Facebook-less

20 Dec

Upon hearing that we had to go without Facebook for a week I wasn’t exactly quite sure how I was going to be. My life is on there. No not to find out when the next party is. But to find out who is going on tour. Where boyband A is on his day off, how my best friend in Pittsburgh is, and so on. I also find a lot of crafts and project ideas for my teaching job at a daycare/preschool/kindergarten facility.

It was just as hard as I thought it was going to be. But not for any of the above listed reasons. My little brother. 19. Jeff. He is in the Marines. He is currently residing in Japan. No phone service. Only communication through the internet. Skype has been our lifeline, however with a 14 hour time difference, phone calls are very seldom because he has roommates that don’t want to hear his phone conversations, and we are usually sleeping when he can talk. Therefore, my brother and I communicate through Facebook. Whenever I got a notification on my phone that he messaged me, I opened up Facebook Messenger App on my iphone, therefore I wasn’t tempted to start going through my newsfeed.
