The online world.....

I'm hesitantly coming back to the online world. I'm slowly coming to a couple of conclusions.

It's not what it once was to me.

-My blog is not a refuge. My last blog was utterly destroyed by someone who hates. He hates me he hates my friends and he goes to any lengths to hurt me. I had to burn my blog and my twitter accounts and my facebook just to make him leave me alone. I had to laugh when the police detective said "Now make sure you unfriend him from facebook" lady- please. I unfriended him long before all of this started. He is the one that was/is cyber stalking me! My blog that I had through-out my (very) troubled and turbulant years is contantly haunted by him. He can't see what I post as it's locked to only those I choose, but I see his IP address popping up there every day or every other day. Dude, I have not spoken to you in over a year- leave me alone.

-Facebook annoys me more than anything. I realize there are maybe 15 people I talk to on facebook. I am slowly trimming down my friends there. I am sorry but "Chelsea" who I have not spoken to since grade 11 in HIGHSCHOOL, I have no idea why you are on my facebook, and I have no desire for you to be there--DELETE. Same for the random ex I added because I was curious as to what he was doing, not curious any more since he is happy and I am single and miserable *sigh*-- Delete! Oh and bitchy girl who I hated in university and was only friends with on facebook becuase I had to be for school, I don't care if you just broke up with ANOTHER guy, (who let's face it was a loser to begin with). I hate that you whine that you're fat, because you're not. I do not need to see yet another photo of your "dream" wedding-- DELETE!
Actually this cleaning out facebook thing kinda makes me feel good!

-Having a public twitter account sucks sometimes. I have several accounts. I burned a few after my ex got a hold of them. I still have a few more. One in particular is a very public account set up to promote my writing. Basically my idiot of an Uncle (no really! He totally is... he wants to be a "writer" and is going to self publish because "the big bad! publishers just don't understand his genius!" oh and also he's working on getting his first film made.... O.o... anyway. He tried to get my dad onto twitter so that he could "Talk" to him easier. My dad hates facebook, twitter and social media sites in general. He just doesn't understand them. He was mad at me when I didn't put together a photo album for him to look at of my trip to Europe last year... oh dad they're all on facebook. Anyway his brother (my uncle) has been hounding him to get a twitter account. As my dad has a blackberry (from work!) so he clearly can have twitter for blackberry and have epic and amazing conversations.... right...! ( My dad loves his little brother but there is a reason they live on opposite sides of the country!) My dad's work blackberry is military issue. Meaning, no BBM, no camera, no apps, nothing but e-mail and his newest one he finally got a very restricted google search page. So yeah twitter not happening. That hasn't stopped my uncle from hounding my dad to get twitter on his blackberry. Anyway so my dad asks me to talk to my uncle via this "twit thing" to tell him thanks but no thanks. I do and he gets all up in arms. Then he discovers that my book is coming out in May 2011 July 2011 and is all "You are a member of the main stream publishers here me roar" and says in his tweets (basically), "My niece @CommunityRN* is getting her book published by the big evil publishers and you should all tell her how wrong she is to want to be published by a genuine company. You should all tell her to break her book contract and how she should be anti-establishment like I am"

RIGHTTTTTTT so hello spammers which would be ok except that a certain person I want NOTHING to do with (and I mean nothing) follows his twitter page (and no not my ex this time!) and thanks to him being an ass now has my twitter account name. URGH. So not happy about that right now.

-People who I used to talk to/be involved with online. Have moved/changed/are just different from me. I think I've grown up-A LOT, but there are some people who are there obsessing over the same thing they were obsessing over 5 or 6 years ago. Hello problem. I've moved away from online fandom and am now focusing on my writing. Which after a rocky start is starting to show some progress. I finished my second novel and trying to wrap up the sequel to my debut novel and a sequel to my second novel. Not to mention a Christmas novel and a Christmas short I am working on + a number of other projects. Writing is my life and I love it.

-online dating sucks, that being said I have had more luck in the online dating world than the real dating world. Oi! my life is confusing, I enjoy living the life of a hermit writing like mad and living in starbucks, but damn I missing having a boyfriend. Really need to get me one of those...

Ok due to a delayed plane (not mine!) I am not working tomorrow. Which is a good thing since I am dead exhausted after a work trip to Toronto last week(more on that in another post) then working straight hours after. I think this is my first day in +2weeks I am totally off. Woohoo!

Also in an effort not to burn out I am planning an impromptu trip back to Halifax for the first full week of June!!! I am so excited. I just hope it all works out. I miss the Maratimes and Halifax alot! I can't wait to go back and say hello to the old girl!

Ok that's it for now i'm dead exhausted and I just got off of work! night-o!

  1.'s good to "houseclean" the FB every once in a while! I not only have deleted some people but I have blocked some as well.

    Good on ya for your writing! I am envious! Very prolific of you! :) Would love to read it sometime!

    I know how you feel re: the lonely minus bf issue. That will pass. There are waaay better things than male company. Like - a book.;)

    I met my husband (online dating!) at age 50 and I would say that's about right as far as the right age to be with a guy. Honestly?

    Relationships are highly overrated.
