The technological generation is really getting to us huh?
Have you every sat back and thought about it? Like when the power is off? Have you ever just been sitting and thought... 'Well I'll just go make myself a cup of coffee'... or 'Let's put the laptop on charge'... or 'What am I gonna eat now?'...
Strange how reliable we've become to electricity and technology. Sometimes I wish I could just go live in the middle of nowhere where you don't have technology and issues. Where you have to kind of fend for yourself. I guess that's why I enjoy going to the farm so much... even though there IS power and technology, there's hardly any cellphone reception so ppl are forced to leave you alone. There is no DSTV, but there is a huge collection of VHS (yes!) videos and dvd's to choose from. Only for the cold nights though. When it's warm we're outside by the bonfire.
When I drive the 65km to the farm, I leave my worries behind piece by piece. Bit by horrible bit. Then I can relax. Shitty thing is... when I drive back the worries just jump right back on the band wagon! Ugh!
Why did technology take over so completely? I think I'm pretty clueless when it comes to the global technological hype (did I just make up a word?)... like Twitter! Yes okay okay be shocked and when you're ready come back... I know what it is, I just don't know how it works or how to join it. Is it from your cellphone? Direct from the internet? WHAT?! And that's just minor I guess.. there are so many things out there that would make me go "WTF?!?!".
Gadgets. Gizmos. Things on the internet. Shows. Movies. Toys.
IS this just me?? Don't think I'm complaining though. I, too, love technology and gadgets and gizmos etc... sometimes it just seems a bit intimidating. And I find it a tad bit sad that not a lot of ppl would be able to survive in the wild. Not even remotely...
