BlogHer Prompt: Tuesday, November 19, 2013: How much of the day are you plugged in? Do you consciously set aside offline time, or does it happen whenever it happens?
When I am at home, I am always plugged in. Either on my daughter’s Kindle or on the computer. The only time I purposely set aside to be offline is when I sleep. That’s not to say that I’m not offline at other times. One does have to eat and shower and use the washroom, after all. Grocery shopping and other errands also tend to interfere with being online.
That being said, being online still can be educational as opposed to watching some of the crap that’s on television nowadays. At least when I am online, I am reading or learning something new. I even manage to find educational videos and such.
I also don’t own a cell phone. Well, at least not one that is operational at the moment. So, at least I don’t have that interfering with everyday life.
