Now it is 5:16. I have barely moved from my swiveling desk chair. Why? I am addicted to my technology conveniences (see yesterday’s post) For the last few hours I have been exploring the musical world of npr podcasts. So exciting and FREE! Also, I have changed you tube videos into files that I can save on my ipod…yet another free entertainment. Convenience. Yes, a great one. (I told you I would come back to this.) But how do people get things done? This I do not know. For example, let me go back to my 12 hours of facebook. For those of you that I don’t know, I joined one evening while I was bored and Mark was watching UFC mess, and for probably 6 hours straight I “facebooked.” Then the next morning before leaving for church, I facebooked. Came home from church and immediately I was checking it…..DEPENDENCE! That is what I was thinking. I guess not dependence, more addiction, comsumption…Regardless, I erased it. It is the new heroin. The alcoholic of today is a gamer, a blogger, a facebooker….this convenience becomes a dependence! Ahhh…it is a never ending mess. Maybe the next post..MODERATION.
(you should check it out though. npr: all songs considered and the live concerts from all songs considered. just be sure you aren’t supposed to be taking care of your children, working, or other responsible things first…)
