Connectivity issues


Well, this is embarrassing. Last time I posted on this blog was in January. It’s not that I don’t have ideas. I have lots of ideas I want to write about but I never find the time.(“cough”) That’s a lie. I use my time on other matters. Like social media or Netflix for example.

I admit I have a love-hate relationship with my smartphone and social media. On one hand I love how useful they can be to reach out to people and stay connected. On the other hand I hate how much time I waste on it. Because the thing is that you are always connected so people can reach out to you any time, literally, ANY time. And the other way around. This stresses me out. My FOMO* is big, guys, very big.

Although I like to know what’s going on I don’t like being a servant of technology. People say is all about self control but I feel this is a dangerous addiction not easy to cure. I installed an app on my phone that tells me how many hours a day I spend on it and which apps I use the most. The average time I use my phone is between 1.5 & 3 hours a day, screen unlock around a 100 times a day and app frequency more or less 180 times a day. That’s not “bueno”. I know. I also realised that every time I spend a couple of hours away from my phone or a day away from social media I feel very happy and peaceful.

That’s why I decided that I need a change. I need to turn things around and convert social media and technology into my servants to help me be more creative. So I will start the #animationMondays challenge**.Every Monday I will post a short animation on social media until Christmas (for now). I want this to help me improve my animation skills and to hold me accountable for animating more.You can follow me on Vine, Twitter & Instagram.

Thanks for reading and feel free to comment. I love your comments. Write to me baby 😉 Have a wonderful week 🙂

One thought on “Connectivity issues

  1. Interesting point of view Anna! I often find myself in the same positing. I think it is a matter of routine, once you include writing into you daily habits, it will not be anymore something you have to think about, so your mind is gonna be, in some sort of way, more available to focus on other things. At least, this is how it works to me. Good luck and keep posting 😀
