久しぶりにスマホ無しの生活

 

If you are a listner of GoGoエイブ会話 maybe you heard that I recently broke my smartphone.  (>_<)

Since then, I have realized how much I was using it everyday.


When smartphones first became popular, I saw many people looking at their screen all the time, and I thought that I didn’t want to be like them.  Like a zombie!


However, when the Great Earthquake of East Japan hit on 11/3/11, the area I live in was badly damaged.  I couldn’t use my cell phone at all.  One of my friends had a smartphone, and he could use it for maps, news, and to communicate with friends and family - even when regular cell phones were not working.  His phone helped us a lot in the days and weeks after the earthquake.


After that, I decided to get a smartphone.   It had so many new functions, and games (and podcasts!) – I was amazed!  It was so convenient to use, and it cost about the same as a regular phone.  After only a few weeks, I became a zombie too...  :(


Now, for the first time in 5 years, I don’t have a smartphone.  At first it felt strange to be "disconnected", but now (after 6 days) it feels kind of good!  I feel a little more free than before.


I think not having a smartphone makes you pay more attention to the things and people around you in the real world.  I will continue for a few weeks without one, and maybe in the future I will try to have a "no phone day" once in awhile.


でもやっぱiPhone7を楽しみにしてるな〜  笑笑笑
