It was just another day. I was using my smartphone as usual and suddenly I realized something, that the e-mail notification which made me put my meal aside was not worth it.

Later that night I checked my inbox again, there were several e-mails; mostly subscriptions, alerts, updates etc. which I never read beyond its subject line. Then I started to think about this whole situation, Whenever someone asks me “What are your weaknesses?” my reply is “I get distracted very easily” and no one understands my weakness - but I do get some laughs.

Why do I check my phone now and then ? Sometimes even when there is no notification, no vibration, no ringtone, … nothing. Just me unlocking my phone, swiping left and right and putting it back inside my pocket. …
