No more phone number

Life without a phone (number)

I’m no longer a number. Well, no longer a phone number that is. I’ll be still a VAT-number, social security number, passport number and all the other numbers governments and companies make out of us. But, no longer a phone number. I just ended my phone subscription and I’m not planning to get a new one for a while.

I have had my phone number 06-20420395 for over 14 years. I still know the day I got it. It was the year 2000 and I just came back from Australia, where I worked and traveled for a full year. I crashed at my sisters place, having no house and no money. But I was full of ideas and great plans. I wanted to start working as a freelance journalist. I actually just did that when I was travelling in Australia and now I wanted to make my life out of it. Doing more travelling, more writing. I had an easy start. Brabants Dagblad wanted me to come back and work for them. I left a good job with them to travel through Australia and now they wanted me back. I figured I could combine working there nicely with freelancing for other magazines and companies as well.

To get started, I needed a phone. Believe me or not, but I’m that old that having a mobile phone wasn’t that common yet. So I went to the shopping center in Hellevoetsluit and bought me a nice, tiny Siemens mobile phone. Still one with an antenna on top of it and chose a number I could remember easily: 06-20420395. Ever since it has been the phone number of my journalistic company, the phone number of my massage practice, the phone number of my yoga school and the number I used privately. But in a few days, it will be someone else’s number and I will continue living without a phone. It will be a bit of a challenge, because with a lot of websites, companies etc. you need to fill in a phone number. Not filling one in, is no option. But will see. For know I like the thought of having no more what’s app, sms and calls. More silence….

So if you want to reach me, it has to be by email, through this site of by Facebook.
