I’m taking a much needed break from all social media. That unfortunately includes a break from this blog. It won’t be as long of a break like my other hiatus but it will be a break nonetheless. I’m taking a break from this blog, Facebook, Twitter, the general internet and my various GroupMe chats.

Why?

I think it’s necessary for us to unplug sometimes. With everything happening in the world I think it’s good for us to get away from all the bullshit. That’s how I feel right about now. There are days I wish we could go back to a time before the internet became EVERYTHING. It was a simpler a time. And honestly, it seems like it was a happier time…not just for me, but for the world.

I was having this conversation with my coworker about Toys R Us. As we all know it is going out of business. I’m old enough to remember the playful commercials and the excitement that surrounded the toy store. My coworker made the comment that part of the reason the toy store is going bye bye is because kids don’t play with toys like that anymore.

After thinking it over I actually agree with her. Shit I barely see kids outside anymore.

The world has truly changed.

It’s changed a little too fast for me.

I want to go back to a simpler time.

So on my break from the internet and social media I plan to focus all my free attention on writing my memoir.

I’ll be back.
