I even gave up my cell phone when I stopped working, figuring I'm sitting here everyday with a home phone and Internet why do I need another 100$ bill a month for...And even thinking hey maybe I will pick up that actual home phone and reconnect with some people..Nope!
I have been trying to figure out why it has become so much more of a convenience for us to text, I.M and email rather then pick up the phone and have a personal connection.
From my stand point obviously the introduction of cell phones, texting and all the other technology out there has given us an easier way. But for me I think it's also more at my own pace. I don't have to worry about a kid yelling in the background, the dog needing to go out, etc etc
I can shoot someone a message or respond an hour later with no real reason needed, I can sit down at night when everyone is in bed and write out an email.
I guess when I really thought about it (although still not motivated to pick up the phone).. I feel sad about the loss of personal connections, and sad that my kids may never sit up at night having a conversation with the best friend until the early morning. Instead they will sit there typing out messages, and that personal connection is getting more lost the more advanced technology becomes.
So do you still enjoy talking on the phone? Or would you rather communicate via other means?
