I just de-activated my facebook account. I've been thinking about doing it for a long while, but the amount of work I have in my life and daily nonsensical updates from my group of "friends" drove me to it. I love my family and friends, but the constant feeling of being in a large room with everyone talking at once finally pushed me to closing the door.
Now I feel like I can do my homework, work, and spend quality time with my family instead of periodically checking my driod phone throughout the day to her what someone is eating, how beautiful they look in their new profile picture, or how late they're going to bed. It's all worthy enough information, but if it was really intended for me to read, it'd been mailed, e-mailed, phoned, telegrammed, or delivered in person for me to hear.
