Getting Sucked Into Your Timeline

I’m on Facebook a lot because I’m a product of my time. I make statuses, I check into places, I post pictures, I share articles, and I get tagged every single day. Every once in a while, I will log on and check out my profile. It’s like looking at your life from an outsider’s perspective. You’ll start looking at what other people have posted on your wall, and you’ll eventually start looking at old pictures. We don’t have actual photo albums anymore. Instead we have Facebook Timeline. It sucks that it’s not tangible, but it’s better in a lot of ways. You’ll stumble upon a picture of you and a group of friends that you never see anymore in a place that you never go to anymore. You’ll feel nostalgic and you can instantly tag them or message them to remind them about the glory days. It tells you when it was posted, so you can reflect on how much shit has changed since it was taken. Then you’ll click on another picture of another group of forgotten friends in another forgotten place. Then you click on another picture, and another bunch of memories come flooding back. Before you know it, three hours have passed and it’s time for bed. Getting sucked into your timeline is like picking up your yearbook from senior year, it’s a trip down memory lane.

Catching Up With An Old Friend

You meet people, you form friendships, and sometimes you drift apart. It’s nobody’s fault, it’s just a fact of life. In the old days, they would just be a distant memory. Nowadays, Facebook makes sure you know when their birthday is. At least once a year you can post a message on their wall and reestablish contact without being a creeper. Then you will inevitably make plans to meet up and hang out like you did in the glory days. Catching up with an old friend is one of the best things in life. Especially when you can just pick up a conversation where you left off, despite it being months or years since you’ve last seen each other. You might not hang out all the time now, but they are always there for you.
