The journey of life without a phone

By Riya Bhula

Six months without a phone. You’re probably wondering what that must feel like. What it might feel like to be completely detached from your friends, social life and the world in general. Instead of it turning out to be torturous, it happened to open my eyes to the world. I spent six months without a phone.

Parking ended up costing $14, which is better than the $30 other places were asking. As we walked up to the venue, it was packed. I noticed almost immediately that I was probably the only person under the age of 50 within eye shot, besides my mom. This didn’t really shock me though because of Cher’s age and popularity throughout the world.
