Prior to this year I never had to worry about missing a meeting, doctor’s appointment, or important family birthday. Mom would take care of it all for. But time flies and now that I am a student at the University of Michigan, all of these are harder to remember but just as important. No longer can I stare at the large family calendar in the kitchen to know what each day holds, and no longer can I rely on my mother to give me friendly reminders of what I need to do each day to avoid missing important events.
College life is so hectic, and with the rigorous course work and large social scene, my mind can be very forgetful. To help combat this, I rely on 24me. Between the reminders and checklists, 24me has become my actual savior, and the most evident example of this occurred just the other day when I almost forgot about my mother’s birthday.
Luckily, I was reminded of mom’s birthday two days in advance because of 24me, and upon receiving my reminder, I bought her a gift from the “send a gift” option that is within the app itself. Today, I called my mom to wish her a happy birthday, but before I could even wish her a happy birthday she was raving about the gorgeous flowers I had sent to her.
24me saved me from my mother’s rage, and made it so much easier for me to be involved in celebrating my mother’s birthday despite being far away from home.
