Exit the metaverse with me!!!
Quitting social media is soooooo last year
Reality > Screen Time.
Five things to share:

Quit social media is a short video from Cal Newport, the man who never signed up for Facebook and never got on the social media train, that inspired me to delete social media back in 2017.
A quote I want to share with you:
Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
— Mary Oliver

You are most likely a cyborg and you don’t even know it.
Do you have a smartphone? You’re a cyborg.
Do you use a computer? Or the web? Cyborg!
More generally, if you use digital and networked technology today, you are a cyborg.
