Star Trek Online

Well this weekend I went out and purchased Star Trek Online.  I played it for quite a few hours this weekend.  Since the doctor told me to get some rest I figured I’d rest on the couch play on my laptop.  So far the game is pretty fun.  The controls are still taking a little to get used to, especially when controlling your starship. Me playing this got Lee playing the Sims 3 again.  I think she was more into that then I was with Star Trek (which is saying something!).

So as for the Social Networking withdraw…I’m not feeling it too bad yet.  The first couple of days were weird but I’m kinda getting used to not seeing what 500 people are doing every 10 minutes.  Sure there are times where I would be a nice time filler but there are other things to do.  I do miss the interaction with people though.  I’ve been keeping touch with some of you via instant messenger and texts and what have you but not quite the same. 

Well my dad is completely moved out of Solvay and is now living in Albany.  I must say I’m not a fan.  Sure it’s going to be nice to have his town house with waaaay more room, a yard, a driveway, and a washer and drier, but he’s now living 2 and a half hours away.  I hope to go visit him soon after he settles in and what not.

Anywho not much else is going on.  Need to get with Lee tonight and put the discussion together for Thursday.  I have no idea what to talk about so I’m all ears for ideas 🙂

Day 1

So it’s been less than 24 hours since my “fast” began.  Already starting to feel the draw back to it.  Moments where I used to spend a few seconds checking my friends status updates are now filled with awkwardness (kinda like the spelling of that word).  I find my self wondering what everyone is doing…where they are…are they having a good day or a bad day.  I didn’t realize how much I actually interacted with people on social media.  It is the strangest feeling.  I will talk more later but right now I have to get back to work…Going to Owego for a setup and presentation…yay for car rides with the boss 🙂

A World without Social Networking

So today at sundown I beging my social network fast. I know it seems kind of a weird thing to fast but I feel like I am becomming more and more dependant on it. So far I have deleted the facebook, Twitter, and buzz applications from my iPhone. Today I will be uninstalling tweetdeck from my desktop and it will then begin.

A friend of mine on Twitter (@mom2twinsplus1) pointed out that during lent one can partake in the thing they are fasting on Sundays. So I think that I will be doing that…just to see if anything important happened…like how I found out my dad was moving(still somewhat upset about that).

So I will keep you all updated from here as to the goings on in my life (if you care to know) on here. I’ll try to update daily if not at least every other day!
