So, I figure I'm exactly where I expected to be, deserve to be in this someone silly mid-life migration to Android... Frustratedly-disappointed?
Key learning: Unlike mama-Apple, this Android fella allows me to create any personality I'd like for this big-assed phone of mine. Unfortunately with this opportunity comes a level of personal responsibility (and a whole lot of tiresome, learning) I'm not quite used to.
Oh, sure mama-Apple did go and let me re-arrange and organize (clean my room)... but at the end of the day, she'd always be there to remind me... where my toys go, and where & when my homework is to done.
Playing this analogy a few notes along the staff... I feel like a drunken stupid college kid, laying all hung-over like in the middle of my bombed out dorm room. Oh sure, I can reach over and under that big smelly pile of dirty socks & underwear to find the tools I really need; but this place is a stinky, dirty... smelly and still very ugly, mess. AND my ass-hatted dorm-mate's no help and basically gone AWOL.
Realizing I'd become far too accustomed to Apple-mama's tight-as-nails organizational beauty AND with the thrill & knowledge that I can "build my own" operating environment, I've gone in search of the best of the best. I've re-arranged this and that app across, what are these now, home page(s) ...employed, resized, downloaded and re-jigged a big useless pile of what-are-these-widgets all in a seemingly endlessly stupid attempt to do things I never used to do, OR needed to do when I was still at home with mama-Apple...
I've GO launched one big mess and SPB Shell(ed) that mess into another bigger, 3D no less, other mess... I've got this-app and that-widgety-thingy strewn here, there and underwear.
I guess I could cry out "enough" and pursue a sense of "good old days" normality... (see: 15 ways to make your Android look like an iPhone)...
...but, where's that going to get me?
I guess I'll start going to class, stop being homesick, say good bye to my Android-Frosh-Week buddies and hit the books. OH, if anyone has their notes from last week classes, OR has this terms "cheat sheets"... I'm in the market! :-)
