For My First Act: The Facebook Hiatus

6 Jan

Last Friday was a strange day for me.  Some good things happened like a promotion but something bigger happened that evening.  I decided to take a break from Facebook.  For some people that want to roll their eyes at that last statement, let me explain that I could be described as a “Facebook Queen.”  It is where you could find me 9 times out of 10 and it is probably fair to say that I haven’t missed a day of posting in almost four years (yikes!).  I was driving home a few weeks ago and “Haunted” by Beyonce came on and the words, “All this shit is boring, all the shit I do is boring…” and the first thing that came to mind for me was Facebook.  On Friday, I went back and looked through my timeline and it was pretty much the same stuff I say every day combined with some shared articles.  This is all stuff I could do on by blog or in person.  For the most part, I just needed a break because like I said, I have been Facebooking non-stop since The Boy was born.  I’m still on Twitter from time to time and though time is ticking on my Instagram, but I can be found there too.  I don’t know how long I am going on hiatus, but I know it’s going to be awhile because Saturday night I had a nightmare I logged on to Facebook and I was disappointed with myself for logging on…soooooo, who knows?

It’s cold like shit. I have never had to live or survive in anything below 20 degrees.  It is going to be so cold here tomorrow that they are closing the schools!  I am not built for this life at all and I am looking forward to the weekend when it is supposed to get back to humane temperatures.  For tonight, I will be breaking in my fireplace because if there was any night it was needed it is tonight.  Stay warm folks!
