I Declare April 1st: Digital Sabbatical Day
As the first day of April has largely come to be the day where nothing but jokes, fake press releases, preposterous rumors (or, at least, more preposterous than they are normally), expensively produced videos for products that will never exist by companies that kill real products to “focus”, and the infinite re-sharing-blogging-tweeting-plussing of such, I think it is high time that those who reject such foolishness and need to get real work done take this day back.
I say we make this first of April, and every first of April to come, the day where we take a digital sabbatical (at the very least, an online one). We use this day to take a break. Perhaps get an honest day’s work in. Maybe brush off that old notebook and sharpen that pencil and write out the things you’re going to get done tomorrow. If you are at work, perhaps this is a good day to clean your office. If at home, take the kids out to a museum. Perhaps this is the day to put on your favorite road songs, get in the car, pick a direction, and drive for a few hours and see where you end up. Because that place, no matter where it is, will be better than just about anything else you will see online today. I think you get the idea.
Because, well, it is already pretty difficult to sift the meaning from the noise from the constant connection. It is even more so when you have to question almost everything you see on it for a day. Life is short. There are better things to do. Ignore it today. It’ll still be here (and, hopefully, back to normal) tomorrow.
Who’s with me?
I’ve been trying to get back on my bike again these past few weeks after only riding a handful of times over the last 2 years. The bitterly cold weather doesn’t make it any easier. Shooting photos in those temperatures …
It’s been really cold for the last week or so which has made it really misty in the mornings where I live. I drive past this chap every day, and his feild looked awesome with the combination of the fog and the sun rising in the background …
Spending my saturday re-writing my markup and CSS because it’s currently a mess. It’s also raining outside so I can’t do what I wanted to do which was to go riding.
It’s been a while since I rode my bike - it’s been sitting in the garden getting rusty. I didn’t realise how unfit I was until I rode in London yesterday, and I’m certainly paying for it today. Riding yesterday has definitely reignited that spark …
Incase you haven’t seen, I’ve got a few new posts on my Journal.
I’m posting a lot more on my site now, so head over there for all the latest ramblings.
I’ll continue to post in-betweens on here, and anything from the blog that has some visuals. For all my writing though, go check out the Journal.
Hope all is well for all my followers!
There’s some updates over on my Journal.
I’ve been busy getting a new web project template set up and you can download it from GitHub here.
I’ve been trying to shoot photos a lot more, but now that I work full time as a Designer, it’s hard to make time for it outside the office. I still love it just as much as I did when I took my first photo, and I’d love to be able to shoot more, it’s just a little difficult lately. Hopefully I’ll be back into the regular swing of things soon. I just love Designing and coding lately!
My site also got featured on siteinspire which is awesome news.
Don’t forget to give me an email if you have any feedback, or want to collaborate on a small project.
