|What's real good ganstars? So, I did it! I went 40 days without that godforsaken Facestalk. You may recall from this post, that I gave up Facebook for Lent. Well, I did it, and I have to say, I actually learned a lot. While I stayed just as active on the twittersphere and Instagram, In the meantime, I actually grew an unhealthy obsession with Pinterest. Ooopsies. |

Here is what I did learn though:
1- Facebook is really annoying and intrusive, however, vino with girlfriends is effing awesome.
B- The Mister is already annoyed by my rejoining the FB society because he thinks: my "face is always in my phone already."
3- Life is so much less dramatic when you are off the book. I mean, I really believe that there should be a filter on FB for "Daily Drama". I could easily aggregate 1/3 of my Facebook contacts to that filter.
4- Number of people who actually missed me? 20. I have nearly 700 contacts...soooooo, I am clearly not as popular in that space as I like to think. And we all know I am in it for the fame.
5- I do have some dear friends that really like and miss my ridiculousity, therefore, I will keep my account.
With all of this being said, I am changing my behavior...Which is difficult to admit, considering I have been a member for quite some time. I think I will use it to keep my fams up to date on pics and mayjah life events. Other than that, I feel like its a stream of banner ads. I hate banner ads. They are mattebrownsuckiness. I don't know...Maybe I am getting older, or maybe it just took a break for me to realize that it takes time, not a Timeline to build and keep friendships. I am resolving to continue to put my time in to my friends. Because as I told The Mister on Sunday morning: "Aren't you happy that we finally have some substantial, and normal friends?". I want to keep that trend going. So, if you are one of the 700 or one of the 20 friends that I have that actually giveadamn, let's give each other quality and dynamic, instead of "OMG, I can't sleep" or photos of your food, or "Wheels up". I am a firm believer that you shouldn't put anything on the internet that you wouldn't walk into a crowded room full of gossip queens and yell. And I like to gossip, so, there you have it. JKJKJK. I talk shit to your face, not behind your back. No but in all seriousness, pick up your phone, write an email, or pay the 45 cents and actually pen someone a letter. Don't just talk about yourself, ask about someone else and engage in their life...not just from a mile high view, but a down and dirty allupinyourface meat and potatoes friendship.
