Do you remember the episode of Seinfeld (The Chinese Woman) where Kramer stopped wearing underwear because he was worried they might affect his fertility? He went from briefs, to boxers, to commando. He found the change exhilarating.
I’m on day 33 of my social media fast and I’m loving every minute of it! I know I said I didn’t see the difference at first, but now? I’m a fan. Okay, I’ve had some social media interaction if I include posting links to this blog on Facebook using a personal account that has no posts, no friends, and no likes. It’s an empty account that gives me no access to everything Facebook offers. In short, if it’s happening on Facebook, I don’t know about it. I don’t get caught up in the drama going on at school. I don’t have to read ridiculous political opinions. I don’t know the existence, let alone the date, of the next home party.
It’s been great, but Lent is coming to an end and I’m afraid of what’s next. I haven’t decided if I’m going to go back to posting on Facebook and Instagram. I’m afraid I’m going to get lost in the time suck that is Instagram. That Explore feature is deadly.
I have about two weeks to figure it out.
