So, I'm 12 years old (13 in September), and I still don't have anything for myself. I don't have my own room (argh, sharing a room with a 10 year old is....), iPad (sharing an iPad with a 10 and 8 year old....[no privacy], and no phone. My dad said I could get a phone in...get this...HIGH SCHOOL. That was just the intro....
So, I was fine with all of this until yesterday, when my BFF got a phone for her birthday, and kept pulling it out and being like "EEEEEEEK LOOK LOOK!" ik ik, it sounds silly, but it was hard to watch her and my two ther friends pulling out phones and stuff. My friends mom kept being like, "____, search it up on YOUR PHONE." and "Call____on your phone" it was a bit annoying, because I was just sitting there, watching my BFF (who said she wasn't getting one till 7th grade or later) whip out her phone at any time, or in the art studio we went to, just pulling out her phone to just...do....who knows what.
Sorry if it sounds silly or babyish, but I don't have a private way to contact my friends. (And I moved from tex. to MD) its annoying.
If you guys have phones, how did you convince your mom/dad/both to get them for you?
