The Social Media Meltdown

Howdy folks!

I hope that you are enjoying week 3 of classes! I can’t believe it’s already been 3 weeks

Things have been pretty hectic on my end. I started the new major which has been A LOT of work so far. It’s a really great time though and I’m really happy with the switch. I’m excited to be a Childhood Ed major now! Though, the thought of teaching English gives me nightmares….

Since things have been so hectic, I’ve been doing what any normal college student would do and waste my time on the interent. Remember that post a while ago when I said I had to schedule goof off internet time? Yeah, me either. Someone got me into the website reddit.com. That was the worst discovery ever because once I figured out how to use it, I spend hours and hours scrolling through posts. Then of course there is Facebook and Twitter. I spend way too much time on those sites. So, since I have a lot of work to do this semester I decided to make a tough decision and deactivate my Facebook and Twitter. DUN DUN DUN!

I don’t think it will be a permanent thing, I mean who can really do that? But, until I get into the groove of school and get all my time scheduled, it needed to be done.

In a way it feels refreshing. I am using my phone a lot less, I go on the computer to do actual work (okay, and I still go on reddit), and I can actually finish complete thoughts instead of having internet A.D.D. and going from one site to the next to the next.

So, even though at first deleting Facebook seems like the scariest thought (especially cause my best friend is abroad in London and it’s one of the only ways we can communicate. Email is so 2000.) it really isn’t that bad! Except now I won’t know when it’s someone’s birthday….

On a more serious note, it has been 11 years since the attack on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and the crash in PA. Like many individuals on the St. Rose campus, I lived in the city during that time and it is something that is truly indescribable. It is something that will stay with this country forever. I hope that everyone takes a moment to reflect on the events and remember all the citizens that were involved. You are always in our hearts and will never be forgotten.
