I have a long list of confessions. Things about myself that most people probably wouldn’t guess. Nothing too life shattering, but I thought it might be good to record some of my own quirks.
Confessions # 1
I wouldn’t go on a vacation if I couldn’t access the internet and my cell phone.
The one exception to this would be if it is only for one night, or if it involves camping. If it is over night – I can go two days with out the internet. I would still want to have cell phone service in case of emergencies, but I would be happy to leave it in the car.
But, if I am staying in a hotel, or… any where other than a tent, I would really really like to have internet. It’s kind of like my life line to the rest of the world.
You are five times more likely to get a response from me if the contact is done in written form (e-mail or text message) than if it is a phone call or voicemail. Luckily… my voice mail is now put into text, and then texted to me. It’s a beautiful thing.
(Though… some times I leave my phone at home just so that people can’t reach me.)
So tell me, how addicted are you to the inter-webs? Are you happy to ditch the phone and computer for several days? What would it take to convince you a vacation is worth taking, if you knew there would be no internet or cell phones?
