Got back from our little trip on Saturday and notionally planned to resume my practice of eschewing the internet again on Tuesday; Mondays being the day I would deliberately use the internet and Sunday being, for that day at least, a day of relaxation after having experienced the tribulations and innumerable minor insults that comprise the adventure of air travel in the 21st Century.
Then Tuesday happened. Decided I needed to look up something on tires, and the next thing you know, I'm liking cat videos, checking Instagram, re-tweeting... Gah! So, I just gave up and figured I'll reset on Monday and just go on a bender for the rest of the week.
It is very interesting to kind of "observe" my behavior and relationship with the internet. It does seem very "rewarding" (in the dopamine sense of the word) to interact on Facebook. Post a comment, get a "like," see someone else has replied to your comment (via that little flag in the top of page), go check out that comment.
Well, I have to go and check out if anyone's liked my picture!
