Hey guys. My birthday is soon and my parents are asking me what I want for my birthday. Usually, I am allowed to pick one thing, but this year, they are trying to make a deal with me, it seems.
I can either get a blackberry, money, OR do summer programs. For example; go to wildwood for a soccer tournament, take courses at a local community college, summer camps, guitar lessons, etc. (Only a few of course, haha)
I'm not sure if I should go for the black berry and money, or the more academic/summer filling activities.
Thoughts? All are welcome!

    I'd go for the summer programs. As ridiculously cliche as it sounds, the experience there will be probably be worth a lot more than a Blackberry (assuming it's a program that you actually want to go to!). I have a Blackberry and it's really overrated; Brickbreaker is the only thing I use it for that another phone can't do. Money is boring.

    Go for the summer program thing. You don't need a Blackberry.

    Summer programs. You won't regret it.
    (Plus, you're basically getting a bigger gift that way)

    That's what I was thinking. I just hope that the programs are worth it!
