day 1395 – earnest

carrying over the effects of yesterday, i couldn’t concentrate seeing so many live streams and posts of the event. even the earnest manager brought in didn’t help much. i didn’t want to be anywhere; if there was a hole i would bury myself. luckily i could go out for a drink on a warm summer-like night. that gave my mind a break so i don’t have to bum around and want to run myself through the walls

day 856 – outlet source

one of my social media platform was invaded today and it never feels good when my personal space gets trampled on; almost like my human rights got mutilated. i swear if something wasn’t fixed by the end of today, i wouldn’t stop short of letting my displeasures be known. good thing we have come to a consensus and found a solution that might work. it was one of those days where i thought i wouldn’t hold myself together and lose control. i came ever so close to blowing up but i am glad i went to my trusted place, a place i can always count on as a source of outlet and digression

the advancement in the technological world has brought us wonders, many of which we never thought possible a decade ago. technology is great when it comes to connectivity and communication. getting up to date has never been easier and getting news out through the ever growing number of social media platforms has never been so convenient. but sometimes it just doesn’t get the message across the right way. its because of all these devices that we get a little too caught up in our own world and forget the big picture of direct contact and interaction. i must admit i am a culprit myself, always staring down at my phone swiping away and checking my newsfeed for updates on things that could probably be put on hold. there are times when it shouldn’t become top priority because there’s someone nearby that may benefit from a little conversation. while it doesn’t mean that we must hide our phones away at dinner tables, it’s a good idea not to be staring at it every waking second. good communication is the key to success; often, the good old fashioned face to face interaction is the most trustworthy one that always gets the message across the proper way. never underestimate the power of eye contact, facial expression and body language. i love my technology for what it brings me and i wouldn’t give it up, but i will always use it with care so technology doesn’t become the downfall of my communication skill

i have established time goes by fast and only goes faster as we get older. there are so many things going on simultaneously around the world and it is nearly impossible to keep up with every single event. but let’s not allow everything to seep through without having at least tried. don’t be that lone person that stays clueless forever and the person that finds out everything last. stay on top of what’s happening around you and your surroundings. whatever your interest is, be it a trending thread, top box office movie, latest drama, special holiday event, don’t let things pass you by while the rest of society is talking about it. go out and explore the city, attend the special events and festivities. no same that i get my news through sources like social media newsfeeds with people’s post and shares. i try harder to stay on top of things that interest me, anything from sports, movies, dramas, sales, civic events but sometimes it is a good idea to expand that beyond just my interest zone. i need to do a better job at keeping up with the news on the bigger current events that takes place around the world. it’s a better idea to stay informed and i would feel more witty when i am able to sustain a conversation of any topic

some arguments were made that technology is altering people interaction and that we are losing the ability to communicate with face to face conversations. that may be true on some level, but can’t argue that technology is a powerful tool that has also brought us many conveniences like never before. sure, the increased gaming opportunities isn’t a good reflection but a little wouldn’t hurt. no one can argue being able to send a short message or quickly snap and send a picture through our mobile phones applications in a matter of seconds is not convenient, the simplicity to check in or tag your friends in photos to share, or the ability to retrieve an email the second it arrives is not efficient. let’s be realistic, who doesn’t own a computer or cellphone these days and who still uses land line as home phone?? the technological world is advancing so quickly, the fastest and most efficient way is to constantly be checking all sorts of platforms. i must admit i am a culprit of relying on technology everyday, every waking hour. i don’t see how that can be a bad thing because just by checking up on social media, it allows me to catch up on some friend news, gossip new and world news even if it means reading them off my facebook wall. i admit i am the person who would be swiping on my phone at the dinner table; but in my defense, being a busy person makes it is not all unncessary activity, but i am working on minimizing that. bottom line is i feel so lost and naked without my phone, i simply cannot live without technology and i don’t think its a bad thing

day 149 – facebook addicts

saw this sold behind the target cashier counter and found it extremely hypocritical. i don’t see how a $25 gift card selling for exact face value would be of any discount. not to mention i honestly had no idea such gift card existed and still wondering why would anyone want this as a gift.
