Truth Tuesday [#4]

I didn’t blog at all last week because I had the week off, and I do
not have internet at home!  Crazy? Uhm, maybe for some… I haven’t had internet or cable for a year now! And I LOVE it! I feel like this era is all about technology, and these giants are “enforcing” (more like brain-washing)  people into believing that they need to have all these fancy gadgets for everyday (24/7) purposes of life. They are trying SO HARD to place these items into our daily routines, that soon it’ll be “normal.” Like school, I don’t  understand why you have to have a laptop/ipad to take notes on. Good old pen and paper for me, please. 

How do you feel about technology and its purpose (if any) in daily life?

    Sometimes I feel so frustrated because everything is up to technology… But laptop and internet is so strong part of my day nowadays, I can’t fight against it anymore 😀

    OMGosh! I was just venting about this on Twitter…(kind of, lol) but I have been in the same boat. My beau has been getting onto me about how addicted I am to my phone(and all the gadgets with it like Twitter, Blogger, FB, Words with friends…etc). I need to take an internet vacation soon. This is definitely the TRUTH.

    I didn’t have cable for years, its funny cause people talk about shows from 2002-2006 and i dont know what theyre talking about! Ya sabes como me siento sobre facebook. I think its very strange that just because you went to high school with someone, or your paths crossed once in life, that it gives them a window into your life. I didn’t like how people were replacing regular communication with it. Like people would try and make plans with me on my wall! I got rid of it and now just have my bloggy, tweety, and email. Thats enough. Blogging is for fellow bloggers, not creeps I knew in high school. And this is my truth mujer.

    wow. that is very brave of you to uphold your world without internet at home, and even though there is a comical appeal to even saying that– our dependency on the internet and social media is as vital to some as food and water. As I read this, I couldn’t help but think of how much I rely on the internet to function on a day to day basis. Hence, what you are doing is brave and cool! I commend you. xo

    Thanks for the heads up on the giveaways. 🙂 Also… about not having internet at home. My hubby & I haven’t had it for the last 2 years BUT we’re going to finally give in for work. We were just fine w/o it. We do NOT have cable… don’t plan on it either.

    I totally agree with you. People sometimes laugh because I’m hi-tech illiterate, but its never really been my thing. And those books that you read by using those lil’ comp things…. no thanks! Give me a book from a bookstore please. Btw, your blog is great! I’ve always loved that quote about style that you have up there. I am now following 🙂
