Social Media Addiction

Social media has been part of our lives for almost two decades. However like anything in life it can be abused. That abuse then becomes an addiction. I have to admit I have a love hate relationship with social media. It can be a source of entertainment or superficial connection with people. However, certain people are addicted to it in one way or another. Do you constantly make live videos on Facebook and Instagram? Do you head to your smartphone as soon as you wake up? Do you scroll endlessly down your Twitter timeline or Facebook timeline and lose track of time? Do you check your notifications every second it blows off? Do you say everything that is on your mind every day on Facebook? Do you have to snap all your day's events every day? Do you watch Youtube tutorials all day on your free time? Yeah, you have a problem you are addicted to social media. Remember there was life before Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Snapchat, Tumblr, etc Take time to socialize offline. Go to the gym and do not snap your workout. Lol. Create content for Youtube instead of consuming it. Cook that Thai recipe you have been holding off on. Take a walk in the park. There is more to life than social media. Get off the matrix and tune into 3D reality. This is all coming from a recovering social media addict. You will thank me later.

The Death of 9-5

We now live in a new shift of economy. The death of the 9-5, as I put it. There are now many ways to make an income outside a conventional job. The rise of Uber, TaskRabbit, Airbnb, Postmates and much more have created a new income generating system. Everyone seems to have a gig full time or part time. Freelancing seems to be the way to go. What does that mean for you? I believe it means more options to make a living. I have used this new concept to make an income myself. Have anyone freelanced or have an unconventional job such as Uber? What are the pros and cons? Do you think this will die out anytime soon? Is this the death of the 9-5?
