Taking my life back.

August 15th, 2012 § 3 comments

After way too many near-attempts at throwing my phone out of the window, into a canal, or against a wall, I decided the best thing to do was to simply delete everything on it.  I no longer have any apps, I deleted facebook from the phone, and I signed out of everything except email.

It’s a phone again.  Just a phone.

The touchscreen still angers me beyond belief, but I am no longer contemplating phone murder, and my nights are much more enjoyable.

I’m seeing people, and doing things, and reading more.

You wouldn’t think that these have anything to do with eachother- having a smartphone and being social/having a life/imbibing culture, but they are directly correlated, at least in my life.

And besides, look at my summer reading list, back at the library this Saturday:

"Light" Summer Reading

I’ve only read one and a half so far.

Do you think I can manage 7 and a half books in 3 days?  How about when one is in Dutch (‘Ik, Jan Cremer’) and another is 1,474 pages (‘A Suitable Boy’)?

    I have a very basic phone as does my husband and we do get some weird looks every now and again but we love that they are just phones!

    Good for you! I say read the Dutch book first. I need to read a book in Italian. They say that’s one of the best ways to understand a language. Let me know how it goes.

    Now I know why you haven’t responded to any of my attempts to invite you to a game of WordFeud lately. My nemesis is Facebook. It is SUCH a time suck. I want to delete it so badly but it’s like deleting your e-mail account or something. It’s all anybody uses. I want the world to stop using it so I can too.
