For 72 hours I cut out all social media sites and my smartphone. What I thought would be extremely easy proved to be very difficult. Technology has been so ingrained in my life that it is now hard to cut it out. I think that because I was forced to get rid of it, it’s a lot harder to fathom then deciding to give it up. Technology is shaping our society in so many ways. You can no longer walk down the street without seeing headphones in someone’s ear, or almost running into a person on their phone not paying attention. People are so caught up in social media and technology that they forget what it is like to not have it, I know I have. And I know I am trying to do better, and to remember and experience again the days without social media.
