BUDGETING TIME BETWEEN REAL AND VIRTUAL WORLDS
Among many things, after blogging here for almost two years now (first on my now defunct blog---webutante.blogspot.com---and then here at webutante07.blogspot) I've gone from a size 4 to almost a size 8. The operative word here is almost.
I've told friends who've asked me how long I'm going to do this gig, when I hit a size 8, I'll stop blogging, cold turkey, even in the middle of a sentence.
So now I'm almost there and not going a size larger. Even if it means I give up blogging foreve-vah!
The past few weeks, however, I've been fishing and hiking and mostly wearing myself out away from the computer. I'm back down to a size 6.
Nevertheless, all is well, as I stay more in the real world and continue a bit of a blog fast. I'm sleeping well and want to find a new balance for myself. A new balance between the virtual and the manifest worlds, if I continue.
Don't know yet, if I can. But I'll never be happy sitting in front of a computer screen most of the day.
This world is addictive and also fattening.
Only time will tell whether I can sustain a new balance and keep myself in a size 6.
