I’m in my 20s. But I’ve never had an iPhone. I don’t know how to download an app. (Are those free? Or do they cost money?) I obviously don’t have a data plan. I already think music has gone downhill drastically, so I can’t even listen to the radio. I skyped once four years ago and the quality was ridiculously shoddy so I haven’t tried it again since. I know I’m going to have to catch up on these things eventually. If I want to function in the world when I’m an old lady I’ll need to keep up on things. But I really just don’t want to. I’m perfectly happy with how we all functioned with technology circa 2005. I’m a 57-year-old stuck in a 20s body.
So it was a big achievement when I sold my first item on Amazon last week. I listed it…maybe two weeks ago. When you sign up you have to give them your bank account or debit card number. I don’t like doing that, but I know it’s a website I can trust, so I did. It was pretty easy to list my item, which was a Wilton 3D cake pan. I just looked to see if someone was already selling it, which they were, and listed mine a few dollars cheaper. Someone bought it, I got an email, and I shipped it. I think I’ll get paid by Amazon either next week or the week after. (The first time they pay you is 21 days after you sign up, but they only pay you for items that were shipped between days 14 and 21, so you have to wait two weeks until you get your money.)
