Bored with Media and Technology

Looking at staged photos of politicians, photo edited faces and bodies of celebrities, and other useless things on the Internet, I get bored.  It is just fruitless after awhile.  "What more do I need to see?" Usually the answer is, "You don't."  The Spirit within suggests, "Go do something else.  Get out a bit."

All the information, games, apps, videos, music, and more the Internet has to offer and yet one can still become bored.  Maybe the feeling shouldn't be described as boredom, but weariness.  All the stuff can be so draining on your emotions.

Media is boring when it isn't decorated up with fun photographs, charts, graphs, people wearing make up, and more.  I recall those times when news was simply a man talking, a corny backdrop and that was it.  My parents remember the times when shows were in black and white.  My late grandmother told me of times when radio was popular.  We all enjoyed times together before there were cell phones, home computers and laptops, gaming systems, microwaves, bagless vacuums, portable drinks that come in pouches, fax machines, and cable TV.  But we managed, there were plenty of other things to do like participate in outdoor activities, do chores, and talk to people whether you knew them or not.  We didn't waste nearly as much time as people do nowadays simply Internet surfing.  However, in time as more and more people bought television, VCRs and DVDs, the hours started to increase when it came to television watching.  This of course is still occurring with many of my elders sometimes from sun up to sun down watching TV.

Media has really evolved, but too much of anything isn't good.  There is only so much your eyes, fingers and neck can take.  I notice people have back, head, neck, and wrist issues because of all their media watching and working on portable devices.

Unanticipated boredom with media and technology is indeed a blessing in disguise.  It sends a message, "You have had enough, now go do something else."
