idkwtf I ate today, but I can't stop farting. It's as bad as if I had eaten a big pot of undercooked beans, but I didn't eat any goddamned beans today.
So it's past midnight, I'm waiting for my digestive system to calm down, and I'm thinking about mindfulness and this abominable tendency I've developed where I do pointless shit without thinking about it. Opening the browser for no reason. Mindlessly flipping through all the useless windows I have open, other than the one in which I'm fucking working on something.
I'm inclined to stay up a little longer and think it to exhaustion, and maybe come up with some lifestyle changes.
I mean, it's simple: in resisting internet bullshit for 10 or 15 minutes, you start thinking about all the other stuff you'd rather do with all the time you spend "checking" this or that for "just a minute", lol. Little of it has any urgency; you can skim headlines later, or at the end of the month, or never. The less often you "check" things, the more selective you'll be about what to engage with, and the more time you save.
We all already know the answers to these sorts of problems, but the will to execute isn't always there.
Something wonderful happened recently: my tablet finally got so old that none of the attractive nuisance apps even work anymore. All I can think is "good; to hell that garbage." Now I have nothing to do in bed but go the fuck to sleep.
