I've spent some time, recently, in the decision of whether or not I should cancel Netflix....AND Facebook! Well, the decision has been made and I am no longer a member of Facebook, and I canceled my instant queue on Netflix. Wow - amazing huh? That's what I think. Why did I do this - well, there are several reasons. Let's start with Netflix first shall we.
As I was perusing Facebook a few weeks back (when I should've been doing homework), I found that my cousins wife Shellie wasn't on Facebook anymore. I was shocked and concerned. It was late, so I decided that the next day I would contact her and ask her what was going on. She informed me that it had become too much for her. Her constant Facebook perusing was getting out of hand, so she canceled her Facebook. Way to go Shellie, for setting the stage for me. After much thought and serious consideration I have done the same. It wasn't like I made the decision over night. I thought about all the pro's and con's Facebook causes me, and then decided to cancel. No more offending other people by comments I leave (which I had done recently), no more tagging pictures of people who don't want pictures tagged, and no more wasting my time spending countless hours looking into the lives of people I care and don't care about. Now that sounds rude, but most the people I'm friends with on Facebook already are people I have contact with by other means. The other people are just those who haven't seen me in years and wanted a quick look into my life right now, and by so doing they had to "add me as their friend." All along I should've listened to my Bro, "Facebook is stupid, haven't you heard of a phone?" Yes little Bro, you are right, I have the ones I love dearly right at my phone, or email. What else do I need?
There it is - I canceled Netflix (just instant queue) and Facebook. Now I'm loving life even more...or finding more to do that doesn't involve me wasting my time!
