from facebook. or crackbook as i like to call it.
since july 11th. till july 30th. gave it up as church is fasting to prepare for one-church service on aug 1st which i will, unfortunately, not be attending given my present hide-away in the capital.
the first few days, it was strange. i kept thinking “oh, let me check…” but now it’s not even a thought. oddly it feels as if i’m less burdened. as if crackbook was becoming a responsibility b/c i didn’t want to “miss anything”.
so when this fasting is over, the plan will be to begin the limiting process. start removing photo albums. download pix onto my mac and del the albums. shut down my other mafia wars profile. stop playing mafia wars PERIOD. del basic info about myself; replace w/ funny comments.
must minimalize faux internet familiarity. b/c that’s what crackbook does. it creates a false sense of intimacy and connection. two valuable aspects of life that can not be usurped by virtual interaction. too many people think they know what’s going on –> minimal to no personal interaction.
don’t believe the hype.
