I mean, obviously, yea 😛 Nothing terrible happened, calamity did not strike but I did learn a few things about myself.
Like, way too freaking much and it’s so easy having the app because I can just find whatever pops into my head and order it. Having to sit down at a physical computer made me realize that this is wasteful and I should be bunching my orders together. I removed the app from my phone because it’s just too easy and then beyond the shopping part, the app allows you to obsessively track your order and it’s just not necessary.
Not sorry about it, I didn’t really miss Instagram or Twitter all that much. It was fun catching up on posts and posting a few new things but I actually enjoyed not feeling obligated to check my phone for new posts constantly, which probably defeats the purpose of social media and while I am keeping those apps, I am limiting the amount of time that I check them. I did miss the WordPress app, it’s easier to stay current with posts and replying to comments when I have it and I won’t be cutting back my use of that app.
In my defense, part of my job can be impacted by inclement weather but I really missed my weather app. I need to know.
In all honesty, the stuff that I missed the most like music and audio-books, I was able to access using my laptop. In my opinion, I think that removing the convenience aspect of the cellphone forced me to be more intentional with how I was spending my time. Instead of aimlessly scrolling, I could pick up a book or get chores done or finally watch that movie that I have been wanting to see.
I enjoyed the time off from my phone, I have started leaving it in my purse instead of having it on my desk and letting it charge in the kitchen instead of in my room where I am more apt to pick it up for no reason. And honestly, it just wasn’t that hard to disconnect and I hope to do it more in the future!
