    I decided to take Facebook back tonight. I posted to just my college friends (no offense, unf fb friends!) to see who remembered their mailbox number. My small school had one mailroom and you had the same number your whole matriculation. It's so benign. People who NEVER comment or post are popping by. It's civil and stupid and it's just what I want fb to be. I can't erase my family's stupidity (I mean, I literally can't get fb to stop showing me their stupid shit and I'm not a friend-deleter generally) but I can try to just be the change I want in the world, even if it's just mindless chatter for 20 people. Instead of dreading what I'm going to see, for the first time in what... 15 months? I'm happy to check and read comments. And it's so trite. If it were soda, it'd be calorie-free. But I needed to connect with people I know IRL and not think everyone I've ever met is garbage.

    Over the past 3-4 months my FB feed has become mostly my UNF friends and all the new friends I've made recently through a fan-group for the Star Trek podcast I listen to. (The Grestest Generation, ST podcast, is not only a really great pod, it's FB group is full of some of the greatest people ever... seriously, we did a secret santa exchange in December and then I sent handmade cards to about 35 of them just for fun)

    Anyway, I kind of like it again because of that. I unfriended a bunch of people who were just too much, too toxic, etc... now it's just me, fan pages, and all my nerd friends. I hope it stays that way for a while.
    You don't have to do everything all by yourself.

    This is exactly what my Instagram is! I love it!


    I got rid of Facebook last summer. My only regret is WHY DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG?
