My cellphone all the time saved me entertained. Now I’m craving boredom.
I’m not one for New 12 months’s resolutions, however within the first minute of 2023, I deleted each social media app from my cellphone (I then spent the subsequent 5 minutes resisting the urge to obtain instagram and put up footage of fireworks). It’s been a very long time coming: for the previous few months I had applied timers on my cellphone that blocked social media from 9 to five, hoping to curtail my scrolling. However these timers and blockers quickly grew to become simply one other simple barrier to dismiss after I was bored. I wanted a tough reset. I wanted to get reacclimated to being misplaced (and bored) in my very own ideas once more.
