hi. my name is jason. and i'm addicted to instagram and facebook likes. and text messages.
we, as a society, live so interconnected. you (yes, YOU) are a couple keystrokes of the very device i'm tying with now away from a "connection."
i might be busy when i get a text or not hear the notification. so much is lost in all these different forms of communication. feeling get hurt, mine especially, when folks don't respond to a message. especially when you're texting someone who's constantly on their phone when you're with them.
although this web is vast and the advancements in technology have made the world smaller and more accessible, i feel the opposite of connected. from you. from myself at times.
i don't know how, really, to reverse these feelings.
i've tried deleting facebook. i've tried not communicating by text. i've gone years, even, without having internet. those attempts did nothing besides further alienate myself from this thing we call society.
who makes decisions based on what everybody else is doing?
i never used to. at least, i very rarely did
i find myself sharing insignificant information about what i'm doing because i need attention/i want some sort of connection/gratification or just because everybody else is doing it too.
my goal for the week: no status updates.
