Most of you don't know me on Facebook. A few months after I started blogging, I decided to keep my blog life and Facebook life separate. Too many co-workers on Facebook.
But I am a bit of Facebook addict.
Status updates. Farmville. Constantly trolling people's profiles and pictures.
After our Pastor preached on fasting a few Sundays ago I decided that I would fast from Facebook. His message was that you don't have to fast from food, you can fast from something else that consumes your mind, time, and attitude.
I realized that most of what I do on Facebook centered around either making myself appear awesome/pretty/"having a way better time than you" or looking at other people's status and profiles wishing I was as rich/pretty/"having as much fun as them."
And Facebook is this huge time suck.
I know Twitter and blogging can be a time suck too -- but they don't suck me in the same way. And they don't produce the same feelings of envy or eminence. Does that make sense?
So what I am doing with my new-found Facebook-free time?
