Drawing myself out of the Facebook vortex...for a week

I used to have a life. I used to accomplish things. I used to be a writer, a yogi, a teacher who occasionally caught up on her grading. Heck, I used to be an introvert! Not anymore. Now, I'm a Facebook whore. And it needs to stop.

People, I have things I need to do. Like writing on this blog, for one. And grading papers. And watching movies. And doing something other than playing Zuma Blitz and constantly refreshing the page so I have the up-to-the-second updates on what everyone I've ever met (and some people I haven't) are doing. So, I'm grounding myself from Facebook. One week. I need to get my act together and stop using Facebook as my lifeline to an outside world I'm too busy to currently be a part of. I need to get my work done and play later.

Thursday, Feb 10th through Wednesday, Feb. 17th I declare myself totally grounded from Facebook. If I behave myself, I can come back on Thursday the 18th. If not, well, I don't even know what I could do to punish myself further, so I probably just better abide by the rule, right?

We'll see how it goes....
