Where Have You Been?

Where the heck have you been?

I deactivated my facebook yesterday after deciding to take a break from it.  Could be one day, could be seven, could be forever.  I don't really know or care.  All I do know is that I miss it!  I thought I'd be fine without it because I literally go every weekend without touching it, but not using it during the week?  IT'S KILLING ME!  Not because I'm desperate to see those pictures of the person I haven't talked to in read life since the third grade.  Or because I miss whiney updates about life, or the opposite; the people who live seemingly idyllic lives with not a care or worry in the world. 


It's the constant flood of information that I miss.  It's only been 24 hours and I've found myself wanting to type countless status updates or message certain people.  No big deal.  The real freaky thing is that three time already I've found myself on the facebook login screen.  No idea how I got there.

It's strange to find that you do something on autopilot, without even thinking about it.  THAT is why I deactivated it.  Avoiding it is easy, unless I'm sat at a computer where it's always logged on.  All I have to do is click a button and I know that, "Roman is having an OK day, and bought a Coke Zero at the gas station. Raise the roof!"

"He got a coke zero again!? Oh, that Roman! Incorrigible!"

Bonus points if you know that movie.

I miss facebook not because I "need" it.  Not because I'm addicted to that little strange window into lives of friends and strangers.  I miss it because it's my go-to break from whatever else I'm doing.  And *that* is what this last 24 hours has shown me. 

Now, time to prepare for my super awesome weekend ahead.

Also, I'm addicted to Pretty Little Liars now.
