No cell phone – Day 3
I’m on day 3 without the use of a cell phone outside of my apartment. In essence I have turned my cell phone into a LAN line. Nothing adverse has come from it. If anything it is a relief not to have. One less thing emitting radiation to have tied to me at all times. My time has become my own. I’m glad that I can’t be reached at any given time.
Instead of checking the phone to see who sent a message every 5 minutes and feeling like I have to respond immediately…….I take a look at my phone when I get home and if I need to respond, I do.
I’m telling you, it is a better way to live. I’m happier not carrying it around.
Last night I got done with the gym and felt like going to bed. I was exhausted, but had made plans to go see a show on the Lower East Side. If I had the cell phone I easily could have cancelled. It would have been easy to do so. Instead I ended up going to the show and had a great time. If I had the phone with me, 90% I would not have gone last night.
I got home to a great text message (it is almost like it was 15 years ago when you would get home and check an answering machine) it read:
“Go to Australia already! 3 months there will give you 53 years worth of stories/memories”
Now that will make me think. I have never read anything more true…..
