Can you survive seven days without going online? A question by Bianca Mascenon in the August issue of Candy magazine. Sounds interesting, right? So I gave it a try. Surviving a week with no Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The big question for me is, how can I survive? Social media is everywhere! But I found a trick that will help me (hopefully) in this challenge. I hid all my social media apps to avoid distractions. Well, it helps a little in some ways. So here’s what happened each day of the seven days social media challenge
AM: I spent it by reading a magazine. I took a photo of the August issue of Candy mag and I was tempted to post it on Instagram but my mind says: “You need to survive this challenge!”
PM: Watching TV all night
AM: Went out of the house and had no Wi-Fi which is a good thing for me. Hooray!
PM: Where are my social media apps? Oops, I forgot they where hidden. So I just played some games on the phone to escape boredom and slept early
AM: Omg. 3rd day without going online. I’m starting to wonder what’s happening on the online world. Should I quit now?
PM: Checks messenger. Oops, 5 messages. I recieved a great news. I need to tweet this!!
AM: Reading a book all day
PM: Slept early
AM: Went to a friend’s house and had a time to eat ang chit-chat with her all day
PM: I put all my social media apps on their old position. Checks Facebook and Instagram. I’m dead!
AM: Checked emails and decided to clean my room
PM: Twitter party all night
AM: I went online to read some fashion blogs and since I already failed the challenge, I posted the photo I took 5 days ago – the candy magazine and others.
PM: Updated my blog.
That’s it! My seven days social media challenge. Sad to say, I failed.
