How gadgets affects your life?
For me, I have three gadget: computer, laptop, and mobile phone. I always writing and watching in my computer and I use my laptop when I want to write outside. My mobile phone? I do everything with this gadget. To calling somebody, send message, do financial things, check my social media, browsing, get some jobs *since I am a freelancer*, check my emails, taking photo, and sometimes write notes. So when mbak Jo give BEC member challange about gadget-fasting, I can’t do that.
I know, lately I kinda addicted with my mobile phone. It is make your life easier. When I wake up, the first thing I did was checking my phone, before I went to sleep I checking again everything in my mobile phone. I can’t waiting when my phone ringing and see who send me message. I played a lot of games in my mobile phone.
Until I am tired of it. I felt that my quality time with other people decrease because of mobile phone. Last years, I wrote about mobile phone and how that effect my relationship. I don’t like when I am talking, my friends busy with his or her phone. I am thinking that it is not polite. Even sometimes, I still do that
*toyor diri sendiri*. Another think that
But I can’t put away my mobile phone and live without it. All I can do is to manage it. This three days, I tried to manage again my time with my mobile phone. I tried not to open my whats app application every time there are notification from group. I just check my group conversation in the morning and evening. When I met my friends, I put my mobile phone at the bag and check it after that meet up. I also decreased my activities in path and instagram. This few months I quite active in this two application and curcol. But now, I try to share what I really want to share and not only when I sad or angry. Another thing that I did was put down my mobile phone when I need to concentrate in my assignment.
What happen when I tried to manage using my mobile phone? I feel life 😆
I can feel the wind when I am sitting in angkot and looking for the street and people around it. I can finished reading novel, writing what I am thinking in my journal, have a quality talk with my friends and family, and concentrate to finished what I should finished: my assignment.
