Well, besides Facebook, but we all knew that.
I burned out hard on blogging. Everything else seemed more interesting. And I mean everything. That includes exercise and watching all nine season of Roseanne.
Who knew it would be impossible to sustain a comical rage for over two years?
So I took an unexpected break. A break that took way too long. Here’s a few things I did while on my break.
- Watch all the seasons of a lot of crappy television from the 90s.
- Worked at my job that pays the bills.
- Started exercising.
- Discovered that my kitty likes to sleep under the covers.
- Gave up caffeine.
- Started sleeping like a normal person.
- Complained that I had nothing to do.
And once I started complaining that I had nothing to do, I knew something was wrong.
Then I went to an event. An event where I was the snarky jerk in the corner with my friends, complaining about every last detail. When they laughed, I remembered what I needed to do.
If someone doesn’t call out how perverted our socially connect internet is, then we’ve already lost.
I’m still not there 100% yet. There are things I’d rather be doing, like eating pizza, playing video games, and cuddling my kitty. Hell, I’d even prefer to exercise.
I’d rather be living my life off the screen, rather than playing up my every moment as another reason thousands of loosely connected people need to know why I am more awesome than you. I dot want to create digital memories that will be lost in a sea of data for some marketer to sell me some crap that was made in a Chinese sweatshop.
But, I’ve still got a bone to pick. And a cat video to upload. And a wedding to plan on Pinterest.
