I think it’s interesting that you bring up our increased dependence on phones/gadgets. I don’t necessarily have a problem with my huge dependence on my phone, but it does scare me. If there were a blackout, and I lost the ability to plug my phone in to charge it, I don’t know what I would do. If I lost it for a few days, I would be completely lost. I hate that I’m so attached to my devices that I would really struggle with meeting my basic needs if I were to lose it.
