i mean, yeah, it's a hell of a lot more convenient than calling all the time, and quicker, but at the same time, it allows you to say things you wouldn't otherwise say, which is probably for the best. if you wouldn't say it out loud, don't text it!* it's another stupid thing you do when you're drunk, and it's annoying to have to worry about protecting your messages from being read by others. and worst of all, it's a distraction, especially when you have a two page paper due on media bias on the health care reform bill due the next day!!
i don't know. it's very much a love/hate relationship with my phone at the moment. more towards love since i'm away from everyone i care about, but goddamn, i hate not being able to disconnect myself for a minute.
*note to self: take your own advice
