If you take the time to really think about it...how much time do we actually spend using our phones, lap tops, ipads, and etc? What would our lives really be like if we took the time to stay away from all this technology? It all makes sense now...why going to my family reunion was so much MORE enjoyable than I thought it'd be! I didn't have wifi, I had poor to no cell service. I was without the luxury of phones or lap tops. I spent my time instead with the family and the outdoors. All it took was three days and this video to really make me realize how much I am on the computer. How much I use my phone. I can hardly go a day without getting on the computer. 

I miss sitting in my room reading a good book. Since I got my lap top my book consuming has slowed down dramatically. I miss reading the books and 'stepping into a new world'. For the longest time I've been using my computer ALL THE TIME. Late into the nights and such. Although I'll try my hardest not to be on technology so much, I've been attached to the technology like a leech for the longest time. Can any of us really break the habit? I want to read again...I want to sit with my family and play board games again, I want to go outside and ride my bike again. I want to sit in my room and draw again. Although I will still be on my computer and phone quite a bit, I can at least take some time out of my day to just do something else with my life. I want to become a better artist, that's not going to happen with me hanging on my phone and lap top all the time. 

To be honest, it won't kill you not to use your phone, or your laptop, or any other device. I go camping all the time and I get none of that. It's really quite nice honestly.

So just take a day off, take a trip up somewhere nice with some friends. Some actual friends, where you can actually speak to one another. Where you can have fun and enjoy yourselves without playing games or x-boxes and such. 

There should be at least ONE day a week that there's just no phones, no lap tops, no x-box, no gaming systems, none of that! So we can get off our lazy butts and go do something.

Now don't get me wrong, when I say 'we' I don't mean everyone. I just mean me and the people who are always on their devices.

Take a step back.

Take the time to just take a break.

I love animals and nature in general! When I'm not camping though, or spending time with my pets. I'm off hanging with my friends and having a blast everytime. Or chillin with my family watching some show we all enjoy, sometimes going bowling and having picnics outside. Then there are the times when I'm alone. I'll be in my room. Reading, writing, drawing or more often than not. Role-playing. Often watching youtube! (My favorite Youtuber is Pewdiepie. He's hilarious and yes...a bit strange but who in this world isn't?)

I love my life and appreciate it so much. As well as everyone in it! The friends I make, the family I have. I've made such happy memories with them, that I will treasure and carry on until the end. Although Life isn't perfect....it's still amazing.
