As I had hoped, quitting Facebook is already proving to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Yes, I still spend more than my fair share of time online searching for classic cars and watching fishing videos, but I haven’t been sucked into any political arguments on social media in almost two weeks.

According to the screen time report on my smartphone, I spent 25% less time online last week than my previous 7-day average. In my newfound free time, I managed to reread one of my favorite books, The Hobbit, and I have begun to reread the Lord of the Rings trilogy, too.

I have also been able to spend a lot of quality time with my granddaughter. Freya is only two months old, but she is already my favorite person in the entire universe (don’t tell my wife and kids).

I also feed Freya, burp her, take naps with her, and change her diapers.
