*DISCLAIMER* This post may come off as pretentious, but I assure you it’s not.
Sometimes it’s nice to have somewhere offline to go and gather your thoughts, away from the noise and the vibrancy that is technology. You may be thinking, “you’re using tech to write this post” but in order to bring this kind of awareness to people, it’s necessary for me to write this on a platform which is viewable by the audience affected by the aforementioned issues.
Let’s take a look at this for a moment.
I won’t deny for a second that tech has become a part of our world. It has, and I’m fully aware of this, and I accept it for what it is. We’re now at a stage where we as a society rely on technology for almost everything – communication, as a means to earn money, even food, to some extent. We need technology in order to survive. It doesn’t have to be that way all the time, though.
As a writer, I feel the need to want to write and generate ideas on a daily basis, and it’s why I carry little books to take notes in. They’re small, fit in my pocket and I can pull it out and take notes wherever I am. You don’t have to be a writer to carry around one of these things. I suggest it to everyone, writer or not. You need to unwind sometimes, take a break from all of the nonsensical BS that you’re exposed to on your Facebook feed every day.
Relax, grab a book, read a little, write a little. Don’t get dragged into the constant sea of drama that is Facebook, Twitter or any other social media. It’s good to be sociable, just try to do it offline sometimes.
Time to go ghost for a bit.
