I love the internet. I’m really good at it. I love all the pictures of cats saying funny things. I love that I can go to the Googles and find out what most people under the age of 25 had for breakfast that morning. But the internet is full of assholes and for that reason I suspended my facebook account for awhile.
This has had very interesting results. I feel free. I’m completely unburdened by the knowledge that little-precious-snugglepuss took his first dump in public after eating a homemade cakepop. I have no idea how much you hate your husband/brother/boss/mother. And for my fragile ego, I haven’t seen 50 pictures of you looking 100x better in that dress I tried on last week that sent me into a shame spiral of eating 2 boxes of Tagalongs.
The drawback? I never know what the hell is going on!
Everyone plans everything on the ol’ FB now. Weekend plans. Day drinking plans. Flash mob plans… And I’m expected to know because I’m expected to be on facebook (if I had twitter I’d hashtag the shit out of this with #firstworldproblems. See? Good at the internet).
Anyway, it’s taken me some scouting but I’ve managed to find out about fun events in ways other than the obvious persistent pestering of my friends.
Behold! The bulletin board!
Look folks, education is important. And, the majority of the world lives near a freshwater source. Fun fact: almost 80% of people living in upstate NY do so within 25 miles of the Erie Canal.
