Well, Hi, I'm Calli! We were asked to do the ''28 Day Challenge'' in my CLP-1000 Psychology class, which is giving yourself a goal to reach over a 28- day period and we were asked to use Tumblr as a step-by-step tool to show our journey to accomplishing our goal.
*****My goal is to stop texting as much as I do, because it's getting ridiculous how often I do it, when I do it, and for how long. I am going to cut down on it.
bought a new phone, no point having an android phone when i don’t have apps, or music, or any of that stuff. so with that being said, if anyone wants to buy a metro phone, i’m your gal.
on another note, texting is very irrelevant in my life now, yay
So I really did bad towards the end of this spring break when it came to texting non stop.. mostly today and yesterday. But other then that, the majority of spring break was spent at work or fishing and i begun to get used to leaving my phone off or at home and arranging my rides to get me at certain times, and to let them know if i need them ill find a way to contact them, and before i knew it i didn’t really even have to do that anymore and everything was much more calm without my phone.
On another note, I deleted my facebook probably almost two weeks ago or so, and that has also given me a distance between how often i’m using my phone, or bothering to text people. I really feel like since the moment I made this goal for myself, that it would have some sort of reward, whether its not that big of a goal or it sounds silly. But I personally have seen a change in my confidence and how i act or what i do with my spare time ever since i came up with this goal.
That sounds silly I know, but for me texting became 99% of my life like when I was 12 up until the start of this, and now I’d say it’s down to a high 40%. Probably even lower. I hid behind it because I’ve been insecure, so I’d text for no reason, or to keep friendships, or just send a text to so many people at once just out of bordeom because I felt that was what i needed to do or i wouldn’t have any friends.. lololol
But, I can say this.. Those who need to contact me, talk to me, miss me, or just wanna say hey, can obviously make effort to do so without me having to spend my whole day texting for no reason.
———-An as I finish writing this weird long explanation of my life and why I even chose this goal, I wan’t to point out, that I have purchased a keyboard - and I am in the process of teaching my self the piano, (as a new way to spend my time :) )
I’ve gave up coke, been drinking water only for the last 3 weeks. lost 6 pounds, and my face is so very clear. happiness is a understatement. :))))
I have not touched my phone in days. I’ve actually gone out to buy books, movies, I’ve swam, worked, and done everything else productive with my time.
Well, I am actually very happy that I chose this as my 28 day challenge mostly because I was too attached to my phone whether I was texting or just using it as a distraction. This challenge has brought me progress when it has come to being more open and social and not relying on my phone to get me out of awkward situations. It has also made me text less, and leave my phone off or at home when it obviously wasn’t even needed. I feel like the more you put your mind to something the better outcome you’ll get at the end because of how hard you tried to put effort into changing it to begin with.
Sunday I slept pretty much all day.
Today, I got sick at school and I missed work and stayed home and completed stupid Math XL all the way to April 25th.
My priorities are obviously out of line here.
But, I’ve been leaving my phone off and at home, so that’s a plus.
I have been without a computer this whole weekend, so I couldn’t post anything.
Thurs- I didn’t text anyone or mess with my phone other than to call my mom.
Friday- Seeing as though I got a bit tipsy……No phone/texting was needed. LOL
Saturday- I relied on my phone too much today to get my mind off of being sick :c
off to a better start in the morning!
———— I forgot to write on here because I’ve been insanely busy with family, and school work. But the past two days I’ve barely touched my phone, and I’ve left it home and in my bag and what not. Its no longer attached at my hippp.
