    I Need It

    I need my cell phone. Its how I talk to friends, how I keep in touch with what is going on. I Sometimes wonder why I even have it because 99.9% of the time, if I don't message someone I won't hear from them.

    Living without it is impossible today; at work I

    Mainly Because . . .

    Mainly because it shows me the time. And I have to know what time it is every single minute. And because I can text message from time to time, I don't like talking on the phone.

    I don't know if this is weird but I don't have a home phone, none of my friends have home phones either. I only use my cell phone, I think the only person that I know that has a home phone is my mom and I always call her on her cell phone.
