365 days Writing Prompt: Do not Disturb

How do you manage your online privacy? Are there certain things you won’t post in certain places? Information you’ll never share online?Or do you assume information about you is accessible anyway?

I maintain my privacy by not writing too much about myself,I stick to the bare minimum. One must always be cautious about writing things about themselves in very public places. 

While we are moving ahead in technology, and it is a good thing but in some cases it might jeopardize our privacy by things that are too easy to find. Identity theft is one of the main causes of fear, why must anyone make it easy for those who are there to cause you damage.

My experience with solar eclipse. I was in the lower grades.  One day we found out, we’d have solar eclipse.  I was thrilled I’d see it. It  happened sometime during the day. My classmate saw it first. She called me to see it. I was happy I’d get the chance.

I was hooked I kept looking at it.  It looked so different and interesting. I  spent a long time looking at it. I wasn’t warned not to look at it directly.

I remember my father came home and said ,  ‘you shouldn’t look directly at the sun, it can cause permanent eye damage or blindness’. I was worried, I’d already spent a long time. I was afraid I couldn’t tell my father.

Next day I noticed everything was blurry. I knew I’d looked directly at the sun too long. What could I do,I thought I was  already blind .Next few days were horrific.  I told myself   if somehow I started seeing clearly. I’d never repeat this.

It took probably a week before I saw clearly. I’d learned a huge lesson first hand. When I think of that now, I feel I am very lucky my eyes were not permanently damaged.
