Lent 2017 – So Far… (Day 2)

So far all is well.  I’ve been on the road a lot with work and haven’t needed a break to escape.

Youtube – I would usually set up Youtube on my kindle to listen to a documentary or news as I fall asleep. That’s been replaced with using my Alexa and “News Briefing” or “Play music”.

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.
