We don't have the internet at our apartment. When I have the opportunity to update my blog it's only at work. When I come to work and use the internet I spend hours on facebook. I become absorbed with the social site that draws my friends, 3/4 with whom I don't even talk, together. I log-on, see who has updated their statuses, look at a few photo albums, and then click refresh several times during the course of several hours. Two days ago I decided that I can't do this anymore. After about 5 min. of thinking about it I deactivated my account. I'm not sure that this is going to be a permanent change but Ill guarantee that I won't have it for the duration of the summer. I don't want it run my life during the summer. I once had my account deleted but activated it again due to some requests from friends telling me that they don't talk to me any other way. I haven't talk with those people at all on facebook and have decided that if they really want to talk to me they have my e-mail and my phone number. I'll probably activate it again when school starts but I'm not sure quite yet. Right now, I just don't see the benefit of having a facebook account. I can be social without having the internet getting in the way.
