This virtual insanity that we participate in weekly, daily and hourly: please do not allow it to take over your life.
I've recently noticed that I know more about what the latest Kardashian is up to rather than what what's going on around the world, so when I go to participate in a conversation, I cannot and if I do it's because I've read it or seen a video about it on Facebook. So I ignore the conversation and continue on social media or playing a mind boggling game. Our generation and the generations below us are going to lose the art of conversation. I love the fact that the new Pokemon go app is getting people out and about but rather than taking in the scenery of where they are, they're staring at their phones.
I've seen Beyoncé, Rihanna, take that and endless acts in concert not in person but through my phone because rather than putting your phone away and taking in the vibes, music and atmosphere, you're watching the concert through your phone to show everyone on your Snapchat what you are watching. Just enjoy it. Don't get me wrong, I am guilty of all of these previous statements but I want to change. I want people to say good morning to me in person, ask me how my day is at the till point, speak to the person that I'm sitting next to on the train but it's frowned upon now.
I don't understand. My dad comes from a beautiful place called Whitehaven, a tiny town where everyone knows everyone and most of them are shite with technology but everyone says good morning to each other and it honestly brightens your day. Simple human interaction with strangers should not be frowned upon. It's human nature. We check our phones first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Why can't we go back to the time when it was normal to interact with strangers and not be scared or think of them as complete weirdos?
