First off, let's begin this post by saying I should not be posting. I have one child who needs to go to bed (the youngest who refuses), homework to do, and a kitchen that is begging to be mopped. However, procrastination sounds so much more fun. I have been methodically searching for a new truck on craigslist, reading blogs from classmates that don't know I read them, and wasting precious life moments on the facebook. How's that for a fun time? While doing these things, I began to wonder, have we as a society lost our privacy? I mean, I can read all about the aforementioned classmate's life, while she literally has no idea that I think she is so much cooler than me, and I wish I could be her. I always wanted to be the cool chick. This is not in my destiny. As for facebook, I can look up people for hours on end, with no repercussions. Fun stuff!! Who hasn't looked up an old boyfriend or two (or all of them, let's be honest), or the girls who you really hope are now fat. I have, and I am only ashamed to admit it most days. Whatever happened to privacy? There are some things that need not be said, and while I appreciate getting updates on life, jobs, kids, etc. from various social sites, it is not the place to put the little details of your life that should remain private. It is like the phone. You don't always have to answer it, that is why caller id was invented, and it does have a power button. Sometimes, I just want an entire day of privacy, anyone else?
