So I posted a while back about how I had taken the plunge into facebook. I have loved many things about it and have reconnected with some people that I haven’t seen or talked to for a long time. That has been sweet. It has connected me to people in town in a way that I wouldn’t have before either.
But in the last few weeks more people from my high school class have reappeared and it’s driving me nuts. It’s time for a little venting…
It’s the number one reason why my husband really didn’t want to do facebook. He felt screwed up in high school and thinks that FB is just like a virtual high school (“will you be my friend”) and certainly doesn’t want to feel that way again. I did not at all run with the “IN” crowd in high school (I know you are totally shocked!) but I wasn’t the biggest dork (at least I don’t think I was). I had some really, really sweet friends and tons of great memories. It was when I truly can say the Lord grabbed my heart. But, I was also crazy screwed up in high school with a eating disorders and just dealing with tons of family mess. All that to say, I’ve got good memories and not so good. And I definitely felt like I was on the outside looking in many times.
But now these people on FB are destroying it. We are all nearly 33 years old. We don’t need to invite only certain people to be part of the “coolest group of the class of ’93” who does that?? Argg! Makes me feel like I’m back in high school again or maybe middle school. I guess the upside is that I’m not going to see any crazy embarrassing pictures of me floating out there in my 1990s dresses and clothes and crazy hair…now that is relief!
And the other bad thing…it’s so crazy addictive. Like I need another reason to stay on the computer. I’m obsessed about email enough and now I feel like I’ve always got to check and see if anyone wrote on my wall!!!
Forgive my moaning, I just had to get it all out.
