It’s true! I’ve seen it! For quite a while now I’ve been noticing this trend. It’s actually really telling about what direction society is going in. More and more it’s easier to connect to people through social networks and e-mail. I know I’ve talked about this before but I don’t think I got my own message.
I can’t tell you how many times I get bored at work and I sat on Facebook waiting for a good status to comment on just to make people laugh. Like I needed some validation that I was funny and when it was validated I continued on that path. It’s stressful when you realize that the best status’ or comments you’ve had are from real life but you’re not living it. I’ve realized something, those people out there making a difference, they do something that in today’s world seems noble. They go outside, meet people, and have fun doing so!
Don’t get me wrong I love my friends Facebook or otherwise. Most I’ve never met but I wish to someday, maybe. It’s not going to happen sitting in front of a screen or holding a mobile device. So here’s what I’m going to do, after my barrage of posting this page, I’m going offline for a week. I’ll still have my phone so I’ll still text but no more Facebook. For a week. I’ll check e-mail, maybe a few news websites. That’s it. Nothing more.
Unless there is some major catastrophe that I’ll need some help, prayers, guidance, whatever, you won’t see me. Some of you are going to say “whatever” others will not read this and may ask where I am. Then again people might not.
There’s a whole world out there that I need to get back into. This is about survival as well. I’ll probably check out some schools and see what my chances are for scholarships and grants. Not that I want to take money from the government but if I can, I’ll better myself and hopefully not need to use other people’s money again.
