iphone update

Dear AT&T,
Why do your plethora of plans have to be so complicated? I have the family plan. Just my teenager and me. He has unlimited texting, I have nothing right now because I don't know how to use my phone for anything besides dialing and answering. So, to lure me into upgrading my ghetto, but perfectly usable phone, you enticed me with the iphone hoopla and not only expect me to pay the cheaper $199 price, but you don't have them in stock, so I have to order it, wait my one month AND decide on a plan, because an iphone is a smart phone, so the options are different. If we go with a family plan, then it doesn't make sense for me to have an iphone unless we all have iphones. However, with the unlimited stuff plan, it doesn't come with texting, so you have unlimited except for texting. Teenagers are all about texting. My other option is to get the family plan for more than my contract price, AND pay an extra $30 per month for the iphone. Your rep. tells me to feel free to change characters, but where am I supposed to go? Dead zones are not the problem. It's all these darn options!

Cat,

I was already on AT&T when iPhone 1 came out. I waited a week and bought a brand new, in the box iPhone off Craigslist.org. Local seller, met and inspected sealed box. Paid cash.

Took phone home, pulled sim chip from existing AT&T phone, jammed it into iPhone. Voila! Added $20/month rider for me. Rest of 'ohana on Family Plan, $9 a month per phone extra.

Bought kiddo text rider with 200 TXT/mo for $5 more. Pau.

But I've seen 4gb iPhones for $175 lately. Cheap. I'm looking for used one to give to kiddo, add $20 rider, he's in business.

Get kids to use FREE AIM chat app for iPhone 2.0. Or can use GoogleTalk to chat live.

An open letter to my Boy 3, Tom Kalamapono

These young men are Pono'I and Pono B. My son is on the left. He is a freshman at Reed University in Oregon and I just saw a post on Instagram that he is feeling homesick. As a mother of a Native Hawaiian boy, this is alarming to me. The statistics on our Native Hawaiian students who get into universities or community colleges is pretty good. We can get them in. But the percentage of Native Hawaiian students who drop out after their freshman year is atrocious. We have about a 60% drop out rate after their freshman year. So this is just my letter to him.
Dear Pono,
I just got a newsletter in my inbox from Reed and I was drawn to the article written by Mylion Trulove, your Dean of Admission. He is the one that called and invited you and talked us through the process. 
This is what I found out. There were 5,705 applicants (including you) who applied. Maybe for some this was not their first choice, but I know that Reed was your first choice. They accepted 357 of you. I think Milyon p…

Cute site for Grammar Posters: Oatmeal.com

I love the resources on the Internet and while trying to edit  a document for work, I came across this hilarious grammar site that can help students and make them laugh too.
I was looking up semicolon rules and they have it in kid friendly, clear text, hilarious sample sentences and cartoons (my personal fave).

They also offer the cute posters for a reasonable amount, so if you want something to put on your walls for a chuckle, check them out.
