It’s been a busy few days. So busy, in fact, that I breezed through a milestone I’ve been meaning to write about: my ten-year anniversary of joining Facebook. On July 12, 2007, I signed up for Facebook despite hesitation. At this point, most of my friends were on it (and telling me that I should get it) but, always the contrarian, I held out for a few more months. Join later I did, however, and before I could even realize it, July 12, 2017 also came and went.

 

I’m not sure what to say (I’m old? I spend too much time on social media? It is now much easier to track the progress or digression of our lives?) but this feels worth mentioning. Ten years is a pretty large chunk of anybody’s life.
