At times I wonder if I’m a snob for being bothered by terrible grammar….flagrant misuse of conjugations and words in general; although, it makes me laugh when people are ranting and raving about something in the most inarticulate manner. It makes me wonder, what kind of grades did you get in English class? Are you simply expressing your poetic freedom? An example would be TyPiNg LiiK3 tH!!$. Or are you simply illiterate/inarticulate??
I had a boyfriend once who would use his civil liberties to type words in whatever way he pleased. An example would be…”Hay, how u doin?” I mentioned something to him about it and he seemed to be somewhat offended (makes sense). Not too much later, he asked my uncle to hook him up with a job opportunity and so, this boyfriend gave him his resume. My uncle informed me that his resume had a bunch of spelling errors and was essentially making him (my uncle…as well as the boyfriend, I guess) look bad.
This particular incident showed me that if you choose to be inarticulate or not improve on your grammar, etc. on the internet, whether it’s Facebook, Myspace, or a review for a product on the internet, it will spill over into your real life and you will end up looking foolish. I had to catch myself a couple of times with that, actually…so sad.
So, I’m falling in love with yoga. I usually have a problem with my joints and back with most exercises and I hope this will be a good alternative. YouTube is actually a great place for free yoga instruction. The two women that I’ve found seem SO strong. I hope to build up my strength. I’ve reduced my chaloric intake and I’m cutting down on my cholesterol. I was told a few months back that it’s pretty high and I need to get it down. Pretty successful so far! I feel much better. I had been feeling like poo for the past year or so, but now I’m out of the sedentary lifestyle and exercising and eating healthy. I’m excited about this new journey! I’m also excited about these mini twists I’m gonna try out!
I’m glad that folks have decided to follow me and I’m following y’all. It’s surprising to me and I appreciate it. I have yet to figure out how to communicate with others on here so, I just continue to post. I type more than I post photos, but Lord knows I’ve several photos! I’m somewhat sporadic. That is all :)
So, I’m taking a Facebook sabbatical and I’m limiting my viewing of YouTube. I realize I’ve spent too much time with these things and I feel like my life is being wasted. My husband and I are on the path to greatness and that doesn’t really involve social networks; however, I will continue to use Tumblr because it allows me to have some of an emotional outlet, but I don’t feel as though my life is being wasted by it. I have strange moments of deja vu. Like I’ve seen the moments in a dream as though I actually have experienced them before (weird side note), but anyway. I’m done <3
I want to see the world. I want to go to other countries and be able to bask in the beautiful glow of the sun rise and sun set in places such as Santorini or Jamaica. I guess I just mentioned two of the most generic places a person would want to visit, but they seem so pretty! I get jealous sometimes when I hear about other people getting to see the world and I’ve gone to only a few states here in the US. I’ve been to Texas (live/lived there), New York, Nevada, and I’ve driven through Arizona and New Mexico, only stopping to get food.
Since I have only visited places in the states I want to go elsewhere, even if it’s just Canada…not much interest in Mexico. Maybe Alaska? Or Hawaii would be cool. It’s just so expensive! Traveling is expensive no matter where you go, it seems. I see all of these colorful pictures and I can imagine myself there, or at least I try to imagine myself there. Of course I wouldn’t be alone in these places *smile* My husband would go with me. I’m trying to think of the realistic aspect of these things and I’m just not sure. He mentioned Brasil, so that seems cool. It would be wild to live in another country, BUT we’d have to learn the language and I’m generally lazy. We shall see…I’m done.
There is a lot to be said about the quote that I just posted because of the fact that it pretty much explains my way of thinking. If I don’t know for sure what you are, then I am unsure about how I should approach you or view you. Upon first meeting a person, they are new and I will treat them as such and be kind, maybe I will ask questions to get to know you if the mood strikes me. After meeting you a few times, if you become my “friend” or claim to be such, but display questionable behavior, I will think twice about how to approach you. It’s like the double minded man. You cannot love the world and worship the Lord at the same time, just as you cannot be a friend and an enemy.
