To my own horror, I found myself checking Twitter before I went to bed last night and Instagram too when a light bulb went off in my little head that said Hey Dope, there are far better things to do with your time. Grab a book. Talk. Get outside for a walk.
So this morning I turned over a new leaf. I deep-sixed my Twitter and IG accounts, although IG makes you jump through an extra hoop of deactivating before permanently deleting so that task is not 100% done, just 95%.
Long story short, I found myself obsessing over the Trump Twitter haters and responding dumb stuff back. It was as stupid as it gets, I hated myself for it yet kept going back. I’ve never been addicted to anything before but I can honestly say I can understand the compulsion that comes over someone with an addiction. I’m done. Time for a clean slate.
I’ll keep blogging though because I find EOSredux a comfort, a peaceful and fun place – not all the hype and hate that takes place on twitter and on IG. IG photos of so many women proud to be a part of the March Saturday was too much for me. Women who are otherwise smart saying stupid stuff and wearing pink hats. I don’t get it.
I’m a Maggie Thatcher woman….
So with all my free time now, what should I do????
