A bit of chaos amidst structure

On an iPhone you can enable something that looks like a transparent, grayish, circular thing that you can move wherever you want.

For all the non iPhone users that gray thing is called AssisstiveTouch. What it is, is basically a short-cut to many things from locking your phone to controlling the volume.

Anyways today at work my coworker asked “do you even use that?” And to answer in short, no. I don’t.
So why do I have it?
I guess it’s a strange reason but as the title says its piece of chaos amidst perfection.
All the apps align perfectly, I can’t choose where I want to put it. I mean sure I can change their order but it’s all grid locked. So this one little gray square is something I can choose where I wanna put it. It won’t snap back into some imaginary line. It’s away from the stream of normal. It’s disordered and divergent.
I am far from perfect and I want things to depict me for who I am. For not being part of the “normal and followed” path.
To differentiate myself from the masses.

      1. That AssistiveTouch thing is weird. There’s no lock button or volume buttons on the actual phone anymore? If not.. I’m afraid I have to stick with android. D:
