Dropout from WhatsApp education academy


I’ve dropped out of regular learning
From WhatsApp Education Academy
I will now be dabbler, an occasional
Visitor, an irregular scholar
I have decided to manage my own
consumption of information

Away from device dependency,
I will regain my ability to remember
and store memories, and give myself
more time for contemplation,
time-in-nature, reading books and
face-to-face social interaction

I will pay attention to my dwindling
attention span and recover my
short-term, long-term, episodic,
procedural and semantic memory

I will increase my brainpower and
elevate my mind
And spurn incapacitating deficits
of cognition – like dwindling memory,
anxiety and depression

I will raise my levels of awareness
of my surroundings and the emerging
crisis of our environment and
our minds, and become more humane

I will immerse myself in, and remain
in the present, and nurture my senses
of sight, sound, smell and touch.
And I will be receptive to reasoning,
creativity, compassion and wisdom

Away from the WhatsApp Education
Academy, I will challenge and
enhance my healthy brain and
negate the decline in my
‘creative thinking’ and ‘empathetic
concern’ and increase my
understanding, perceptivity,
Sensitivity and imagination
