Of Facebook and Reality

A friend expressed concern that I was getting addicted to Facebook. He said that I shouldn't get too involved, express myself on the highly addictive website. That people are not themselves, not genuine online. That I should not form attachments to people based on what is 'said' and 'done'. I understand what he means. But I am not addicted to it. I do enjoy it, for sure. There is no way going around that. I enjoy being a Pirate, bombing my mates and stealing their coins then burying them on the island so that no one steals from me. I enjoy 'buying' bags that I have no intention of purchasing in the real world. I like to pick fights with friends for the most silliest reasons just to see the icons slapping each other's faces. Call me immature perhaps, but addicted? No way!

I still go on with my daily routines. There's work, gym, walks, outings with friends, chilin' at Chilis,getting to know someone. My life is not any better because of Facebook. My life is better because there are things to look forward to, like Fridays and holidays, good music, an opportunity to get my creativity on the road again. Life is fun because I have someone to talk to, to get to know, to annoy even. And after the longest time, I feel like life is alright. I am content. Sure there are the down days, but I get back on track. Not blogging about it doesn't mean it's not happening. It doesn't mean that I am still swimming in the sea of uncertainty or sadness. It just means that I have other things to do, and I don't have the time (and sometimes the energy) to blog about it. That's all. Simple. Not complicated. The end.

Now if u will excuse me, it's time for me to check out the Scrabulous boards and try my best to kick Sharky's ass!

Not having enough energy or time to blog is very good. It just means you have you hands full, and in life it's always a good thing to have full hands :)
