For my Facebook (FB) friends, it may seem that I have blocked or unfriended you. I did not. I only deactivated my FB account. I got tired of the 87 million notifications every time I logged on. I would think, “I’ll only be 10 to 15 minutes,” and 87 million minutes later, I was still online. (Get the feeling that the only way I know how to say “a lot” is “87 million”?)
The other day, I was not happy that I had spent 87 million minutes on FB. My clothes had gone out of style while I was online. I had planned to be on for only 5 minutes. On impulse, I deactivated my FB account.
I love living my life on impulse! My plans for any day always leave room for spontaneity. Being “single” allows me to do what I want when I want to do it. This selfish behavior would not be fair to my partner if I were in a relationship. Also, if I were in a relationship, my conscience would not allow me the act this way. But since there is only me and the voices in my head, I can do things on a whim. The voices in my head never complain because I am usually doing what they tell me to do.
How long will I be off FB? Eighty-seven million minutes? Eighty-seven million months? Eighty-seven million millennia? Who knows? I will reactivate my account when the mood hits me.
If you do not block or unfriend me, during my break, then our FB friendship will resume once I reactivate my account. And then we can spend 87 million minutes, or more, together on FB thinking how we should be offline doing something else.
