At the moment, I’m going through a bit of a purging, as a friend of mine likes to call it. Specifically, I’m not allowing myself to log into facebook for any reason – I even deactivated my account. I am also preventing myself from posting anything anywhere online about anything political until November 1.
Why? It was just getting the better of me. I’ll get back to shouting out my opinions later on, but right now, I just need the break.
I’ve never really had much use for social networking. I deleted my myspace page about 2 years ago, and never really did much with facebook. This summer, I started to dabble more and sort of enjoyed it.
Alas, it was not to be. I ended up with about 150 or so friends, most of whom I knew a very long time ago and none of whom really know me very well. Most didn’t know me all that well when they did know me. Let’s just say I got frustrated by the small mindedness that exists.
I don’t care whether or not you agree with me, but one should always be open to the possibility that you might be wrong. If you can’t do that, I’m not interested in having political discussion with you. I most certainly believe I might be wrong in some cases, despite strong beliefs and opinions.
So anyway, for the next while, I’m going to try to get back to blogging about things that really matter – like food and family.
