Man I am telling you, that WordPress app for iPhone would really come in handy right about now. I just don’t know how to get it to work and I have made sure everything was enabled on this blog for it to do so. I am going to try it again before I get ready for work. Man I can sometimes hate working at night. Having to drive 30 minutes back in the dark to my home all just to get up and be at work again for 8:00 am. It gets tiring but I am thankful that I have this little job. It is really teaching me and modeling me because they are some days when I want to go off on people. Just because I am nice doesn’t mean that I am not going to scream when you step on my toes, ok? So many people mistake me for being weak due to other encounters they’ve experienced with me but I am far from it and I get taken for granted quiet often. I am learning that I don’t have to prove that I am a force to be reckoned with to everyone and what ever negative opinion that they form of me can’t hurt me, unless it’s TRUE. So.
Anyway I am always getting off topic with things. I wanted to come on here and blab about social networks and how I am just tired of running into lame ones. Are there any social networks, for young adults? The ones that I have been finding lately have a huge population of children. No offensive I love duh kids but at the same time I would like to find something where I could meet others close to my age, you know? Don’t get me started on Twitter and Facebook. I notice that the few people who complain about Twitter and Facebook are the ones who usually have one. (which is me) So just to save myself some breath I won’t go in on Twitter and Facebook. I will give Facebook props for having awesome games but Facebook makes lurking from a distance POSSIBLE, no lie. I mean really do my sister’s friends need to know that she commented on my status? I think that is just too much. Twitter, Twitter brings out the worse and the best in people and because there is so much celebrity action and reaction on there and the fact that people think that they can say what they want and have the computer screen as their shield makes me really dislike Twitter. I was never good at TRUE social networking but the few friends that I did make, the good ones, came from my Yahoo! messenger chat system!
Those were the good old days! When you could just log onto Yahoo! chat and just…chat! And going into chat rooms and having people send out your name so their contacts could add you (which was annoying because I would have a whole contact list filled with NINJAS I ain’t even know and their status messages would be LAME songs and such…sheesh). On Yahoo! messenger is where I met some really great friends but even then I was super young and people were super evil. If I could give any advice to this young kids it would to be very careful. I remember having thought that I was talking to girl my age but I was really talking to older men. And those men were just so nasty. It is easy to be taken advantage of over the internet so y’all just please be careful.
But yeah now that I do have social networks like InstaGram and Tumblr, I notice that it is just a bunch of younger kids who create the bigger portion of these networks (at least that is how it feels *sad face*) and not much of my age group is on there. If they are I haven’t found them yet. Man I even at one point had made an account on Friend Project (don’t laugh!) cause I really missed Myspace! I was so happy too! I got on there and made a layout and EVERYTHING!…then 3-5 days later or some weeks later I deleted it. It’s no fun when you don’t have anyone to talk to. I got to give Friend Project points though. I mean they literally copied the ENTIRE Myspace theme and layout and produce a site of their own. Only issue is that the youngsters is all over that network too!
I guess it is time for me to step away from the computer screen, and to start making friends…in the real world. NO!!! REAL PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND ME!!! They don’t! I don’t know what it is about social networking virtually but I have yet to meet someone in person that shares the same interests as me like I do through social networking virtually. I guess that is why I am so attached to it! I mean not to say that the people that I met over the internet weren’t real because they were, but the only thing holding us back was the distance…*if I could go the distance* (song by Michael Bolton)
Anyway, I decided to start giving networking OUTSIDE and AWAY from the computer a chance…*side eye*. I wanted to see, well THINK about joining NAACP on my campus and then there was BSU that I thought about too. I am actually in 3 organizations right now, DOA, BUGS and a small community service one. DOA is for pre professional students and the BUGS group is for Biology majors. The community service group is a group of ladies that help out during football season. With the exception to the community service one cause I really just joined, I haven’t really met anyone in these groups. Thinking that I would, because that was my major and I could find others who were in my major but I haven’t yet. These groups are small and they don’t meet a lot because of that. I am hoping to find more groups to join on campus. I am not going to join every group though because some of them have dues you know! (and a sistah tryna save for a CAR!) But yeah that was my mini rant on that! Bye folks!
