The Question: What is the one thing you should get rid if, but probably never will.
This is an easy answer. I need to get rid of my Facebook account because it is like crack! Although, I have never had crack, so don’t get me confused (silly me). Anyway, it really does take up some of my time. It is one of those things that is good and bad at the same time. It is the one thing that keeps me updated on what’s going on with everyone’s lives. In some sense, though, I wonder if it is really necessary. Facebook has rekindled many lost friendships I’ve had. I’ve found people from back in the day on here and they have found me. It is almost like a blessing in disguise. It’s like knowing what’s going on and getting to know people on a much different level. I’ve thought of deleting my account many many times before. I think I’m coming closer to deciding that I actually will even though it has become a part of my life. Don’t get me wrong. I spend a lot of time with the kids and I don’t neglect them in anyway, but as the days come by faster, I really think I can make better use of my time. I can be sleeping as opposed to checking updates when the kids are asleep. I can be reading a book. I can clean my closet. I can do laundry. I would probably not need to charge my cell phone as much. I could probably have a meaningful conversation with my husband in the car instead of staring into my cell phone. The list goes on. It’s like minutes in a day of checking on my phone, but it all adds up on a daily basis. It’s not like I’m glued to it 24/7, but the minutes I am on it could be spent doing something else more meaningful and worthwhile! It’s amazing now how everyone and everything is on FB. My bank is on it. Businesses have accounts that you can be a fan of. It’s just crazy how a college network has turned into a means and necessity of life for so many people. It has for many people and my husband is one who is NOT a big fan of all this social networking stuff for all of the above reasons I want to leave it.
That’s my easy answer folks! You all have a great weekend. I am working this weekend at my new job. At least it’s only eight hour days and still being precepted, so I have a nurse buddy showing me the ropes. May it stay beautiful and sunny out! Enjoy!
