Yesterday was the passing of an amazing man, Steve Jobs. I was at the gym when I found out and before you know it, his face was plastered all over the mounted televisions in the women’s gym. I looked around wondering why nobody else seemed affected by this. Me? I was sitting on the floor with goosebumps going up and down my arms trying to keep myself from breaking down. I legitimately wanted to get up and tell people what just happened as if they didn’t read it already from the subtitles on the television. I walked out of the gym and sat in my car. Texting Aaron about how upset I was and continuously refreshed my twitter feed to see what everyone else had to say. I may or may not have even unfollowed a girl for posting about all of her favorite style bloggers and not about Steve Jobs. Ya, that. I couldn’t believe I was so upset about someone I have never met. But this amazing man had such a massive affect on my life. He’s responsible for my nerdiness, my hobby + future career and Aarons career.
So thank you, Steve. Your innovation and genius ability to see outside of the box will forever be remembered, you’ve had such a profound impact on all of our lives.
That image is amazing.
The world lost an innovator and a genius. Rest in peace.
I was at church. My boyfriend and I suddenly started receiving all of these tweets saying that he’d passed. Our worship leader (a mega Apple fanboy) was very distraught… it was all that everyone at church could talk about.
I have a feeling this is going to be a “where were you when…” moment.
I was like you, put out by others tweeting about things other than him yesterday. It was like I thought they were being insensitive for doing so, but I couldn’t help it. I was more upset by the news of his death than I ever thought I would be. 🙁
I found out when my brother texted me and I felt like my heart completely stopped.
My family had a really trying day Wednesday (my mom was in the ER all day – she’s fine now but it was the scariest day of my life..) so I really just did not want to be on twitter, around people, that day at all. But I would have felt the same way as you if I had been. I can’t believe how insensitive people can be 🙁 I actually cried reading one of his obituaries. He was like our Thomas Edison or Ben Franklin.. the greatest mind of our time. 🙁
