Things I Will No Longer Do On The Computer While I am Blogging To Have More Time For Reading Books and Travel Stuff
“It is named the “Web” for good reason.” David Foster Wallace
I will not look up old boyfriends or people that I used to date.
I will not look on facebook at people who are no longer my real friends. This includes people that I was never friends with who happened to go to my elementary school, high school, college and grad school. This also includes people who used to be friends with my kids, parents of my kids’ friends and people their age that they were not friends with.
I will not watch youtube videos of people that I used to know.
I will not google relatives who no longer speak to me. I will not google other people’s relatives.
I will not look up anything that has to do with the Real Housewives franchise. Teresa and Joe will have their trial, Kathy will make her cannolis and the Atlanta housewives will be cray cray without me. I will not look up the American Idol or the Voice contestants.
I will not google every random ailment that comes into my head. This includes the weird spot on my hand, cramp in my left leg and rash on my elbow. Neither one of my kids have blood clots. Hypochondriacs (and I include myself here) stay off the internet!
I will not google every random thought that comes into my head.
I will not try to find every single song I like on the radio and put it on my ipod.
i will not buy anything that I think I need in the middle of the night.
I will not read menus of restaurants I have not been to yet. I will not read menus of restaurants that I have not been to in a long time. I will not read menus of restaurants that I did not like to see if they have changed.
I will not google every “what if” scenario that could happen to me in whatever country I am going to.
I think we had a lot more time before computers.
