I have always seen phones as a burden. To me they were always a parody. On one hand you need the phone to connect to people. On the other had you disconnect from yourself. With the grim chance that I might get sucked into the world of Zombie-phone-walker-sleeper-texter; I took a leap of faith (also because I had no choice).
Sometimes its nice to know you can creatively express yourself whether your stuck in traffic or sitting on a mountain top with just your phone.
