  1. Too Much Internet

    One of my five resolutions for the new year is to only use the internet for one hour per day. I chose this because, for too many days since my school years, I lose myself in loading several different webpages in a nonstop consumption of media. I wondered if it was having an impact on my mental well-being, and after last night I think that's definitely the case. I've been saving the last two hours of the evening for some reading, writing or anything else that doesn't involve sitting in front of the computer. However, last night I fell into my old habit and, once I went to bed, I couldn't fall asleep as I was thinking too much about several different things. Not deep thoughts, but buzzwords in a sort of ethereal cloud, related to the news and videos I watched. I was even a bit anxious, because I couldn't turn off my thoughts and I couldn't conduct them to a conclusion. I know that this constant need for new input is happening to other people my age, it's why me and so many of us grab the smartphone without reason. I wonder if a similar issue of anxiety, or inability to fall asleep, is happening to others.
  2. Carpe Diem

    I never grasped the concept behind this expression. I think it means to focus on the present and give little thought to what may come after, but doesn't that compromise the idea of delayed gratification, which we're told to follow in order to achieve something meaningful in the future?
  3. Tattoos!

    It would also hinder you from working in a bookshop, because you would scan one product and the customer would have to pay for your favourite book too.
  4. The Last Film You Saw - 2017

    I watched Song to Song in the cinema, so I was able to follow the mood. I think I prefer the cinema to watch this type of slow, arthouse films, because I can't watch these movies at home in one sitting and there are other distractions. It's a good film; I didn't particularly enjoy it, but I felt satisfied in the end.
  5. Star Trek & Stargate (& other Sci-Fi)

    As I read Phillip K. Dick's book, I can't help but notice some images here resemble parts of its story that weren't in the first movie.
  6. Star Trek & Stargate (& other Sci-Fi)

    There's a full trailer for the new Blade Runner movie:
  7. What are you listening to?

    Late night for a bossa nova classic.
  8. Upgrade to New Version - Any Questions?

    Hi, I just want to say that I really like this new look, it's so clean and pleasant.
  9. What's Up in April 2017?

    You must have books in every wall, or a very big wall somewhere. I have some books as well, though not nearly as many.
  10. The Last Film You Saw - 2017

    At first I struggled with the film, because it was more focused on superficial questions by common people about philosophy, feminism and art in a way that I felt annoying. However, I kept watching and started to enjoy it once I knew the characters. I agree that Annette Bening had a good performance, I think her character was a bit complex; I also liked Greta Gerwig's performance.
  11. Hi everyone

    Welcome to the forum, Kafka.
  12. More football

    I'm still overwhelmed about last night's Barcelona win, it was outstanding. Those players showed immense character and never gave up when everyone would understand it. Has anyone else watched the match?
  13. What's Up in March 2017?

    This afternoon I had some time in the afternoon, and with no one to hang with I bought a book, which was Go Set a Watchman, by Harper Lee; I'm enjoying it, perhaps I'll read some more tonight. I also bought an ice cream, I think a little cheat doesn't hurt.
  14. The Gaming Box

    I played it for a bit in a store this afternoon and, although I didn't know the controls or the mechanics, I enjoyed it. I picked up from this snowy and wuthering area and escaped to greener fields, where there were some cabins. I couldn't interact with them, but I peeked through a door. Then I climbed a nearby waterfall and didn't feel like coming back down.
  15. Health and Fitness

    I'm glad things are going smoother, frankie.
