Goodbye (for now), Facebook!
I, like many others, have ‘wasted’ (debatable terminology, I know) countless hours scanning our news feed. And while I love using Facebook to connect with those around me, I’ve always had a fairly solid love-hate relationship with technology. I love finding ways to use it to help me stay in touch with those I may not be able to see as often as I’d like (my love affair with FaceTime is undeniable). However, I like to unplug from time to time, disconnect, and fall off the face of the Earth. I love the feeling of going camping–somewhere where I don’t get reception, where I can leave my phone in my car for a few days, and just connect with the environment and people around me.
It’s been on my list for a while to spend a solid 30 days without (logging onto) Facebook before I turn 30. Well, it looks like that time is now. Amidst a new roommate, a trip to Europe, and a transition to a new job, I am, indeed, choosing to fall off the face of the Earth. And with that, I’ll see you on October 12. Cheers, my friends!
P.S. I do still have a cell phone (with FaceTime!) 🙂
Some extra food for thought:
