First weekend without social media: Saturday

This Friday in the morning I made the commitment for a social media-less weekend. This is how that Friday went, and read on for Saturday.

Spent most of my time at home, so I'd have thought that the temptation to use pleroma, reddit, would be bigger. But when you can play a good game like Shadow Warrior, there is no choice, haha. That game is so good. I usually play FPS games on easy difficulty because I don't have good reflexes, and I am not a fast person, but this week I started on normal, and I haven't felt the need to change. So I played a few hours here and there.

In the evening I watched the Fiona Oakes documentary, called 'Running for Good'. She holds several records for marathon running, in various conditions and on various continents. Amazing woman, and she is doing it for the animals. She and her partner have a big animal sanctuary, and she works and helps the animals every single day. She also doing this with only one kneecap. Fiona went through 17 surgeries and the doctors told her, she might not be able to walk ever again.

Her achievement and dedication is amazing. The documentary is beautifully shot, too. It's about a week long marathon in a desert. I highly recommend it to watch it: you can rent or buy it on Vimeo, but if you buy it, you can download a copy of it, which is pretty cool in my opinion.

I usually don't watch documentaries, and I surprised myself. Also it was free during the last few days, but I plan to buy it, sometimes this year, and every time I feel down or depressed I will watch it. There is no reason for complaining, when other people are expanding their mental and physical capabilities all the time. Very inspiring.

And now I am going for a long walk. The weather is still good, no excuses...
