Bye Bye Facebook!

Everyone knows that I've been struggling with depression for a while now. It has had very bad times, and some not so bad times. Sometimes it is definitely more of a struggle than others. Lately, that struggle has been a bit overwhelming. Yesterday was EXTREMELY hard on me. A lot needs to change in my life right now... There probably isn't one aspect of my life that doesn't need changing at the moment.

My first step towards that change was to deactivate my Facebook account. Facebook is a COLOSSAL waste of my time(not saying it is for everyone... but for me, yes... it was). It is now just another distraction for me and so I'm erasing that distraction from my life. Part of me is kinda wondering who all will notice and what they'll say. One of the biggest realizations of how silly Facebook is has been how often today I have felt the need to get on my computer here and check my Facebook account. The thought crossed my mind, "Where will I write about what I do all day???" HELLO!!!! Remember those things called journals that I used to keep and write in daily, before I had a Myspace, Facebook, or blog!!!! I used to keep amazing journals. So I'm going to be doing that again I guess.

Anyways - I just thought I'd post somewhere on this vast world wide web that I am still alive and kicking... Just not on Facebook anymore. If you feel the need to say hi, check on me, see how the girls are, or ask me a question, feel free to call me. If you don't have my number, maybe I don't want you to have it ;) Just kidding. I still have email, and obviously... the blog. Maybe I'll actually be able to keep up this blog more now that I'm Facebook free!!! I think this first step toward a better life is a good one. I'm already getting more done and not being as distracted... in fact, this is only the 2nd time I've touched my computer all day (the first was to check email this morning.) SO yay... go me.

Bye Bye Facebook. We had our good times, and bad times. But those times are done. For now. Maybe one day we'll meet up again under better circumstances. But for now. I'm done with you! Even deleted you out of my awesome Google chrome toolbar. And my day is so much better for it!

  1. Good for you! I know a lot of people who delete their facebook accounts because it's taking too much time like you said. There are definitely things that we all need to change and I think it's awesome that you're actually being active on it.
