Anyone remember Frogger? I played this for hoooooours approx 1984!
This Trash Compactor made me look. We had a similar garbage can as a kid growing up in Switzerland. They became a thing once you had to pay for each bag of garbage you put outside. Also, garbage pickup was only once a week! Imagine that, New Yorkers!

My name is Tina, and I have a phone problem.
One of my big goals for 2019 is to change my phone habits. I am an addict.
To help this problem, I am considering buying an Apple Watch, so that I can leave my phone behind, can still receive phone calls and texts from my kids and close family, but can’t get sucked into any apps. I have asked on Instagram story today if anyone had success with that method, and looks like a lot of folks did. (I know, it seems counter intuitive to solve a technology addiction problem with more technology.)
Do you have a healthy relationship with your phone? Do you have any advice?

“What is workism? It is the belief that work is not only necessary to economic production, but also the centerpiece of one’s identity and life’s purpose; and the belief that any policy to promote human welfare must always encourage more work.”
