The Death of Spontaneity

A murder is committed every day; that much is proven by the newscasters everyday. But one murder which is also committed every single day and which is never broadcasted is the murder of spontaneity. This is an offence of which we will all be found guilty if tried in the court of law. I want to put forward just two arguments for now (Feel free to try and prove me wrong in the comments section).

  1. Plans are invitation to disappointment. I wonder why we don’t just seize the moment, seize the opportunity at once. How often is our happiness destroyed by preparation and planning? What we fail to realize is that the greatest memories are made in the most unlikely of places. For instance, if you have sex beside a dumpster, you’ll never forget it. This is further proof that spontaneity is more rewarding than a meticulously planned life.
  2. Technology is an accomplice to the crime. We cant jump off bridges anymore because our iPhones will get ruined (or stolen, if we decide to leave it behind). We cant skinny dip in the ocean because there’s no service on the beach. Also, adventures aren’t real unless they’re posted on Instagram or Snapchat for others to see. Technology has doomed the spontaneity of adventures and we’re helping to destroy it every time we Google, Check-in, upload and hashtag.

    This is really nice, Dolapo! I must admit I am guilty of the crime, murder of spontaneity, that is, but just in terms of Google. I do like planning things ahead, makes me anticipate them even more. This is the first time I’m visiting your blog (saw it on your WhatsApp status) and I must admit, it’s lovely! I love the name too, smallee. Fits you real good! Thumbs up!

      It’s not bad to plan. But y’know too much of everything is a bad thing. Planning every single aspect of your life takes away all the fun. You’ll agree with me that the most memorable things are somewhat if not entirely unplanned.
      And I’m glad you like it, dear

    The in the world today is now a public affair.u post a pic on IG everyone likes it dat wat makes u happy dat other appreciate the fun u had the pic helps preserve the memories abt that place u visited.for example, we blogger want to tell the world abt something and den we post it.why don’t we just go to our streets and host a tales at moonlight stuff. Dere we can also tell pple Wat we blog abt instead. So yes dere is death of spontaneity but something else has come to live.

      You’re right. Of course. But what I’m saying in essence is that we should learn to live off social media. Our lives shouldn’t depend on the validation we get from IG and all
