Media Fast Blog

Going into this media fast I knew it would be difficult, but i didn't anticipate just how difficult until I remembered we have three TV screens in our living room. For a while I stuck to my room, trying just to read and draw, but I ended up needing human contact so I hung out in the living room and tried not to face the TVs. It was also really strange not being able to text anyone - I would respond to messages from family or from people I was working with, but besides that, I didn't contact anyone. That was honestly the worst part, as I'm used to being connected to my friends at all times. However, the fact that I couldn't play games inspired me to actually leave the house and drink on the weekend, so I guess that's a win? 
The other worst part was not being able to use my laptop when I was trying to go to sleep - I like listening to podcasts to help me sleep, but without it, I had to relax on my own, which proved to be somewhat difficult. That wasn't the end of the world though, and not having my laptop around allowed me to start falling asleep earlier, so it made up for the time lost trying to get to sleep in the first place. Overall I guess I got a lot of drawing done and I left the house (we had a bonfire one night too!) over the weekend, so I'll say it was a successful 72 hours.
