Look Up! A Little Something About Social Media Addiction

“All you have to do is disconnect from the need to be heard and defined”. My favorite line in the attached video below so make sure you watch. This past weekend was about the 6th straight weekend I have practically disappeared from “The Net” despite having the latest and greatest gadget in my back pocket.
