Bring Brain Juice Back

While randomly clicking links in Wikipedia, I came across this quote. Something Harper Lee wrote to Oprah:

"Now, 75 years later in an abundant society where people have laptops, cell phones, iPods and minds like empty rooms, I still plod along with books.”

That quote stung.

I think I'm becoming those minds like empty rooms.

There is a very tall stack of unread books in my room and yet facebook, twitter and instagram still controlled my daily activities.

I rarely read nowadays, which my father had repeatedly raised his concerns. My father even told me to stick my phone on my forehead since I keep looking at it too much. -____-”

It seems so hard to disengage myself from this bad habit.

But I will try.

Because it's so scary to see how social networking is taking over everybody. And me. People reveal too much info these days.

I want to read again, and write too. I want my brain juice back.

Wish me luck!
