I’m introverted and feel writing is my best form of communication. I find it a challenge to shut down while writing, whereas verbal and in person interactions are a struggle.

I used to very much so enjoy Facebook. I loved looking a cat memes and watching cooking videos of things I’ll never cook and getting a good chuckle from this or that, but nowadays it’s all about the politics and anger and violence on live streaming video. All of which I can greatly do with out. Up until a few weeks ago I would log in maybe once a week but recently I’ve had a good friend on the opposite side of the world I’ve been messaging back and forth with. I find myself looking forward to these messages therefore making Facebook worth it, and life changing, if only for that reason.
