Use of Resources

I got my new computer and it was already pre-programmed with tons of advertising. I feel like our culture conspires to keep us from living simple lives. I had to figure out how to get rid of the advertising I did not want. I have decided never to click on advertising. If I wish to purchase something, I will go hunting for the item myself. I am so ridiculously tired of being marketed to.

No more diddling around online. I am looking for ways to use my computer sparingly and productively. Leo Babauta is a great help. I have a few of his books now. They keep me on track

I am determined to be much more careful in my use of resources. What do I want in my life? To learn how to provide a safe space for others, to be helpful to humanity, that kind of thing. I want to learn Access and how to make myself more valuable to businesses. I want to make the energy I have count.

About cdhoagpurple

I live in Michigan. I was Greek Orthodox (and previously Protestant), but now am more Buddhist than anything. I am single now (through the till-death-do-you-part clause of the marriage contract). My husband Barry was a good man and celebrated 30 years in AA. I am overly educated, with an MBA. My life felt terminally in-limbo while caring for a sick husband, but I am free now. I see all things as being in transition. Impermanence is the ultimate fact of life. Nothing remains the same, good or bad.
