The worst has finally happened. For the past few days I suffered from a modern day syndrome called disconnect-ophobia. I don't know why but my landline is missing a dial tone, my cellphone is erratically giving me error messages, my internet connection is excruciatingly slow or nonexistent, and my mind is running low on sensory distractions. I guess this is the millenials' burden. Hyperconnectivity is already the norm and the lack thereof manifests a feeling of emptiness and inadequacy.
