High school's never over....

So...just writing. I should be just reading.  My textbook. But writing is more fun.

Thinking about high school and how years afterward, it seems that Facebook can bring the drama of it all back in an instant.

In the movie The Jane Austen Book Club (I think that's the name of it) a woman is stressing about something and her husband reminds her that high school is over. She replies, "High school's never over!"  Facebook more than anything else makes me think this is true.  And I both hate and love that.  If that makes sense.  I hate that I can so easily be drawn in but apparently, there's a different side of me that experiences a crazy rush when the drama goes down.  The drama I try to stay out of but perversely enjoy watching.  I think the part of me which recognizes that I ought not be drawn in is the healthier side of me.

Just musings.

Does anyone else ever contemplate shutting down their Facebook? And then not do it?



Just Write

  1. I know exactly what you mean - and I'm just glad that we didn't have Facebook when we were in high school - I can only imagine how much trouble, and more drama, there would have been if we had it. :)
