I’ve loved monologues since studying Shakespeare’s Richard III. So, in a complete change of pace from my usual articles and segments, I have tried my (completely amateur) hand at my own monologue.
So what topic did I choose for my performance art? Looking around me in my room, it was pretty damn obvious – my predilection for all thing tech.

And interestingly, some of the comments I’ve received on the video have been people who either can identify with my thoughts, or know someone who “needs help”. Maybe you know someone like this yourself?
With no further delay, here is my performance piece, entitled, appropriately, “Confessions of a Gadget Addict”.
