When I first started the assignment I knew it would be difficult but I didn't realize how difficult it would be until it was nighttime and I was extremely bored. My phone was buzzing and I couldn't answer it. My roommates were gone and I didn't know where they were. I started watching movies for the night and luckily my roommates came back home and my neighbors visited so the night got much better. On Saturday it was a different story. I could not, under any circumstance, not use my cell phone on Saturday. I had friends visiting from Washington, D.C and they would have been so lost if I couldn't communicate with them. I don't know anyone that uses a land line anymore so that wasn't even an option. This experience helped me realize how dependent I am on technology but it is definitely necessary for most situations.
