Facebook: New York without the wear-and-tear

A week after I moved to Boulder, I joined Facebook. I quickly became obsessed. I was on it all the time. People told me I was keeping in better touch with them now that I was 5000 miles away. I'm now at 530+ friends, and my FB activity goes in waves. Sometimes I post 4 times a day (today was one of those days; I must be procrastinating a deadline), and sometimes weeks go by without a peep from me. But the best part of Facebook is that my life in NY is alive on it--although fractured and virtual, it's my old life, and it transforms every day the way real life does. I get to see my friend's babies, reading material, and humor--WITHOUT the commute, the smell of trash, the exhaustion, the overspending, and the guilt.
