note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint. Rather, it's an observation on how different the landscape of my life has been without it. I've been reading more, watching more TV, doing less doomscrolling. I found that I've missed my phone a lot less and simultaneously a lot more than I expected. And I've been noticing a difference in my mental state. My mental health is, apparently, linked in part to the device I hold in my hand 99% of the time. Who knew?

Holding Back

My family has made a decision to cut back on electronics... you can read about it here. Surprisingly enough, I think this is good for my family in many ways. Already today, my siblings and I have interacted a lot more, and have made some great memories! I will learn to manage my time better. I also think that the computer was slowly wrapping its pixelated talons around my life, and that I needed to get it off!

Anyway, us kids will only have one hour on weekdays, and an hour and a half on weekends. I will do my best to post at least once a week, and probably on Tuesdays and Fridays. Unfortunately, replying to comments will probably suffer, too, as much as I wish it won't. Anyway, please understand that since my time is now limited, I'm not ignoring you, I'm just not able to respond, although I do read every single comment.

I may be able to email some of my close friends, if you would like... I will try to respond to those as frequently as I can.

Blessings,
~Kylie
