On not spoiling Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens


Like I promised, I’m not going to spoil the movie out of respect for those who won’t get to see it right away…but I have something to say to everyone who is anxious and uptight about accidentally seeing spoilers on your newsfeed: Try staying off social media until you do see it. It really is pretty simple, and I can tell you from first hand experience, when I recently disengaged from FB for a full week, that you WILL NOT miss it (social media). It was quite refreshing and I didn’t feel like I was “missing out” on anything. 

So consider taking whatever delay you’ve got until you do see Star Wars as an opportunity to take a break from the Facebooks and Twitters of the world. If you need to stay connected, you still have email (remember that?), texting and—God forbid—TALKING on the phone. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is.

Just something to think about.
