Lent 2017 – Giving up Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube!
Every year about this time, Lent rears its ugly head and friends ask “So, what are you giving up for Lent?” In years past, I’ve done deserts, chocolate, fast food, meat (I was vegan for 40 days), etc. This year I decided to cut some ties to my online accounts (albeit for a little while). I am giving up Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube for Lent.
I found that these three services/products (?) are my largest distraction from every day life. It is easy to fall into the pit of all three services and while away entire weekends with nothing to show. So in an effort to become a better person, logging out.
I am following my fiance’s lead on this (she’s staying away from Facebook) and I thought I might share in the e-withdrawals.
