FarmVille on Facebook-How I stopped playing

Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. It is more than that actually. For people of our age our lives revolve around facebook, isn’t it? 

From the moment we reach office, the first thing we do is open the facebook page, then only comes the official emails and all :P. And basically we are on facebook all day long; God only knows what we are doing. Today it’s "are you on facebook?." I wonder what our lives would have been if there was no facebook.
I was rather amused when an elderly blog friend of mine in Massachusetts said that she is not on facebook. Holy cow! When asked why, “it’s simply that however much I try to create my username, it always says try another name, sick of it I gave up the idea of opening an account.” Too amusing, isn’t it? Hats off to her!  

I have my 9 and 10 years old niece and nephews who are on facebook. God forbid, how could they access it? The true digital natives.

After being on facebook for quite some time, I got bored with it. I had one sole purpose to be on facebook-to play FarmVille, a farming social network game developed by Zynga in 2009. You can virtually farm, starting from plowing land, planting, growing, harvesting crops and trees and raising livestock.  

I have never been committed to FarmVille than any other game. I have been continuously playing FarmVille for the last 4 years with just a 6 months break in between, constantly worried that my crops would wither since a crop-specific amount of time would be there. It needs lots of dedication and commitment. From a level 1 farmer I reached to level 100, quite an achievement! I have become a sophisticated agriculturalist now hehe. 
I introduced this game to my roommates whilst in Post Graduate days and to others and since then we have had competition as to who would reach the higher level even after joining jobs lol. I know I have wasted a lot of my time yet this have become rather addictive:(.
I had this target of reaching level 100.  Yay I did it! Now I am all goodbyes to FarmVille. I am stopping playing this game and rather invest this time productively. Hope I keep my promise :P.

Here are my farms, altogether there are 5 farms, but I have only 3 pictures here. It usually takes an hour every day for me to visit all the farms and work on it. 

Original Home Farm
Winter Wonderland
Lighthouse Cove, another farm

Another week is gone, I spent my weekend watching Jism 2, loved the movie.How was your weekend? The whole time I was doing this post I listened to Maula song from the film. Another heart touching song with wonderful lyrics. 

A happy week to all!
