  • Mood:


I just posted on Facebook, and so in defiance, I also want to post on LJ even though I may not have anything to post about. Actually, I was thinking last night about, we had a super awesome week this week, and yet at the end of the night last night, I was sad. Without any professional expertise, I have diagnosed the problem as being one of social health, and I determined that Facebook is basically the equivalent of social junk food. It fills the time, and occasionally something will pop up that's interesting and makes you feel like you have a connection, but generally it's just empty calories with no real nutritional value.

But since I never leave my apartment, Facebook is pretty much what we have as far as social interaction. Hence the social health problems. And since I don't know what I can do as far as finding friends in the real world, the best solution I can come up with is to be the type of friend I want to have on Facebook. And that means posting. But I still don't like the idea, which is why I have come here in defiance.

We didn't post yesterday, either, because yesterday we didn't know if we were going to have plans or not (this issue would have easily been resolved if we'd texted or called the person we would have had plans with, but we sort of didn't want to deal with the plans, which of course is another cause of the social health problems), and we wanted to spend as much time relaxing as we could. We watched Attack on Titan, which, granted, is not the most relaxing anime to watch, and yet, now that I think of it, I feel like we're always watching it during times of high stress and/or fatigue... Oh well.

Anyway, my Facebook post was about visitors in Primary. Athena always hangs behind her class on their way to the Primary room, to make sure nobody gets lost, so sometimes the visitors walk in while I'm there playing prelude music, and they'll say, "How did our teacher get here before we did?" I tell them it was magic. The funny thing is, this has happened twice now, and both of those times I was wearing a dress of a markedly different color than Athena's. I can't really blame them for not having an eye for that kind of detail, though, because I remember one time we went to JoAnn's with Mom and Sarah, and we got separated, but Athena and I had finished doing our thing so we wanted to find the other's and I was like, "I think Sarah was wearing light blue..." and she turned out to be wearing a bright red.

That's when the little boys discovered what twins were, and they were super excited about it. I heard one of them telling their mom about it after church. And then we had to keep going back and forth to put things away and stuff, and every time, he was like, "It's those twins!" It was cute.

Today I'm thankful for having time to relax last night, Anime Expo posting the autograph schedule, the yummy strawberry muffins we had for lunch, king-sized candy bars, and having plans to go to Disneyland this week.
