When I go to the gym and leave my iPod behind so I can actually talk to the other people there.
It is very difficult for me to completely leave technology behind. I always want to sneak that look just to see if an important email has come in. The only way I can really leave it behind is by force - I go somewhere that even the cell coverage cannot reach. These places are getting fewer and fewer though. The bottom of the Grand Canyon and the Boundary Waters in Canada are two I've been to recently.
I used to be content with myself (without technology) just being, thinking my little thoughts - I was totally self entertained. Two days ago my internet went out for 15 min and I felt like a smoker who had just run out of cigarettes and the only thing I could think was "I need MORE!". I never intentionally try to escape technology, but when I have on accident, like forgetting my phone, or by natures will (power outage) after a brief moment of panic and separation anxiety I find myself again, this person who can just sit and be happy with her own thoughts.
