I Been On

Color me mentally exhausted. It feels like my brain has been dipped in seasoned flour and deep fried. If I listen carefully I can hear it sizzle. 

I envy people that can easily turn their brain off and meditate. Seriously, how do you empty your mind and pause all thoughts? I've tried unplugging from the internet, turning the TV off, disconnecting the iPod and turning my iPhone on "Do Not Disturb" mode. But even with no distractions, my mind doesn't completely clear. It may sound simple to just chill, but this is something I really struggle with. 

Me: Mind, please power off.
Mind: But I been on. Tell me who gon' turn me off.

Something's got to shake. So I hereby challenge myself to NOT multi-task. Sit. Unwind. Enjoy silence. Brain, thank me later. 

Open Letter

I have a love-hate relationship with technology and social media. Privacy is not respected. Sharing is overrated and oftentimes TMI. Yet it is damn near impossible to live without online interaction. Le sigh deeply.
