# 50 (2014) Bored Of Social Media

I have suddenly become very tired of social media in its entirety. It is no substitute for real people or the outside.

It whines and complains and reminds me how bad the world and everything in it is, and when I’m out and about, it robs me of conversation with human beings who sit across from me scrolling through their tweets, messages and news feeds. Eye contact is old.

I am spending less and less time on these platforms. There are days when I don’t even look or can’t even be bothered to switch on my phone (Sundays mostly). Anywhere that has no signal is a liberation.
