For a few years I’ve found free to air TV to be painful. One time while holidaying with my Dad I was bored and resigned to watching TV – I was really surprised how shit it was. That can now compare to facebook, I don’t really use the website much recently, and I went as far as to block the domain on my home internet connection (instructions to follow). I blocked facebook for a few reasons:
- When I have a moment to think of something to do, looking at facebook can turn into hours of distraction with various links plastered everywhere.
- I don’t like comparing myself to others in an artificial way. It doesn’t really serve me to see all the interesting and cool things people I have met are up to – while I’m sitting in front of a computer screen (not standing – as I’m talking past tense).
So, I blocked facebook.
