So this week I’ve decided to actually incorporate the blog word “desire” into my blog post.
When I think of the word “desire”… Social networking is definitely not my first thought. Here are some pictures that somewhat describe my thought stream when I think of “desire”…
ANYWAYS… you probably get the idea.
So I was thinking, how do I get desire… to link with social networking and the media and such… and then it hit me… DESIRE IS THE LINK!
DESIRE IS THE LINK!
As a social media addict, my desire for social networking is strong. I am constantly on Twitter complaining about my life or on Instagram uploading pictures of my meals or on Facebook stalking my “friends” and wishing I had a life. It’s a vicious cycle really… the desire to social network has really disrupted life as we know it. I mean before we had social media, when we went out… we couldn’t check-in at all the places we went, so no one would know where we were and of all the cool things we were eating. CAN YOU IMAGINE A WORLD LIKE THAT?!
Social media, is practically my life. I use it to make it look like I have a life, when really… I’m just always on social media. DO YOU SEE THE SOCIAL MEDIA TRAP NOW?
We spend so much time trying to make it look like we have the most awesome lives… checking in to all these cool places with friends, taking pictures of all the sinful foods we eat, not to mention the drunk photos and statuses that we post… when in reality our “awesome” life is to make it look like we’re out there living and not in our rooms on a Saturday, in bed at 2.25pm eating ice cream and watching old episodes of Gossip Girl (I’m totally not doing that right now…)
Anyways so I’ve got to get back to Gossip Girl now. Wait what?
