So this is the beginning of day #3 of No Facebook. Yesterday went pretty good. The desire to constantly be on facebook is starting to dwindle. I use my business page but it doesnt work the way personal facebook does. I have found myself to be less irritated and more involved with my family. since I have alot of free time on my hands i have been doing arts and crafts with the kids and even worked on the family budget this month.

Day #2 with no facebook
I wasnt shocked at my level of withdrawal. I was pacing back and fouth for the first 30 mins of my day before I figured out that instead of pacing i could do something useful with my time. I have a hobby sewing business so I started to sew again for the first time in about a month. I was also shocked at the amount of room i had in my head to problem solve and figure things out since I didnt have a bunch of useless status updates or random information running through my head. Its also made me more patient with my kids as Im not trying to look at my phone every 5 seconds and getting upset at them for competing for attention.

You would think that quitting something as useless as facebook would be easy right? Just turn around and walk away. I thought so too, I am quitting facebook for 1 entire month to see if I am strong enough to do it. I started my challenge July 1st at 12am officially. It is now 7:24am and the first thing I wanted to do when I woke up this morning was complain about how early my 2 year old woke up. But Since I had made a vow, I did not go onto facebook ( although I'm keeping my business page open )
I am taking a step back to find out who I really am these days. Not that I have ever pretended to be anyone else but myself, but I would like to know if I can still make friends the good ole fashion way.
Than I started thinking.... who cares how early I woke up, yeah maybe I would of caught the attention of another early bird mommy friend and we could of complained a little bit with about 2 sentences than that would be it, and to someone I don't even talk to everyday. I have noticed that some of the first thoughts that go through my head are status updates... like I will be walking down the street and think " I should update my status and say were I am going " Than I get back to that all mighty question. Who fucking cares?
Its not that the people on my contact list aren't my real friends, I have a lot of real friends that I see regularly, but alot of the times now when i see them, i start talking about something and they say " oh yeah I already know, your facebook. " and I'm like oh yeah crap. ANYWAYS. Than everything gets awkward and you run out of shit to say.
Facebook is most definitely a safety zone, a security blanket. Be who you want to be.
I'm not bashing facebook at all either, its not the creators fault that we are all weak human beings with a huge desire now to say every thought we have
Peace Out Personal Facebook.
