"I decided social media was becoming an unwanted large part of my life. So, for a day, I decided to not use it. You won't believe what happened."

Look, see that millennial sitting on the couch, scrolling through Twitter retweets and Facebook likes? Well, that's me (or at least the digitized version of myself) and I just decided I'm going to put the ole smartphone down for a day to take a break from social media.

As soon as I "unplugged," I started thinking about all the activities I could do, now that I was unchained from the jail that is social media. 

I decided, "Before my life was engulfed by comments and favorites,  I used to like to draw." So I went back to a hobby long forgotten, put on the back shelf by the digital me.

I forgot how good I was. These are some good drawings, for a millennial. 

I don't think any millennial could have predicted what was about to happened next...

My drawings came to life!

Art encompassed me as I felt the instant gratification, something us millennials need, for actually living life! I then thought "What to do next." I had already become God in such a short period of time since turning down the demon of Virtual Communications. Creating life felt amazing, so naturally, I went on to do more things that could simulate the feeling of being an almighty force...

So I smoked crack out of a Dr. Pepper can with Puffin and Mr. Seal.

Good stuff. This is living life. Take note, Generation Z. 

Without the restriction of 140 characters, I was INVINCIBLE! Until the cops showed up.

I'm the King.

Sometimes I fear us millennial's are too caught up on our digital lives that we often forget to live real life. I think this experiment proved that we, especially millennials, are all better off without social media at times. If nothing else, what I personally learned from the experience, the life outlook it gave me, is that crack is fucking great.
