Hiatus Week 3 - What I'm Missing
It's week three of my social media hiatus. And I'm still surviving! YAY, ME! That said, I mentioned last week the You Tube vortex that sucked up a bunch of my time. This week I had to add You Tube to the hiatus. It turns out, I WILL find ways to waste time, even when I'm actively trying to avoid doing just that. Sigh. I'm going to have to find some balance, eventually, because I can't permanently ban myself from social media. The hiatus is helping, though. At this point, I think even when I go back to being engaged on social media that I might just allow myself the weekend and maybe a couple of days a week to be on it. Or maybe just one particular platform a day. I don't want to lose all of the increased productivity I've gained from the hiatus by just jumping back in with both feet once it's over. I've still got a couple of weeks to mull it all over and decide how to proceed. If nothing else, I'm glad I did this so that I know that I can do it. I wasn't so sure, going in to it. That's how dependent I'd become on social media.
Speaking of dependencies, I have discovered that I apparently get the bulk of my news from Twitter. I did not realize it until I had to start actively looking for news once I stopped going on Twitter all day, every day. Twitter is the place where I got all my breaking news, local news and sports and entertainment news, for the most part. I do watch the local news on television but nothing seems to be as on top of everything going on everywhere as Twitter. I miss my tweeps on Twitter, terribly, which I completely expected, but I also miss all my news sources which I had not anticipated.
Just a couple of TV notes this week.
Chozen - I cannot even express how wonderfully filthy this show is. This week's line "well, hello bitches...." is just about my favorite line of the week in all of television.
Sleepy Hollow- The two hour season finale did not disappoint! Triumphs, failures, big reveals, heart tugging moments and an ending I did NOT see coming! The wait until fall is going to be agonizing!
Justified - Flirty Raylan and Agitated Boyd make for fantastic television viewing!
That's it for this week! Happy viewing in your world! Catch you next week!
