What happened when I went screen-free for a day…

what happened when I went screen-free for a day

I am attempting to incorporate a few more healthy habits into my life. Tired of feeling sluggish and spending hours on the couch, last week I heard someone talk about going screen-free for a day, and I thought, YES. This is the perfect habit to introduce into my life. Spend a whole day with no computer, iPad, iPhone, tv or Kindle. Good for my eyes, my brain, and for my ability to procrastinate like there’s no tomorrow. So Sunday, I went screen-free for the first time. It was sort of tough, but sort of not. Here’s why.

Podcast post

Fed up with listening to the radio during my peak hour commute (lame jokes, too many ads, not enough music), I have recently started listening to podcasts.

Recap: En Otra Piel/In Her Skin – Episode 154

EOP Recap

It’s the FINAL episode everyone! *sob* I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the readers of these recaps – and especially everyone who has left me comments. It’s been great reading them every week and sharing watching this truly addictive show with you all. Let it be known, we here at Cactus Pop have emailed SBS (several times) asking for a new telenovela to be put on. They have said there’s no plans at this stage but that they have had a lot of similar feedback and they are passing it all on. So fingers crossed. Anyway, let’s recap this final episode! It’s a tearjerker!

Recap: En Otra Piel/In Her Skin – Episode 149

EOP Recap

Our time is coming to end with this one. After this week’s episodes, we only have four to go. I have to say, I am going to be sad to lose this show – it’s been fun! But enough of that, Monicana was going to “reveal all” to Gerardo at the end of the last episode, so let’s see if she followed through.
