I thought I'd give everyone a (welcomed?) respite from my New York posts by posting a set of outfit photos. I like how the stripes sort of clash in this outfit, albeit subtly. Let's see, what else...
I feel like I have a lot of plans and goals for this blog, but sometimes I am just too busy to make them happen. Alternately, sometimes I fantasize about deleting all of my internet accounts just to unplug from the world. I feel like in this day and age, if you really want to live off the grid it's as easy as pressing the "deactivate" button.
In college, I studied communication with a mass media emphasis and because of this, I feel like I spend much more time than the average blogger mulling over the implications of having such wide internet network and being so plugged into every social media platform ever made. Of course, there are positives. You can interact with people all over the world, share ideas, share experiences that normally would not be possible, etc. That's cool. There is also a dark side, however. Utilizing this technology often means typing away at a keyboard (computer or cellular), by yourself, while time passes by. I can't tell you how many times I see people, who rather than be subject to (God forbid) sitting alone in public with nothing to do, have their noses pressed up against their cell phones, eyes downcast, brows furrowed, mouth agape while real world happenings rush on by. All I'm saying is that I think people should take their eyes off the screen and look around once in a while. But then of course, when this does happen, people quickly revert back to the internet in order to validate their experiences (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook Updates, etc. etc. etc.) and the cycle continues.
Not saying that I'm above all this because (clearly) I'm not, but these are the thoughts that run rampant through my brain and make me sigh.
What do you guys think?
