A Day Without Media

I was challenged to go a full 24 hours without any media usage. This meant no cellphone, television, computer, or anything with a screen. Now some may find this easy, but for me, I am surrounded everyday by media. I knew this was going to be a challenge so I chose a day that I was going to have to work so I would not completely lose it. I started this attempt at 10:00 P.M. on Friday before I went to bed. That next morning was a struggle because I had to use a manual clock to keep time. I went into work that day at one. I work at Rendezvous Formal Wear, and Saturdays is our busiest day. Since we are so busy, I usually do not have time to get on my phone anyways. That made five hours of my day easy. The difficult part was after work, the first thing I do when I get back home is get on my phone and catch up on what I missed that day. Since I could not do what I usually do after a day at work, I compromised. My friend needed to me to paint a paddle for him, so I found this to be a good time to do that. I worked on it layer by layer throughout the night. I made dinner which also passed time, while I visited with friends. I found this assignment not to difficult, because I was able to consume my day with people around me. I would much rather visit with the people I love than spend my time using media.
