One of the most fascinating things about human development is technology. From the first introduction of automatic transmission in the 1940s to self-driving cars in 2013. We, as humans, have come so far and it’s truly exciting to even think about what’s to come.
And then we have the communication advancement, good ol’ social media. Now can we really consider this an advancement? Because when you really think about it and begin to observe the public, 75% of the time people are socializing, one has their phone on their hand. Tweeting everything they’re experiencing at the moment, posting pictures on Instagram/Facebook every 30 minutes of their food, friends and surroundings. Now we have Vine, which allows us to capture the moment in about 6 seconds, creating a mini video clip.
All of this sharing has caused the human race to say one’s adventures, fun times, and social outings aren’t valid if you don’t post a picture or record and share it. Nowadays, a Facebook status or Tweet about how much fun you’re having isn’t going to fly by. Society screams We Want More, We Want More! I will admit that I am guilty of this also… but as I see this situation getting worse and worse everyday, the value of human interaction is greater to me now. Putting down your phone and really enjoying the times with your friends and family instead of having your smartphone screen attached to your eyeballs at all times is something that is not interchangeable.
I’ve come to the conclusion that people who do this every day of their lives have a disorder… What’s your purpose? To make others jealous? For your own personal pleasure? Or because you have no friends, that you feel the need to post a picture of every 20 minutes just so your ego can be boosted by a double tap? I’m not dissing anyone… It’s just a simple observation :)
My birthday was successful. Filled with peace and happiness. But most importantly, I’m thankful for making it to another year. What does the universe have in store for me? I’m excited to find out. Thrilled to break barriers, meet new people, conquer fears, & grow into the woman I am meant to be.
This past week, I felt the sun rise in my soul. It felt so…. beautiful. I have been so reluctant to change within the past 2 years… until I began having faith that there actually is good out there. I began trusting the universe, the Lord and I can see my fears deteriorating as the days go by. All I want to say is thank you. I feel closer… one two three steps closer to my dreams, to my full potential. I think that’s is what I love so much about life. You get fucked over horribly twice in a year and then you bounce back on a hundred thousand trillion
During my 22, almost 23, years of roaming this earth, I have seen many beautiful things. From exploring different places to experimenting with different drugs. Eating the finest veal along with some wine. Spontaneous late night drives to the beach. But I have noticed one thing…… None of these experiences that I’ve had aren’t anything without the people that I have shared those moments with.
Certain individuals such as the following person, has influenced my life in a way that I can’t quite explain. We’re 2 years apart but I’ve always felt that she was ahead of her time. Very blessed to have seen her grow up in this world and take the world by storm.
I decided to take the time out to turn the tables (she is a journalism major) and ask her a couple of questions :)
