Not Tweeting is weird

Screen Shot 2019-06-06 at 9.54.49 AM

I’m only two days into not Tweeting, and here’s the weirdest part: I always feel like Tweeting.

A thought enters my head; an observation of some type—and I immediately want to share. Politics. Sports. Social. Last night, while watching Raptors-Warriors, it occurred to me that Steph Curry is basically playing with the Knicks. I thought that was a keen insight (it really was not), and needed to be presented widely.

But I’m not Tweeting, so I didn’t Tweet.

And the world continued.

This is a good exercise. Maybe limiting myself to one Tweet per day could be wise. Or no Tweets on certain days. I wanna tale my brain back.

    Every few years I give up social media for Lent….I’m a drastically lapsed Catholic with questions but I tend to take Lent very seriously for some reason…and I find it liberating but frustrating for the same reasons as you. This year I missed the whole Mueller Investigation wrap up. I will still post links to my blog via social media but I’m pretty good about it. I actually write down tweet ideas on Post-its or in my writing notebook to share later…if they are good. And sometimes they are.

    So, basically, you are admitting that you don’t stop and think before you press “send.” Goof on ya.
