Facebook

I’m not on facebook and am not a fan of facebook.  I find it to be impersonal and it promotes forming and maintaining artificial relationships. I understand that facebook is somewhat  harmless and that it is a way to reconnect with friends and stay connected with people that you would not otherwise.

Many have mentioned that facebook is safer then my blog as there are privacy settings.   You think that only your “friends” can see your page but that is not the case. I have always requested that folks not post photos of me on their facebook page but I know a few of you have (and you know who you are).  Of course you thought I would never find out since I’m not on facebook but see that’s just not the case. I know the entire cyberspace community can see my blogs but for whatever reason I feel more in control with my blog.

As I write this blog I think what bugs me is the “reconnecting” portion of facebook because I guess it seems that there are lots of “reconnection” between facebook friends in which you may have never had a real connection with in the real world.  How can you be “friends” if you have never had a real conversation with one another in years or for that matter ever?

Maybe one day I’ll change my mind and accept the request to be your “facebook friend”.  Till then I guess you will have to go through the hassle of calling, emailing and spending time with me versus posting on my wall.

Blog Neglect

I am definitely guilty of  blog neglect.  It’s tough being a housewife.  I didn’t realize how much time it takes to cook, clean and do all my wifely duties until I actually started doing them.  Kevin has been a champ with trying all my cooking concoctions.  I’ve discovered making beans from scratch, lentils and chia seeds.  I think I’m getting much better at my new job. 🙂

Seriously, I have been up to much more.  I started back to school full-time the second week of January and have been working on preparing my applications for professional school.  Keep your fingers cross because applications open June 1st and I still need to narrower down the schools I’ll be applying to and finalize my personal statement.

Other updates:

My New Year’s resolution is to be more organized; which means Kevin is being forced to be more organized.  I created a bulletin board to keep track of our schedules and spending.

My Best Friend, Jennifer, got engaged over the holiday season!!!  We went to a fun wedding expo to help jump start her wedding planning.  While we were there I got to meet Micheal Knight from Project Runway.  He was super nice and I should have told him to give me a call if he is ever looking for a petite model…lol.  I need help in the fashion department for sure.

Overall, Jan 2010 has been good.  Kevin has been busy training spending his mornings and weekends swimming, biking and running.

Married life continues to be awesome and any free time we have we spend relaxing together at home with Makya.

That’s about it for now.
