We’re not being “cell” fish


Arely Martinez, Staff Writer

My phone is important to me because it’s done so much for me, although it’s like an addiction. Actually I’m watching a show on my phone as I’m typing right now. Anywho, my cell phone is one of the most important things in my life.

I share my location with friends and family in case anything happens to me or if I lose my phone. It’s also saved me from feeling so awkward. For example, whenever I’m feeling uncomfortable or nervous, I listen to music to feel calmer or I text the group chat I have with my friends. It also keeps me in contact with family I haven’t seen in years or I Facetime them. It’s like a distraction from my real life. Whenever I’m feeling stressed I go on my phone to check my social media or go on Tik Tok.

To be honest I’m not sure what I’d do without my phone. I genuinely feel like I’d go crazy without it. I used to tell myself that I wouldn’t be addicted to it like everyone else, but I cannot go a day without my phone. It just makes me feel safer when I’m not home. Everything I need is honestly just a call away.  If I can’t get home, I can order an Uber or if I’m lost somewhere I can send my location to my parents and they can come get me, or I can even find my way home with my phone. The possibilities are endless.

I feel like you can get anything done on a phone and that’s why it’s so important to me, because it can do basically anything I need.  Something other students, and teachers, can relate to.
