I Hate Facebook

    I've now become 'friends' with

    so many people from work I feel frozen and boxed in, like I can't really post anything real about myself lest I be judged in some inadvertent way. Also, I'm just sick of all the 'my life is so great, look, LOOK AT MY BABY' stuff. It makes me depressed.
