Switching Off

It’s the first Monday in May, a bank holiday of course and what better way to spend it than having a good Spring clear out? 

The house is (almost) spotless, the kids have had a good scrub and there’s no stopping me!

I’ve been unwell over the weekend and it struck me, having lain in bed in agony, just how much time I spend on social media. Is there anything else to do when your sick?? 

I’m an absolute social media junkie, I spend hours of my day on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. 

With even more NCTJ exams looming I can ill afford to be checking out my friends photo’s, stalking Hacker T Dog (of CBBC fame) or posting random train selfies!

So, I have challenged myself to go cold turkey. From 6pm today I am deleting my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram apps for a week. I already feel sorry for my nearest and dearest as I’m probably going to be a nightmare by Tuesday evening.

My Court Reporting exam is on Wednesday 18th May so I’ve prepped a tonne of revision for the times I’d usually open the Facebook app. 

I’ve lined up September 2016 course information to browse for when the Twitter the kicks in.

And I’ve got a dedicated photo folder set up ready for all those selfies I’m not going to post on thee most narcissistic Instagram account since the Kardashians came to light! 

So all that’s left to say is goodbye, until next Monday! 

Have a great one! (Just don’t post it on social media til next week okay?)
