Sometimes Facebook makes me feel like a loser. When 7 of my friends all have a mutual friend but I have no idea who this person is, I begin to wonder what these 7 friends have been doing without me. I don’t care if they all live in another state. They don’t all live in the SAME state, which means they aren’t all hanging out with this person without me; they just know them without me. How is this happening?
And I’m really happy to know that I have over 200 friends. This fact would have helped a lot in jr. high, actually. But right now it doesn’t help too much because Daniel has 2000 friends. I would tell him to go out and get a life but he is obviously getting out a lot already because he has 2000 friends. And over 200 people wished him a happy birthday. It makes my 40 (which I am very, very happy about thank you every one) look like loser ville, which would NOT have helped me in jr high.
But I like Facebook. It’s an easy way to communicate with people without having to call and figure out what to say past that first sentence. Because I don’t have time for real conversations. I mean, who does with all the time I spend on Facebook?
I may give it up for Lent. Let me know when there are three days of Lent left and I promise, I will give it up.
Wait. What if I don’t post, but I can read other people’s posts?
Wait. What if I can only post from 2-2:10pm?
Wait. What if I can read others’ posts, can only post from 2-2:10pm and if something really, really important happens that no one would actually know about except for the fact that I can post it on the world wide web really easily?
But besides that. Totally giving it up. For three days. Unless no one reminds me.
