"That '70s Show' is a television sitcom about a group of teenagers living in a suburban town in Wisconsin in the 1970's. In episode 18 of season one of the comedy…

I had one minor slip up where I started looking at a phone because I was talking to a person who was getting the proper spelling for words off his phone. Other than that I did not notice a difference from my normal life. For the most part, I spend my time talking to people in person so that is what I did well unplugged. The biggest challenge was making sure I had my school work done before hand…
