Life Without My Phone — Day 2

wow. I woke up feeling more amazing than I ever have in a while. As soon as I woke up, I meditated, I cleaned my room a bit, and I picked out a book to read for the day. I even wrote in my to-do list, but I haven’t even done half of the things I intended to do. That’s okay, really. I did a lot more, though. I finally started writing the first draft of my novel (yay), and while I definitely don’t expect to finish it this year, I will write a little bit every once in a while and see where it goes.

Towards the afternoon, however, I started to feel a little itch emerge in my head, and I knew I would try to go use my phone. Surprisingly, I still haven’t. It’s 7 pm.

I have also started to do other things to kill time that I normally wouldn’t have time to do, such as re-reading Paper Towns while walking downstairs and playing the guitar as the summer/winter sun shines on me through the clouds. It’s amazing.

As for not finishing everything on my to-do list, I don’t feel the same level of anxiety while working as I used to before, so I know I will do it when I need to. I trust myself that much now. Tomorrow’s a holiday anyway.

I don’t really think there’s much to report other than that, but I’ll keep you posted!



we can convey the truth with stories. by writing it, you set the world on fire.

-Neil Gaiman
