Thanks for sharing ...
I admit I am an internet addict..
I don't watch regular tv..(Netflix , and only with the wife ,its our time together )
I used to enjoy facebook.. and then I had people from high school (1990-94 for me) finding me to be friends .. and I accepted , although most were people I never even said more than "hey " as we passed each other in the hallway in HS.. anyway the race for the most followers was weird to me , because I didn't get what was so interesting about my life or thiers that i'd want to follow them, I didn't know or care about them or them about me ..( sounds horrible but i'm being honest here).so why do i care that a stranger pretty much is taking his kids to the park?
so I deleted all those . and only kept real friends and family .. because I am interested in what they are doing
then some members of my family became very politically opinionated on FB.. which became very annoying .. i thought facebook with frineds and family was supposed to be just lifes "fluff" , not constant opinions about politics...
anyway i used to check it every second ..i rarely go there.. and i don't miss it..well not in that way..
recently joined a Fuji group and so i check in every now then for that
Now theres Instagram..most of the people i follow are in the photography world.. i'm addicted to that now .. and checking in here on POTN .. FM also kind of , but the layout is different and i don't find it as easy to share photos .. and then when i'm home there youtube.. countless hours have been lost to youtube..
I actually believe that the internet has given me some sort of attention defecit disorder.. i find that i get bored very easily and need that constant visual stimulation.,,.
I miss the days when all i need was a good book... oh and fishing , although i wasn't good at it but i could sit there for hours with nothing in the bucket perfectly content .. and i was ok ,,, i didn't have a phone to check.. no internet ..
anyways.. I've been trying harder to get out and shoot more (and have been succeeding somewhat ) ... exercise .. go out for dinner , walks etc.. just get in touch with real life , as i feel like i do way too much watching others do on the internet what i'll do tomorrow , or next week
