I finally got round to deactivating my Facebook account. Not because it wasn’t used because it was and not because I didn’t care about all the annoying people on it (well maybe a little. It was mostly use to keep in contact with family, who I don’t talk to anyway. so while I was using it to mutually ignore my family and friends, I was only using it because I felt that I had to use it to make it worth having.
Then it dawned on me that I had been using it less and less over the last few weeks, only using it to update an occasionally funny status to reassure the extended family that I was still there and to post tumblr blog entries elsewhere but no-one reads them anyway so who cares. So I figured I could probably deactivate my account and no-one would be particularly fussed about it and well it’s been a week and no-one is particularly bothered about it. Neither do I miss it really I mean of late I found it particularly boring to use and with family members also keeping tabs on me it felt kind of weird and frustrating to have to censor and restrict myself from posting what I really wanted to just in case I offended anyone that I would eventually have to face.
Hopefully now I’m not wasting so much time on it I can hopefully concentrate properly on writing, blogging and other hobbies of mine that fell by the wayside because I was too busy caring about what other people were whining about or what they were gossiping about. So all in all I’m pretty happy that I got rid of it. I don’t miss using it or just staring at it for hours on end.
Anyway I hope to posting more regularly now and I’ll aim to be more interesting in the future as well instead of just aimlessly rambling about a whole lot of nothing.
