Catching up with the modern world
Posted by dreaminneon
I am fully aware that I have not been on here in far too long. I was just starting my bout of a hundred days of happiness, and then a load of unimaginable drama fell onto my lap. I considered looking back at these photos to remind myself that I do have my happy times in life, and I should be grateful for those times while I endure the unpleasantries, but I just couldn’t.
I took a long time away from the modern world. No Facebook. No Twitter. I hid my phone. I was going back to the beginning. Back to… I suppose junior high would be about right. It’s interesting to leave the modern world behind. You don’t truly realize how often you check social media until you get rid of it. At every moment of boredom you pick up your phone to see what’s new on Facebook or Twitter. It’s unbelievable. And then when I got back into it, I realized I missed NOTHING. There was not a single mention of breaking news in anyone’s lives. It was all the same. It was like I never left. Crazy.
Anyways, I feel like I should get back into the swing of things – writing wise, of course. My friends still tell me I should write down a lot of what I’ve been through in a book. Maybe I’ll finally get into that. I mean, I do have a lot to add to that…
For the moment, life is getting better. It’s still scary. It’s still full of paranoia of what might happen. But I have a great group of people in my life who will always be there for me no matter what someone else tries to do to me.
I hope you have amazing people in your life who will care for you through the worst of times.
