The Nightly News boggles my mind from time to time. Last night, it made an honest attempt to make me feel like I had a problem.
What was the problem? Addiction to facebook.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. So I check my facebook page about a million times throughout the day. You would too if you had a facebook page (and if you DO have a facebook page, don't even try to tell me that you don't check it every other minute...cuz your nose would totally start growing!).
The interesting aspect of the story was noting that respectable researches believe facebook was a healthy self esteem booster (HA! See? It's not a BAD thing!). The story also went onto to say that face to face interaction was still integral.
Since I'm stuck at home 95% of most evenings, I don't get a lot of chances for face to face interaction with my friends. However, I still am able to chat on the phone quite a bit. I share inside jokes, good laughs, and funny details from my day.
Long story short, I really appreciate the people in my life right now...be it from facebook, or from the real world. They constantly remind me how great it feels to laugh until your tummy hurts.
