Today’s daily prompt is “Your Life Without A Computer”. Me without a computer would be very hard. I don’t go out to meet people, so I tend to stay inside. My computer is my way of interacting with other people. If I did not have it, then I would probably do some art – which I am really bad at, but I could learn.
Without the computer, I would not be able to make the friends I have. Although by the same token, I would not be able to hurt the people I have. Behind the computer, I can hide myself. Many people don’t know properly what I look like. What I sound like, and that’s the way it will stay.
Without the computer, I would interact less with people, so allowing them to get on with their daily lives ignorant of my existence. I do, sometimes, wish I had never gone online to start talking to people. At other times, I am glad I did.
Without the computer, I would never have started interacting with so many wonderful bloggers. “Why did you start then?” I hear some of you ask. It was a way of contacting people through email at first. Then through MySpace, MSN Messenger, Facebook, Bebo, learning from yahoo groups. Then the blogging. That became fun once people started reading my blog. It’s not always so fun now, but other days it is.
Maybe a break from blogging is what I need. See how I can do without the internet and computer.
Would you be able to cope without your computer?
