Technology

I love how technology is supposed to make our lives easier, yet when my computer had to be sent in to get fixed and my backup one crashed, my life felt like it had to be put on hold. It really made me realize how dependent myself and our society has become on technology. Not having a cell phone can be like losing a vital organ or seem like you’re missing a limb. Does anyone remember the days when you had to memorize the HOME phone number of friends? Seems so far away now!

About Kailee Crawford

I'm an Oregon-born travel addict living in New York making the most of my vacation days. I started this travel blog to keep track of my bucket list and it's morphed into a journal of my adventures and recommendations for things to see, do, eat and drink. My hope is that I can help other travelers find their way. I want to try everything once and to live a life without regrets or missed opportunities. I call my philosophy on life the "the death bed philosophy" - I want to be laying in my death bed reflecting on all of the things I've done and seen in this world, not the things I wished I had done. It's not meant to be morbid, just a reminder to take risks, go out of your comfort zone and live life to the fullest. ♫♫♫♫♫ "You were only waiting for this moment to be free" --- "Blackbird" by The Beatles This quote is undoubtedly my favorite quote because it's a reminder of the infinite opportunities available to us. That in each moment there is an opportunity to find true happiness, and a sense of freedom when you're doing what you love. Freedom to explore, to create, to improve oneself, and to find fulfillment even during the 9 to 5 grind. ♫♫♫♫♫ I'm an incredibly pensive person with a wide variety of interests. In addition to traveling, my guilty pleasures include wine, food, music, art, languages and history. I grew up a nerd, watching The History Channel and reading The Lord of the Rings with my Dad. I'm driven by my pursuit of knowledge and growth and most passionate when I'm able to be creative. ♫♫♫♫♫

  1. I went to house sit at a really remote place once without internet/tv/anything. I thought I was going to go crazy being all alone without any of that stuff.

    • It’s tough, right?!? I definitely wasn’t nearly as functional as I usually was without being able to use my computer during school. If it hadn’t come at such a critical time, it actually would have been nice to be disconnected for a bit. (maybe)
