Facebook fast one week out

So far in being away from facebook I've found that

  1. I'm more contemplative
  2. I'm more plan focused
  3. I'm less grumpy
  4. I'm actually kind of decent at my job
  5. I think about what I'd like to write about
  6. I think about what I'd like to think about

At this point I see no negatives to my absence from FB.  I'm more social and less irked.

Guess what we found?

That's right, we found our snapshot camera.  It was lost in the little glove box under the passenger side seat.  So here we have the pictures from that snapshot of time.

Some blooming stuff from our house:

Darwin Day fasting

Yesterday was Darwin Day.  It was also some other sorta kinda memorial proceedings called 'Lent'.  As in I lent you my lawnmower and now I forgive you for never returning it.

In honor of the spirit of evolution and giving up things, I have hereby stopped using FaceBook until Easter, or bunnies with candy come to my door.  The reasons for this are simple.  I'd like to find out what 'value' FaceBook adds to my life.  I've had a hard time figuring out what that value is.  It seems to make me short-tempered an intolerant.  It's also kept me away from producing any original content or curating my families photos.  Those two things seem more valuable to me than kitten/games/dumb repeaters.

Let this be the first day of the rest of my internet life.
