in the quiet place, there are no capsletters that are all big and yell at you
also, there are no facebook notifications
have you ever noticed how many things require your attention?
you're probably thinking about all the great notifications you are missing right now
try to be patient
just for a couple of minutes
just to clean your head for a while
i can assure you that you are not missing anything important that can't wait
and if you are worried, i can sum it up for you
some "friend" you don't know made a silly observation about something that recently happenedor made a comment about a silly observation that you wrote about something that recently happened
you think that this is all a big joke, right?
a joke about what became of us humans?
well in every joke, there is a grain of truth
and the truth is that with all these (so called) great social services, we forgot something along the way
we forgot to take a break from time to time
a real break
a walk in the park or a vacation in the mountains can be so sweet
but if you keep taking your phone with you, you haven't really accomplished anything
you keep burdening your mind with all of those meaningless little things
meaningless. little. things.
a friend made a comment about your post
a friend shared a video with you
a friend invited you to a party
a friend liked your link
a friend checked in
a friend this
a friend that
for 30 secondsdon't do anything else, you can do it. really, you won't die. it's just 30 seconds
feels great, doesn't it?
i'm going to say goodbye soon
and let you get back to your notifications
but before that, i just want to give you some advice
from time to time
