So personal stuff came to a head early in 2010. Must be something in the stars, or the numerology of it, but right smack dab in the middle of the 2010 Olympics (and right smack dab in the middle of my exams), I’ve had to review everything in my life going back 7 years, and to get all the facts about me in order. It’s been a very overwhelming, gut-wrenching, and at times utterly paranoid excursion into self-evaluation, and it has tested everything. And I confess I passed the test and we will never sever.
Everything except Facebook, that is, though for unrelated reasons. I now have a reduced presence on that data-sucking, privacy-averse dump of a place. No offense to my many FB friends. It was a very difficult decision to make, as FB offers many unique opportunities to interact with people near and far. I understand why you stay there. I’m simply uninterested in constantly poring over the continually renewed privacy policies. Life’s too short for privacy policies. And what a dump.
I’ve been to hell and back in the past month, and I’ve dragged my family there and back too. It could’ve been a spectacular mess. But we’ve cleaned up well.
More on this after exam #2 is done and the situation reaches full closure.
