"Facebook Must Die!"

Leaha burst into my room - "Facebook must die!!" and then she turned around - Wait Leaha, why? I mean, I know it should for the multitude of reasons that I have contemplated to quit Facebook - why be on a social networking site that has effectively undermined the self confidence that I had in my life path, made me want to see what my ex is up to and spend countless hours searching for our mystery man on Tenth's group. I've cursed having to add people for the sake of politeness and had to add my father to my page and even had to block people. Why? Why have such an evident intrusion in my life, my personal space? I don't know, I know I'm not going to turn around and delete my profile, however I wonder at times why it's there - does it just exist to make me feel better for not staying in touch with these "Friends," or covering up the latent desires to eliminate all that was from my life - honestly it's been 8 years since high school and if I don't stay in semi regular contact with you - I probably just don't see the point, is that bad? Maybe or maybe I'm just an adult trying to find a space in this world apart from a teenage definition of myself - I'm not the kilt wearing girl, with short hair who day in and day out felt incredibly awkward in a sea of self-promoting, self-concerned housewives to be, wanting to be able to tell them all off, but not knowing how or the matter to do so. And yes I am aware the reunion is two years away...
