O' Be Joyful.
Once again this week, a two-year-old clip of a man in California nearly walking into a full grown bear because he was too busy texting, has gone viral. While it may be an oldie, it's still a much-needed reminder of how much stuff we often miss while we're fixated on our phones.
That in mind, maybe it'd be a good idea if we all tried to pay less attention to our mobile devices, and more to what the city has to offer this week. Unless, that is, you're reading this on your phone right now, in which case, you should totally carry on.
