its been a while.
I didn't really relise I needed a break until I started to break and just had no interest in going back. I went cold turkey didn't touch a computer for over a week. 12 days to be exact. there were a lot of factors, being home being one of them, christmas, visiting, but the major one was just general lack of interest.
I need to remember that life happens outside of the screen. yes yes yes yes yes I knoooooooow you have to be online for some things but I personally just need to put down the computer, my phone (instagram) and the tv. turn it off. sit for 5 minutes with it off. not distracted. actually wait, be distracted. listen to your body and mind, but don't go behind the screen. be free from it. bake for no reason. repot your plants that are overgrowing. I think its also important to say that it doesn't have to super high productivity time either. I often get suckered into thinking that if i'm not 'relaxing' behind the screen I could or rather, should, be doing something on my to do list. not true. go for a walk. make a craft. fail at making a craft.
that rant was really just so I can remember my point later when I'm stressed and wonder how I got that way.
theres going to be some things I need to remember in 2013 but for now I need to get away from this screen.
