Interlude: Doing my Part


Yeah.  So I deactivated my Facebook account.  Its deactivation is hopefully just my first step to actually deleting it.  It became apparent I have absolutely no self-control.   I can't have shitty interactions with people and then pretend they are "meaningful" interactions.  Just because I know them doesn't mean I am having healthy conversations with them.  Just because I have "collected" their friendship doesn't mean I am a good friend for them or them for me.  

I am hoping this will help buoy my feelings of togetherness.  Facebook was destroying my insides.  People make me sad.  I think its worse to wish to that I did not have a connection to people because of the dumb shit they write (myself included) than to actually feel and be isolated or alone.

So if you want a postcard.  Comment here.  I will get in contact with you and we can trade addresses or something.  

Here is a first of many interludes...this is Postcrossing.  A website that enables you to safely trade a limited number of postcards with people all over the world.  It's a free service.  But you should donate.  You can donate money to them so they can run the site and put together programs for people.  I am hoping that deactivating Facebook might direct me to be a little more creative. Maybe be a better person in general.
