They wake up in the morning and look at their phone. They scroll through social media for a few hours and then get out of bed. They go to the kitchen and make themselves some breakfast, but they don’t really eat it. They just stare at it and then eventually throw it away. They sit down at their computer and start to work on some project or another, but they can’t focus. Their mind keeps wandering and they can’t seem to get anything done. They give up and start to watch TV, but they can’t concentrate on that either. They just keep scrolling through their phone or looking at pictures on the internet. They don’t really interact with other people, except for when they have to. They just go through the motions of life, but they don’t really feel alive.
Rascals are always sociable, and the chief sign that a man has any nobility in his character is the little pleasure he takes in others company. Arthur Schopenhauer
