The Daily Prompt asks: Your life without a computer: what does it look like?
No computer? You can never go back, my friends. My computer does not just function as a computer with writing programs and photo editing programs- it connects me to the outside world by allowing me to access the Internet. No computer=no internet, and that would be a problem. No Google to get immediate answers to everything and anything you need to know? No Facebook to stay connected with the 600 childhood friends you thought you would never see again, let alone know almost every intimate detail of their life from the time you lost touch up until the present? Not knowing what everyone ate for dinner because they just had to post that perfect plate of mashed potatoes? No place to upload the thousands of photos I have taken?
I suppose life without a computer would mean more reading books and magazines, playing games, taking time to sit down and play the piano or guitar. More walks than I take already, a cleaner house as I wouldn’t have the distraction keeping me from the dust.
Life was simpler before we had technology at our fingertips. We played outside and used our imaginations, talked endlessly with our friends and had hobbies that kept us busy. A different time in a different world. There is no going back- just looking back and being happy for whatever the experience then was.
