OFF-TOPIC High cell phone bill and an epiphany I had...


Aug 27, 2007
So I got a cell phone bill the other day that was $100 in extra fees from over-usage... :smx8: However, I had an epiphany - I've become addicted to mindless, wasted time talking on a cell phone (and "researching" on the internet for that matter).

The plan? I'm going old school - back to the land line only for a while. I mean do I really need a cell phone for mindless chit-chat? NO!!! Do I really need it living in the city with pay phones all around? NO!!!

Technology has become a big-time interruption in my life. It's both the internet and cell phones. The internet has so much information that one could become an endless researcher and never take a bit of action :smxE:... That seems to have crept into my life and it must stop!!!

Yeah it happens to me sometimes, even when I have work to do. I start searching for something and end up reading some guy's blog about anything! How do you avoid doing that?
