Brandi: Unplugged

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

It’s probably a bit obvious that I’m a bit of tech addict. I check my email and the Daily Mail on the way to work, in line at Starbucks, then get to work and do work on a computer, then leave work and read email and the Daily Mail again on the commute home. At night, I go through my Google Reader maybe a little Facebook, blog, etc. So A LOT of computer time.

Like a true addict, I know that I can’t cut myself off completely, but I’ve decided to go Tech Free one night a week. And since Tech-free Tuesday has a nice ring to it, I’ve picked this night to:
  • Not use my computer
  • Have limited phone usage (I need to glance here and there for missed calls and the work BB)
  • No Nook
  • No iPad (ha, my roommate hogs it anyways) 
I’m going to use my techless time to:
  • Craft
  • Read books and magazines
  • Gym visits
  • Drink wine
  • Outdoor exploring
  •  And maybe some new found hobbies

So don't think I'm ignoring you if you call, email, FB, Skype, Gchat, Meebo, Instagram, Tweet or whatever me on Tuesday. I'm just going Tech Free! Anyone want to join me?
