I normally go home for lunch and when I got back to work I realized I had left my phone at home. I had a minor moment of panic and realized I was being ridiculous. (I literally live one mile from my job so I could walk home if it came down to it.) I’m an obsessive facebook scroller. I only have like 80 facebook friends so I don’t know what I’m looking for.

I’ve actually been trying to get off my phone a little more lately, while also completing some craft projects. So I recently finished a scarf that I’ve probably been working on for months because I keep forgetting about it. This got me thinking about other things I could be doing that aren’t checking my phone.
