Face what?

Since the beginning of the civil year, I've been cutting waaaaaay back on my usage of That Other Social Network. I made a couple of posts to my timeline earlier this week, but haven't even logged in today. I find I'm missing it far less than I would have expected, and my mind feels a lot clearer. I am not planning on "giving up" The Social Network That Shall Not Be Named, but I do want to get a healthy distance from it.

For a long time I had the words, "I am not really a facebook person" on my LJ profile, and I'm looking forward to making that statement true again.

What I do want to do is read more, and read with more depth. I've finished working my way through 'The Ascent of Man', both the hardcover book and the video episodes. (I've been watching the latter on YouTube, but I plan to buy the DVD set as soon as my finances will permit, so I can own it honestly.) Also working my way through a second round of the Book of Genesis. Planning to start posting here on both of these shortly.

And I've been getting involved in Meetup groups with people sharing common interests. The stimulating face-to-face conversation is very refreshing.

Today was my last day at the job I've been at since last July. They extended my contract twice, but couldn't keep me on any longer; and I'm ready to move on to bigger and better things, so it's a positive thing all round.

Right now, I'm looking forward to Shabbat and the weekend!
