I can’t remember the last time I sat down with my roommates without Snapchatting, BBMing, or watching YouTube videos while trying to carry on a conversation. This is a problem--and I don’t think I'm alone.
With everyone showcasing their highlight reels on social media, it’s easy to focus on our own behind-the-scenes footage and compare. I've got it all together, I swear.
The reality is that the cell phone has become an escape. It protects us from the awkwardness of silence or strangers. It keeps our heads down instead of looking up into the sunset.
If you can’t go out without your phone, on whom are you depending?
