Welcome to Brupdates #16! Nothing too much going on other than getting into the groove with work, integrating Japanese better, deleting Facebook, and encouraging you to do the same.

Casual Monday if you ask me 😁

Learning Japanese in 6 Months: Week Twenty Two Update (2 min)

Began integrating daily learning with daily working compared with last week's total stop. Prayers for the job appreciated still :)

Why I Deleted Facebook (4 min)

I deleted Facebook, or at least began the 30 day wait period. Why? It just feels weird having it honestly. And having done it, I'm going to convince you to do it as well πŸ˜‰

Here are my cases for you to delete it...haha, told you I'd try.

Yes, You Should Delete Facebook. Here's Why. (10 min)

7 Reasons Not to Delete Facebook (4 min)

I put this here as a counter-part, but I have to be honest in saying I think most of the "reasons" are relational laziness. Facebook is lazy relationships. Biased? Me? Couldn't be (hehehe).

The Destructive Switch from Search to Social (8 min)

We use to use the internet like a library but have turned it into an escape.
