No Facebook - Day 2

Passing time while in travel transit but can quite boring. But it's just day two of no Facebook self imposed ban and there must be some other way of killing boredom. 

voila lets observe people instead at the airport.  Did you know some women in the name of fashion will wear ridiculously high heels and strut as if on the catwalk. Hey am cribbing.  I'll take any entertainment I get here.  While men will secretly immerse themselves in newspapers or the hand held devices but no woman would go unnoticed. 

so yes I did survive. thought there are so many times I inductively reach out to tap the Facebook icon on my phone.  But guys what I even removed the app from my phone.

No Facebook - Day 1

Staring yesterday, I gave up Facebook. I had no reason too, just put it down to boredom. I did not delete my account, however just got off it. Right now I have kept a target of a month. Let's see how it goes.

Those who know me, will also know what a technology freak I am. I cannot live without my smartphone and the compulsive need that I have to keep checking should I miss a single update. This got me thinking what update? I don't need to know what you are doing. Where you are partying. And how drunk you are. Or that your child has burped for the first time.

So when I posted my last bye-bye update this is what a few people had to say

Facebook is much a part of our lives. And I am not even from the generation who grew up with it. I was simply an early adopter. I think Facebook has been a part of my life the last 5 years.

This blog will now come to be a log of my daily rambling and survival techniques without Facebook. I know am sounding dramatic but yea sometimes it's just not possible to live without it.

So yes, starting yesterday there we like a million times I almost typed www.face... and pressed enter as it appeared in my cached dropdown. Damn! And almost every 10 minutes I checked my phone, on am impulse was going to click the Facebook button.

If you wondering if I got any of them withdrawal symptoms. Hell, yes!
And today morning I am still wondering what you could have been upto.
