Vanessa is... / by vanessa

What's funny about Facebook, and I suppose Twitter, is that it makes me see everything as a potential status update.

Vanessa's eating PopRocks and drinking wine!
Vanessa wishes people would learn to spell weird and definitely, could figure out pronoun agreement in status updates, and would really like it if women would stop calling their husbands hubby.
Vanessa loves teaching yoga!
Vanessa can't wait for Austin...
Vanessa would prefer if some people would just worry about themselves.

...and so on.

Yet, I have this aversion to posting frequent status updates. My self-imposed rule is that I'm not allowed to post more than once a week. I mostly keep it. It's merely an exercise in managing perceptions. Really, all day long I'm thinking stuff like, "Vanessa wonders why she can't drink on the job," or, "Vanessa misses The Hills" and would like the whole world, or 237 people, to know about it.
