Look, see that millennial sitting on the couch, scrolling through Twitter retweets and Facebook likes? Well, that's me (or at least the digitized version of myself) and I just decided I'm going to put the ole smartphone down for a day to take a break from social media.
As soon as I "unplugged," I started thinking about all the activities I could do, now that I was unchained from the jail that is social media.
I decided, "Before my life was engulfed by comments and favorites, I used to like to draw." So I went back to a hobby long forgotten, put on the back shelf by the digital me.
I forgot how good I was. These are some good drawings, for a millennial.
I don't think any millennial could have predicted what was about to happened next...
My drawings came to life!
Art encompassed me as I felt the instant gratification, something us millennials need, for actually living life! I then thought "What to do next." I had already become God in such a short period of time since turning down the demon of Virtual Communications. Creating life felt amazing, so naturally, I went on to do more things that could simulate the feeling of being an almighty force...
So I smoked crack out of a Dr. Pepper can with Puffin and Mr. Seal.
Good stuff. This is living life. Take note, Generation Z.
Without the restriction of 140 characters, I was INVINCIBLE! Until the cops showed up.
I'm the King.
Sometimes I fear us millennial's are too caught up on our digital lives that we often forget to live real life. I think this experiment proved that we, especially millennials, are all better off without social media at times. If nothing else, what I personally learned from the experience, the life outlook it gave me, is that crack is fucking great.
