Today is the first day in months that I haven’t spent hours snorting up every skerrick of information on my Facebook feed and favourite blogs. And the amazing thing is: My life is none the worse!
It makes me wonder whether I am wasting my life. Seriously. Do I really need to learn how to catch a kangaroo or intimate details about Amanda Bynes alleged dope problem? I’m frittering away precious hours in trivia. Aaaaaah!
Reading stuff on the Internet is just so bleeping additive. The world is at your fingertips. You can find out anything. For a Gemini like me that is too enticing. I have a serious case of Eight Of Pentacles Reversed: An inability to stop processing information.
But I think it’s time for me to consider whether I really need to know about the things I am reading each day. I need more meditative headspace in my day. Especially if I want to become a published writer. So I’m gonna try to dial it down, plug in less. Wish me luck!
Does anyone else out there have a serious addiction to the Internet like me?
