Oblivious…

It seems to me that I’ve become a bit oblivious to the world around me lately. I walk around on auto pilot too much, which could be a result of being depressed over the years…or it could be because most of the time I’d prefer to be invisible and therefore I don’t take notice in the hope I don’t get noticed myself. As if over the years I’ve slowly  been backing myself out of society, excusing myself to be ignorant.

But by doing this it appears I’ve been also letting the wrong people in and shutting the best ones off to some extent. So this needs to stop. If anything this blog is basically a reminder to myself. To open your eyes! Don’t go through life without living, without knowing or taking notice. Have more interactions with people, even if it isn’t verbal. Because sometimes its the non verbal communications that can mean the most. Even show a spark between two people.

I feel like I have to remind myself a lot of this…but it’s the only way I know how to work it into my head. I think sometimes I just get lost in a sea of social media. I find myself scrolling through Facebook pointlessly for about an hour, before realising that times now gone. So I think I just need to take a step back from that a bit. Focus more on blogging and photography and just exploring and living really.

Ok. Good chat.

Thing’s No One Has Time For! 😓

As a constant user of many social media platforms, it becomes very apparent when a problem occurs with it or if something just isn’t worth the hassel…so here’s a list of five things that I find wrong with social media.

  1. Blowing things out of proportion: this is a pretty obvious one that happens daily. Whether it’s something ridiculous like a celebrity relationship, or just general media. Somehow, someone somewhere creates it into something it’s not…when really that time could be spent evaluating real hard-hitting news.
  2. Links that bounce back up when trying to scroll: the amount of time I’ve spent trying to find out the tiniest bit of information. I mean it can’t just be me that gets annoyed with it and people must complain so why doubt they sort it out 😩.
  3. Links that give you one sentence of information over so many pages: I mean why? Just why? I could understand it for click purposes to track how many people go on your site but surely it gives you that information when you click on the link in the first place…
  4. Twitter fame: ok this is more personal. I really don’t understand how people who barely use the app get so many followers. It really confuses me…like how? Just how?
  5. Private profiles: now I get that most of the time private profiles are for safety…but some times people just want to be nosey. I mean for example when someone follows you on instagram and you want to see who’s followed and you can’t because theirs is private…I mean come on dude your stalking me let me stalk you back 😂.

Anywaayyy I’ll stop ranting now. I just get annoyed sometimes 😓.
