Sad times for old school furry

Before the likes of websites such as Furaffinity, Inkbunny and SoFurry, there was an archive called VCL (Vixen controlled library?) It was a website that had very little in the ways of functions – no commenting system, no favouriting – but it allowed users to upload and share their artwork and contact one another via …

Some self reflection

I took a step back from the internet – I’ve always had some sort of presence on social media – when my Husband finished work for the Christmas break on the 15th of December. I was using some websites pretty avidly in the month or so before this date and honestly, I was feeling like …

Internet Detox – Day Seven

Monday. I had the blues. I needed a distraction today, so played a heap of Dragon Age again. Soon I’ll be needing a Dragon Age detox!! – I also read about the next step in my watercolour learning process and it looks a lot like it gets complicated quickly. I’ll be giving the next step …

Internet Detox – Day Six

I don’t think there was much to say about today really. It was a Sunday. Myself and my husband went to the Trafford Centre at about lunchtime, which was a bit of a silly mistake because we seemed to spend about an hour stuck in traffic. We brought ourselves a present in the form of …

Internet Detox – Day 5

Today was easy. It’s a lot easier to avoid addictions like the internet when you’re with other people. Real people. Not to say that people that you speak to aren’t real, but they’re just not the same. You can’t call them up and ask them to come over and keep you company when you need …

Internet Detox – Day Three

So, I am now onto day three of my detox. It’s gotten a little harder. I can’t express how important I feel this process is for me. I was spending all of my time on the internet. From, the moment my husband went to work to the time he got home again. So, that’s at …

Internet Detox – Day Two

I felt it nagging today, and as such I felt a little unsettled. I could hear that little voice just telling me; ‘Check your messages, it won’t take long.’ It took a lot of effort to resist it, but I did. And I feel proud of myself. I buried my head in housework, simple things …

Internet Detox – Day one

Internet Detox – Day One. So far, so good. I didn’t spend any time yesterday on the internet. Other than the few moments it took to update my blog. And you know what? I already feel like I am being rewarded for it. During my morning walk with Barley, about 9:30, I saw something I’ve …
