Turn It All Off

A few days ago, I experience something I don’t think I’ve ever felt in all my years of technology use. I didn’t want to use any of it. I was also in a very asocial mood.

I didn’t want to be on any form of social network site. I didn’t want to converse with anyone via whatsapp. I couldn’t find anything on my computer, iPad or iPhone that I wanted to do…be it games or what have you…to satisfy me. I got bored.

I even tried starting a new Pokemon Sapphire game and just stopped after 1.5 hours of gameplay because I got bored.

I wanted to try reading a book that I started…on my iPad but got bored and sleepy. And I thought to myself, “I really miss having a physical novel to flip through.”

I just wanted to turn off everything and be with just me for a day.

And so, for a few hours, I was relaxing and took some peace away from the snares of the modern world of technology. My, how we have become so attached to these devices.

I hope you’ve all had a fantastic Christmas.

    I totally get what you’re saying about having a physical book to read. I bought a Nook and I was so ready to read with it, but then I realized it’s not the same experience. So I’ve been going to the library or purchasing physical books to read. It’s just a lot more satisfying flipping the last page of a physical book, right?

      Yep! There’s nothing more satisfying about reading than seeing the progress and how much closer you are to the end. Ah! Just knowing page numbers isn’t quite enough…
