I remember when my life was so simple. I used to get excited to receive a letter in the mail, that was the way we communicated. These days, I can't go a day without my phone ringing, beeping or vibrating. From the calls to the texts to the email notices, I just can't take it anymore! I so badly need to take a break from all of the electronic and media devices. They are driving me nuts!
Instead of traditional letters and phone calls, we rely on a mobile device. They are cute, small and do just about anything we need them to. I'm such a nerd.
While the constant contact is nerve wrecking, I will admit that if it wasn't for my MAC and my anDROID, I would be bored out of my mind. There are people who literally get upset when I don't respond to their emails and texts in a "timely" fashion. I have had to tell people that I'm not as attached to the device on my hip as they think. When I was in high school, I learned how to type using the standard home row. Now, I type with my thumbs... WTF?
Take time this weekend to connect with a friend in person. Go to a movie and shut off your phone for 2 hours. Enjoy people again!
Until next time...
