    He's right...you know that, he's absolutely right, I miss the times that I was Amish...ive been trying what he's done for a while with great success. I use a Samsung E1105t (has no data connection, no camera, polyphonic ringtones) as my personal phone now. I wish I had never used the internet, life would be so much better now. Now I'm just an apathetic entity that feels nothing but boredom and the greatest regrets. (let's not discuss it please)

    had a Nokia 3310 back then (2000-2002) life was simple and great...enjoyed the simplest things such as staring at the clouds and enjoying view points. Now all that is lost with the constant entertainment a smartphone provides. You forget the little things.

    Ok, basically having entertainment available permanently made me too "spoilt" to enjoy the simple things that i used to like doing such as hobbies or the more simple things such as just, in this case "staring at the clouds and stars"...i cant enjoy these things anymore as technology has influenced/changed my life too much.

    About the Amish thing, i am not referring to a religious sect, i am simply saying that i wish to put allot of distance between me and electronic gadgets such as smart/feature phones, computers and anything related to the internet.

    Why?

    i wish to make every effort to become my "old" self again. i know you probably think its dumb and excruciatingly illogical but that's what i wish to do...or try

    Because of technology, and a social forum, which this is, you were able to open up and share your thoughts and feelings. This is healthy.

    You could use technology to educate yourself about those stars, or how to brush goats. The Internet is great, if you use it to your advantage.
