So a couple days ago, I got fed up with the world of facebook and decided that it was time for it to go. After deactivating my account I felt like I had cut my arm off. I have had a myspace/facebook since I was in 7th grade and I feel extremely removed now that it’s gone. I promised myself I’d leave it off for at least a week and see how life goes when I don’t have instant access to all my friends, present and past, with the click of my mouse. I know it’s only been about a day and a half, but I am shocked at how much I have crossed off of my to-do list. I finished a custom beanie order that I have been working on for a year and a half (it took me so long because my little brother’s friend wanted it and I didn’t really think he was serious. Turns out he was).
I also finished a cute scarf for my shop and got started on my last custom knit order! It should be done today depending on when I leave work.
NOT ONLY did I find time to finish those two knits, but I also wrote in my journal, read two chapters from two books that I’m currently reading, wrote my two articles and bio for a craft zine I am a part of, AND I PAINTED!
I’m not saying I spent 24 hours a day on facebook before, but I never truly realized how much time was spent there. It was far more than it should have been, clearly. So my question (and maybe challenge?) to you is, have you ever tried to go without facebook? If not, try staying away for a few days (or forever!?).
Before I head to work (my god I’m so so so late), I wanted to mention that I have a cute monthly newsletter starting up. If you’re interested in getting it, email me at SundayMorningSugar@yahoo.com. I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say again that nothing on the newsletter will ever be seen on the blog (and there may be a coupon for my shop for my first round of subscribers!). So send me an email!!
