The way I think is the way I speak. Which is also the way I use social media – a stream of conscious. Timehop reminds me every morning. Oh, two years ago today, I was thinking about chicken soup and two hours later I tweeted about being tired.
A few weeks ago, I deleted my social media apps from my phone. I still use social media – it is kinda part of my job. But cutting them out of my in-between moments, I’ve been mostly silent on social media. It was weird at first, but it’s refreshing. On one hand – who will know I had brunch? Started a wedding registry? Miraculously only spent $60 at Costco this week? Short answer, nobody. Even better, it doesn’t matter.
Part of it is a craving for privacy. I’ve broadcasted so much, so publicly, for so long. So, I think it’s time for this to come down. Much like my Twitter and my monotonous dog-face snapchats. I’ll leave this up for a little, then I’ll take it down. Maybe it’ll come back up someday.
Anyway, till next time!
