Some people really do have them glued onto their hands don’t they? It’s not bad to always have your phone with you. I know that now in the time that we live in we are all dependent on our phones. It being because we need to keep in touch with a loved one or for work reasons, the phone has become a major part of …our body.
But when is too far, too far? I usually have my phone with me at all times. I wont leave my home with out it. I even take it into the bathroom and listen to music while I shower. The phone has so many uses, from giving you directions to lighting up a dark room, the phone has become something that we need every single day. But just because I have my phone with me all the time does not mean that I am on it constantly. Its just at my side for when I need to use it.
Some people just don’t know how to put it down. They will be checking it every ten minutes. They will go on social media, people who use it for work will work on their phone even when their home away from their office or while they are on vacation.
The thing that bugs me the most is when you are eating with someone and all they do is check their phone every so often. Or they check it when they are bored, I guess you’re not entertaining enough then? You might as well be eating alone in that case. Do you grab your phone so you wont look weird next to the person you are with? Or do you just sit there and wait until they see how rude they are being?
I don’t mind if you have to occasionally text someone or you get a call. Just let me know you have to reply to someone. When you are talking to someone and they grab their phone and start texting or change their face expressions while staring at the screen, you already know that you have lost their attention. Not to mention its so disrespectful and just flat out rude.
I guess what I am trying to say is if you’re with someone, leave your phone alone. Put your phone down once in a while. I’m not saying leave with out it or lock it in the safety box, no. Put it down, look at where you are and what you are doing. Are you with some one you care about or that they care about you? Then maybe you should pay them the attention and not some robotic device.
Today was a good day until the last two hours. Let me explain. My boss yesterday asked if we wanted to stay two hours over time. Since we all hate working there with a passion, of course we all said no thanks. To this she said, “ok I’ll just mandate it for tomorrow.” Gee ok then. That means she was going to make it mandatory and we all had no option of leaving.
So today in the morning, she said that if we each finished certain tasks that we would be able to leave at the usual time. GUESS WHAT HAPPENED AT THE END OF THE DAY? Well, we finished our tasks, and in my point of view, we even did more than what we actually needed to do. But, she told all of us that we had to stay at least an hour. Ok sure not bad, but the fact that she just randomly decides these things like that buuuuuugs me sooooo much.
Maybe I shouldn’t be complaining, I know. At least I have a job. The demands of the job sometimes make you adjust your plans or even change them and yada yada yada. But still, I’m bugged. Then when we were leaving, I over heard (because she didn’t tell us) that she isn’t going to be at work tomorrow. Great communication. Aren’t you supposed to tell your crew that you will be out? That you want them to still do what they have to do and pull in the work? That if there is anything that they may need then they can call you? Nope. She didn’t. I don’t know she’s weird. She just makes me mad. She triggers me so much almost everyday.
Now, this means that I’ll have to be going to the “manager meeting” to fill in for her since I’m her second in command. I hate doing that meeting. I think I’ve talked about it countless times before, and I’ll keep talking about it until I finally quit that place. But eh. What can you do?
In other news, I just posted a pic on IG. Hahahaha , I feel so modern. Am I in now? Can we be friends? One of my friends saw my Youtube video and said she couldn’t stop laughing. I didn’t know if that was a compliment or not. I’m glad she liked it regardless. If you haven’t watched the video you shouldn’t because it so bad. But click here if you really need to. And follow me on my Instagram if you want to, I have no friends.
Ok ok ok. Since I have been posting all week might as well continue the streak right? So, today I’ve spent my whole freaking day researching. Yes, researching. Let me tell you why. So I’ve been watching so many YouTube tutorials on how to begin a channel and what you need to know and all that juicy stuff. The one thing that people don’t tell you is that you need to do a lot of before kind of things.
No one tells you that you need to have a good software editing system. No one tells you what type of camera to use. No one tells you what type of laptop to use. Everyone is more like, “this is what I use, this is what I have used in the past, you can use what ever you want.” And if you want to know what the most popular camera or editing software there is you really can’t because they all use something different.
Done with that rant. Any way, I spent my whole day at Starbucks just reading up on YouTube regulations and copyright laws and all that wonderful things. I think that this is the first time I actually sit down and read “Terms and Conditions” before accepting. The amount of time I spent today on this is insane but I’m for sure so into this.
After I noticed that my laptop that I currently own is slower then I am I decided to go get myself in debt and buy a new one. I researched this as well and asked so many questions, I think the guy helping me at best buy was annoyed but he did help a lot. (Shout out to him). I am very happy with the one I purchased. It looks really nice but I hope that it actually works like I want it too.
Oh, another thing I did was I downloaded Instagram and Twitter. I am no social media whore, but if I want my channel to get views and people to see me I need these platforms to grow and expand. (So go follow me! ;} I’ll let you know when I’m finished setting all that up so you can).
Right now I’m at Starbucks again. Don’t worry, its a different one. I set up my laptop which took a while, I’m downloading DaVinci Resolve. It is the best video editor I was able to find that is actually free. I watched some tutorials in the mean time, and I have to say it looks really high end and professional.
Now, for the good stuff. My first video is done. It looks like complete trash, I’m not even going to lie. But hey, its my first video and I really don’t know what I’m doing. You would think that I would delete it and just make something better. But here’s the thing. I really had so much fun filming and editing it. Since its also the very first thing I produce (dang check me out) I want everyone to see where I came from, you know when I make it big, (hahhahaha I’m just kidding). But I think you get what I mean.
That’s all for now. Don’t worry I wont bother you tomorrow with another post. I know I can get a little annoying. I’ll wait till Monday.
Is social media ruining friendships? Or in the contrary, is it helping friends get closer to each other?
My over all verdict is going to have to be that you can decide which way it will go. Social media has given us the gift of being somewhere with someone, but not actually or to be more literal, physically been there with them.
This in its own sense can be good just as it can be evil thing. You can be enjoying the beauty of nature from home through your eyes of your friends pictures. You can be at the ocean while your furnace warms up your cabin in the mid west on a cold winters day.
I know it’s not the same thing as actually bing where the picture or video was taken. But don’t you feel like your there? Or at least feel the sand in your feet, or the smell of trees , and been the wind blowing in your hair.
Then again, you can also know the exact location of your friend. Or honestly really anyone. If they allow you to see their mobile location, you can pin point where they are with an almost exact precision.
This last one has ruined my life. I think a lot. I am one of those people who asks themselves every possible question that really has no answer because they are foolish questions.
Why are they there? Who are they with? Why didn’t I get invited? Then once these questions don’t get answered, they are followed by deeper ones. Maybe they don’t want to be around me? Maybe they became bored of me? Is this their way of saying goodbye?
So right now snapchat, instagram, and Facebook are all being flooded with post about how 2017 treated people. Some are saying that it was great and some are saying how it’s the worst year yet.
For me I’m swiping through word press and see all the 2017 posts as well. People saying goodbye to this year and hello to the next.
All the while I’m in my bed just listing to music. Doing nothing special. Not drinking, not having fun. Just boring old me in my bed. Sadly I work tomorrow but over time is over time.
I messaged a friend and told him that I really did appreciate his friendship this year. Through our ups and downs. Our adventures and out boring phases . It was all fun and great and he really did make this year better.
I’m scared for 2018 honestly. Everyone says that the next year will be better but it seems to only get worse. What’s going on? I have so many questions and no one seems to want to answer them. Am I the only one who’s scared?
