It's been three whole days! Three (and-a-half) whole days since I checked my gmail, google reader, blog, hotmail, university emails, and even my facebook!
In fact, I only got online a minute here and there to look up a store address or get a restaurant phone number. The internet is great and all for specific purposes, but this detox period made me see how much I can actually do when I don't aimlessly surf the net for hours......such as aimlessly walking along the river for hours-hey at least that's physical activity! Or I can mindlessly talk on the phone for hours; no matter how trivial the subjects we're conversing about are, it's still human bonding-an essential need that people have.
So what's the longest time you've gone refraining from all tools of virtual communication voluntarily? If you can't recall the time then it wasn't long enough!
