After being inspired by the lovely Katie, I decided to delete all social media from my phone. Now it may seem like I'm only going halfway, but this is huge for me. You see, I'm an addict. I thought it was just a hobby at first. But a hobby is something you do for pleasure and relaxation, not something you need. And lately, need is the word I'd use to describe my social media habit.
I have to know what's happening around me. Whether it's my Facebook timeline or my Twitter feed, I have to read everything. I start from the top and scroll down and down and down until I get to wherever it was I left off whether it was fifteen minutes or fifteen hours ago.
In any case, Sunday at 11:45 I deleted Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram from my phone. I then realized I had nothing to do to put me to sleep so I had to roll over, close my eyes and do it the old fashioned way. Then, when I woke up, I had nothing to do to help wake me up in bed. Told ya I was addicted.
There have been sooooo many more pathetic occasions, but I leave my pity for myself. But I am surviving and it is getting better
Oh and it's almost 60 degrees in Ohio today! Big news (cough cough Tamara) and warm (?) weather makes me a happy girl. No more downed parka for this girl! It's all northface jacket for two days...until it's in the teens again by Friday. Rude, Mother Nature. Just rude.
