I'm going to post this through social media (which is ironic) but the purpose of this project is to disconnect myself from the online world. I feel in our day and age we've become too dependent on the online world. In fact we cannot function without it. All those movies about machines taking over: Terminator, I, Robot and Matrix are being lived today. WE ARE SLAVES TO THE MACHINES NOW. And I'm blaming one device: SMART PHONES. They're too smart for us that they've enslaved us.
I'm not preaching. I'm guilty too. I'm a Tommy Texter and a Social Media Sam. My attention span is so poor within three seconds of a conversation whether it's casual or professional I've tuned out. Blah blah blah what was that?
So I'm doing myself a favour and taking this first small step in improving my attention span, observation skills and socializing skills by DOWNGRADING MY PHONE. I probably will still get a smart phone but a lesser version with DATA BLOCK. I'm contemplating on a Wifi option just in case of emergency.
I already suspended my Facebook account, limited my twitter accessibility and signed off from the message boards I frequented before.
I'm taking time off so I can more time offline :-)
