In truth, this is probably the fourth or fifth blog I own and manage. I will – most likely – consolidate some older ones into this one, and keep one more that is specific to my lifestyle choices. This one will be more inclusive of everyday musings. That is not to say it won’t cross over… the age-checker when you load this blog has that part covered, just in case.
But, I digress.
Welcome to another online incarnation of my social-media-whoredom and need to overshare. Feel free to ask questions, follow me if you like, and ignore me if you don’t. ;-) Either way, everyone will end up getting something they want… how is that bad?
Wait, what did I call this? Ah, yes, another peek into my social-media-whoredom (whoring?). I am addicted, I can admit it, to social media and online communication. I live through my CrackBerry and I am way more connected than any human being needs to be. Just plug me into the Matrix, and I am happy girl.
This is not to say I don’t have a “normal” life off the grid. I don’t live in my parent’s basement with a headset and a bluish monitor glow. I have an active social life and a fabulous job. I am working on a master’s degree, I travel, I host visiting friends (many of whom I have met from my own travels), and I love to go out and be and do (do be do be do…). But I am keenly aware of how the internet and cell phones and other technology have taken over my life. A friend once called me “Gemini of Borg,” and it’s fitting.
Add to that the fact that I am a social animal of the highest Kingdom (phylum, order, etc.), and it’s a maelstrom of status updates, Twitpics, and random ribbing of thousands of strangers to whom I have become connected. All in all, a good day.
So don’t be a stranger. Say Hi, tell me to fuck off… whatever works for you. Either way, I am sure it will be entertainment of all sorts.
