Interesting that this popped up right now. I was just telling my sweetie today at lunch that I often write down what I want to have happen in my life and often times most things come true. And I think it happens because I truly believe it will! The things that don’t happen are the things that I still do not feel 100% confident about. I have to figure out the blocks and then work through them. There is one huge thing on my wish list that hasn’t happened yet. It feels like I’m getting closer and closer but I’m just not there yet. I’m not sure what the block is. This requires some serious thought and meditation. haha. I’m not worried about it though. I’m in a great place right now in my life. ;)
I’ve been working on my friend’s Facebook “page” on and off all day trying to get the “likes” up. I did it before for my friend’s music page and I got quite a following for him. Oddly enough it truly translates into sales so if that is your ultimate goal, then you need to play the game. Sometimes people get really turned off to the whole game, but I think there is a way around that. Don’t be a slut.
My time spent on social media is quite planned out. I pick certain times to make the “investment,” and then I’m off……..forgetting all about it. Play the game on your terms and then feel free to let it go. Or……hire an intern and completely forget about it.
In all honesty I think of myself as “old school.” I actually carry around a hand written calendar. I’m a very “visual” person and my phone calendar just wasn’t cutting it. I need to see the days with activities written in each little box (dentist, audition, visit mom, pick up RX, Max’s flea medication.) On another note, I am extremely techy so I hide my old school calendar because my friends are sure that I have some amazing super cool app that keeps track of my every move. Yes, I love apps, my smart phone, and I love social medial. I wouldn’t have a clue what my 40 cousins are up to if it weren’t for Facebook. I wouldn’t have a free plate of french fries waiting for me at Izzy’s if Yelp “check in” didn’t exist. I wouldn’t know what casting directors are up to if it weren’t for Twitter (where they are brutally honest.) If I didn’t have that super cool parking app I would be carrying around 10 thousand quarters.
And we can’t forget about Tumblr. Ah yes……Tumblr. The platform where I can pour my heart out and not bother anyone. Tumblr doesn’t roll it’s eyes at me. Tumblr doesn’t listen politely and then ask “where’s the remote.” Tumblr doesn’t judge. And most of all, Tumblr doesn’t talk back. I love Tumblr. :)
One of these days I may truly go “off the grid” for a week or more. But not right now. No…….not right now.
