Goodbye Internet…

One hour left of Internet 5EVER??

One hour? That’s it? without debating the how or why. I am given one last hour of internet and then everything on the internet is deleted forever. WOW.

The first thing I would do would be to start downloading pictures from Facebook that I would like to keep for my archives. Other than that, I don’t know if I would need anything else (depending on the circumstances). If there was disaster coming or something, maybe I would download maps, maybe I would download other helpful info like that. But if there was disaster like that, I would assume I would lose power and access to any digital technology anyway.

Mostly, I would miss the convenience of the internet, I would no longer be able to bank online, tweet a company my dissatisfaction, or use group chats to plan hangouts (that one might not be so bad haha). I guess I would get used to playing a lot of this game…

How many times a day do I pick up my phone?

I’m not gonna lie to you, I use my phone a lot. I’m not proud of it, but I’m honest. I use it for school, work, friends, fun, and a thousand more things. I can feel the empty space in my pocket when it isn’t in my pants. I get anxious when it get low on battery. When I am low on data and out of wifi range I feel left out. All of this considered, it might be easier to just count the time that I am not holding my phone.

Anyway, in a 24 hour period I picked up my phone 150 times. If my phone weighed more, I would have some serious arm strength (and some big pockets I guess). Apparently the average is 110 according to Daily Mail. I am above average, but that doesn’t surprise me. Especially since I would assume once everyone realized just how much they pick up their phone they knocked it a few notches down.

Reflecting on this, I am content. I mean I would like to be lower on the scale, but in the scope of things I am not that bad. I have friends who are way worse than me (the worst defence ever). But I use it for work a lot (I work in social media) so that is setting me up to fail. The other factor that didn’t help is that I actually have 2 phones, so that second phone really was a dagger. I wish I could just…

I forgot to disclude my IP address for my Google Analytics, so my numbers were a bit wonky I think. I don’t really see much traffic, which makes sense because I don’t advertise my site anywhere. It isn’t quite where I want it to be in terms of content and structure yet to open fully. Pretty much all of my traffic is from myself I am assuming or a few clicks from posiel or Gillians Blog. So no major thoughts yet. To be continued…
