Day 2 of being Facebookless

I had it quite bad last night, the first night of living without Facebook. I cried it out. No, I wailed. I sobbed. Quite dramatic really. Then I slept like a baby.

Today, I had many urges to update status on Facebook as if it's the most natural thing to do, which it is. It's so effortless to do so with iPhone. During the day, I used to check and keep up with my friends using my Apple. I only log in using my laptop after work in the evening.

Today, I survived a whole day without Facebooking, but not without any internal struggle. Frankly, I'm quite proud of myself for the achievement.

Stef, my colleague and personal friend talked to me about Facebook at the office cafeteria today during coffee break. She was very persuasive about keeping it and reminded me of all the good things about the wonderful Facebook. I was swayed a little. After all, my account is only deactivated and will only be 100% deleted after 14 days without activities. BL, also a colleague, said he likes my photos. (I miss Facebook already)

And then, there's Nick, another friend of mine and chat buddy on WhatsApp. He said this, "Don't forget. It's not just you keeping up with your page. It's about staying in touch with everyone else."

Oh boy, Stef and Nick probably had a chat before they come up with this logic, which is, of course, very logical. Or, maybe it's a classic case of great minds think alike.

I told all these wonderful people that I will give it 5 days. 5 days to think through again about the possibility of deactivating my deactivation of Facebook. We'll see what happens. *ponder, ponder*
