Are you one of the virtual slaves these days? Well, I think in some ways I am; however, I do try my very best to avoid being so.
How can we say if one is already under the spell of the virtual magic? Basically,if you spend most of your waking moments in front of the gadget called computer then you're most likely a certified virtual slave. How so? Let me try to count the ways.
*You arrive at work -you're lucky if you're not late- and you let your co-workers feel your presence by saying a quick hello or greet them a good morning then off you go to your own desk or station to turn on your computer where you'll be stuck working your a** for the next eight hours or so -not counting the over times.
*The clock strikes five -or whatever time you're off work- you fight your way amidst the crowd who are all in a hurry to get home, brave the heavily congested roads doing your very best not to let loose of your temper,finally, you're home! You kiss and say hello to your love ones, you summarize your not-so-exciting day and ask them about their day too while having dinner. Then, it's time once again to sit in front of your most favorite human creation and discovery -the computer. You browse and surf forgetting the time, depriving your body of its much needed rest.
And so, is it worth it? I have to go find the answer myself. One thing I know and I do believe in is, once we are already forcing ourselves to do something, whatever it is, becomes synonymous to WORK.
Have fun and enjoy blogging everyone! ^_^
