Love it, Dreena. I bought a blackberry last year and am eagerly waiting for my contract to end so I can go back to a regular mobile. I really don't like feeling so utterly compelled to constantly check my e-mail. Or have 24/7 web access where-ever I might be. It's just too much!

LOVE IT!

i am 24 years old, and over the last year, i gave up my cell phone, car, facebook and cable tv. i now bike, go to the library, walk around a lot and still have my same friends that i see a few times a week. iHATE all this "technology" it just divides us.

i remember right after i gave up my cell phone, my car was making funny noises so i pulled into a gas station. i was freaking out. i thought "i can't call anyone! i can't call anyone!" then, i calmed down, walked inside, and TALKED TO A HUMAN BEING WHO WAS RIGHT THERE! imagine! he was very helpful, told me i needed some oil (oops) and got me right back on the road, no phone required.

Thanks everyone.

Aimee, that's been my concern, feeling that urge to be connected when most times it's not necessary. Not to mention the extra service fees - I'll redirect those dollars to good food, ha!

PammyPam, thanks for your support, and for chiming in on t/s as well. I fully expect for people to disagree with me on posts - I respect other viewpoints and I welcome discussion. That was just rude, however. My skin has gotten a *bit* thicker over my years of blogging, thankfully (though, sometimes not thick enough)!

ki, wow, you realize that you are now quite a renegade in your generation, right?! Really, in today's world of non-stop communication and fast paced living, that is really something! Your story at the gas station is funny. I would have reacted the same way I think, and I rarely use my cell phone - but I know it's always there for emergencies and such. I really admire that you relinquished all of these modern conveniences, and I'm wondering if you feel more relaxed for doing so...? Thanks for sharing, that's really interesting.

(oh, and ilikethatone, Andrea.) ;)

Dreena, I support your decision, it's irrelevant having an artificial device to interact when you can do that with your own natural device, your brain. And as we know, much more can be achieved from our natural development, the artificial creation is only a copy of what we can imagine with our mind, and the imagination isn't just a simulation (just a tip from a truly earthling).

Be as one, and you will be the one in yourself.
