Good morning crew,
I know that not having a cell phone is an inconvenience, but I always thought that by not having one I was saving myself from the distraction and annoyance that comes from being constantly connected to the world.
But just yesterday I read an article which said that adolescents who become overly dependent upon their smartphones experience ADHD, anxiety, social apathy, reduced motivation, dissatisfaction, and difficulty solving problems and planning ahead.
Which pretty much sums up my life already.
So what benefit am I getting from being 'disconnected'? Now I'm starting to think that as long as I already have all the side effects of having smartphone addiction, I might as well have the phone, too.
Laugh it up,

A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that... is the beginning of a new argument.
Women love cats.

Mothers come in all shapes and sizes. For example, an Italian Mother might chastise her offspring for not eating by saying, "Eat your dinner, or I'll kill you."
A Jewish Mother on the other hand would say, "Eat your dinner, or I'll kill myself."
