what the hell

A blog? What is this, 2002?

Maybe, but probably not. Lately I've been really trying to back myself away from Facebook, Twitter and the likes. I'm not sure why, but I don't know if I like the direction that those sites are taking our society. It creeps me out a bit that before we meet people, we facebook stalk them to see what they look like. I'm guilty of it, too, but just sayin, it's kinda weird. Also, I can't claim that a blog is sophisticated, but I can confidently say that Facebook is the opposite of sophistication. They keep redesigning it for the benefit of themselves, and not the users. Which is all fair, because they are a business after all. Facebook used to actually be about networking though. Now it's essentially just a site designed to waste your time, straight up. You have all this Farmville shit or whatever, people spamming apps all over the place, and sharing opinions that I frankly don't care about or want to hear most of the time (whoops I think I'm being hypocritical). I'm really glad you have the best husband in the world. I'm also really grateful that I get to hear your highly educated opinion of the health care reform bill, and President Obama. The only reason I keep my facebook account is so I can continue to see people's pictures, and occasionally people do post some useful stuff on there. But I feel myself getting dangerously close to deleting my account. Then again, I would be relinquishing the highly-coveted "habibi" URL.. maybe I can sell it on ebay.

At any rate, I have no idea how often I will be updating this or what the content will be. Most likely some random thoughts, my interesting and likewise uninteresting days, and maybe some music stuff. I can predict that I will update this frequently at first, and then slowly lose interest as always.

And it probably doesn't matter because I expect only a handful of people to ever check up on the blog, because it's not facebook or twitter after all.
