Seems like we’re trading physical interaction for digital satisfaction at an alarming rate.  People would rather converse on Twitter, Facebook, Skype, Tumblr, MiGente, MySpace and whatever other site has been used over the past 5 years.  Granted, I know it’s quite convenient to talk to/meet up with people you’d normally know nothing about, but is there a line to be drawn?  Network, build relationships, make money, laugh, but is all that worth the sacrifice of actually living?  Taking time to get to know yourself, love yourself, re-connect with nature, watch the birds fly, watch the ants crawl, breathe fresh air, appreciate the simple things life has always had to offer?  Sometimes the internet is literally "The Sims".  Nonsense flying everywhere, men and women tweeting with the scorn of a bride ditched at the altar.  It gets real fake out here.  For the record, no judgement or shade is being thrown, but c'mon.  I’m just offering up some food for thought.  If you catch yourself putting more energy into social media than your life off of it, you may want to reevaluate some things.

Be great, don’t be a ho and get that ass back to nature.
