Ping Pong Affair


We pay continuous partial attention in an effort NOT TO MISS ANYTHING. It is an always-on, anywhere, anytime, any place behavior that involves an artificial sense of constant crisis.

Or maybe it’s just a symptom of being in your 20’s in the 21st Century. I don’t know; I didn’t even finish reading the article.
