I've been working at making life simpler, then harder, then simpler again.
I gave up on social media for a month. Did not really change much in my life. True, I am not in "contact" with as many people as often. (Those "facebook friends" that you have not seen since highschool.) Not a great loss.
I did not really blog. Someone had to have noticed. I think it was my Dad. Because of this I also did not spend as much time on the internet "researching" things. Maybe I was a bit more boring of a person.
I tried not to play on my phone when in the room with other people. This was probably the worst effect. I was not playing games on my phone, but everyone else was. So I was just sitting there trying to make conversation with people too busy flinging birds at pigs.
What this did do however, was make everything on my phone harder to use.
This is why and how I became a Socially Awkward Penguin.
Turns out if you do not have a facebook account, you pretty much do not exist and signing into THE INTERNET is near impossible.
So much for all that.
I posted all this to say.
I get a new phone today.
Maybe I'm back online.
