Back to the real world and things I love

Facebook can be like a self-imposed prison sentence if you let it. I love the fact that I found so many friends from my past that I have reconnected with and am thankful for that. However, I have become totally obsessed with FB and what's happening on the newsfeed that I have been forgetting to live life in the REAL WORLD. 

After sitting in a cube at the office for eight hours a day, I come home and sit in front of a computer for three or four more hours before bed, staring at a screen. Missing the last remaining hours of daylight and the beautiful sunsets, the sounds of the cicadas, the dancing fireflies after dark. I have finally woken up, as I had from religion, and have been rediscovering the things that I used to do. Like READING a book, and writing letters and stories.  I still check out the FB statuses, but have given myself a time limit, and going to try not to get sucked back into it for so many hours a day. Life is passing me by!

I got addicted to Facebook...

But I think I am growing bored with it. I have been spending less and less time on Facebook and more time getting back to my blogs and writing, and my hobbies, and keeping up with my penfriends and actually going outdoors to enjoy the sunshine more often! It's so easy to get sucked into the Facebook thing, and it is a time thief. Stealing hours and hours of time I could be doing something else that I truly enjoy.
