I hate to be so negative about this even though I write about my depression and stuff fairly often, but it really is going to suck. No one in my family cares about Christmas; I’m the only one who still does, who still wants to decorate and celebrate and everything. And I honestly don’t think it’s a nostalgia thing because I don’t expect nor can I imagine a Christmas today being anything like it was when I was a kid. I just want them to at least care a little bit. But for the past several years, pretty much every holiday has just been another regular day. Honestly I’m not sure why I even want to celebrate with these people because I’ve been clashing with them really badly recently (or vice versa, really) but it just upsets me that they don’t care. Actually, I guess it’s just that I want someone to share the holidays with and I don’t have that. I wish I could go and celebrate it with my friends. I’m forever seeing photos and videos of everyone I know on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr having fun at parties with other friends and I’ve never experienced that. I truly don’t want any actual material items for Christmas. I just want to be with people who care about me. And I’d much rather be able to give something to somebody than get something from someone. I’ve never been able to do that. If I could have that and just be around good friends for Christmas I’d be so much happier. But sadly, I can’t, and my alternative is to be around a miserable, grumpy family who wants nothing to do with holidays because they’re tired and annoyed. I just wish for once I could be happy, especially around this time of year where it almost feels like an obligation, but I can’t do it alone. I need serious help.
if you have the assistive touch thing on you can press ‘device’ then hold down ‘lock screen’, the same way you would hold down the real lock button, to turn it off. i have the same problem with my phone so that’s how i do it
nevermind i just noticed somebody else already said that lol
Haha it’s okay! I thought another one of my friends said he had the same problem and went to the Apple Store and they just took it in the back and fixed it within minutes, but maybe it was a different button or something. The first guy I talked to made it seem like it was no big deal, but then some girl was helping me and she immediately looked at it and went, “Oh yeah, we’d have to replace the whole phone.” I was hoping there was just like a little spring in there or something that snapped but I guess not. They can’t make anything easy. Knowing this is better than nothing though. It’s not like I’m turning it on and off all the time either. It’s just kind of annoying and I’m a little OCD about not having electronics in perfect condition, heh.
