The Earth Had Stopped Breathing

Translated…

No matter how many times I’d pressed down on the keys, there’s only darkness on the screen. Flipped open the papers, the world is poisoned, and, nobody escapes.

Airplanes, High-Speed Railways, MRTs, elevators, gaming software, blog, Facebook, weblogs, everything you can think of and imagine, in this age where everything IS controlled by computers, could not function at all. The world had stopped breathing.

This, is actually, really sad, because everything we do is TIED to the internet and technologies these days, and, if things got fried, like the connections on your computer can’t be established, or the lines are down, then, everything STOPS functioning.

Insecure without My Hi-Tech Devices

Is that, an A-D-D-I-C-T-I-O-N???  Of course it IS!!!

Insecure without my hi-tech devices, when I left without my PDA, my cell phone, my I-Pad, etc., etc., etc., because they’d become extensions of who I am, and, how can I sever myself away from the vital parts of who I am?

Insecure without my hi-tech devices, I know that that sounds like an addiction, but it is not, I know I can control this panic that’s slowly coming over me, when I don’t have my cell phone in my bags.  Insecure without my hi-tech devices, I’d fly into high panic mode, whenever I felt around in my pocket and couldn’t find my cell.

So, am I addicted?  I don’t think so, but, I need a second opinion here, can someone help me out with that???

Insecure about my hi-tech devices, I don’t know how I will cope, for a week (b/c that, is how long I’m in here for) without my cell phone, my flat screen, I’m basically, CUT off from the outside world here, and I KNOW I will have difficulties, adjusting.
