I've been thinking a lot lately about my relationship with technology/social networking sites, and I feel as though I've gotten a bit too connected....I think I've exposed just a little too much about myself. Not anything extreme, like my boobs (I'll warn you all ahead of time), but just displaying too many inane factoids about my interests or everyday life. I think it's really easy to get caught up with "events" that are taking place on this tiny screen while the real world is flying by, and I'll be the first to admit that I've done it.
Well, perhaps not to that extreme.
Also, my interests change daily, if not hourly, so most of the info I've had displayed about me on Facebook is outdated and I'm just too lazy to change it. With that being said, I'm going to do a major edit of my accounts on all of these sites: less personal info on Facebook, less Twitter updates, etc. I'll still be posting here, because while I wish I had the patience to write in a journal, my handwriting/spelling sucks and its easier to post neato pictures of ninjas and food and awful people on here than cutting and pasting them into a leather bound book (or in my case, one of those black and white composition notebooks) . In case I change my mind (or if in 54 years this thing still exists and I'm trying to tell quaint stories to young children about what I enjoyed back in the days before flying cars/time-travel/the zombie apocalypse and my memory's not so great) here's what my Facebook has to say about me:

College was more than a $30,000 sleepover for me. it was a $30,000 trip into the crackdens of gay hell.
wow.....i feel like this is one of those tv shows you watch for a really long time, and then stop watching for a while, and then when you come back to it you're just like, "wait, when the fuck did that happen"
I'll keep you posted on the quidditch world cup of my heart.

I believe our adventures in time have taken a most serious turn- Ted
"You see what a dull place the world would be without color?' he said, bowing until his chin almost touched the ground. "But what pleasure to lead my violins in a serenade of spring green or hear my trumpets blare out the blue sea and then watch the oboes tint it all in warm yellow sunshine. And rainbows are best of all-and blazing neon signs, and taxicabs with stripes, and the soft, muted tones of a foggy day. We play them all"-The Phantom Tollbooth
"The whole idea of moving to a place that has a big car culture has me apoplectic" -Tim Gunn (Finally, someone who understands!)
Me: Yeah, there's a very thin line between gay and hipster.
Matt Alvo: Yeah, there's also a very thin line between gay and retarded.
Yes, you will find true love. It will be a little more difficult than it was in Pretty Woman, but not nearly as hard as it was in Return Of The Jedi.-Eugene Mirman
