On December 7th I decided to swear off twitter and plurk (outside of plurks tagged with tf or obviously about [community profile] thoughtformed). I wasn’t sure if I could do it, so I didn’t say anything when I made the decision, but as it’s been more than 21 days, I think I can safely say I formed the habit of not regularly checking those sites anymore. I realized I had an unhealthy obsession with checking them all the time, so basically: It’s me, not you. I hope we can still be friends. Etc.

I’ll still respond to @ messages and DMs on twitter, and any @’s and pplurks on plurk because I’ve got email notifications turned on for all four of those. I've also got text stuff for twitter enabled, so we could even use that like text messaging.

I know it's kind of awkward and weird making an announcement about this, but I also really really hate it when people disappear from social media with little fanfare and then you just wonder about them for a long time, so... yeah. Also, it really has been a conscious decision, so it felt like a conscious announcement needed to be made. I'm so addicted that I don't think I can use the websites without getting full-blown obsessive again; even checking plurk for tf stuff feels dangerous, but I don't want to miss out on plotting things!

Anyway. End of year meme!!!

For previous years, please see: 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, & 2012.

01. What did you do in 2013 that you'd never done before?
Went on a series of dates with the same guy.
