I don't think I could be Amish...
I've never really considered the idea of ditching technology for a long period of time. From personal experience, I feel completely awkward without having my phone on me for even brief periods of time. For Jake to be able to do that, I think it would take a HUGE amount of patience. I wouldn't be able to go more than a week without my cell phone unless required to do so. I need to have other distractions that will make me oblivious to the fact that I don't have it. I'd also have to ditch my iPod, which would be incredibly hard, because I'd be upset more frequently without my music. I admire Jake for being able to go so long without social media, and learning to improvise new ways to communicate not only with his friends and family, but others as well.
