Day 24:

I’ve sat in front of my computer screen for about ten minutes now, what to write, what to say….

What I really want to say is that I’m tired. I’m exhausted actually.

I hold my phone, write out a text, delete some of it, what to write, what to say…bite my nail, exhale. Fix this, George. Say something to make it all better. You’re a writer, you should be able to express yourself, you should be able to show it. A text message. A damn text message. Is this really what it’s coming down to? A text message that holds so much power, how I long for close proximity. Text-fighting. Text-goodnights. Texts that ruin my day. Really? A damn text message. This is all I have. All we have. What to write, what to say. And I wonder why the road has been rough. It’s probably because of the texting.

I remember back when I first got a phone, when I was a freshman in high school. It was one of those fat Nokia phones. I liked it. I didn’t really use it, ever, but I liked having something to carry. Something that was mine, something to put in the purse I got for my birthday. I probably sent about one text a week, to my friend across the classroom, I’d write it out under my desk–SO BORED. HAHA. 🙂

And now–text-relationships, text-make ups, text-break ups, text-get asked out on a date, text it all. Text to save relationships, to hold them together. Is it worth it, is it a good thing we are so easily connected in that way, is it really easier, is it a positive?

Is it even real?

    Good that you raise the question-so much has been lost with things being “easy”, with cold, hard, and impersonal electronics. The very nature of them distances people instead of welcoming them.
    Again, very thought provoking writing..keep it up!
