Well, I've gone two days without posting anything to Facebook. My account hasn't been deleted because I realize that I wouldn't be able to call anyone because my phone book in sync'd with Facebook. I have made it so that people cannot post to my wall, my phone doesn't notify me of anything and I would like to go back one more time to update my profile picture. There's a special picture I'd like to leave up while I'm gone.
I don't feel disconnected from the world. I had a small get together for New Years Eve with a few of my closer pals. It was a great time with a lot of junk food :-D
I think I was such a Facebook Junkie because it was an easy distraction. Didn't feel like waiting in line at the grocery store alone? Just jump on and see what your "friends" are up to. Get cut off in traffic? Post about it on Facebook. Hell, leave a license plate number and description of the car.
Eventually I hated so many of my friends. They were either very outspoken about politics (both sides,) posting baby pictures like anyone gave a fuck or were just Negative Nancy. I don't need any of that. If I cared that much, I'd ask.
I've started texting and calling people more often. Someone asked for live updates via text. I hope he knows what he's in for.
I know this means I won't be "in the know" about get together and events, but if it's that important, I hope someone thinks to call me. I have other friends that aren't on Facebook. But he's important enough that he gets a personal call or text when events are planned because I enjoy him being there.
I've decided this isn't going to be a journal. It's going to be an actual blog. I'ma write about topics in hopes that my writing gets better and people become interested enough to have conversations in the comments. I had 108 hits since I put the page up. Maybe someone will say hello ;-)
Have a good night.
