flashwildecard asked: Sam, you need to go back to facebook, because otherwise I have no one to talk to about what happened on The Walking Dead last night. And because I had to sign up for a friggin tumblr just so I could say that. If you need to I'll show you how to block everybody that sucks. Christopher Norton
I think that has less to do with Facebook and more to do with the quick downward spiral the Walking Dead is going into. That being said, I’m still watching it. But I don’t watch the zombie show to learn about relationships, just like I don’t watch Archer to learn about self defense, or anything with a Kardashian in it to learn about integrity.
But I miss your witty banter! I promise, should I rejoin Facebook, you will not be culled. I just can’t take the constant barrage of bullshit activity. “You had a kid? Wonderful! Call me or I’ll call you. Don’t change your profile picture to an ultrasound and wait for the rewards to pile in.” (See, this is what happened - I’m not a bitter person, but Facebook started to make me really resentful, so it had to end).
My life has been so much better, less stressful, and with more enriching and fulfilling relationships since I axed Facebook this summer. Every time I take a break it’s harder and harder to return, so this time, it may be for good. Now I write letters, make long phone calls, do road trips to see people, and pay attention to those who really matter most rather than letting them be drowned out by the constant buzz of activity on Facebook.
Am I criticizing Facebook? Yes. Am I criticizing people who use Facebook? No! It’s just not for me. And that’s what I have to say about me and Facebook.
(I do miss you though, and I really hope all is well, and I’ll try to be more of a presence in other online avenues! You’re great, Christopher.)
Uhhhn this one is for the ladies.

I’m so glad I just spent my time watching this. Fucking hilarious.
I watched this four times
A friendly reminder to take things slow, because sometimes they can get out of hand, like, really surprisingly fast.
