Today I ran out of battery power. Well not me as per say but my devices. Perhaps it’s a case of me failing to manage my device power levels appropriately. I can accept this is a failing of mine. Especially since my phone, tablet and wearing technology all were at less than 20% battery power at the same time.
Now having an energy crisis is not a small thing these days. Life is basically run off of and held within my devices, or so it seems. Thus I did, upon getting the low battery warning, rush to find outlets, Chargers and the likes. I was a girl on a mission to get that all taken care of.
Once my devices were all nicely tucked into power outlets I wondered what the real Rush was about. Would the world end if I let my phone die for a bit? Probably not. Would disaster for all mankind arrive if my tablet went dark? Well it might on account of the work I was doing was off my tablet. And in all fairness my tablet is what warned me it was running out of power.
I’ve let these things creep into my life to the point of dictating my responses which isn’t right. But here I am charging them and keeping an eye on them because they seem to control me or have control over me.
