Three weeks prior I was at a point where the most exciting thing about waking up was jumping out of bed, grabbing my Samsung phone, and checking my emails back in the comfort of my bed. I set alarms to account for the ten minutes that I would spend in my bed every morning just catching up on what I had missed in the online world and my alter ego of a blogger.
Mentioned in last week's post, an internet intervention was much needed, and while this meant going AWOL for a few days, it was nice to be able to fully appreciate what it's like to not have something I constantly need to be checking. No more Instagram at the dinner table, no more emails every morning. I let the emails accumulate, my inbox reaching an all-time high.
I didn't realize how consumed I was with this alternate universe until I left the US and was without 4G internet in Shanghai. Here I was, again, asking each restaurant and establishment for their internet password. Detaching myself proved to be a struggle. But alas, I feel as if I have somewhat succeeded!
Much like my need to minimize and simplify with the internet, my personal style has also gravitated towards minimalism in the past year - hence the monochrome and basics à la Céline-esque structure.
Much love xx - thanks for putting up with my ridiculous antics and rants. I feel like the internet is a place for me to dump my brain junk.
PS. excuse my cuts and scrapes - the klutz in me (who am I kidding? The klutz is me.) decided to take a few falls.
