Facebook Fun

Can I just say how cool Facebook is? Since I've signed on, I've spoken to a bunch of old friends that I haven't spoken to in years. It really has been cool.

Today, I spoke to my aunt whom I haven't heard from in years. I've tried tracking her down in various ways and until Facebook, she was lost to me. I figured out that if I looked up my techie cousin Gabriel, I could track her that way. It worked!

Finding my Aunt Numa was huge for me. She is my mom's sister. To me, she represents my mom. My mom passed away when I was 19 and Numa was the closet person to her at that time. She is literally the only person in the world that knows both me and my mom from way back.

Anyway, the other people have been the ones that I've wondered "what ever happened to....". The crummy thing is that it also brings back memories of the less than mature things that I've done to/with friends in the past. So far, all has been forgiven or forgotten. Whew! I have some plans for asking forgiveness for a few things. Very cathartic. If I had a therapist, I think she would be proud of my progress thus far.

Now, how in the world do I keep up with the posts? I'll let you know...

That is so great that you found your aunt! What a wonderful connection for you.

Asking for forgiveness...reminds me of that show with Jason Lee, My Name is Earl. Funny!

Good Luck with that!

Although, I can't imagine you have much to be forgiven, since you won't even hurt an ANT!!

I love Facebook, too, Maria. I've reconnected with some old friends and gotten to know some new ones better.

What I wonder is do people really want to know what you are doing all the time? That part is a little weird and kinda cool, too.

All right, so I've been sucked into the FB thing. What I can't believe is how quickly the friend requests come in--myspace isn't like that at all. I've heard from people that I was pretty sure I would never see again, barring those inevitable Walmart reunions.

The jury is still out on whether I'm excited or not to be "in touch" with the past...I've kind of liked growing up, and well, away...
