How many times have we left the cellphone, the computer, the tablet or any technological gadget more than five minutes? This is the big question of our days, perhaps less than five minutes. After having checked all the statuses on Facebook and after having seen the photo on Instagram of your cousin with her Starbucks, you leave the cell phone aside and one minute later you repeat the same steps.
I decided to confront the harsh reality. I put my cell phone aside; turned off my computer and try to know how was live without the technology. Let me tell you that I understood the meaning of the word addiction. At the moment of having separated from what has become over time an extension of myself; I began to need to take my phone and check Whatsapp, the task had turned into a survival test.
I realized how annoying is to talk with someone that is always texting while is speaking with you. I finally discovered the most common problem of the people. It is becoming difficult be within the world if you don’t have a smartphone or a tablet.
I have to accept that I am one of these annoying people. It’s a big problem to me leave the cellphone more than 20 minutes. Sometimes I already checked all my social networks and I always give one checked more if I miss something. There’s life without technology. This mysterious world that nobody dares to know is called the real life.
I could realize that sometimes the technology can modify the interpersonal relations, in my experiment I could notice that I was not taking the time to talk with my mom without having the cellphone close and listening attentively what she was saying.
I finished my experiment, which did not last more than one hour. However, I discovered that I want to be part of a world that often turns dangerous. Now if you want to know how living without technology let me tell you that it is not fun. Sad, but true.
