After years of thinking Facebook was the end-all beat-all of social networking, I’m a bit fed up with “society” as a whole and really need to get back to what I used to love… BLOGGING. Facebook, although entertaining and a great avenue for my venting/cheering/humor/photos, has left me a little empty on the human connection side of life. Odd, really, if you think about it. I had a decent amount of “friends” … most of which I never saw or heard from outside of FB. To call them “friends” is quite a stretch since very few of them know anything about me on an intimate level, and isn’t that what we’re all looking for in the long run?
Recently, I’ve realized that I need a real life, a hobby or two, and some real friends with some substance who also bring something to the table and treat me with some priority like I do everyone else. The people in my life that I thought were friends, and whom I put on a pedestal regularly, are the same people who could give two sh*ts about me, my life, the people in it, or anything else about me. I’m barely a second thought to them.
I know this sounds like whining, and maybe it is… maybe I should be going to a counselor and wasting tons of money on some jack wagon to analyze me based on what little information I choose to share with them. I find that writing down what is going on in my life tends to open my mind up to resolutions that I can’t seem to come to on FB. In a nutshell… FACEBOOK HAS DUMBED ME DOWN AND DOES NOT WORK FOR ME RIGHT NOW. In the MYSPACE days I had TONS of followers on my blogs and it felt good to let go of stuff when I was done writing. It was very freeing for me. I pissed a lot of people off, made them laugh, made them cry, and gave them a view into my world and an opportunity to see things from a different and unique perspective.
So here I am. This will get some getting used to, since I haven’t done this for years. Bear with me as I get started.
