Less than a week ago, I walked home through the city and when I stopped because the red light, looked around me. And what I saw, quite scared me. All people in my sight were looking into their phone! I tried to find ONE single person who don’t, but I couldn’t. And then I thought – thank god that my smartphone broke few month ago and now I have an old phone, and it’s such a nightmare to use Internet with that. So I rather not. Because I also had this addiction for smartphone. I remember walking and texting all the way to home or work, not to mention how much I used it in home. And I remember how few time I had for things I love. You can see how little I submitted new works in December and January.
Of course I believe that some of these people just were looking what the time is or just got the new message or smth like that. But also I am certain that many of these people were addicted like I were. I am nothing against the smartphones, I rather find them very useful. But as you can overconsume everything, you can overconsume Internet. And I rather look at the beautiful sky or trees or birds if walking, not at my phone. And maybe one day I’ll buy myself again the smartphone, but even then I want to I enjoy that wonderful world around me, not being trapped into the technological world.
