I’m going to give up facebook/twitter for a bit. It’s an odd decision to make since it effectively removes methods of communication from family/friends.
But sometimes it gets to be just too much. For facebook, it’s a constant stream of information, and it’s not even information from EVERYONE, it’s information that Facebook thinks I’d be most interested in. I need a break from that.
For twitter, it’s kind of an empty medium. Twitter on a bad day is very similar to writing a paper made from all quotes (retweets) and the chamber of echoing outrage gets a bit much. On a good day it’s a reminder of (and an insight into) what others are doing, be they friends or celebs.
But I need like two weeks where I can focus on what I’m doing in MY life right now. The last month has been really busy, and the social media was necessary to fulfill obligations there were to a class reunion and the like. That’s over now, so I can go two weeks without it.
Time to get some work done.
