Day 8: A Bad Habit

Today is an off day. Let's hope it gets better.

A bad habit of mine is Facebook. Sometimes I'll just open my computer, start typing with the intention to look up something or check my e-mail, and I'll look at the screen and I'll be on facebook. Insert Twilight zone music. So while I'm on the page, why not check it? I know it's only been five minutes, but I've got to have at least one notification by now! And then I'm drawn into looking at pictures and profiles and whatnot for an unnamed amount of time.

The fact that I have 500+ friends and will probably only ever talk to about 50, including family...blows my mind. It annoys me, and yet I can't bring myself to delete some people because I never know when I might want to look at their profile. Or it's those connections like "I went to high school/middle school/elementary school/swim class with them", and me being the nostalgic that I am, I somehow justify not deleting them. Maybe after this I'll go on a deleting spree.

Anyways, that's my bad habit. Sometimes I just deactivate my account for a couple weeks at a time to take a break. Kudos to facebook for holding me accountable to a lot more people than I've ever wanted to be held accountable by. :)

(annoyances aside, I know we all have our things we love about it too...)
