D-Day

Well, I guess it’s over now.

I am now going back into my daily routine of using Facebook. I have a queer feeling that I might miss this campaign afterwards. I think this was a great experience for me and my ICT classmates.

Before I log into Facebook, I would like to appreciate the technology that one has invented for the world. Throughout this campaign, I realized how different my life would have been if there was no such thing as Facebook.

YES!! BACK TO FACEBOOK!!  😀

Facebook Free – Final Day :D (Adrian Ho)

Well, we’ve reached the last leg of this long, drawn out struggle. I have, despite accuring thousands of little e-wounds, bloodied, battered and barely conscious, emerged victorious — standing atop a mound of dead Facebook apps, Likes, statuses, friends and minigames.

Just kidding.

This time I’ve got absolutely nothing random to write… I’m sorry! It must be those horrible withdrawal symptoms.. I’ll break any moment!

I did read the newspaper entry through Mr. Hamlin’s site… it was very well written despite that minor factual inaccuracy — that everybody in the class used Facebook religiously, or something to that degree. Ironically, the gentleman included a small entry from my own blog post… and out of context it sounded like I genuinely cared for my Facebook, that it was a huge relief that I’d taken it down, and that I’d used it a lot and relied on it a lot.

Apart from that, Everything went better than expected, despite my lack of expectations in the first place. It would have been a very interesting experience to… experience a weeklong Facebook-free life as somebody who relied on it a tad bit more than I did. Seeing  as how it would be analogous to denying me the blissful, escapist pleasure of playing vidya games, I doubt I would have lasted very long. So many hats off to those resolute scoundrels who held the line in the face of social networking!

But who would know? Maybe a week without games might have positively impacted my studying habits, or maybe it would have made me think about how much time I was wasting staring at a computer screen for hours. Not that I’d do anything else,  to be honest.

It’s been an interesting week! And despite all of the fascinating twists and turns, it’s a bittersweet end to Facebook Free. Now all of you socialites can leave the realm of Facebook-free and rejoin the slavery that is Facebook.

Hopefully for you people it was interesting living the life of a social-networking-deprived social deviant,  playing video games (working on your gaming tan at that), snorting at your various memes and in-jokes as the world passed by without you. For a week.

Last of the Epic test

 Well, its been an a normal week, and my feelings have been quite average. It did not seem change my lifestyle, and I think I will probably steer clear of facebook for another week or so. Maybe I can be the person with internet access to facebook that has not gone on Facebook for the longest period of time. I do believe that taking some time off facebook can be good for the mind, since the habit of going on facebook everyday is not the best way to spend your time. I thought this was a good exercise that give me insight on what people really thought about facebook and this infomation I know I can and will recall as a great example of a successful event.

So long and and thanks for all the news!

The final day :S

Well, it’s finally the final day of this week. There hasn’t been any real changes to my daily life, except for the fact that I’m writing this post every now and then. To be honest, yet again, Facebook hasn’t really been much of an issue since I don’t use it too often. I guess I’ve enjoyed writing these blog posts since they help pass time and provide me with work from an mildly educational standpoint. Well, if I could do something better I would probably go for it, but unfortunately it’s class and that’s just life. It’s been nice knowing you all, for anybody who actually reads this on a daily basis…

Farewell!

Final Facebook Free XIII

That was the most horrible week I’ve ever had. I felt like I was shut off from the rest of the world, forever alone; being home alone really did mean being home alone. Any attempts of communication could be only directed at a nearby wall, and possibly some random stranger on the other side of the wall who happened to be listening in for some reason. Is that what this Facebook-free challenge intended for me to do; for some creepy, random stranger next door to stalk me in my own home?

But in all seriousness, this week resulted in little change for me, and probably for anyone else I know in my class here (especially since most of them are in the same situation as I, and do not even own a Facebook account- or at least have a forgotten, disabled one).  I should have probably followed my previously mentioned challenge instead from the beginning of the week, which would have impacted my life a lot more than this.

I can’t be complaining here, though- this week has been a great week, full of unexpectedly awe-inspiring test results, little to no work every day, and most importantly, quite a lot of free time in the computer class (I’m still doing my best to finish them, I swear).

Everything went better than expected.

Day 5 – D-Day

All is in peace at last.

I am allowed back on Facebook soon, and I will join my friends in the cyber world once again! No more feeling behind and “not up to date.” 🙂

I have learned that I actually can spend less time on Facebook if I choose to set my mind on it. That way, I can actually conserve the time and use it somewhere more…efficient, such as doing homework and getting more sleep. I have decided that I will no longer be constantly attached to it.

The past few days have been hard – especially the first two days. BUT! I’m proud of myself for holding out.

Good bye, “Torture,” and hello FACEBOOK! 😀

Facebook Free – Day 5

Today is the last day of our Facebook free campaign and at the end of the day, I will be on Facebook for hours once again. Even though I lasted 5 days without Facebook, I am very eager to go back onto the site. Honestly, I felt like the week went by really fast, mainly because I had a lot of studying and homework that occupied me. I had a quiz on Wednesday and test this morning. With Facebook out of the question, I was able to spend more of my time studying without zoning off into Facebook half the time. Also, because I was not allowed to go on Facebook, I went to bed earlier which felt really good and comfortable.

This week has been very interesting and I hope I will take out what I learned from this experiment. 😀
