Today i found really interesting. We were doing a brainstorm about how we can be who we want to be online and change our attitudes or appearances.
The fact that we DO have a very different life here on the internet really got me thinking about how much i actually use it and how, myself is portrayed.
I wouldn’t exactly call myself in introvert, that’s the last word i would use to describe myself… but i do use the internet as an escape from the real world, as do many people. The fact that we don’t have to actually deal with people to be able to interact with them and sometimes not care if you offend them or so on can be nice.
Take tumblr for example, I use tumblr for mainly re-blogging about what other people have blogged and pictures that I would want to take myself but if people were to see them and not know that is was my profile i can imagine that they wouldn’t think it was me posting them.
The variety of people that you can meet is awesome, from so many different cultures and backgrounds… I just love to think that there is someone out there reading this post and possibly taking a little something from it. I can’t imagine there will be coz I only have like 40 followers lol.
Well any hoo, I must go and check my girlfriends bank coz we are getting a cheeky takeaway before i go to work tonight.
Peace out tumblr :)
Hey Guys, hows it going?
I am okay today, I got a phone call of a friend that I haven’t spoke to in like forever and it was really really nice to hear from her. We used to speak like all the time but we kinda drifted and don’t really talk as much any more :(. She is awesomely cool and so down to Earth. She helped me through a really difficult time in my life, she was a total lifeline that I really really needed at that time. She was the voice of reason that I lacked. It’s such a shame that we never actually got to meet properly, we went to the same school together but we were never actually introduced or ever had a proper conversation in person (But I am determined to meet her eventually and keep in contact with her as she is someone, that may not know it, but means a lot to me). It was kinda strange how we got talking, I made a new facebook and added her and she asked if she knew me or if I knew her I can’t quit remember but from then on in, we spent a good few months talking every night till the early hours about life and what we wanted to do with our futures and stuff. I really wish I knew what I wanted to do when I was her age, she isn’t much younger than me but she has direction and determination to get what she wants to. I do hope we keep in touch a bit more because it was awesome to hear from her today, it really cheered me up as I haven’t really been feeling myself over these past few days. So if you are reading this… thanks dude :)
Work was the usual… Bouncing about with the kiddies and having über lots of fun! We spent the whole afternoon out in the sun, we were all playing with footballs and playing roley poley down hills. I do love my job! I get to just be me and let loose. I do tend to get a little bit too crazy though, then i have to sit down for 5 mins and have a little word with myself and tell me to calm down lol. I don’t have to do that very often but I have been known to have to sit in a corner and chill for a little while as I do get very carried away. I guess I have my super-extrovert personality to blame for that one. I do enjoy been the way I am, people always ask me… How do you do it? (talk to randomers and do the random things I do.)
Well it’s Friday tomorrow, which means its the end of another working week, which means it is the beginning of another weekend, which may I add is NEVER long enough! I will be re-doing my FACS test this weekend, as I failed the first attempt at a .63 out of the .70 needed to pass! I guess it’s a good thing I failed it the first time, because it will make me re-think and try harder. My mum asked me if it had knocked my motivation to do it but it hadn’t it had made me want to do it more. I would do it when I come in from work but it takes a lot of concentration, concentration that I don’t have after a day at work. So I will go into uni with my mum over the weekend and go over it all again.
It is my mums birthday next week, I will go get her some flowers and a card and what not, but i also want to take her to get something querky and unique which she likes. Something medieval or roman or something with a historic/artistic value. She likes things like that, which has only recently surfaced, because if I had knew this before I would have been buying her stuff like this for a long time. There’s no time like the present though right :)
Well I think I am done for tonight, my rant is over :)
I wish you all the nicest of weekends
Peace out :)
