I noticed lately that I haven't really reached out to any friends and not one of them has texted, called or anything to say what's up. Kinda makes me feel like people are too wrapped up in their own lives to really keep in touch but thankfully I am usually out and about and busy so it doesn't bother me too much.
How many of you people if you left your phone off for a day would come back to missed calls or text messages from people wondering where you were? Personally at most I would have 1-2 but it'd have to be if I left it off for multiple days most likely.

If I left my phone off for a week nobody will have tried to contact me...because I'm so popular. But if I spend the night at a guys place I'm guaranteed to have 20 missed calls from my mother withing the space of as many minutes because she thinks I'm dead or have been kidnapped or something. It's like she can sense I'm having fun.
I'm taking a career break at the moment in a foreign country and so I reckon if I died in my apartment I could go 4 days before I'm missing from something and possibly a week or two before anyone thinks of contacting a family member. BTW I would never recommend that anybody spends too much time alone in a foreign country where they know nobody and don't speak the language. You end up writing paragraphs like this one.
Anyways yeah people are very absorbed in their own lives. It's survival I guess. Nothing personal but sometimes when you're run down or stressed a simple thing like a friendly chat can seem like far too much effort.0
