Look Inside Your Selfie.

The problem with technology is that it sometimes makes you feel inferior. You see things you *think* you want (and what others always seem to have)– these things can be as simple as a cute new top or as major as a new career.

However, I notice that it can riddle you with fears and anxieties about not living a life that is fulfilling enough …But whose standards are these? Are they our own? Or were they only created because technology exists? 

Why does technology have such a strong hold over us? One so strong that it is able to make us doubt ourselves and the decisions we once made in confidence? 

If we weren’t constantly being inundated with posts and pictures and party invites would we be able to just sit back and enjoy ourselves? 

Olita Del Altamar- Café Tacvba

So proud that Latin American music is making such big waves in the U.S.. I love my heritage. ¡Viva Perú!
