The iClip

February 25, 2011

I want an iPhone 4 so bad. I’ve been looking it up since I became aware of its existence in the market but was concerned about how I’m going to use my 3g sim card again for my laptop if it means I need to cut it for the phone. Also, it is just so damn expensive. Of course I could buy one. That’s if I don’t spend for anything else for one whole month. I dropped the dream immediately. There are more important things and other than a lifestyle upgrade, I work to buy food. I can afford an iPhone but I can’t afford to be hungry.

While I was clicking around youtube one last time before I give up my iPhone fantasies, I came across a video clip of how to change the freaking sim card. I was amazed at how incredibly time consuming the process is and wished that I’d seen this clip sooner. I could’ve been saved from all those excruciatingly hard days of wanting to have it so much at the expense of the possibility of being sent home for slapping a bitch who accidentally drops her precious iPhone while anxiously waiting for the dentist. I mean seriously, who drops an iPhone by accident? You have to be in an actual accident to loosen your grip on it. Oh well, that’s just me.

A few seconds into the video, the man who was trying to put the sim in the phone took out what seems to be Apple’s greatest invention yet: the iClip. Yes, the thin piece of metal intended as a paper clip was bent to serve a new purpose: to fit that teeny tiny hole at the side of the phone to open the sim vault. I have been using paper clips for as long as I can remember and have the utmost respect for its inventor Johan Vaaler but whoever came up with the iClip is a genius. I will think twice now before throwing one. You never know what awesome idea my exhausted, polluted and defunct brain could come up with that will change the way we look at paper clips forever and pave the way for some sort of paper clip revolution.

I rolled my eyes and gave out a faint laugh. I’m being ridiculous again. I only have a flair for words and absolutely zero interest in inventing anything. Phones and clips-aside, I am reminded again of my passion for writing. What am I made for? What will make me realize my worth? Yes I am a nurse, a paper clip at that but is this all I can be? Of course not. I can write. I can come up with a page about anything. I can be something else that other people don’t expect me to be because it’s not what I went to college for. I can be an iClip. I WANT to be an iClip. I just need to bend a little to the other side so I can maximize my God-given talents and be the other someone I want and could be.
