From pens and pencils to PCs and procrastinating!

Standard

I love writing with pretty pens or pencils. Sadly, all I seem to do lately is type on a computer. I wish I could go back to the days when I was only using pen and paper. It has a special magic to it.

I have tons of paper notebooks and pencils and pens and crayons etc. but I hardly use them nowadays, only when I’m tutoring (for those who don’t know, I am a private tutor of English as a foreign language). I don’t like using computer when explaining things to a student.

But let’s get to the beginning.

When I was a child, I quite enjoyed writing notes and little stories. Whenever I saw a nice pen or pencil in a shop, I begged my parents to buy it for me. That’s how I ended with a small suitcase like this¬†full of pens, pencils and paper notebooks. Also, I had similar set of pens like this.

I got my first OWN computer when I was 18 years old. Until then, I shared a PC with my brother, who played games on it constantly, so instead I read books. I feel like I didn’t miss out on anything. On the contrary, I think kids nowadays are missing out on things because they sit in front of a PC screen and play games.

Getting my own computer was a big asset for me, but at the same time it got me away from reading, writing and spending time actively. I’m trying to get away from all the social media and other time killers – I’m spending too much time on these sites.

Pomodoro timer is helping!

Then suddenly vlogging came into life and in my humble opinion, I think it’s slowly pushing TV away, at least for me.

I don’t follow that many vlogs, but those I do, I follow religiously.

Let’s look at 3 top book channels of English speaking channels/vloggers I’m following!
