 Truth or dare

The both of us (you and I) played a game of truth or dare and you chose dare for three(3) times in a role. Here is the list of what i dare you to do.

  • Clear your Whatsapp chat (store important attachments though) and don’t start a conversation with anyone unless it’s very important. this’ll test your addiction to Whatsapp and show you how irrelevant some people are to you.
  • Go to Facebook and write on your wall (make it public) that you’ll be deleting your account soon. Wait for people to start begging you not to and read your chat with each of these people. This’ll help you determine how useful/worthless your Facebook friends are to you.
  • Buy a small phone that can’t access the internet, insert your sim cards (from your smart phone) and switch off your smart phone. When you do this, you’ll be able to determine how long you can cope without social media. As a bonus, it’ll also help you know your true friends because they’ll call you when they notice you’ve been offline for a while
