Avoiding facebook

So, I am again avoiding facebook. I’ve set www.facebook.com to in /etc/hosts on my mac and C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts on my PC to help remind me that I’m avoiding it. This time, it was a post of my mother’s that drove me over the edge.. I considered just unfriending her, but I decided that it would be far more productive to just unfriend the whole system.

See, the thing is, Facebook doesn’t make me happy. I think part of it is that people repeatedly post religious and political messages on it, and I have enough friends who are right wing for that to get incredibly depressing – but part of it is just that it’s kind of like reading a list of all the people who are having lives while I am working 9.7 hours a day (my average last pay period)

One bit of good news is that $LARGE_TIME_HOGGING_CLIENT has given me a week off in November and another in December. I’ve given a few days of that to other clients, but I’m currently hogging the majority of it for me.

Anyway, so, if you don’t see me on facebook, it’s because I’m avoiding it

    Just to make it clear, I *love* $LARGE_TIME_HOGGING_CLIENT. Their time hogging has also made me strong in ways I never was before. They’re actually the only job I’m likely to keep from my list of four. And they did end the time hogging.. they hired another person at my level that I can pass things off to and the end of the shift, which makes life a lot easier. I really think they are one of the best things to happen to me in a long time. I love them. I just have a complicated relationship with them.
