I created a facebook account for candy crush, BINGO & Watch what Crappens (A hilarious podcast).
I shut my facebook account down in 2008. I found it intrusive, fake, loaded & overall just a pool of madness. I found people living lives that they didn’t live, faking relationships & just being odd.
I first joined facebook in 2005. Summer before college. I met my roommate on Facebook & a couple of other ‘friends’. It was AMAZING. My roomie & I are actually friends now. How weird! Nine years later. Anyway, we enjoyed the idea of a ‘college social networking site’. This meant all of the other friends we left behind from high school weren’t allowed to join. My mother/father/granny/aunties/neighbors didn’t even know about it-let alone own an account. It was exclusive. Call me stingy but I enjoyed the exclusivity. It was a world that not everyone was allowed into, so we loved it!
I remember shutting my facebook account down & breathing a sigh of relief. I didn’t have to comment on excessive, attention seeking statuses. I didn’t have to look at someone pretending to be happily married. I didn’t have to watch people lie about how their child is the smartest in the class & then have to hear the opposite on the phone. I WAS FREE! I knew people in “real life”. I created true interpersonal relationships with people & didn’t have to figure out which was which. I wasn’t bombarded with an internet personality AND a ‘real’ personality.
Five years later, I created one using my blogger name. Its been about 3 weeks now. I haven’t added anyone I know in “real life” except my sister & my wonderful brother in law. Solely because they dont live fictitious lives & I knew they’d give me free lives on Candy Crush. Back to my point; I created an account to play games & connect with people from a podcast. I said all of that shit just to say that I hate when that I cant get free lives/BINGO bucks or connect with my podcast people without having an account. I mean WTF?!
“Is this what the world is coming tooooooo?!?”
Anywho….I’ll be 26 in a few months–gah! I’m looking forward to it though. I throughly am enjoying my life. I have two beautiful nieces that I love more than life itself. I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD LOVE LIKE THAT. Wow. Ive never loved anyone like that.
I love them unconditionally…they’re perfect. PERFECT.
My life has changed for the better these past couple of months. Ive purged fear, shame, guilt. Ive found a wonderful spiritual family & Im complete. Im self sufficient; making great choices for myself & enjoying this life journey.
Ramble..ramble..ramble. Shit, I talk a lot. Im out of Candy Crush Lives, so to bed I go. Leaving this note riiiight here with one of the worlds cutiest people alive:
