I Grew Up a Little Bit Today

Before continuing with this post you must solemnly swear to not judge me too harshly, or to think too little of me after reading this (you can judge me, or think poorly of me, but find a better reason than this…I assure you I provide plenty on a daily basis). If you cannot make this vow, you must leave this blog immediately and not return until I post something less humiliating. “But isn’t she desperate for readers,” you may be asking yourself. No, the answer is no, I am not that desperate (I do quite enjoy knowing there is someone out there reading, but I don’t think I qualify as desperate just yet).

With that said here goes….

I cancelled my Myspace account today. That’s right. You read that correctly, I cancelled my Myspace account. At this point, you are either breaking your vow to not judge me too harshly, or you are utterly confused because you thought you had been reading a blog written by a grown woman, not a blog that was being written by a 13 year old girl. I understand your confusion, and I can help. Let me take you through this…

Several years ago (before facebook became the place to be) my sister in law had too much time on her hands, and she asked me if she could create a myspace page for me. I was uncertain at first, but I thought, “why not, I’ll get to see what all the fuss is about.” So she did, and I had one. It sat mostly untouched for a while, but as time went by I became more involved in my page; picking out a cute background, a funny quote, making slideshows, adding a few friends. Now, I don’t think, no, I’m sure, I wasn’t ever a hard-core myspace user, but I did have an account, and a page with all the trimmings. Is that hard for a 34-year-old mother of three to admit? Absolutely.

That’s all behind me now because I have officially cancelled my account. I can hold my head up high and know that I, a 34-year-old mother of 3 (one of which is about to be 13 by the way, which somehow makes this more embarrassing) do not have a myspace page.

Funny side note: When I was going through the cancellation process I had to pick a reason for why I wanted to cancel my account. “Way Too Old to be Doing This” wasn’t an option so I just checked the box “ Some Other Reason” and continued on my way to the land of self-respect.

Disclaimer: If you are reading this, and you consider yourself to be a responsible, respectable adult and you have a current Myspace account please do not think that I am judging you. If you love Myspace, then you should Myspace it up, get your Myspace on and be proud. It just wasn’t right for me anymore.


  1. LoL, I canceled about 2 years ago. It just seemed kinda creepy. :)

  2. That's so funny because I cancelled mine yesterday too! I've been meaning to do it for so long, but never got around to it. It's just not my thing anymore. I only had about six friends on there anyway and I think they all have FB. We need to get together this week!!!
