Inconvenient truths

We live in a world where self-checkout is more painful than regular checkout, where Instagrammers risk their lives for the perfect pic, and where people hide behind their avatars to become trolls.

Sure, a quick google yields all the answers. But the price for the latest convention is reduced comprehension.

As soon as we hide, reduce contact, and take shortcuts on our pocket computers, we forget what it’s like to push through the experience.

The individual’s playground is convenient but more often insensitive, ignorant, and messy.
