Edit: I have no idea why I've suddenly a constant stream of higher visitors after being miserly and abandoning my DA essentially post-the-following-journal.... --but I appreciate the visits and thank you much! I'm not doing much here at the moment since it was lonely here, but I will eventually get to any notes throughout the year if you have any questions and feel like sending any. Thank you kindly!
"To hell with you. To hell with you and to hell with the Internet! It's distracting..."
Extreme in his refusal towards the advancing digital age, Ray Bradbury later (slightly) acquiesced and opened a website--but still remarked that ''I find it amusing that I’m on the Internet now, because I’ve criticized it, but mainly I’ve criticized it on the basis of ‘what are you going to do with it?"
Yes. What exactly am I doing with this thing? I've come to realize that with any electronic piece, I've used it to be with people because I love interactions with people. I'll play video games if other people are involved--because I love being with people. Or sit and watch a movie in a theater for the companionship or watch a TV show if others are interested to just be with people
. I've realized that's my main motivation for things that I do. Spend hours drinking espresso twice a day to be with people? Check. Go to a club even though there are tons of bodies to be with someone? Check. Travel half the world to find a person of interest? Check. I do things for the relationships and I think it'd be fair to say that most of us kind of do that. Where are our friends? We are there.
Solo, I've got no passion for browsing the internet (I check literally the same 8 or 9 sites). I don't have a smart phone or instagram or twitter or an instant messenger. Could care less about Snapchat and find myself bored with the pathetic excuse of a Tumblr I have and the deplorable attempt at starting a blog. Have a facebook--but people!
(Even that feels too "quick" for me sometimes). So I think its about time for me to acknowledge that I don't care
to be very active on here because I don't talk to anyone here anymore. Just not cool that way. Probably won't put stories up online, probably won't start comics online. (I've found I reserve that after I feel close to people--!) Long story short, with little interactions online, I'm bored with 'online'. My circle has floated elsewhere to friend's houses, the university or inside cafes and orchestras. So maybe later--not now. Not enough interest! I'll post a thing here or there so that I don't lose it in my computer somewhere and who knows maybe it'll get conversations going and I'll plop on again. For now I'm going where the people I know go. Keep peace-trucking and talk to whatever people you have around you in whatever fashions works for you. I'm pretty confident its our relationships that makes life a hoot!“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art.... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”
