To most people this will be a surprise, to some a positive one, others may be disappointed. Some may say I didn’t keep my word. Some others might be glad I didn’t.
I am returning to facebook. I have been thinking about it for a couple of weeks now, and the reasons are good. There is more reason in coming back and joining it than there is for not doing it.
But there will be conditions that time. I will not post pictures or at least not hundreds a month. Pictures will be selected and should not show me on the floor of a random bar bladdered as can be or climbing up a tree on a private property because I think I can fly. I have come to the conclusion that pictures like that do not seem to be funny to everyone, because there are people out there who lack a sense of humour.
And there are people who lack a sense of communication. In the past months without facebook I have received heaps of e-mails, but not as many as I expected. Some people just don’t know any other communication than facebook. I would like to call it the post-email-generation. Believe it or not, some people do not even have MSN, ICQ or Skype. And if they do, they usually forgot what their password was and weren’t able to log on for ages.
So anyway, back on facebook I shall be, months after my digitial suicide. I kept my word, acutally, because I did it. I never said I m not going to go back one day. In the months of living without it, I learned that facebook is not really necessary, but still a good way to keep in touch with those who depend on facebook.
I will go through my contact list and delete a few people though. So if you see an alert “Add Simon to your friendlist” after we had been friends already, don’t worry about it. I deleted our digital friendship for a reason. Sorry, mate!
Do you like this new layout? This theme came up new and I quite liked it, so I thought I should give it a try.
Yesterday I started work at 6.00am and worked until 1.00pm, then caught the bus to Casuarina where I was helping out in a stocktake of a clothes shop until 10.00pm. Another 16 hour-day. Today is my day off, but tomorrow I will start at 6.00am again and work in different environments until midnight.
I have been in the new flat for two weeks now. The place is huge, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two balconies. My flatmates are from Brisbane and not to bad to live with. I will stay here until the beginning of September.
Next weekend I will go to Kakadu National Park with my girlfriend. I booked us a fullsize hire car and were staying in a four-star hotel. Which will cost less than 20 Euros per person per night, since I work for the company with more than 4,000 hotels around the world.
Enjoy the weekend and I ll see you on facebook!
