New Technology, Same Old People

I’m going away for a week,
I’ll be out of contact,

You not taking your visor?
โ€ฆBut how will you know what to buy and who to avoid?
And what about your fitness and location stats?

If you get caughtโ€ฆ

Nah, I’m only taking a smartphoneโ€” for emergencies,
And I’m leaving my visor installed on a sim-head,

Wow, you really are going back to the dark ages,
I literally couldn’t survive 24 hours without my iViz!

It gets a bit overwhelming being connected all the time,
I find it’s good to detox every once in a while,

You sure about that??

โ€ฆWhat do you mean?

Your pulse has gone up by 20 beats over the last few mins,
Pupil dilation and perspiration both up,
โ€ฆAnd your amiability rating is down a few percentage points,
โ€”You’re a hot mess!

Yeah, well,
You’re getting on my nerves.

Ok boomer.

      1. Only to me, perhaps ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Yeah, it’s not easy this time of year that’s for sure. Hopefully you’ve had some time to rest and reset.

        All OK with me I guess. Worked all through Xmas and working all through New Year too so that gave me something to focus on versus drowning in all the other stuff ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค

      2. Hahaha ๐Ÿ˜‰. Alas I didn’t let myself relax, that’s been the battle. I’m just getting onto this stuff with the therapist now, now that I’ve set enough of the context. So actually going through the OCD stuff in detail will be really helpful. My life has been so chaotic it takes so long to explain the first thing ๐Ÿ˜†.

        I LOVE this time of year, the coldness, and I’m struggling to experience it. Right now though in this moment I finally feel somewhat centred and allowing myself to experience things fully. So I’ll run with it and try to maintain this feeling/state again.

        Oh cool, glad you were able to work through it all ๐Ÿ˜„. That’s definitely a healthy way to get through christmas. Glad you’re relatively ok ๐Ÿ™‚.

        I’m going to continue with writing creatively. ๐Ÿ’™

      3. Sounds like a good plan Robin.
        I’m so glad that you’re able to work through things with your therapist.

        Relationships can sometimes tale a while to build but when they do the rewards can be immense.

        I love this time of year – at least externally – too. I am cold at heart after all ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Look forward to seeing what you come up with creatively in the new year and wishing you all the best
