Hi guys! How’s your 2017 so far? Mine has been expensive, materialistic and unnecessary. Grab a chair and let’s have a little chat! Shall we?
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that the start of the year is proving to be expensive. I’ve been to the mall countless of times (it also doesn’t help that I work near one) and I’ve been splurging myself with things. So far I bought two sweaters I probably won’t wear in this tropical weather, a pair of shoes I don’t really need, four pairs of socks, jeans, four tops I don’t know if I’m ever going to wear and tons of skincare that’ll probably last me a year. I told you. It’s proving to be expensive. The only good thing about this is during the Christmas season, I didn’t buy much so I have the budget for all this. But still, I want to be a minimalist and this isn’t what a minimalist (or a wanna be minimalist) should be doing. I’m still going to use the “I’m going through something” excuse for this though. I don’t buy it, however, lol.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that my niece and nephew are both in front of me with their gadgets. They’re only 8 and 10. It’s such a young age to have a gadget and to be addicted to it. My nephew can’t stand a day without borrowing his mom’s iPad to the point that my sister can’t even use it when she wants too. I’m trying to limit their internet access though. I’m being selfish with the password and I give them time limits if they want to use it. Sometimes they get mad but I don’t care. I couldn’t even use the internet when I was younger. I think I had full access to it only when I was in college. My dad was very strict about computer time and only let us use it when we had homework.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m trying to limit my gadget time. I work ten hours a day and I’m always in front of a computer. I’m always holding my phone or iPad. My eyes don’t get rest and I want to change that. Right now I’m typing this on my iPad instead of a computer to try to lower my radiation time (?). I hope this little things help for a better and healthier me. This also means I’m going to end this coffee session because I want to read a book. 😝
Lastly, if we were having coffee, I’d like to know how your week was. What are your plans for the upcoming week? I’d love to have a chat. Let’s talk! See you in the comments below. 🙂
