files or folders in my laptop. The desktop contains only the basic icons. There will be shortcuts to the often-used folders and files in the task bar.
I am an organized person. Every time I remember something to do, I immediately make a note in my mobile. It helps me in remembering things and because I look at it everyday, I tend to complete it sooner. There is always a plan in whatever I do. Sometimes, I think it adds to tension. But that’s the way I am.
Sing a Song
You can always see a minimized music player, mostly playing melodies.
Songs are my primary source of relaxation. There are times when Ilayaraja’s music acts as the peace maker after a fight at home. :)
In summary my gadgets always portray a confident person in a bright background planning a lot of things listening to music.
