Unplugged 2019

3 weeks.

No cellphone.

No social media.

No Whatsapp.

No laptop.


Detoxing from my daily online life was not a walk in the park. It caused tremors and withdrawal, but it ended in utter relaxation and freedom.

Of course, getting back to work today and firing up the old Mac was a little anxiety producing, but it turns out that, as I thought, nothing earth-shattering had happened.

I indulged in time with my little nuclear family without all the drama of mobile phone holiday tunes _ ping, ping, ping PING!

We played board games, we hung out, we went to the movies, we went canoeing, some of us went ziplining (not me), we binge watched Netflix series and we found out that we all quite like each other.

Who knew.

I hope that your holidays were happy, peaceful and fun and that this year, you’ll find some time to unplug too.

I write because I have to. It is a compulsion. I do it to vent, to laugh and to remember. I blog because it has been so long since I had to write with a pen that my hand would go into cramp if I tried to write a journal.
