    I will never have a cell phone. I have no need for it and don't wish to spend my money that way.

    I spend too much time on my phone partly because I'm trying to find answers to my teens questions that I don't have the answer to because it's about calculus or some other work that I haven't done in years

    I spend more time on my cellphone than I probably should. Often times when I?m on I?m looking at recipes and ideas on Pinterest or responding to emails/ keeping in contact with people I don?t get to see in person regularly. There needs to be moderation in screen time but It can be equally rewarding as it is harmful.
