Going 31 hours was interesting. it wasn't hard to do, but i did feel disconnected from people. I know that my parents needed to talk to me and i couldn't and they thought i was just ignoring them. my friends kept texting me and wondering why i wasn't answering them. I think the phone does bring people together somewhat. I have friends all over the world and i do like to talk to them and the phone is an easy way to. it is such an easy way to keep in touch with each other. this is my lonely phone..
