What I Lost

Darn. I lost my cellphone again. It must’ve fell from my srub’s sidepockets when I took the cab on my way home from work. I didn’t realize that it got lost until late in the evening. When I tried calling my number, it was already turned off. The sim card must have been removed already.

Yup, this is the second time. Call me silly. But the first time was worst. It was stolen. That was about two years ago when my knapsack was cut by a sharp blade or knife while I was walking in Manila. I only found out later that there was a hole in my bag, and my cellphone was missing. And that phone was the expensive-type. I had to pay it in five installments for five months. But I still have to thank God because I wasn’t hurt by that person who did it.

This time, the phone that I lost wasn’t the flashy-expensive type of phone so I wasn’t really very particular on how much money I lost with losing that phone. I feel that what I really lose was a part of my being.

Losing a phone nowadays is like losing a part of your life. All your friends and relatives’ numbers are there. Unless you write their numbers in an address book, which most of the time we don’t, then we will be able to contact them still. Now I feel I lose some friends whom I can only reach by their numbers.

Some important text messages that I tried not to delete are now gone forever. Now, I just have to consider it like I accidentally deleted them from the trash box.

Pictures unsaved to the computer are now lost as well. That includes short videos taken by the phone as well.

And how will I put together again my To-do list which was saved on that phone. Important dates will be like considered forgotten with losing the alarm reminders that goes with that phone that I lost.

I usually sleep with my phone under my pillow. I feel so secured knowing that I would wake up on time with the alarm. And that somebody can just call me anytime, even during my sleep, for important matters. Yes, I can get another phone and a new number, but it will still take time before I will be able to let everybody know about my new contact number. At this time, I can not be reached by phone yet. How sad.

It seemed my world has revolved around my phone for the last years, and my life’s activities has intertwined with my phone’s functions. It’s like having a partner. I think that is how life is these modern times. Technology has taken over our lives.

One thing is for sure at this time – I will surely miss my old phone, but I need to get a new one 🙂

    hi there,

    i’m sorry to hear about what happened to your phone. i guess the moral of the story is we should keep a hard copy of the phone number of the people in our mobile phones, just in case a worst scenario like this will happen, it will be easier for us to inform friends and relatives of our new number.

    Please do visit my blog as I already an updated post.

    I’m finally back to blogging:)

    I experienced this as well, I went to Divisoria back then, and on the way home, I found a really big slash on my bag. Buti na lang my phone and money were in my pockets that time, wala naman nawala, and I am thankful just like you na I didn’t get hurt.
