The problem I will always find with un-plugging, although enticing, is that I will miss the knowledge I gain. I use the internet to read, to learn, to find passion. Even if 75% of social media is unimportant gibberish; I would miss the 25% factual, insightful, and inspiring content that I do occasionally come across.
I live in a town with so much knowledge; surrounded by many people who I could never even think to compete with on one particular subject. My only hope to survive this oasis, is to fill my brain with facts, current events, and mid-bending conversation pieces, so I don't stay stuck in the fucking food service industry forever. Gotta make those connections yo.
I'm like you though, I spend too much time on the internet. My friend's eyes go glassy when I start to ramble about the interesting things I've learned from places like Reddit and Hubski.
That's when I start to question my time spent online. I'd be really good at current events trivia. Anyone from here need one of those sorts for their "Geeks Who Drink" team? Yah, I thought not...
