This is my worst fear.
I crave authenticity in every aspect of my life. That's why entering the journalism field is scary to me. It's a digital future. We're progressively living more and more in front of lit-up screens. You can't be successful in this world without spending significant amounts of time with your computer and phone.
I want my life to be dynamic, engaging, fulfilling, challenging, and genuine. Those words don't seem to describe life on a desktop. I just don't see interaction online as authentic. Emails and instant messaging... those things should be supplements to the "real thing" of face-to-face encounters.
I know I've been harping on this the past few days, but these thoughts are haunting me and I don't know what to do about it.
