i think a lot of things are getting lost as we move on with technology. dont get me wrong i think there have been some great advances but its getting too much. why do we need to be able to get in touch with someone at the click of a button? in particular mobile phones and social networking sites- they are becoming more like mini computers. why would someone on a night out be updating their twitter/facebook/anything saying how much fun they are having when they are doing it? why bother telling people and miss out on having 1 more minute of fun? that and the fact its also a little rude to be typing away on a phone when you are in company. doesnt matter so much when you're in a group but the number of times i've been out with someone and they're constantly glued to their phone is ridiculous.
“It has gotten to the point where my days, crammed with all sorts of activities, feel like an Olympic endurance event: the 'everydayathon'...I hear an invisible stopwatch ticking, even when I'm supposed to be having fun.” - Jay Walljasper, writer and speaker (1999)
i also miss reading. since ive finished university there doesnt seem to be any time to read. or when i do i cant get stuck into a good book without my eyes getting tired. is there a way to train yourself to read again because i would like to know.
sometimes i wish i were living in the 80's.
