Goodbye (Face)book, Hello (Real)book

Well, I've done it. I've deleted my Facebook account. Maybe I'm now the only person on the face of the earth without Facebook... or a cell phone (gasp). It's not an indictment against those who have those things. It's just, in my opinion, an incredibly narcissistic waste of time.

That being said, people can still find me on Facebook as Tim and I have technically combined our accounts - so if you need to get in touch with me that way, you can contact me through Tim's account which now says "Tim Anne Lawson". I don't check it much, but Tim will know if you need to message me or invite me to something.

Is Facebook evil? Well, not unless you use it for evil purposes. But in my case, I'm getting rid of something good in exchange for something better - more time reading. I've got to start getting through these books and magazines before I become buried in them. I don't want books that sit on shelves unopened (although they are like old friends). I've come to a revelation: books that aren't read aren't any good to anybody.

So, I can't be distracted.

Are there things that are distracting you? Is the Internet itself too addictive? Are you addicted?
