So I want to start a little discussion:

 

For the past few months, I've been seriously considering deleting my Facebook account. The only thing that really even keeps me on there is the Messenger, but honestly I'm just sick of it. It makes me sick to my stomach to see some of the posts and the constant feeling of depression and sadness I feel comparing my life with others. The whole site is just one big 'f*ck you' to the mind. I really think my life would be a lot more simpler and less stressful without it. If anyone truly wants to keep in touch with me, they'll find a way. Most of them won't care. So I say f*ck it to those people, they were never really "friends" to begin with.

 

Has anyone here done it and how do you feel afterwards? Starting to realize more and more how warped social media makes our minds.

If all I watched on Netflix were sh*tty gore and horror flicks, I might become depressed and never want to watch Netflix again.

 

On the whole of it, Netflix probably isn't worth the subscription, but my view of it would be skewed by the content I exposed myself to. In short, Facebook is mostly useless, but your feed is also entirely up to you. I've carefully culled who I follow, so now I really only see interesting and enjoyable posts from interesting and enjoyable people and pages.

 

Political Petes, sympathy seekers, and dirty laundromats were the first types of people I eliminated and I'm glad I did. Then I eliminated the Best Life Evers because who wants to see your sixth boring trip to Fiji in a Mercedes that you make every year to fill the void because you have no imagination or intellectual interests.

 

So leaving Facebook doesn't seem necessary because being on it doesn't seem like an emotional chore.

I really hate most people that grocery shop on a weekend. Always people that take five weeks on an aisle with their kids running around and touching everything.

It's even worse in checkout lines. Sometimes in a smaller store, normally 6 people could have gone through in the time it takes for said person to pay for their stuff; meanwhile trying to hold their kids in place. Although when their kids are out of control, crying and wailing, makes it feel like a living hell standing in line.

 

I can somewhat understand, but when it's my lunch hour and time is valuable, not putting up with that sh*t.

Sundays are the busiest days. Come in like after 6pm or so and it's dead.

I work in academia (well, research administration to be precise) and I have never ever had FB account, despite the popular beliefs that social networks are good in my area. I don't even use Linkedin, happily and I have never felt bad about it. If you're feeling bad about FB, it's not even a discussion, just stay away from it for whatever reasons you have. To be honest, I don't use social media at all not because I hate it, but because I don't see any reasons to. I'm in touch with those I want to be and I don't have time to expose my everyday life on Instagram or scroll through the feed of FB (not that I'm pretentious, it's just boring IMO). I'm using my wife's instagram account to scout some locations I'm interested in from time to time and that's all interaction I have with modern social media.

Yeah I neither use social media, maybe some day I will start an Instagram account but only as a professional tool, lol kind of a public CV, I have friends that got benefits with it. Btw I think that in Instagram (and similar social media) you pretend to have an interesting life when it's just regular, but it's all about appearance. I scroll through the comments and the only thing I see is the same empty comments again and again. Needless to say that women that post hot photos easily get a ton of likes and gain popularity. Even in a same account you can compare a post showing body vs a normal one and you will see the difference. Social media could be great, but has now turn harmful for a lot of people, specially if you don't get the amount of likes or followers as somebody else.

Instagram is going to hide those features coming soon.

Last night I had a dream that I won £10,000 at a casino. The game was a cross between a slot machine and one of those Arabian derby ones where you roll balls up a gentle slope to get a mechanical camel to gallop across and win the race. The thing is, when I woke up I wasn't so much upset that I didn't actually win any money. Instead, I was more upset that even in my wildest fantasies I only win £10,000. Don't get me wrong, it's a tidy sum but it's not life changing in the long term. With absolutely no limits in the world of dreams, that's the best I can come up with? Winning £10,000? How boring am I that without restriction, my subconscious assumes my wildest fantasy is to win a modest sum at a game I've never even played before?

I usually don't remember my dreams, but one that kind of stuck with me was when I dreamed I was buying a car. It was an used 05 Civic. I mean, of all the luxury and supercars I could think of, dream me is driving in a Civic.

 

Maybe that's why I don't remember my dreams too much, they're probably as boring as that one.

Dreams about money are the worst. The realisation when I wake up and realise I'm still as broke as I was yesterday.

There has been this young homeless lady around the town where I live sleeping rough. The other Monday morning she was asleep outside the shop which is part of the building where I work. I kept an eye on her, watching her twitch as she slept throughout the early hours. I went up to the offices upstairs and got about 10 tampons to give her but I didn’t want to wake her and startle her and I have no idea what she has been through.

When the shop manager arrived the young lady had woken up and the lady manager got her a coffee. I went out to give her the tampons but she was asleep again. The next thing I knew she was gone.

 

I have not seen her about these past two weeks so I hope she has a safe place to sleep.

Yeah, I noticed this morning that the house has suddenly become colder. Time to turn the heating on I suppose.

Sort of broke out of my shell today for once. I'm a very anxious guy and that means it seeps in to my Gaming as well. Ever since I bought Overwatch, I've basically never touched the Ranked mode or talked in voice chat. Even though I've put hundreds of hours in. I've weirdly always been scared of being judged and having performance anxiety, even though it's just a Game. I finished all my Placement matches today and it was pretty exhilarating albeit very stressful. Honestly it was just nice that for once (even if it was just a Video Game) I didn't let my Anxiety get the best of me. 

 

I should start taking this approach more in real life as well. The first hurdle is always the hardest, and then you get more used to it. The anxiety never goes away, but I can feel my confidence building. It's just getting over that first hurdle is always tough.

I felt the same thing the first time someone invited me to a Party on PS4. It took me a while to accept the invites, even longer to actually talk on the mic, but now it's a natural thing.
