A few days ago I deleted all my Facebook friends. It was not out of spite of anybody, but rather after a realization of how much time I was spending on meaningless conversations with people. The Christmas / New Years season is also my birthday, and turning 34 on Boxing Day I think it finally … More Quit Facebook – My 2018 Aspiration
