A few things about time spent offline
the Substack newsletter, not about spending time offline
It has been almost two years of writing time spent offline. You could have been anywhere else on the internet, but you’re here with me, and whether it has been two years, two months, or two weeks, I appreciate that. Thank you for your attention.
I want to say a few things:
My life is a chaotic, beautiful mess right now. I won’t pretend writing time spent offline takes a lot of time: I think, therefore, I write. It’s basically a week-long internal musing that I furiously type onto the world wide web to meet a self-imposed deadline every Tuesday. But. It still takes brain bandwidth and if it’s between muscle spasms at Pilates or another internet content, I’m choosing… not you. With that, December might be a slow month in these time spent offline streets. Haven’t I said enough already anyway?
With that, (Substack, please don’t ban me for saying this) if I ever make this newsletter a paid subscription, please unsubscribe immediately. You deserve better. Of course, if I ever write that book please consider purchasing. Thank you.
The best way you can support this publication is by quitting the internet. Just kidding. If time spent offline has helped you in any way to spend a little less time online and enjoy the offline world a little bit more, I am beyond happy for both of us. We made it!!!
I’m keeping the weekly Tuesday schedule and five-things template. If it ain’t broke… but the five things I share might fluctuate each week in terms of content. That’s because I want to share a quote I actually want to share with you, and not just to fulfill some self-imposed rule about sharing a quote. Forgive me, I have done so in the past. 😬 Let the bygones, et cetera.
For the weeks I have an impending existential crisis or other important things to tend to, I will, at the very least, send you email to delete. Literally, email to delete. So you won’t forget about
metime spent offline.
(Mostly note-to-self) I don’t matter, time spent offline matters. I write to feel less alone, and reading, I hope you feel less alone on this journey too.
That’s all for this week!
Thoughts, comments, ideas, (dopamine boosting) compliments? All welcome 🥰
P.s. This would have been perfect to share last week but to borrow perfectly said words, i am wishing you tenderness this winter. i hope can find warmth as the weather gets colder. i hope you can eat warm meals and sleep in a warm bed. i hope you can find love in the simplicity of life. i wish you tasty cups of tea and good music. you deserve good things now <3
With so much gratitude for this tiny corner of the internet, and until next time,
