I’m Angel (aka Bumblefkd), I have been hanging out here for quite some time and haphazardly started applying some No Surf techniques to my everyday. Black and white phone, moment app, blocked sites etc. I’ve known I’ve had a problem with the internet and phone use for a really long time, but every time I try a quit I go through crazy withdrawals or Fear of missing out symptoms and give up. It’s a lot tougher then just quiting and I am finally ready to admit that.
A little background - I am a stay at home/homeschooling mom of 2 and have been for about 5 years. I liked to think I was a research junkie but after reading The Shallows I really think I’m just addicted to the hyperlink. Part of my fear of missing out stems a lot from the craving for adult interaction during the day. I’ve started trying to remedy that with actually asking my friends to hang out and get together more. And not just for our kids to have social time.
I think a lot of my want to no surf is to set a better example for my kids. I am pretty tough on them when it comes to their tech use and I need to hold myself to the same standards.
My biggest goal for myself is to break up with my phone. I want to stop relying on it for boredom or anything really. YouTube and social media are my 2nd goal. Both of which I had my husband block from my phone. I have a love for makeup videos and some social media homeschool things I want to break up with.
Anyway I am rambling. Glad to have this space and rescorces to help me on my journey! I look forward to meeting everyone officially!
