Hey everyone. Whoa. [yawn/stretch/scream] Alright. So I just woke up and it’s 11am. I know that it is kinda late in the day, but believe it or not, I had a GREAT productive stretch the other night and didn’t get to bed until 4:35am. So really…I got about six and a half hours of sleep. Not quite as much as I wanted, but what can you do?
To give you a little idea of the master piece I created the other night, click on this link. I am glad that it turned out so well, but I am not even done! Ha. The assignment was to make our own Midterm and the best one gets a PERFECT grade for the Midterm. Yeah. Just a little incentive. If your Midterm does not get picked, then you have to take the Midterm when you get back from Spring Break. I’m hoping that mine is the best. Still, I have to add 4 essay questions to my Midterm, AND, just like all the other questions, I need to answer them. So that’s what I’ll be doing today.
So, I have done a very good job of not going on facebook while I was working the other night. I have to admit to you though. I feel like I am becoming anxiety prone to checking everything that I usually check throughout my day. It’s sad and very interesting to me. I would wager that you check it everyday as well. I would challenge you to try going 24 hours without it as well and gauge your reaction to it.
I have done this in the past and I have loved it. Leaving facebook for a little while has always helped me to recalibrate and not become a slave to the web, ha. Still, I’m not hating on fb, I am NOT going to delete my account when it’s all said and done. I love keeping in touch with all of you, and have even managed to keep a very valuable long distance friendship going for over a year via facebook. The site is doing a good job at its core focus: brining people together. and I appreciate that.
STILL, we need to be real with ourselves people. When does something become unhealthy? This is a valid question, and one that will change from person to person. And yet, you should be asking yourself that question about the internet, especially for this reason: The internet may bring people together, but it also has the power to keep people apart…Physically. Make sure that you are taking in healthy doses and geting out once and a while to actually SEE the people you interact with online.
Me? Well…I’ll be a prisoner of my computer for the next three days, but it is not because I am glued to pinterest, reddit, youtube, netflix, stumbleupon, or facebook. The reason is because I am working tirelessly to get the Masters Degree and see you all at my Graduation Bash I’m throwing on May 12th. I’m doing this for my parents, my friends, New Zealand, 19 years of schooling…and myself. God is my strength, and in the end, I always have to give Him the credit for getting me through what I thought I couldn’t. Thank you all for your support. And as always, I’ll keep you updated as I walk along this journey. Peace and live in the sunlight.
