Generally the first thing I greet in the morning, is something digital. My cell phone. I would not know how to go back to using a buzzing alarm
I get up and head usually for my kettle. I suppose I would have to worry about boiling water on the stove if I did not have this gadget. After making sure I have my digital items, I head off to work. Without digital features I suppose I would have to walk or ride on a bicycle to work. I would get to work and climb onto a type writer to do my work and log my costing manually.
I would be sending smoke signals versus making calls and whistle whilst I work versus listen to the radio. I would go home and cook on a fire, and spend my life reading and play piano, and I would have to learn to read music so I could right my music down versus record it on my computer. I would walk with a candle to bed and set my alarm with its annoying bell.
I would wear a pretentious dress to balls versus going to clubs and I suppose play a lot more sport. I would go to theatre more and socialise with people more face to face versus on social networks. Perhaps a life less digital is a challenge I should embrace.
One thing is for sure, cutting down on my digital life will help me achieve two things – weight loss and I could study more. But I will be honest, I love my digital life too much for such silly things, and will use the digital equipment at gym that makes me happy.
