Lent 2017 – So Far… (Day 2)
Twitter – since the election, I’ve been following President Trump. Every morning I see the overnight tweets and reply in what I believe to be the appropriate manner – massive amounts of snark. This has lead to an increase in blood pressure and an inability to sleep. There have been many times where I fell down the rabbit hole and almost posted items that would incur a visit from the Secret Service, but I pulled back and made edits. Staying away from Twitter has been a good thing. The overwhelming information about what is going on in the world – can’t handle it.
Facebook – where am I going to post my Geek musings? Well, I’m storing them in a folder and will be posting them on April 17. In the meantime, it is nice to stay away from a lot of the political posts and memes. On the other hand I do feel a little disconnected from the rest of my family and friends.
My fiance is on a “Alternative Spring Break” with some of her students in NOLA. They’re working in food pantries, building homes, and planting trees – so she’s physically away. I envy her.
