...It’s the conversations I’ve had, the people I’ve met, the relationships that have reconnected. That’s what’s made Offline October so worth it. I don’t have to sit with someone and worry about what to post so people knew I was here. I’m living in the moment, living in the now, and realizing how amazing that is. It’s crazy what you notice when something’s gone. Like how many times I’d check my phone without any need, take my eyes off the person I’m in the middle of a conversation with, and even the itch I’d get when I didn’t have my phone in class. It had become a part of my identity, and I’m so glad I have had the chance to gain that back.
