Technically, since the internet is not necessary for survival, I can live without the internet. However realistically, I don't believe I can. The internet is where I keep in touch with current friends, make new friends, and reconnect with old friends. It is where I do research and gain information. It is where I find entertainment. At this point, I almost live on the internet. Given the impact that the internet has had on my life, living without it would not be ideal.
