When my tech life feels organized, for some reason, I do too. And it’s weirding me out a little.
I suppose it’s a little like when you clean your desk or your
completely overflowing, disaster of a closet. If the space around you is all neat and tidy, with everything in its place, your life seems more, I don’t know… In order? Under control?
Even when it’s totally not, but it’s cool because at least your apps are filed in those little app folders and you’ve organized AND replied to every one of your emails (might as well retire in triumph now, right?)
The other night, midst feeling like I had no time for real life and the emails in my inbox were spiraling out of control, I
procrastinated got completely distracted and ended up downloading all of these new life-improving apps. Healthy Easy Recipes! DailyYoga! GiveGab!
Then, suddenly, a calm. My life (phone?) is now in order, finally. And I can’t help but think, is this a way of lying to ourselves? Or even another step towards the virtual, from reality?
Anyone else feel the same?!
(Or am I just crazy?)
