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.
