Seems like my facebook time is killing my blog time.
For some one over 40 that seems like a really funny statement. I'm in some kind of twightlight zone. Is it good? Is it bad? Is it just different? Can you believe what we spend our time doing? And that in some strange undefineable way its actully useful and even relational.. While sometimes it is distracting and escapist its also fun, enlightening and meaningful.
I had no idea how important that typing class in highschool was going to be...
The other day I said to my husband, "Is it wrong to love your phone?"
I can email, text and oh yeah occasionally actually talk to people on it.
So far I largely use it as a tool for efficently setting up face time with people...
Even that expression "face time", when I see those words it makes me think of when we lived in California. While I was very grateful for things like unlimited long distance phone minutes I also hated being on the phone and longing to just see my friends eyes light up or their smiles in real time. I didn't want to imagine it. I wanted to see it. I hope "face time" always remains important to me.
I think its one of the reasons I love facebook so much. Friends around the country who I would have no chance to see are "seeable" via their various albums each and every day. We get to enjoy much more than the annual Christmas letter.
Maybe the Christmas letter will die soon. Is that good? Is that bad? My bet the vote on that is that it's good.
I just have to get all my friends to sign up for Facebook and then I can journey guilt free through late November and early December without the stress of what on earth to put in the Christmas Letter.
Let the recruiting begin...
