The last week of June I decided to remove my Twitter from phone as a sacrifice . The following week I removed Instagram and last Sunday I deactivated my Facebook. At this point I guess I’m taking a social media break. I still have Pintrest on my phone but it doesn’t have the same draw as the other three so it will remain. I have been doing a little more reading. Taking more walks so we will see if at the end of July I even feel like going back to social media. I’m not going to pretend I don’t miss Twitter and Instagram because I do. Also because I don’t watch traditional TV and I got my news from Twitter I had to find a way to get the news so I have begin checking my local newspaper and CNN twice a day but for no more than thirty minutes just to make sure I’m not missing out on breaking news. Have a wonderful week, if you can’t take break from social media for a month try just for a day or weekend.
My week was quiet spent some time reflecting on my goals for 2018 and my current planner situation as we move into the second month of the year. Here are few other things I dabbled in this week!
Television: The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story – Season 2 I remember some details of this but not many. The acting has been wonderful. I knew when I saw Judith Light episode 3 I was in for a treat.
Books: I finished Silver Sparrow by Tayari Jones. I didn’t quit love this but it held my attention. I hated all of the characters and felt the resolution was meh. This was second time reading a book by Ms. Jones. Right now I’m 50/50 on her but her new book is on the way via Book of the Month subscription.
Podcast: Still Processing, Jenna and Wesley came of the gate swinging after their break. I have enjoyed all of the new episodes so far. Even when I don’t always agree they do make you think about things in pop culture a little differently.
Food: I’m finishing up my final week of Whole 30. This has really shown me a lot about my diet and things that I’m okay with not eating on a regular basis. I have slipped up few times but overall I have been committed.
