Have you seen my baby?

Friday, September 21st,  2012. A day that 25 % of smart phone users everywhere will remember forever. The day the iPhone 5 came out.

I switched to the iPhone back in April, a switch I had been wanting to make for quite some time, but couldn't because of my contract with T-Mobile. T-Mobile is the one major cell phone carrier that doesn't offer the iPhone.

When I made the switch I decided to use my sisters old iPhone 3GS because I wanted to wait for the iPhone 5. Everyone said it was coming in September and I'm a pretty patient person, so I figured I could handle it.

Then, on September 14th it was available for pre-order, but I didn't think I could afford it, so I decided I was going to wait another month.

Three days later I decided it was too important and that I had to have it the day it came out. I'm sure 25% of you can understand. So I robbed a bank (don't worry, I only made them give me 200 dollars) and made a plan to wait in line outside of the Apple Store the night before.

On Thursday September 20th, I went to bed at 10pm and set my alarm for 1:30 am. I figured if I got there at 2am, that would be early enough to get a pretty good spot in line.

I won't bore you with the details about how much fun it was to wait in line, or how cold it got even though I was wearing my winter coat . . . I'll just let you know that after only 7 hours of waiting, I got it, and it was worth every minute.

Fact: I took a picture of my iPhone 5, using my iPad 2 and posted it using my MacBook Pro. Aaaaaand, I managed to squeeze in an adorable picture of my nephew at the same time.

I commented on this yesterday! My comment got sucked into the ether, I guess.

He is so cute.
