I'm not sure if it's just me, but I'm starting to think about how much time I sit on my laptop on a day to day basis. Fair enough, a good amount of this time is because I'm doing work of some sort, but I've often found myself sat reblogging things on Tumblr or Pinterest recently and thinking why am I spending so much of my time doing this?
Don't get me wrong, I don't think there's anything wrong with these websites. Tumblr and Pinterest really inspire me at times and if anything spur me on to go outside and make memories, but lure me to stay in and keep scrolling at the same time.
I think I'm suddenly becoming aware that soon I'll (hopefully) be in a full time job and not have as much free time as I have had in the past to do things. There's so much I want to see and do. Essentially I don't want to waste my life reblogging pictures I won't remember in a years time let alone sixty and never see or experience any of those things for myself.
As the '90's kids' generation, we say how much we appreciate the fact we were the last generation to have our childhood uninterrupted by technology and wish children now had the childhood we did. Yet we write this on online platforms which many of us agree to spending too much time on, wasting part of our youth in the process.
What about you guys, do you actively seek out these memories or do you also get drawn in by the internet?
What have you done recently that you know you'll remember for most of your life?
