Guess I’ve found a new project for myself this month. I started it on Sunday, March 10th, though. I’m going to record my everyday life with my camera to see what difference it can bring me.
I feel like I’m so attached with everything else (such as my phone and all apps that are on it), I forget to focus on myself. You guys didn’t know that’s what social media or the Internet does to you, huh? Well, studies have shown that people get so caught up in their social media lives that they neglect their real world lives. People tend to be more depress focusing on the lives of others and not what they should be worrying about, that being themselves. I’ve notice that my mood is a bit different when I look on the computer and all I see is people on my news feed sharing depressing news, like they caught their boyfriend talking to someone else or they just hate their everyday jobs so much. I’m tired of seeing statuses like that everyday. But what I’m tired of the most is seeing what other people are doing. It’s so nosy. Humanity has become so nosy just snooping in other people’s lives. We have no sense of privacy. So my project for this month is to record myself so I can not focus on the lives of others, but focus on my life and what I do. All that I’m doing with my time is making home videos. As I’ve looked through my computer, I already used to do it when I was younger. I was quite happier, too.
This project is for my sanity. It’s to keep me from needing to know about everyone else. It’s the social media cure, I guess. At the end of the month I’ll check back in with everyone to let them know how I’m doing with it, whether to recommend my personal research to others or to completely tell everyone to disregard it. But I have a good feeling about it already. So I’m sure it will be somewhere in the middle.
