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!
