the new age

homework now

this is pebble, say hi to pebble. he lets me read texts without taking my phone out of my pocket so i can justify whether to pause everything and reply, he lets me change music tracks on my phone safely so i do not have to look away from the road, he does not tell me how far i ran or how poorly i slept the previous night. he is basic, he helps me, fit bit told me to walk more, fitbit told me to sleep better. be like pebble, i like pebble.

the great 0utd00rs

so granted that i am a geek and a gadget loving kind of person, i like the sound idea of not molding the mind of my child to be habitually attached to some sort of "device". so as long as it is decent weather we stay outside as long as humanly possible and partake in activities such as puddle jumping like the good ol days.

h0w many things d0 y0u need t0 d0 at 0nce?

how much of a hurry are we in that everyone has that ever habitual urge to get to that call or that text no matter where they so happen to be. there are places and times that it is simply not suitable to have a close relationship with  your technology. Driving is the primary locale where that is applicable. most everyone has been there, done that.

there was once a time where no one could get a hold of you while you were in transit from point a to point b. they got by, they survived until they got a hold of you or you got back to them. that same idea still applies nowadays. if no one heard from you during your 10 minute drive to your next destination, in most cases time would pass normally as it always has been until you can give it your undivided attention.

what do most people do when they are talking on the phone? they pace, they lose focus on the task they are trying to accomplish whether it be picking out groceries, or driving.it is interesting to think how our brain functions like the technology we use. it essentially RAM which can be compared to our attention span. once this RAM get filled by things we are doing error begin to occur. one thing that i fund exceptionally amusing is that one thing so many of us do when we are driving, we turn down the radio when we are looking for something like an address. that is our brains making us switch focus. however replace the radio for a phone, we are unable to turn that down and we have begun to incorporate that into our daily lives so much so that its higher on the list of priorities than so many other tasks.

why does it have to be so imperative that everything be answered immediately? but hey, from what it seems the same technology is distracting you in the near future may just be taking over entirely and driving for you. technology in some cases moves faster than we can keep up with. try to keep up with everything and you can get stretched thin.

40 days unplugged and in c0ntr0l 0f y0ur tech



some people give up sugary delights, some a certain beverage, some get much more serious about their sacrifice. albeit tough, nowadays that is nothing compared to trying to yield another crutch, the technology you use regularly. go tweet free, or leave the evidence of your instagram journey's to the imagination of your followers, or update your status by simply enjoying the experience free of sharing it with those not immediately around you. 
what is this craziness i speak of? you cannot endure even a few hours without a phone or a digital social connection. with a trivial amount of hypocrisy i say this since i am indeed connected in numerous ways to put this out there. so obviously for most of us, we cannot completely unplug as we need certain things. for a short duration, back away from the facebook, slowly.
now do not think that giving up something like this is just a trivial test of your resolve, cause that is not the case here. there should be a purpose, something of deeper meaning but simple. get more out of that time you now have. do something you enjoy doing, work on your hobby, start a hobby if you dont have one. sharing endless funny pictures you run across is not a qualified activity but i, of course am plenty guilty of that as well.
