Cutting ties and starting anew..
What a very, very LONG day! It's funny the unusual things that happen through the course of the day that you don't expect when you wake up. But, first, Day One of Facebook hiatus is completed! Made it a whole 24 hours without it, and with the exception of automatically thinking, "Day one of Facebook free, how freeing and interesting this will be" in Facebook status form this morning while I was getting ready for work, I didn't have much of an urge to sign on. This could be easier than I thought! Which brings me to the the other somewhat (but not really) related events of the day. I traded my old phone number for a brand new one. After drama events found their way into my inbox, it pushed me to make the decision that I've been contemplating for while to change it. At first, I didn't think I'd be able to afford it right away, when I called customer service, they told me that it would cost $36 dollars to do! I was texting my friend Tab about it, and she said to hold on and she'd talk to her buddy who apparently works at the At&T store in the mall. When I got off, he told her to tell me to go into the store and he'd take care of it for me. Less than a half hour later, I was all set with a new number, for free! A half hour after that, and I was in the middle of helping her hold up the counter at her job, chatting away. :-) She's cool, I like her. And she's 'what you see, is what you get'. I need more friends like that! After I finally made it home, I whittled down the people who actually have the ability to reach me by phone down to a mere 14 for now.. and I think that that will be good. Others I see at work, and people also have my email address. I figured this would be the best time to cut ties with benefit-less relationships, creeps, stagnant friendships and people that tend to try to bring me down. And now, I figure it is time to curl up under my covers with my furballs and sleep, sleep, sleep! Did I mention it was a very, very long day?
