It’s been about a week since I’ve deleted ALL of my social networks. I was fighting a war inside. I knew I would probably die without them, but I spent way too much time on the internet.
Because I haven’t been on neither Facebook nor Twitter,-I even deleted my Google+-, I am going through some serious withdrawals. I want to tweet about how badly I want to tweet. I’m quite sure I’ll be over it soon though. Some days are easier than others, but other days all I seem to think about is what my next update would have been.
Although I have gotten a lot more done since I am no longer tweeting my life away (I was in Twitter jail twice in one day before, back to back), I have become infatuated with Doberman Pinschers due to the extra time I have to research them and I’m a bit disappointed that I won’t be able to have one for another five years. Dorm life won’t permit me to have a furry friend.
I have come to the conclusion that it is nearly impossible for me to live without neither my laptop nor my cell phone. I admit, my phone is off most of the time. I turn it on about twice a day to see if I’ve missed anything major and even then I still don’t check it every day. I recently deleted approximately 150 contacts so there are not many people to talk to. Maybe if I actually had someone interesting to text I would actually leave my phone on, although I’m not very fond of texting. I know, what kind of teenager am I? The main reason I use my phone is for the internet, which brings me back to my point: I can’t live without the internet. No, really. It seems like the internet is my source of oxygen.
Twitter will permanently delete my account in about 23 more days, and Facebook in 7. By that time I’m hoping I will be social-network-sober. For now, it’s just me, all of my lovely readers, and my blog.
Au revoir =D
