i personally know im not addicted to technology as ive gone a couple months without a cell phone (i hardly use mine anyway) and computer (so no net access, duh) for no other reason than it was inconvenient to access either. technology is quite nice but it doesnt define me.

When I go on vacation I'll only check the Internet once a day, but other than that I have to be connected to know whats going on with friends, family and news.
