First things first! I took the picture shown above, in the train on my way home from work. I remember that for the first few stops, the female passenger was alone and with her head buried in her smartphone . Then the male passenger came in and then I realized that they knew each other. The thing that I noticed the most was, that when the guy boarded the train, they said a few words to one another, then they both buried they heads in their smartphone . For about the next six to seven stops, they did not say a word to one another because they were too busy with whatever was going on in their own little world.
Hey look I have to admit, that up until about a year ago, I came to the conclusion that I was addicted to social media. My fix was the not so famous Google+. As a matter of fact, I used to post so much shit on a daily basis, that there were days that I would fall behind on my work. I guess that what really open my eyes to my own addiction was, when I was trying to have a conversation with someone and they kept checking their stupid smartphone. Then I started to notice how a lot of the people in the train, had their heads buried in their phones, even if they were riding with someone they knew next to them. I still use social media sometimes, but I don’t let it control my free time anymore. I’d rather have someone call me, than to post to my wall or stream. Call me old school, but I really enjoy face to face interaction more than anything else.
With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!
