I think facebook is fun! It's more like a social thing than blogging is. I have heard many people say they like it because it's faster than blogging, but I'm not sure I can agree. On the one hand, yes, you can change your status and that takes only a second. Then you can comment on someone else's. And that's fairly quick. But on the other hand, you look for more people to be friends with, read people's notes, comment on their notes, do the tags you've been given, and BAM, you have just spent just as much time on facebook as you do when you blog!
Facebook has become like an illness for me lately! Sometimes, while I'm wondering around the house doing various tasks, I say to myself: Brandi is cleaning the toilet, or Brandi is making her bed. YUCK! I feel like Jeff from that Seinfeld episode. Remember, he is the one who always talks about himself in the 3rd person and Elaine thinks that some guy named Jeff wants to take her out, but it's really the nerd she keeps talking to!
I'm really trying to decide how much I want to embrace getting in touch with people I went to school with. I'm really curious what other people are doing, but I have some skeletons in my closet and I'm not sure I want to let them out EVER. So mostly the people I'm trying to get in touch with are the people that were more like good acquaintances. I figure that the people who I considered to be my "best friends" would probably still be somewhat around me if they were really my friends to begin with. You see, I lost contact with almost everyone right after I graduated because I went to Las Vegas for the summer to be a stripper. (jk- I went to stay with my dad) And after that I moved out of my house to go to college. Then, to throw a bigger kink in my high school friendships, I had a baby.
So, I don't know.
But, to clarify...I'm not giving up blogging. I love it! It's much more personal that facebook. I love reading other people's stories. I like sharing mine. And, if nothing else, it makes me feel like I'm at the very least preserving some personal history! :) I guess I'll do both. 'Cause I feel like they are completely different!
