gadgets love and compulsive buying
December 25, 2012 12:27pm CST
I love gadgets, I don't know why. Maybe it's because of the thrill I feel whenever I unbox something I bought. When I see a gadget I want, I usually go to YouTube and watch different unboxing videos and then I start reading reviews and start planning my purchase. I envy those tech bloggers, they get to try out lots of gadgets. Currently I own a first generation White Galaxy Note. Last week, I bought a White Lumia 800 to replace my trusty Nokia black and white phone that served its purpose of calling and texting for 2 years. Then 2 days before Christmas, I realized I could buy a Lumia 920 and just pass my 800 to my mom! I confirmed my order with an online store, but I eventually cancelled it since I realized that the price was too steep. BUT instead of cancelling the order, I switched it to buy myself a White Ipad Mini hahaha. I ended up meeting the seller but cancelling the order since the price of online sellers were higher than the official price of the gadget here in our country. I love gadgets. I like the idea of owning one Android, iOS and WP product. But damn, this compulsion has to stop. I hope it stops once I've finished buying what I want to buy. For now I hope the list ends with the Ipad Mini and a White Olympus E-PM2 :D

actually, looking for new hobbies worsened my love for gadgets haha. A few months after purchasing my tablet, I suddenly spied on headphones on a blog site. My curiosity got the best of me, and I ended up wanting to do music as a hobby. Bought a Grado for me, and planned to buy a Cowon. I shifted my hobby to photography, now I want to buy a Camera :((

Yup, its a good thing but I think I need to know when to stop. My love for gadgets started last February, when I bought this cheap Android Tablet (Ainol Elf). I realized then that buying stuff like gadgets is fun..afterwhich the gadget craze started haha. The list keeps on growing...I hope it stops after the camera and the ipad mini :( I need to start saving my hard earned money hehe.
