Cutting out some fat

Heh, I wish it was that easy, don’t you? A lil snip here, a lil nip-tuck there — voilà. Well, actually, it is that easy, if you have the semolians. Alas. Anyway…

I have decided that, for the time being, I am going to bow out of all my social networking sites. Not because they’re not fun, mind. But because they get in the way. So, Twitter and MySpace are gone; I’m just waiting to close out a comment conversation or two, and then Facebook is bye-bye as well.

I’ve done this a couple of times before over the last 2-3 years. I’ve been asked, “Why don’t you just let your profile sit?” Two reasons: 1) an outdated profile would bug me to death, and 2) I’m not disciplined enough to stay away. So, out with the trash it goes.

I only have room right now to squeeze four things into my life: family/friends, school, Dinner Theatre rehearsals, and studying for comp exams. There is simply no space for anything else. (Well, except for RtB and email…those things are constant, like breathing and complaining about my salary.)

It’s not a huge deal. I mean, I’m not singing It’s a Long Way to Tipperary or anything. I just need to focus right now, and I have to cut out things that interfere with being mom, wife, Grammie, teacher, pal, writer, choreographer, director, and student.

Off to read David Elliott. *yawn*

Fink out.

I’ve never done Twitter or MySpace of Facebook. I just know I would be way to popular – bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
