Starting October 1st
I’m going on social media hiatus until either: 1.) I find a job 2.) it’s 2015. No facebook, no twitter, no tumblr, no instagram. I won’t even let myself check any of the homepages/ dashboards (though I will check on various blogs, I’m not that good haha). Wordpress will remain since I’m taking a class with my account and I should update my own site. I’ll probably get one of my siblings to change my password so I won’t get tempted. I’ll still get email notifications about messages and submissions but I can’t answer any anonymous ones unless you leave an email address, sorry.
The FOMO, the mindless scrolling, endless liking, my unhealthy and heavy attachment to affirmation and validation, the relentless urge to post… it has become too much. Probably has for awhile. And yeezus, I’m even overthinking this status.
I spend too much time on the internet and not enough time with “real” life. Overdue library books, procrastinating critiques and creative writing, unfinished projects, not enough sleep… this is not the me I want to be. Time to rectify.
See you space cowboy
