Hey internet noodles. as you may have noticed, I’ve been taking a brief writing hiatus over the past few days. All selfishly as I’ve been letting out one massive extended sigh of relief over the past week. I am finally back in my house with my girlfriend(whose moved in) and being home has also allowed me to pare down my screen time and spend more time petting my dogs and being in the moment. It’s easy to get preachy about disconnecting; there’s this sentiment of the internet and technology being so damaging and soul sucking that millennials cast into the echo chamber ad nauseam, after which we all come desperately crawling back. but it’s neutral in my eyes – the internet can be used for good and evil, you just need to think about your engagement. and it’s kind of like meditation…it’s not the end of the world if you use it and get sucked in, it’s just good to be aware of the usage and gently pull yourself away when you find yourself being consumed.
Anyway, more to come. I’m catching up on the oodles of life things that I’ve gotten behind on (hi everyone who I haven’t texted/messaged/emailed back! I’m getting there! even if you reached out months ago! sorry!!!) so I’ll be seeing u around 😎
