One word I have to describe this assignment: Difficult. As mentioned in class, I recently deleted my beloved Instagram account, which made staying off my Internet on my phone a lot easier. Also, my friends were in town so the people I would have been texting, were with me. I noticed that the number one reason for being on my phone was taking pictures. Without our phones we would still have big digital cameras taking up space in our purses.
I lasted Friday night but caved Saturday around 5ish. I found it easier if I put my phone on Airplane mode to not receive any notifications from social media or texts. Overall I think we spend too much time on our phones, time that could be spent with more face-to-face interactions. I would stop cold turkey if everyone did as well, but I wouldn’t be able to join the movement if knew that no one would follow.
