Trying to take some real, honest attempts to make positive change in my life.

My theatre work demands that I be tapped into Facebook, but I'm going to try and be there as little as possible.
It's an addiction and a time suck. Which is awful, because I've met so many wonderful people around the world in Austin, and this is the only way I can maintain any sense of connection with a lot of them. 
But when I feel a constant need to refresh a stupid webpage, I'm not making the best use of my life. 
Similarly, I need to get healthy. Like real healthy. Unfortunately, the only thing I can ever think to do when I'm not doing improv is to go out for food and/or drinks with people. Also, I LIKE drinking and I LIKE food. They make me happy.

Basically, if I had the guts I would give up Facebook, drinking, and eating out for a while. But I'm afraid that would make me completely antisocial.

But I also imagine that learning to go out, drink water, and just find joy in talking to other people would make me more social in the long run.

if you want to suffer with me and go to daily juice or juiceland and eat raw salad or juices for lunch, i'm up for it. we can grumpily eat raw salad together.

Host movie nights at your house! Or do potlucks! Have themes!!

I would do these things if my life weren't so weird right now. </p>

Heck, I should do them anyway.

Facebook is the devil. I miss it, but not really.

I mean, not a single person who always wanted to chat to me on facebook has made a phone call or sent me an email, so they must not miss me that bad. :-)
