GET THIS LOOK! TUTORIAL BELOW
While surfing Youtube on a search for music videos, a concert version of The Script’s “If You Ever Come Back” caught my eye. During this video, I noticed a tall blonde guy in the crowd and it hit me — that was my friend Ralph and this entire video was made up of footage they gathered from the concert in Virginia we attended back in November. [REVIEW HERE]
Pretty cool to stumble across this video and relive that show:
I pulled a prank on the Facebook community by switching my birthday to April 1st and notifications began to blow up my phone. Besides being fully amused throughout the entire day, it was also somewhat alarming. Folks I’ve known for years and even ones who attended my birthday party, just a few months ago, fell for the gag.
Personally, I’m horrible at keeping up with birthdays and always saw Facebook as a great way to be reminded. Though, after pulling this prank, it really opened my eyes on how much technology has taken over our lives; especially with my generation. Everyone seems to constantly be hiding behind their computers and cell phones — conversation, human interaction… where have you gone? Sometimes, I wish we lived in a world where the words “e-mail” and “internet” didn’t exist. Considering I do web-design, that’s kind of ironic, huh?
I’m really a social person in general. I love meeting and talking to people, but a few years ago, developed a fear of phones — I couldn’t stand talking over the phone. It’s hard to talk to someone you can’t see, because so much of our ability to “read” another person is based on sight. I overcame this issue by working the front desk at a hotel. Now I don’t mind chatting over the phone because you can have more meaningful conversations when speaking over the phone vs. trading abbreviated text messages.
To me, texting is annoying but unfortunately am forced to use this method quite often since it seems to be the more popular choice out of the two. I’ll only text if it’s too noise to hear, little things here and there, but when it comes to actually holding conversations via text, I tend to get sidetracked and fall behind. The thing that gets me is when the other person gets upset that I’m not responding quickly enough. Really? Just do things the “old fashioned” way and give me a call if you want to chat.
Nothing beats a good ol’ hangout session, but when it comes down to the telephone, which do you prefer — calling or texting and why? Leave your thoughts in the comments section. Did you know studies have shown people check their text messages before voice mails and half the time, won’t even check those? Wait, you do remember what a voice mail is, right?
SMH. K, done venting. Ttyl!
P.s: My birthday is actually on August 31st 😉
Super excited about my newest assignment. What unforeseen job will I be adding to my resume? Well, here’s a clue:
Yes, the picture above is Dodgers Stadium and that’s where I’ll be roaming during some of the games this season. Not really cut out for the baseball team, so what will I be doing? Since cameras are pretty nifty and there’ll be tons of kodak moments, I will be photographing all of you crazy sport fanatics out there. If you happen to hit up a game, come say hello and have your picture taken — bring me some peanuts and cracker jacks while you’re at it! 😉
Guess if you walk around with balloons, people automatically assume it’s your birthday. Technically, birthdays are your own little celebrations and St. Paddy’s is to celebrate part of my heritage, so I’ll go with it. I saw the most darling couple — first spotted the two at Griffith Park Observatory taking wedding pictures. The young lady wore a dazzling white dress while, her lad in hand, rocked a green plaid shirt with a flat cap. I could barely handle how adorable it was and as our paths crossed five more times that day throughout Hollywood, couldn’t help but grin ear to ear. It simply made my day. I went off to a couple local pubs and toasted the night away, all while feasting on cabbage, potatoes & corned beef…
May the luck of the Irish always be with ya!
