+ that not every single blog post requires a picture, & that sometimes, omitting a picture strengthens the lonely words' message.
+ that the whole "if you want something done, give it to a busy person" rings absolutely true with myself. full load of classes, plus outside commitments, plus life? i'm on top of my game. returning to wilmington after an action-packed shreveport visit, with no job or classes or anything to do but clean the house? i'm useless.
+ to just share. especially with my family & friends. just send the text, just pick up the phone & call. only good things can come of this.
+ to let my blog be a reflection of myself. not a means to make money or gain popularity or fame. that kind of blog just doesn't feel like me, doesn't feel natural. i just want to write & share & have a creative outlet.
+ that i really need to cut back on my social media consumption. i'm beginning to think its usage is nearly pointless in daily life, but still i find myself drawn to scroll instagram, drawn to scroll twitter, drawn to scroll facebook. perhaps i love instagram, because i love taking, sharing, & looking at photos. perhaps i love twitter because, at my core, i really do love people & like reading what they like sharing. perhaps i love facebook because i'm nosy. do you see where the conflict herein lies?
What have you decided?
