Downgrading my Phone to Upgrade my Life

I'm going to post this through social media (which is ironic) but the purpose of this project is to disconnect myself from the online world. I feel in our day and age we've become too dependent on the online world. In fact we cannot function without it. All those movies about machines taking over: Terminator, I, Robot and Matrix are being lived today. WE ARE SLAVES TO THE MACHINES NOW. And I'm blaming one device: SMART PHONES. They're too smart for us that they've enslaved us.

Then...

Today...

Today...

I'm not preaching. I'm guilty too. I'm a Tommy Texter and a Social Media Sam. My attention span is so poor within three seconds of a conversation whether it's casual or professional I've tuned out. Blah blah blah what was that?  

So I'm doing myself a favour and taking this first small step in improving my attention span, observation skills and socializing skills by DOWNGRADING MY PHONE. I probably will still get a smart phone but a lesser version with DATA BLOCK. I'm contemplating on a Wifi option just in case of emergency. 

I already suspended my Facebook account, limited my twitter accessibility and signed off from the message boards I frequented before. 

I'm taking time off so I can more time offline :-)
