–RULES–

1. Please follow both of the hosts: Myself and Kenzie

2. Include the super cute button in your post (grab the code above)

3. Link-up and spread the word

4. Don’t forget to have fun!

Answer these as best you can:

QUESTIONS–

1.) How connected are you to your phone? Do you always have it on you?

2.) Would you be able to be away from your computer for an entire week?

3.) If you had to get rid of one of the following, which would it be and why? Cell phone, computer, or TV?

4.) Do you think you could ever live “off the grid”?

5.) Tell us about a time you disconnected from technology/the world and how you dealt with it. Was it good or bad?

ANSWERS–

1.) Yes, I am pretty connected to it, however, I am not afraid to let it ring and go to voicemail. I got my first cell phone in 1998 and phased out a landline in 2001 so I am pretty used to it being my only mode of communication. The new smart phones are pretty much tiny computers so the fact that it does everything sort of forces me to have it with me all the time.

2.) If it weren’t for ongoing online teaching, I would totally give up the comp for a week. I don’t think I’d miss anything.

3.) I’m going to say cell phone, believe it or not. I still like having TV. perhaps it’s a generational thing because I asked my freshman this same question and their answers was unanimously TV.

4.) I watched this documentary about a small island off the coast near Vancouver and about 80 people live off the grid in homes they constructed. They barter. Their entire system revolves around self-reliance… and solar panels. Sure, a few leave for a day here and there and go buy things but for the most part, they’re totally on their own. I think I would get used to it. I’d need to have that one last straw that pushed me to abandon life as I know it and go that direction. I would probably end up really liking the freedom though.

5.) Whenever Ash and I take our weekend beach vacations, I don’t bring my laptop and I try not to call anyone (I have my phone in case something goes wrong with the kids). I’m totally happy fr a few days away from all that we’re tethered to.

  1. My husband would love to go back to a time before cell phones. He hates the fact that people can get hold of him all the time.

  2. John and I had a landline phone once during the 4+ years we have been together, and I think we only had it for a month. The only calls we got on it were from telemarketers! I love, love my iPhone 😀
    I am definitely going to have to check that link out! How awesome!
