Social Network

I have deleted my Facebook account probably a dozen times. It's pathetic. It really was difficult for us to go our separate ways. I loved the hundreds of friends I had, even though I only spoke to a few occasionally. The little red notifications were always a treat for me, almost like Christmas morn'. I enjoyed stalking my "friends" albums. To top it off I found myself curious to know about the graphic statuses that I'd read on a daily basis.

Alls I'm saying is Facebook is a fun thing, but I decided for myself it wasn't the legit way to keep friends. Maybe it's because I'm married to an activist that despises Facebook. But, he hates anything social. If his work never needed to get a hold of him, he'd probably chuck his phone into the ocean. Oh, and that would be if we lived by the ocean. Which we are hoping to do someday. I miss Facebook because it seemed I had a better connection with people, but it was almost a facade. Like, I was talking myself into the friendship. I would stalk my friends profile and consider that to be my update. It wasn't tangible, I couldn't really give that friend a virtual hug. I mean, I could, but that would be weird. I don't hate on Facebook or anyone that is currently apart of the Facebook world. I just wish Facebook wouldn't take away from true friendships. It seems it has robbed people of trying to maintain a strong relationship with people. Instead, of using your phone or physically meeting up with someone...You're just one email away from becoming BFF. Am I making myself clear? No? Could you at least pretend like you understand where I'm coming from? FINE! I miss Facebook. I do. But, it's definitely helped me stay focused on school work by being off of it. Someday I may return.

Honestly, I don't have much to blog about at the moment and this is the best I've got.

Oh. I do have something to say. Not sure if any of you are Amanda Bynes fans. Well, I am. Maybe it's because everyone I know from High School said I looked like her, well, my facial expressions mimicked hers. That could be it. I've been watching a few of her movies this week. Two of my favorites: She's the Man and What a Girl Wants. Brings back great memories. You should watch them. They are full CHEESE, but I don't even care. I'm as cheesey as they come, so it fits me like a glove. Happy Thursday, people!

I'm so glad to know that you deleted your account. I thought you blocked me specifically. :)

So I think that you NEED to get back on Facebook because it is a great way to rekindle freindships. I have met up with plenty of people (and have had play dates with them)that if it wasn't for facebook I probably would have never seen again, because life gets so busy. These people were old friends from High School that I haven't talked to since I graduated and it was SOOOO good to get together with them and catch up. So facebook doesn't always stunt friendships it just depend on how you go about it. So that being said. I WANT YOU ON FACEBOOK!!! :) But I DO understand that it is a time sucker which doesn't help with school. So in that case I understand but once you Graduate you better get back on... or else. :)Oh and facebook is sometimes better then the phone because as a Mom everytime I am on the phone Peter will cry, or get bored and start screaming at me, and the list goes on. :) But I really DO think that we need to do lunch, I know I keep saying that and don't follow through but it is because we are SUPER tight on Money right now...meaning we don't have hardly any to spare for lunch. So maybe we can go out for hot coco or something small? :) We could get Whit and Brooke to come too if you want. :) LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!! and MISS YOU TONS!!!

Linds, you are the winner of this debate. You make some excellent points. After graduation I will reconsider getting back on. For you. :) AND, I'm going to buy you lunch because I owe it to you. I didn't even celebrate your birthday this year. And your birthday is coming up again, so I really owe you. Just let me know when you are free and we'll get together. I miss you too!!

Zach & Lindsey Boskovich said...

Yeah I finally won at something. ;) LOL! JK. Well I owe you for your Birthday because I wasn't able to do anything for it and it was just your birthday not that long ago too. :) Maybe we could do some sort of pot luck where everyone brings something to share. :) And Brooke's house is about half way so we could ask to meet up there. :)
And you better hurry and graduate so that you can get back on facebook soon. :) Well let me know if the pot luck sounds good to you and then I will see if I can get the other girls on bored.
