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.
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 :) )
