Facebook Ruins a Generation

Remember the days before Facebook? I know crazy to even imagine- what the hell would we waste our time on?? I mean Facebook stalking is a common pass time for so many people (yes I'm totally guilty of this... but isn't the first step of addiction is admitting you have a problem?). I may be dating myself here but I can remember the days when there was no poking, tagging, and status updates. I've come to the shocking conclusion that while I am just as much Facebook obsessed as anyone else it has ruined the one thing that I had been looking forward to my almost entire school career. 
   My best friend and I would spend countless hours talking about the years that we had yet to encounter and the what if's and could be's. Always wondering who would get fat and who could marry the then jock now beer bellied loser. We always talked about no matter what life had in store for us we would always come back together for the long awaited High School Reunion. However now that Facebook is as vital as almost the air we breathe it has taken away the one moment I long awaited- the shock & awe effect of how my classmates aged. I know it sounds a little evil but please like we all haven't wondered this? Now we can watch the progression of someone getting fat or dating a loser. Now when that day comes for the Class Reunion it won't have the same shock & awe effect as it once would have had. Now my best friend and I will just be like, "Eh we saw that on Facebook". 
  While I'm not quite ready to give up my Facebook time it still brings a little disappointment to the once world of the unknown.
