YAY! I now have a logo for my page!! I’m so stoked! All the future possibilities!
I swear about 30 min. before I logged on to my computer I had all of these topics and things that I really wanted to dig into! Of course..my mind went blank. So sorry if my blog is all over the place!
Topic one. Social media. I KNOW.
I noticed one of my friends defriended me from Facebook a couple of months ago..then re added me about one month later. I’m not too sure what that was all about. Then I noticed that she un followed me on Instagram. What the heck. Does friendships end now when your no longer friends on Facebook or Instagram? That is a legit question my friends.
Yes, I guess I could send her a text message and ask.I just very much dislike confrontation sometimes. Sure you can also blame it on me being a millennial, that does not faze me. Social media is redonk! Facebook,Snapchat and Instagram all pretty much have the same features on it! Maybe one day one of them will buy out the others and become one big app!
On that note, I really want to delete all social media apps. Of course here it comes but, I use it for many platforms such as selling my jewelry and advertising on it. And if I want to be in the loop with some of my friends then I have to keep the apps, because lets face it no one really text messages each other anymore.
As you know this thing called minimalism. I’m already pretty much on board. In fact I’m taking a lot of my things to family members, friends and goodwill tomorrow. Full steam ahead ( choo-choo). The point im trying to get at is if I’m going to downsize things in my life then I feel the need to downsize on social media as well.
How often do you feel you have to get on your social media app, to see if you have any new messages or notifications. You have to see if your post/photos you posted before you went to bed have any new likes or hearts, because we know a majority of people get some sort of instant satisfaction from it or even perhaps a boost of self-confidence. I find it mind-blowing.
I think I could really go on about social media, but it also boils down to cell phones. I have a few examples, lets say with going out to dinner with a group of friends. Ever notice how everyone is having small talk, but then at some point everyone is down looking at their cell phone. What is a more important moment than being with the people you cherish the most that you decided to set time aside for them for dinner. Right! I know I’m super guilty of this. And it has to change.
I think I’ll create a healthy plan of my own. Starting off by not checking my phone first thing in the morning, perhaps giving it at least over an hour after waking up to check my “notification.”When I’m with a group of friends, family or doing something such as eating dinner or having a bonding moment, I will leave my cell phone in my purse to disconnect from the “social world” and be in the moment.
This was honestly post to be a short post, and well if your still reading this..well thanks for reading and I hope you got something out of this. I feel like it was a rant..man I got sidetracked!! It’s like talking for me..once I start I can’t stop. In this case once I start typing I can’t stop ahhhhhh!!!
