1)I am doing no net December. No internet use for the month of December(actually started on Sunday, the 24th of November). So 5 weeks without using my phone or the internet. The exceptions are content creation, downloading audiobooks, a possible book group chat, and checking in with stuff for 20minutes every Saturday to make sure my affairs are in order.
2)I had the best Thanksgiving ever. I purposely left my phone in the other room and just tried to be myself. As a family, we played a lot of games and no one had any fights.
3)I am currently on a buying ban for a year to find out what things really add value to my life. Along with a buying ban, I am doing a library ban, because the goal I want to achieve the most when it comes to my books is to actually read my own books.
That was basically the gist of the posts.
No Net update:
I keep picking up my phone and wanting to hit the Voxer button. I got a ton of work done at work yesterday. I started to rewatch Buffy season 2 on DVD last night, haha.
The Macho Paradox by Jackson Katz – Would like to finish this before Saturday
Elysium Fire by Alastair Reynolds – Starting this in about 10 minutes
The First Lord’s Fury by Jim Butcher – About 70% through this and enjoying it but it is taking longer than usual
