iPhone Calendars Can Be Tricky

So I’ve only had my iPhone for a little bit over a year. Yeah, I’m not an early adopter. In fact, I’m a pretty late adopter. But nevertheless, I “joined the dark side.” As somewhat of a newbie, I never really tried to figure out how to use every last feature. Also, I’m a PC and I don’t use Outlook.

How is this a problem? Well, I got this recurring calendar invite for work in an email so I clicked on the little attachment that conveniently adds it to the phone’s calendar. The bad thing? The meeting invite was sent out by someone who is on Central time, and for whatever reason, when I clicked on the icon, it added it in Central time! The darn phone wasn’t clever enough to change it to Pacific time. That was my first problem.

My second problem was that I couldn’t make any adjustments to it. Sheesh, maybe I’m just dumb.

Eventually the recurring meeting was canceled, so when I tried to delete the meeting off my phone, I couldn’t! Aiyah, what’s a girl to do? I figured that if I had some sort of calendar program, I could sync things up and delete the meeting.

Well, eventually I decided to start using iCloud’s calendar feature through the website, and FINALLY I got rid of that stinkin invite. Yeah yeah, I’m sure all you people out there must think I’m some kind of idiot. But really, I was just without calendar software and too lazy to start using iCloud until recently.

I wonder if I’m turning in to one of those folks who doesn’t know how to learn about technology. Eek, I better brush up on gadgets and things.

I Have Neglected My Blog

Dear Scarf Girl Blog,

I’m so sorry that I’ve been such a lazy bum that I’ve neglected you. Life seems to fly by really quickly and I should definitely be a bit more diligent about keeping track of the interesting (or not so interesting) things that happen in my life. Have faith! I will write more things in the future.

P.S. I have since added a new scarf to my collection.
