Perks of Having No Phone
People who say that phone's their life, it's a lie! When you live without any phone, that's when you can have a real life or perhaps finding your life. Life that depends on phones produces more social feeling on the pseudo world of social #ifyouknowwhatimean. Why do people say that phone's is their life? Because probably you don't have any other interest beside chit chatting and being exist in the cyber world. Or maybe you're a very busy person and you keep all your schedule and contacts there. Or maybe you don't want to waste your 5 minutes queuing for food or ticket (that's what most people do, when they feel bored they'll take their phone out and check it as if something urgent happens).
So my 2.5 years old phone's broke and I've been living for a week without any phone :( But by looking on the bright side, I found 3 perks of having no phone.
Frist, you got time for things you think you don't have time for. Like, writing a blog! HA! Or perhaps like daydreaming cause that's when ideas come, creative people do need to daydream! #definitely. Phone = disturbance, When you live with your phone, you're not free enough to do whatever you want to do. Some will say that sky's the limit but I'll say phone's the limit. You can't let your mind wanders long enough cause after 2 minutes, your phone rings and you forget what you've wandered before. When you want to go to sleep, you can't cause your phone keeps disturbing you by ringing, when you want to eat you have to take pics of it several times to get the best one > edit > post it on instagram then you'll wait for how many likes you'll get (or not haha!) Or when you want to do things you always do when you're alone, you can't cause you have to report it to your boyfriend (if any & not always haha!). For all the 'me-timers' a.k.a people who like to have their 'me-time', without phone you probably will have more 'me time' so break your phone! #justkidding #notfunny
Second, you can be very productive when you don't have any phone with you. Remember why you can't use your study time effectively? Remember why you can't finish your assignments on time? It's all because of your phone, phone, PHONE! Or maybe the people or the world inside the phone but still, it's because of your phone! (Even if your phone is still Nokia 1110 and you can't stop playing snake! haha!) You can't be productive all day long cause you're too busy playing with your phone, chatting, scrolling over instagram, path, pinterest, etc, etc #basedontruestory.
Third, you can feel what anti-social people would feel. Yes, anti-social, well not really if you still have ipod, iPad or laptop with you, it will still just increase your anti-social level by percentage not higher than 50%. But still, you'll be anti-social.
I don't say that I'm happy with having no phone which I have to hold it on for another 2 weeks :( but I'm grateful though cause I have time to pour my thoughts into words and post this :D (even no one is interested to read haha!)
My advice of the day #AOTD is, when your phone's broke, don't be sad and just live with it! :)
