Last Thanksgiving, my brother convinced me to join Facebook (FB). With some trepidation, I started inputting my information, added friends, and even posted what I was doing. At first, I was slightly addicted to it, wondering what my “friends” were doing, and taking quizzes – my Aura is purple and the band that represents me is Journey.

I have learned to enjoy my time on FB. I log on only every few days now, instead of every few hours. The best thing about FB is connecting with old friends. Today, I had lunch with my friend Cheri. Cheri found me on FB. We haven’t seen each other since high school – 23 years ago! Cheri was my very first friend I made when my family moved from Chicago to California. We were both 10 years old when we met. It was great to catch up with her after all these years, reminiscing about our families, and telling each other what our families are doing now. What a great way to spend the afternoon! I hope this reconnection will continue and that our old friendship be renewed.


  1. I LOOOVE FB! It can be addictive, so you have to be careful, LOL! But I love staying connected AND finding friends.

  2. Thanks to the internet! I'm happy for you, finding an old-time friend. I wish you find more :)
