Off the grid.

So last MOnday, I chose to deactivate my personal facebook account. That might be such a big deal but in today’s society, social media is used for so much more to be social. The main reason for it is because I was sick of seeing all the stupid bullshit that runs down my news feed. I already filter out many people so that I don’t see anything that I post up. I don’t care that you ate a bagel for breakfast… it’s a fucking bagel. I don’t care that you picked up a new sponsor for your car because honestly, your car looks like a god damn Sprint Cup car but all you do is take it to car shows.

I guess that day I was fed up with everything. I realized that I’m a pretty anti-social person and am pretty selective about the people I surround myself in and because there is no such thing as an anti-social network, I chose to deactivate it. I didn’t want to delete it because I will be back eventually, just want to take a break for now. I still have an account I created for work since well… I need it for work. I still am on instagram but find myself checking it less and less everyday.

Since you’ve read this much, I reward you with @babycheen getting his untz untz untz on.

  1. Yeah, I see where you’re coming from. I deactivated before and I was able to stay off for almost a month and I didn’t feel any desire to check, but the moment I got bored and returned, I got sucked into it again. Honestly, except for a couple friends, the only reason I haven’t deactivated again is because I enjoy looking at pictures in a group page for a Japanese classic car club, haha.


    • I actually filter out of a lot people that I don’t care to really see what they post. I have to keep my other account for work for admin stuff. But the friends list on that one isn’t the same. It’s been almost two weeks now and I feel fine. Taking a break from car show stuff too. If I go, it’s just to hang out and not for the team or work. Good thing we don’t do many booths except for Formula D and SEMA
