To Connect Or Disconnect, That Is The Question

Recently, I’ve been inspired to disconnect from electronics. For a little while at least. 

This past weekend alone, I spent over 12 hours staring at various screens,and it was draining. No matter how much I tried to relax and take a break, the screens were always there to lure me back in. 

Even now, I’m using my phone to write this very post. 

The first thing I do in the morning? Check my phone.

Going to bed? Check my phone.

Free time? Usually on my phone or computer. 

It feels like we as a society are glued to our screens, without realizing the repercussions. Instead of going to a library to look something up, we quickly type it into a search engine to avoid making any effort to try.

Human interaction? Why do we need that when we have the Internet to occupy our time?

Now I know this all sounds harsh, but when you really think about it, maybe harsh is the wake-up call we need to get away from our electronics and self-reflect. 

But before I disconnect, let me just Google ” best ways to self-reflect”. 

Chapter 317 & 318: Television

Happy Wednesday!

Television. It is a huge part of our lives, and lately, it seems to be heading towards the path of social media sites. Sites such as Netflix and Hulu stream shows (some for free), making it possible for viewers to access content on a device other than their television screens.

Is that a good thing? It means that technology is advancing, that new breakthroughs and ideas are coming to light each and every day in this fast-paced world of ours. 

But could it be a bad thing? The television industry is suffering from the use of other technology to view shows, with ratings and viewership suffering from the lack of viewers tuning in to live shows/new episodes.

Technology is an amazing thing, but it is also terrifying. And it’ll keep changing, evolving into something bigger and better. And I guess we’re just going along for the ride.

So, what do you think about the advancement of technology?

Have an awesome week! xxoo

P.S. I’ve decided to try something new out, a Quote Of The Day (QOTD)! Let me know what you think of this idea 🙂
