Thank you for sharing this.

I did a 2-year social media hiatus a few years back and it was incredible. Now I use Snapchat and Medium, but that’s about it.

Aaaaaalmost went the whole way with the no-internet thing — I probably spent a total of 30 minutes using my phone each day and didn’t discover the WiFi hotspot until a year or so later. Now I’m slowly coming back.

I have similar feelings about the horrible noise produced by TVs. I can’t remember the last time I watched TV. The noise makes me sick — especially when it’s background noise. I can’t even stand the sound of people watching videos on their phones in public spaces. I used to be a sound designer professionally, and I have a loud sound system in my car... but at home — no. I don’t want to hear any sounds at all.

It’s interesting how everyone has different aversions that stem from different things.
