Pointless hypothetical ruminations

I've often thought that I couldn't have survived high school in today's society. Everyone with a MyFace page and cell phone, hyperaware of each other's "friends" and relationship status, or lack thereof... I survived 15 years ago with a bit of willful ignorance, and I don't think that's possible today.

But on the other hand, it might have been fun constructing an identity through words and links and common interests. Maybe it would have leveled the playing field.

This is what I think about when I can't fall asleep. Or else I try to figure out "Lost."

On the bright side...

I may have lost my health insurance, but I'm much calmer so I won't need the health insurance. Eh?
