Don't worryJul 22, 2019 at 12:43pmThey got an app for that. Question is tho ... who are they? Serious questionJul 22, 2019 at 1:51pmWhat did you do? Hike, cook, read? IronicJul 22, 2019 at 2:11pmSo, you felt the need to brag about it on the Internet looking for validation? You must have been sooo bored. I wish everyone who hates technology would stop using the Internet to post confessions. At least, you wouldn't be a hypocrite the way you are now. AnonymousJul 22, 2019 at 4:57pm@ Ironic.I called it OOeerr...Jul 22, 2019 at 4:59pmSo you had to go post it on the internet?What a winner. we will learnJul 22, 2019 at 8:53pmthat while it's amazing that we can connect with people we would never have met if not for the internet,It distracts us from our current rl connections.The way to improve the world is to start with your own surrounding world. Last week I watched 5 minutes of pornJul 23, 2019 at 5:51amwhere a straight guy, (apparently unaware that he was being videoed) scrolled through his phone the full time that he was receiving oral service from a gay guy. I don't know if he was multitasking or what, but I laughed all the way through it. PLEASE, know when to put your phone away! @Serious questionJul 23, 2019 at 9:18amI did all of the things you mentioned, as well as some other projects and hobbies I've been putting off. For some time now I've also made sure I never have my phone out when others are around so I can be present when I'm with other humans. We give our phones so much facetime and not a lot of people give full facetime to their friends. @@Serious questionJul 23, 2019 at 9:50pmI'm able to have a job, friends, hobbies, and plenty of "me-time" without needing to disconnect for half a week. If you can't stop checking your social media without unplugging all your devices, it appears you have a problem with addiction. Smart devices aren't made for people with self-control problems.
