I’m a writer and I suck at writing. I don’t know what else to say about it really. I feel like I suck because I don’t write enough. I’m doing Camp Nanowrimo, but so far I’ve written only like 4k words – which hey, is great! I wrote 4k more this month then I did last month. But I just feel like such a shit writer because I’m not writing all that much and I’m not writing these ideas that I could write.
I recently went through and downloaded my Facebook data and I don’t know why I’m so shocked at what they have on me? A lot of it is simple stuff, like when I joined, my previous relationship – which was a joke between an old male friend and myself, my activities – a lot of them are Facebook pages I became a “fan” of which are now just a graveyard of clickbait articles, and my family members. What I find interesting is the contact info.
I’m not going to make a “hey it’s been a while” because I’m sure people are sick of it, but hey I’m here to talk about how much I hate anti-technology and anti-social media films and society in general because it’s been on my nerves for a while. Let me first off say that, yes, social media sucks a lot of the time – especially in our current political climate of the world. I would say in Australia it’s not too bad, but with the influence of America, American politics and American society at best, Australians (including myself) have a lot of opinions on the current President of the United States and the politics surrounding his election.
Here’s your usual “a year in review” blog post, last year I made one titled 2015, a year in review, it was a blog entry speaking about my 2014 resolutions and then my 2016 resolutions which guess what = I’ll review them and see if I did it and I’ll talk about my 2017 ones. Some people might find them stupid, and even I was one of them, but in a way I like to see Jan 1st as a ‘new day/new year’ you know the whole ‘new year, new me’ which I’m going to be the same person, let’s be real, but in a way to change how I want to perceive myself. So let’s get on with it.
The one thing that has always fascinated me by most standards is the evolution of language in not only my personal life but in the lives of many people. I think from my own evolution of language at least with the Internet is that I used to use short language ‘u/r/ppl/etc’ you know that text language when I was between 8 – 13, roughly when I was maybe 13 till about 18 I would turn my head up against text language “use the word you, not u” I found it absolutely stupid people wouldn’t use the correct word.
Being an adult sucks. Okay, sure, maybe like little bits here there are good, I don’t have to ask my parents if I can go somewhere (though in all honestly I still do sometimes, but recently it’s not been as bad), I can drink alcohol on a Tuesday night if I want, I can drink alcohol period is nice, I believe I’ve matured enough to be able to take on both side of an argument (though I’ve always been motherly as I’ve had to grow up fast), my opinion is valued… sometimes, I guess being 21 people still see you as a kid.
I lived without a phone for two days, and it was hell. Okay, I’m not justifying the whole ‘millennials can’t live without the phone‘ trope, but hear me out for a second okay? Sure, millennials like their technology, and why not, it’s new and interesting and we can get jobs out of it (i.e. coding, graphic design, heck even writing!). I guess this whole thing links with my previous blog entry of Modern Romance.
