Consequently, my attention span has shortened being that I cannot just be somewhere doing absolutely nothing without reaching into my pocket and getting my cell phone out. I always want to be on my cell phone. Technology has evolved greatly, but as time goes on technology is becoming viewed more as a necessary evil.
