5 Days in the Bathroom. 120 Hours. Let the Online Cleanse Begin!
So I’ve recently come to terms that I’m an online addict. It’s a struggle to get anything accomplished because of my addiction which includes: Email, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and especially online news sites. I go multiple times an hour to Huffington Post, Drudge, Deadline Hollywood, CNN, Fox News, The Daily Beast, NY Post, and NY Daily News. Twitter is just as bad.
My solution is to go on a 5 day online cleanse. In the past I’ve tried to stop using the internet in my daily life and lasted only a few hours. But for this to really work I need a place with zero distractions and temptations. And I have found that very place. It’s located…in my BATHROOM. This is where I will remain 24/7 for the next five days from Monday August 23rd until Saturday August 28th. No internet. No iphone. No TV. No laptop. No Twitter. No Facebook. No email. No news sites.
Here is a list of things I want to accomplish while in the bathroom. These are things I’ve been putting off, in some cases for years:
-read “Gravity’s Rainbow”
-memorize all U.S. Presidents in order
-memorize the location of every country in the world
-write letters to family and friends telling them I love them
-learn how to sew on a button -finish book proposal
-read friend’s screenplay
-memorize the Sermon on the Mount
-learn how to knit
-write a list for his wife, “99 Reasons I Love My Wife”
-learn how to play “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” on guitar
My wife, Christine, will be taking over my Twitter, Facebook, and my blog for the next 5 days. I’m not sure how I’ll survive (without internet as well as being locked in my bathroom.) Did I mention my bathroom is pink? Also it’s smaller than a standard Death Row prison cell. The video will premiere on September 8th on My Damn Channel.
