Because Facebook is not Life



Hey loves! Oh such a lazy Saturday. It heavily rains outside and I have to admit, I'm an utterly lazy person when it's raining like today. It's something about the dreary weather that makes me want to cuddle up with hot tea and do absolutely nothing. Also, my mind seems to wander more....to unproductive, irrelevant places..and once again contributing to my theory: rainy day makes me a lazy lady

So I'm just listening to some oldies, scrolling through tumblr, vibering with Ifo, reading friends' blogs, hearting pictures on weheartit...wandering aimlessly just like my mind . I should have a new name; Wanderer would be nice..like Wanda in The Host. Okay scratch that. 

I'd just love to share something I found in Thought Catalog. It's the 16 reasons you should spend less time in facebook. Did somebody just say "ouch"? I know this is an old cliche, but I think this is important for everyone and no offense, people nowadays have unconsciously spent a big chunk of their lives on facebook. Let's check out why you should limit your facebooking time:







Because you’re procrastinating doing work that's relevant to your life.

Because you don’t actually care about 75% of the people on your facebook.

Because rants are annoying and a day can’t go past without someone ranting on there.

Because you don’t need to know what's going on in that many people’s lives.

Because you don’t need that many people knowing what's going on in your life.

Because a lot of people are faking it.

Because 85% of it is useless information that you'll soon forget.

Because you’re comparing your life to what your friends depict their life as.

Because photos of sonograms and daily baby bumps do not enrich your life in anyway.

Because relationship statuses or a lack thereof don't tell you anything about the relationship status.

Because your ego is way too tied to your facebook interactions.

Because you’ll give less of a shit what people think and there is a lot of freedom in that.

Because you’ll spend more time and effort cultivating and maintaining real relationships.

Because you want to like people and have faith in humanity.

Because wouldn't you rather be living your life than posting about it?

Because Facebook is not real life.
