Social distancing is a lot more difficult when your primary virtual connection to the world is also cut off.
I guess what I'm saying is, if ever you find yourself in the midst of a word wide pandemic, try to make sure you have a reliable cell phone.
I haven't had a phone for about 5 days now, and part of me would like to say it hasn't bothered me. But, really I just wish it didn't bother me so much.
I've found some ways to contact a few friends and my parents, but overall, that isolated feeling we're all feeling...I'm feeling it even more.
I'll admit it, I am addicted to my phone and my apps.
By the time this is over, and I get my new phone, if I can figure out how to set it up on my own, it will be about a week that I have had NO mobile device.
My goals with this are to realize that if I lived without it, I can live without it. I'm considering paring down on my "essential" apps and really working hard to put the phone down and live more.
Part of this entire pandemic quarantine situation is supposed to be looking on the bright side and making some positive changes that will stay with us. This is one of my positive changes that I really hope will stick.
