asdfghj reasons I am trying desperately to cut my fb usage. Do we really think spending hours upon hours at a time ‘interacting’ by liking things on there is an adequate replacement for actual interaction? What about all the time spent on the internet in general?
I don’t want to sound like a preacher, because I am as guilty of this as the next person. My internet usage for the last week has constituted over 6 hours of my days. 6. hours. That’s 42 hours at least in the last week. that’s almost TWO DAYS AND NIGHTS of just sitting here on the couch mindlessly interneting or watching TV. I swear one of the best parts of being in China was how many hoops I had to jump through to get to facebook. And every step of the way I would ask myself, “really? you’re really doing this for the 3rd time today?”
FUCK THIS. I’m stronger than this. Internet, I love you and your memes, and your youtube, and I DO think there are great advantages to facebook and the internet-dom in general. But I need to stop abusing you and actually GET SHIT DONE. I don’t want to waste my life and time away being one in millions of voices that in the end will just compromise one huge ANON unless I want to put my whole REAL life on here.
No I am not rage-quitting anything. I just… things have gotten out of control lately. I need to cut back on this addiction. I am abusing something that can be so RESOURCEFUL, and I don’t want it to get to the point where the only way I can ween off it is by shutting down my internet entirely for a month so I can come back refreshed.
But seriously, I think I reached a whole new level of whiny… whining on the internet about being on the internet too much. WHAT. lol. This probably reads a little… ridiculously, doesn’t it? Like, girl, if ya don’t like it here then you can just unplug the internet, srsly. But that’s my whole point. Why don’t I?
