So last Thursday I decided to ditch Facebook. The app's even deleted from my phone.


These are my top few reasons:

1. I got sick of being addicted to it. I would go on there so often and find myself realizing that I really didn't care about most of what I was reading.
2. I always said "it's such a good way to keep in touch with people that I don't see often." Well, I also realized that there was life before Facebook, and somehow - SOMEHOW - people managed to keep in touch with the people who were important. I have a phone, call or text me. Or a blog, comment anytime!
3. Well, that's it really.

HAHAHA

And ya know what? I don't miss it, not one bit. It is funny though- my friend was over the other day and left Facebook open and on the sign-in page on my computer, and I sat down and automatically logged in (when you deactivate your account, you simply have to log in to reactivate it), and after logging in, I was like "what am I doing??" and logged out, haha. Obviously I need a break from Facebook. I literally sat down at my computer and blankly logged in, not even thinking about it because it's been such habit and routine for almost 9 years now. 9 years. That's kinda crazy!

GOODBYE FACEBOOK! 
It's been real.

(I might start a new Facebook account eventually with a private profile to manage a page for my blog, we'll see...)

  8. I was so addicted to it, and for no reason I finally realized. I never would have thought a year ago I could ever do it, but it's been so easy!
