I have been bored with technology lately. The phones they are trying to get us to buy eat up more time and memory just so we can have “access to the world” information, Satellites actually give literally ANYONE access to where you are located at any time, and people can track you whither or not your phone is turned on. Facebook (I have heard) is planning to force people to give out information whither we want it or not, and are planning to make us pay for the privilege of keeping in touch with our families. I find TV filled with stupidity and lies. We are tied to our homes by tech, as well as our cars which are getting close to thinking for us as well. I made the comment to a friend that we should drop all the tech and go back to nature by going off the grid. He said we/I would never make it a day. I tend to beg to differ. I feel the only thing I would miss would be my music and keeping in touch with family and friends, but I have been without a TV since 2005 and have found it refreshing since 90% of TV are scripted reality shows, bleeding heart liberals who what us to cry at everything and give what money we have earned to those who refuse to work, or politicians. I do like my DVD’s, but if I go off grid, I would not have electricity for either that, radio, cds or computer. Funny thing, those I do not consider priority. Sooooo, who else could think they could make it without tech hanging over their heads or chaining them to their homes, cars etc.?
I am going through a time when I need to change something. Either mentally, physically or what I do. When I get this way and can not change my outward appearance, I get restless and frustrated until I find something which will bring about a change, either mental, physical or what have you. Currently I am still in a place where I can not wear the gutsy styles of clothes I happen to like, and my hair is too short to change styles every few days. I did change my hair color from silver white to a reddish brown. And that was done only because some older lady asked if I wanted a credit card which gave discounts to those over the age of 65! Honey, I have over 10 years before I am anywhere near that age and I would still feel insulted of someone asked! To date, I have been sketching wardrobe ideas which I like yet currently can not wear since most of those clothes are made for twiggy style Asians! But, as I said, until I find some style which suits my unconventional sense of style and image I will continue to be frustrated and antsy. And I will continue to have bad days whenever this mood strikes me!
