Happy Monday to one and all! I know it's Monday and all, but let's at least just pretend Mondays are awesome and fabulous. Ummkay?
So we need to talk. I think I'm going to get rid of facebook. I KNOW, I KNOW! Blasphemy! I've been on facebook since Sophomore year of college. That's 5 years y'all! I've been in relationship with a social media site longer than I've ever been in a relationship with a MAN! Facebook and I have been through a lot of ups and downs over the years: format changes, strange friend requests, and a semi-stalker or two.
But, now facebook and I are having issues. Issues that might just be the end of a beautiful love. Facebook used to be the place where I joked with my friends about our stupid college escapades: posting pictures, leaving inside jokes on each others walls, and generally acting like the 19 year olds we were. But now my grandmother is on facebook (WHOMP WHOMP). My Dad is on facebook. My old bosses are on facebook. My 11 and 14 year old sisters are on facebook. EVERYONE IS ON FACEBOOK!
Where oh where am I suppose to post pictures of parties, ridiculous costumes, and general embarrassing daily acts? Basically, I don't want anyone but my friends knowing the way I really act on the weekend.
It's not as if I'm some sort of baby-sacrificing heathen who shoots heroine at swinger's parties. I'm just a regular 20-something who acts like an ass on a regular occasion.
A week and a half ago I left facebook, we were on a break. Not broken up. On a break. But then it was kind of a pain not being able to see email address, birthdays, and the like. So today facebook and I have reunited on a trial basis. I've brought my profile back but purged some random "friends", removed all photo access, and shut down my wall.
What do y'all do about facebook? Are you friending your grandma's? I need some help here lovlies!
