I love when I feel challenged by an online friend to stop obsessing over something I feel like I can't breathe without. (Except not. I mean, who likes acknowledging something they do more than they should?)
Social networks are my addiction. (Along with my tv schedule, I admit.) I always joke that I'm more exciting on the Internet. But seriously. I remember loving AOL as soon as we had it, dial-up and all! Then, in 2004, I found MySpace. Just thinking about it puts hearts in my eyes!
Since then, I've joined nearly every major social network. Facebook. Twitter. Instagram. You get the picture. Once I got a smartphone, I've been practically inseparable from my online life (see picture of my phone screen below). Until now. Literally today.
I saw Lara Casey's status about looking forward to another social media free weekend. (the thought could send me into meltdown mode.) I read blogs that she had posted and thought, "If not now, when? I have to try."
So, this weekend, I'm going to try to stay off social networks Saturday and Sunday. Technically, I have a three day weekend, but don't get crazy! I have to start somewhere.
Attaching the pages of my journal where I convinced myself to do it. Please share my lols.
In the words of Kim Possible, if you need me this weekend, call me, beep me, if you wanna reach me.
