The Electronic Drug Fast

Sometimes I feel that life is just passing me by, which it is.  But what I feel sometimes is that things are happening so fast that I can’t get a grip on the current.  It seems like every time I get something down something else comes into plays and throws things totally out of whack.  Sometimes it is for the better and sometimes it is not.

I wonder though if I could just take a breather for a moment and make the Earth slow down.  Maybe quiet down all the distractions and just focus on what is truly important in life.

About a month ago I got angry and broke my cell phone in half.  I needed a break from people having to get hold of me for every little thing.  I even deleted my facebook page for a day and some of my friends were not happy so I reactivated it.  But do I have to make everyone happy all the time?  No, not really.

So, I am considering doing a special week fast.  Maybe starting next week.  At first I thought I would do facebook fast, but now I kind of want to do an Electronic Drug Fast.  (funny name huh?)  It would last for 7-days and I would not get on a cell phone, computer, T.V., radio, video game, or anything electronic.  I would communicate via letter.  (Imagine that.)  I would simplify my life.  Maybe I would even eliminate driving a car…although I might need to get to school or work, but I could just ride my bike more maybe.

I really want to do this.  Perhaps I should wait until school finishes, and perhaps I should not.

I guess it is all up to me.  I love being in complete control for something like this.
