A while back I made a post about “disconnecting.” I’ll be honest, the only times that I don’t have my phone handy are when I’m at dinner with family or friends, or during a work meeting [unless I just have to show someone a cute photo of Rory!]. I do a pretty good job of keeping it out of sight if I’m out with friends…until someone whips out their phone. And then it’s like oh, well if you’re doing it…then BAM: You’re sitting at a table full of people staring into their laps. This past weekend a friend jokingly told me to “disconnect digitally and reconnect socially” [or something to that effect]. It’s a disease! It usually starts because I want to photograph something…and then I get distracted. urgh.
Let the record show that I may be an introvert, but I am not a hermit just yet. I’ve got my job, rollerderby, and crossfit where I socialize regularly, and then whatever weekend commitments are planned. It’s just that, when there is that wee bit of free time, instead of immediately texting my friends, I let that time wrap me up in it’s lazy arms. We cuddle a little bit, me and Father [Spare] Time, and bask in the
lameness sweetness of watching an entire season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in pj bottoms and a sweatshirt, and maybe some popsicles. Glorious.
I feel ya! I actually have a super-old flip phone and have refused to upgrade because I know I'd never "log out" otherwise! I'm definitely a hermit though–barely know anyone in Denver so I get my social interactions online. Not good!
Love the Thor stuff. =D
I'm obsessed with your hair! It looks amazing, especially in the first picture.
And what you said? I couldn't agree more. But I don't think it's a bad thing needing alone time to recharge. It sound like you're having a very full life with lots of social interaction! Sometimes there is nothing nicer than hanging out with yourself.
I've been trying to do the same thing and it's hard for exactly the two reasons you said- when your friends grab their phones and when you want to take a picture. I've thought about carrying my actual camera around to avoid that part of getting the phone out, but then I have to upload them later to instagram something. It's hard when you're one of those people that always sees stuff you want to photograph!
I am such a sucker for a pleated skirt!! I love the way you styled yours! Plus the length is GREATNESS for teaching!
And girl the first thing I did when we had our snow day was grab a big ole glass of vino! I getcha!
I am a total sucker for Hemsworth as Thor too…and I thought he made a pretty hot Huntsman as well 🙂 Long hair really suits him!
I admittedly am very introverted and would consider myself to be somewhat of a hermit. I've lived in a new city for over 2 years now and have yet to make any friends outside of people I see at work everyday. I've thought about (and really want to) join a Derby league here because I think I would make really great friends and it would be a lot of fun. Maybe this will be the year I go for it 🙂
P.S. I nominated you for the Liebster Award today!
