Yes, my phone is just as important to me as the love of my life (and maybe just a little bit more). There, I said it!
The internet is filled with the ‘challenge’ videos of people trying to make it through the week without their cell phones. The idea of working, living, and practically existing without a smartphone is an alien concept to me. And that is exactly why I decided to do it. Stepping out of your comfort zone, that’s the life, isn’t it?
My verdict after the challenge? You can abduct my boyfriend (don’t kill him), but PLEASE give my phone back to me!
But wait! Before you grab pitchforks and call me a heartless cyborg who favours technology over the possibility of actual physical human contact, allow me to tell you what breaking up feels like when it comes to my phone versus the guy I am dating.
1. What mornings are like...
Without bae: Oh well, no more ‘Good morning, beautiful!’ texts. Better get used to it.
Without my phone: SHIT, I don’t have an alarm! OH GOD, I AM LATE! *runs out of the house almost forgetting pants*
Without phone: I guess my earphones look good on that wall. *cries into a bucket*
Conclusion: Yes, it was nice to take a break from the virtual world. But I enjoy the convenience and the ease that my phone provides every single day of my life and I will not be okay doing it again unless I plan a REALLY long vacation!
