Sooooooo, there I was on a Saturday evening. Cakes had gone to bed cos he woke up at 5am to head to the bakery. I was sitting there, watching TV and the episode of KUWTK where the Kardashians started their vacay in Thailand. In that episode, Kim was taking lots and lots of selfies while on vacay because she wanted to make a book of selfies for Kanye (well, it turns out it was also for the whole world too, because the book's on sale :p).
Anyways, Khloe points out that instead of paying attention to the experience, Kim is busy taking selfies and missing out on just enjoying everything that's happening. And that's why Khloe's usually my fave Kardashian - because she has sense (except for that whole French Montana thing).
I've gone out sometimes and been busy taking photos of myself or the outing (I once wrote a post on How to Take a Great Selfie btw), that I find afterwards that I didn't really immerse myself in the experience. Instead of simply enjoying myself, I was more worried about taking great pictures, fiddling with the camera or phone to make sure the settings were good, checking the photos already taken, retaking those photos from different angles, and so on. Don't get me wrong. Yes, having photos is a great way of capturing memories and helps you share where you've been with others. But sometimes, we need to put the phones and cameras down, and just soak up the atmosphere, the ambiance, the friendship, the food, the show, the sights... you get the idea.
I usually don't like Fox News, but there's a great article about this exact topic.
I won't even touch on people taking selfies during church, at funerals, and other inappropriate times/venues.
Thanks for reading! Gotta go take another selfie :)
