It has been nearly a week since my last post. This is my confession-


I've missed you facebook!!! (I thought hell would freeze over before that day ever came)


My friends know that I protested facebook in the beginning. I liked "MySpace" (If you are old enough to remember that archaic form of social media) and I was all kinds of irritated that I had to move all of my content to facebook because it was the new trend. I am getting older and change is more difficult as my preferences are rather concrete. It took me years to adapt to cell phones, "Why in the hell do I need a phone with me at all times? If I am not home, leave a message. I will call you back!"


“What if there is an emergency!!!” was the common reply.


Are we really that accident prone?


My iphone is now an appendage and facebook has become the world which allows me my friends where time is lacking. I spend an exorbitant amount of time working, most of which is done in front of a computer. Even facebook is hardly social as I use it to promote my computer based photography business, my adventures in fitness, and as launching pad for my newest endeavor as a life blogger.  I am always chasing my white rabbit and most of us are busy. The internet keeps us connected. I sometimes feel “TOO CONNECTED,” like an invisible USB is my umbilical tether.


I have started taking time to unplug, getting face to face with friends in actual company. There nothing better than true interaction and real time connections. I’ve stopped reacting and responding to criticism or perceptions that I feel are inaccurate on the internet because I would rather spend my time with people who know me, no questions asked, “Amber, is just crazy; end of story.” I gave up trying to explain myself not so long ago, but there are some things I would have you know.


It is nearly Christmas and I would go broke if I bought each and everyone of you a gift to let you know that I care.


People of Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler, Pintrest, Ok Cupid,, Plenty of Fish, Millionairematch, Fat Secret (holy crap is there more)…. I do care.


I care in profound ways and I am humbled to know how many of you are genuinely invested in my story, and my life. I love reading your posts. I am thankful for the personal messages you send (though I often do not reply), and I love it when you post things on my wall that you know will make me smile. If you are one of those people please know that you do. You make me smile like a gift. I was going to send out Christmas card this year but I decided to update my status instead. This post is me wishing all of you the very best during the holidays and if the world doesn’t end on the 21st I am sure we will all have a CRAZY AWESOME YEAR!!!!!




Much Love, Amber
