I have a lot of thoughts. Most of them suck. Sometimes, a few of them don’t suck.
Twitter doesn’t let you elaborate on your thoughts, and while I understand that is the point of Twitter, sometimes a lady just wants to explain herself. Sometimes a fleeting thought develops into an idea. Sometimes that idea just may be a good one. Here’s a look at a few of my thoughts/tweets from this week.
February 26th “At the end of the day, when all is said and done, people are just really fucking weird.”
Oops. I used a swear. Still, I think about this all the time. I love weirdos. I love people who are unabashedly themselves. People who aren’t afraid to love things that may not be “cool.” People that dress how they want. People that recognize what people think, but don’t necessarily care. I’ve moved around a lot the past few years, and each time I do it’s a challenge to make new friends and forge professional relationships. Often, I realize I bend my personality to suit what I think others want. In the words of the guy on the bus that one time, “that just ain’t right.” Embrace your inner weirdo.
February 27th “Was that really worth sharing, really?”
Redundant? Yes. Valid question? Also, yes. Redundant? Yes. People complain all the time about people posting their daily schedules on Facebook or pictures of their lunches or adult libations on Twitter. If you’re using social media professionally, this could transcend from a minor annoyance to a swift “unfollow.” Know the balance.
February 28th – I had nothing good to say. On and off Twitter – nothing good came out of my mouth.
February 29th “ Social media aka Learning how to not be afraid of your personality.”
This goes hand in hand with being a weirdo. Once companies and businesses become unafraid – magic happens. Weird personalities are better than NO personalities. Don’t be afraid of yours.
February 29th RT – “wtfqrcodes”
I’m just so happy about this website. All together now, “QR CODES ARE STUPID!”
There you have it. An elaboration on what I think are my finer tweets of the week. The rest? A bunch of Oscar live-tweeting and personal musings I’m convinced people will find hilarious. I’m disappointed a lot.
