As a class assignment we were asked to stop using Facebook for a week. As with everything I was a little hesitant about putting my Facebook addiction on hold, but as instructed I did. After putting up my last post for the week, I was already wondering what I could be missing in the Facebook world. Pictures of the wedding I went to last weekend, my cousins depressing comments that I can’t help but reading and gossiping about, and everyones ever changing relationship statuses. To be honest staying away from Facebook has not been easy. The first thing I do after logging on to my computer is check my Facebook. All I have to do is type “F” into Google and Facebook it the first site that comes up. Even though I was sad about my Facebook break I got more homework done in half the time, I even found a new addiction. Pinterest!
