I wake up. I go online.

I eat. Online.

I work online.

I am online before I go to bed.

The world does not revolve around the internet but my life does. I will begin an internet boycott on June 1 to return to a life free from my next hit of internet. I will read books. I will make pies. I will stare at the ceiling when I can’t fall asleep.

The idea of an internet boycott is not new. There are forums across the web that promote an internet-free lifestyle. I have promised myself an internet boycott for months and the time is finally right. On May 31, I will likely fall asleep holding my phone. The same will not be true on June 1.
