How long can you go without an internet data plan?
I feel I’m taking part in a social experiment. In this day and age, everyone I hold near and dear to my heart have instant access to their social networking sites and instant messaging services.
I wonder how my social life (if there’s any) will drastically change.
Since 2011, my gadgets enabled me to go online all the time. It was a necessity in my previous job. After almost two years, I’m cutting off my 24/7 internet access.
This says a lot about my current lifestyle. I no longer feel the need to check on my Inbox for fear of missing important e-mail messages from people from various islands of the Philippines. Checking in on Foursquare is not that appealing anymore. I became more critical of the Facebook statuses and tweets that i post. Especially after I read 7 Ways to be Insufferable on Facebook (this is a good one, a must-read, it would change your social networking sites habit). It made me realize the truth behind this:
I still treasure my social network sites. I still check my e-mails a lot. But this time, it should not cost me. I only check them when I’m connected on a free Wi-Fi service, like when I’m home, in major malls and in the office.
I’m trying to implement changes in my life and in my finances. So hopefully, I could save a little for myself and in my wallet . Wish me luck!
