It’s ridiculous how disconnected I feel now that the Internet has taken over the world. I remember when my classmates and I would discuss the latest Ghost Fighter episode over recess. We’d talk about what we loved or hated about the new Britney Spears music video. MTV mattered during those days. I’m only 26 and I’m sure people who have been around longer have got it worse. The less bands there were, the more we could discuss. Now it’s “Have you listened to the new Helmets in Kentucky?” and I always say I don’t know that band (I just made up that band so don’t worry, you’re not a total loser). I’m very afraid of what’s happening. I’m easily distracted and just writing this paragraph is surprising to me. I usually don’t get anything done. I’d like to be braver than I’ve been lately. I feel like all these websites, reading materials, television shows are just so overwhelming. I want to read everything so I read nothing.

I keep over thinking, that I end up not thinking anymore. I really need to practice yoga more. Haha. I worry for my brain.

I’ll start small by braving the new stuff. Will try to leave the throwbacks for Thursdays. Check back daily for updates xx

    I’m 28 and I feel like I’m fortunate to have lived at a time when there were just “enough” things to absorb from the world, so it was easier to relate with people and talk about stuff without being overly paranoid of missing out on new things.
    I could only imagine how much pressure these young kids are going through, knowing that they have this (delusional) need to devour everything that pop culture throws at them.
    I admire your bravery. Go get em, tiger.

    Ramdam kita Saab! I have my sewing machine na ang tagal kong hinintay yet nakatali pa rin ako sa laptop and phone to search for more ideas. Overflowing ideas with no results at all. sigh

    I feel you! Siguro dahil we feel obliged to consume everything because, of course, we have immediate/unlimites access to almost everything na. Sadly, we get overwhelmed with all these information and we just end up lurking and soaking in a corner questioning everything instead of finding answers. Sad, but true, for me though.

    “I want to read everything so I read nothing.” The story of my own life in one sentence. LOL. Thanks Saab, you nailed it!!

    Ah, thank God I’m not the only one!
    I’m also 26 and damn, I already feel so overwhelmed most of the time these days…parang there’s so much to read, and watch, and listen to, and write about, and you want time to stretch but then again, you also just feel like screaming “STOPPPPPPPP!” kahit for a while. Everything is SO fast-paced these days, you feel obliged to catch up. Then, after a long day of work, parang your brain is so cloudy na that it’s soooo hard to concentrate. eek.
    We can do this.
