I don’t miss facebook at all. I used to deactivate mine to focus on other things like school or just myself, and I couldn’t help but go back to it. I don’t even know why. I wasted my time.
It really hit me how much time I spent mindlessly scrolling through my news feed and reading things that I didn’t care about 99% of the time. I spent my work breaks doing this and forgetting to eat my snacks. I would often open facebook out of habit, even when my intention was to do something else.
I’ve now lost track of how long I’ve been away from it. I think since April? I’ve not had any desire to open up facebook since. Only once did I reactivate it and that was to contact a coworker I couldn’t reach in any other way. I deactivated it right after.
I sometimes miss out on actual relevant event invites and updates, but the people who know me will contact me about it. I don’t really give a fuck about the rest of the party invites or anything else. I never went to them because I didn’t care really, but I’d always feel shitty if I didn’t get invited. I am so much more content with not having to think about what I’m not being invited to. It’s hard to explain, but I feel free. Not knowing and not caring is wonderful. I don’t have to be glued to my phone or laptop.
Ironically, I am on my phone on Tumblr as I type this. However, I do not feel the same about Tumblr. Not only do I not spend as much time on this, I also don’t find this as wasted time. I usually seek out art or food recipes or even legitimate and detailed updates from friends who I do care for. Same with Instagram. I genuinely enjoy looking at pictures of food (haha) and places. I usually just post a picture and that’s it anyway. I never spend more than 5 minutes on any other social media site. I tried and deleted snapchat twice. I don’t even understand the point of Twitter. Not interested in Vines. I don’t know any other social media sites, nor do I care. I will hopefully keep it that way.
