living without phone = DISASTER!!

*Caution: Long Entry*

Have you ever imagine living without phone in today’s world scenario? Where communication is the key or should I say essential in everyday life? Well, I made myself leave my phone and or in my case, I shall call it matter of communication for one whole day. I could say that leaving my phones is by far one of the hardest things I have done in my life. I had experienced such an encounter before where my phone went off for approximately four hours at the faculty and I was all hay-wired and cranky all of the sudden due to being unable to communicate through them (yes, them. I have two phones). Let me conclude the day as almost disastrous and unproductive.

First, I am going to say about my state of mind on that day. It was everywhere. My mind kept on thinking about my phone and the possibility that people might have contacted me through calls or messages. Before that, I slept at my friends’ place as I have no alarm to wake me up as my phone used to serve that purpose, now my friends is my new alarm. Thus waking up, I was so scared to fall asleep again as I might overslept and missed my class, so I busy myself up. I did my laundry just to ensure I was awake. Then, after looking at the time on my roommates’ clock, I rushed to the bus stop to get to the faculty. And let me just say that I was so disturbed. My fingers were always moving as if I am texting someone and I kept on checking my pocket for phone. I was distressed by the fact that my phones were not there. One of the reasons would be not knowing what time was it at the moment. However, things are about to get worse once I arrived at the faculty.

Once I arrived, most people say about how distressed do I looked. I answered by saying my phone is not here. And there were some faces showing more to fear than shocked to know the fact. The worst part was seeing others with them and knowing mine is somewhere in my closet. But I pulled myself together and said to myself “I will survive the day”. Barely. One annoying fact about me that day was I kept on asking about time. I should get a watch in the near future I think. Then, I keep on ogling at others’ phone as I am somehow envious towards them. You could see how attached am I to my phone. They mean the world to me. For now that is. Without my phone by my side, I have no idea when will my class ends. This left me anxious and making me to questioned the time. As a result, I suffered from depravity of concentration in my classes that day. Oh, I must say that I picked the busiest day of my week to leave my phone. That was a very smart choice, not.

Now, I am going to share what I have missed throughout the day. From my phone point of view that is. First, there was a message asking about my friend’s well being because he was aggravated by one of our friend’s behavior earlier on. Which I have full access to the problem and yet could not answer the question. Then, there were several missed calls from a particular friend of mine. And he confronted me in the faculty earlier on about it. He was asking about classes and what does he need to do and he cannot remember his group for an assignment. He did receive the answer, only later because I could not answer my phone. Luckily there were none from my family pertaining family matters.

I also faced several misfortunes by not having my phone around. One of it was did not know that a class was cancelled. Thus, it makes me rushed all the way from the library only to find that the class is empty and my friends were hanging out at TESL square. Then, I wanted to share my music interest with a friend of mine, as she never heard any song from a singer that I loved so much. So, I put y hand in the pocket and grab for my phone. Wait, it was not there. Therefore, I cannot share the music with her then. Another thing that happened on that day was we being locked outside the class for the keys could not be found. I, being the students who always have credits in my pone was to be asked to call the person who have the key, but cannot do so for my phone was locked inside my closet. Later that evening, my friend wanted to go to the night market to buy themselves some dinner and they wanted to go with me. However, they have to wait for me at the bus stop and finally say it directly to me. Pity them for the wait. But it is just that my phone was not around.

As a conclusion, I could say that phone is one of the biggest necessities in my life right now. If phone were never invented, we might not feel the burden of not having it. But since it has become a part of our lives, it is just something that we cannot live without. With the convenience that it provides to us, it is just unimaginable to live without it right now, in today’s world situation.
