Background: Deactivated my Facebook Account. Logged out of Whatsapp. Cut out carbs. This is what happened (is happening):
🎛 I caught myself mindlessly flicking through … Settings on my iPhone.
💨 I fart a lot more thanks to those legumes and beans.
👨🏻⚖️ I feel like I am wearing a suit and tie while on Linkedin.
🥦 I always hoarded all the vegetables therefore less people like to eat with me.
📞 Only 3 people was concerned enough to try to find me, after they realized I wasn’t on Whatsapp. Two iMessaged me, and one called.
🔋 My phone lasts way longer every day.
🥖 I experienced greater swings in energy level … maybe it’s just the sight and smell of those damn bakeries. I swear there are more bakeries that opened in HK this past week.
🧟♂️ I am more socially strange and awkward.
😇😈 Twitter is just another echo chamber. Then when you go to the comments, it immediately becomes a toxic stew of hell and heaven.
💪🏼 🤤 I lost weight and gained “Oh-bakery-oh-delicious-bread-oh-muster-self-control-oh-shit-it’s-hard” anxiety.
👩🏻🏫 Everyone on Linkedin has found their why #startwithwhy, excels in having a #growthmindset, and wakes up at 4:30am #5SecretRoutinesofGreatLeaders.
📈 I missed the rise of Judas Law, a street musician that was trending crazily in Hong Kong. Argh, I basically missed all trends and gossips that define my social credibility.
🐻 Someone commented that I ate like a bear. The increasingly socially awkward me struggled to discern if that was a compliment or not.
🇺🇸 Twitter makes me less Asian, more American.
🗞 Harvard Business Review is almost excessively talkative on Linkedin, and I am starting to wonder … how do I know if it is not trying to trick my brain? #fakenews #jedimindtrick
🍎 I enjoy Apple News more than Flipboard. Apple News also contributed to my American-ness.
😱 Facebook still runs in the background (I kept the app but was not logged on). This was according to the Battery Usage in settings. Oh did I say I was flicking through settings?
and … finally …
No Carbs? Maybe low carbs.
#deleteFacebook is likely going to stick.
Whatsapp won. It’s impossible not to use it in this part of the world.
I enjoy LinkedIn.
