New York

I used to play outside.
I used to talk to my family and share my interesting stories with everyone.
However, now, everything has changed.
I eat, sleep and breathe Facebook.
My basic routine consists of home, Facebook, eat, Facebook, homework, Facebook, shower, Facebook, sleep.
Usually, I am engulfed in the different statuses and pictures uploaded by my “friends”.
Like this, comment that.
Facebook ,I love you.
You let me express my mind and how I’m feeling.
Help me organize my thoughts.
If the laptop dies, you are still there.
Facebook Mobile.
You never fail me.
