Hey there, nice to meet you! I'm 26, engaged, and live in the Midwest. I love good books, bright lipstick, and spending ridiculous amounts of time on Instagram and Pinterest. Let's be friends!

Out with the old

Just went on a mass deleting spree on Facebook. Got rid of people I never talk to, ex-boyfriends, randoms from high school, etc. I'm down to 70-ish people now but whatever....quality over quantity any day.

I've been thinking a lot lately about how people have come in and out of my life. It's strange to think how I used to be so close to someone and now we never talk....or someone I just met within the past year who has become a great friend.

On one hand it's sad that most friendships don't go beyond certain stages of life, but maybe that's how it's supposed to be...different people for different times, with the select few that go from one stage to the next.

Or maybe I just haven't met that many people I've truly connected with yet. I always felt out of place in high school. College has been a little better, but I still feel like the odd one out most of the time. Idk, it'd just be nice to get past all the superficiality and crap and just have real conversations with people more often. I mean, I know people and they know me....but do we REALLY know each other, or do we know just fragments?

Anywho, this train of thought could probably go on awhile longer but I have 8am class and need to go to bed now!


  1. I JUST had a conversation with my closest friend about her facebook and clearing off a bunch of nobodies that don't really add to her life...she felt so great after! :)
    Love your background here - is it one of yours?

  2. I should do this one my facebook. I was just talking to someone about my real good true friends. I wonder what my facebook would look like with all the randoms gone? haha hmm? Maybe 10?

  3. Nadine-I actually found this by typing in 'background' on Photobucket...I have the username of who made it in either my profile details or my first post..can't remember which!

    Alycia-I have around 70 left, but that was still with people I don't talk to regularly!
