I swore I’d never do it. Promised to stand strong and resist the pressures of my generation. However, the day has come where the leader has become a follower. I surrendered… I am now on Twitter. This letter “t” is my scarlet letter for trader. The guilt is running through my veins…but let me explain my reasons, or rather my excuses.
For one, I promise you that I’m using it work purposes to promote my organization and our affiliate partners (such as the NFL and their PLAY 60 initiative). Second, this social media phenomenon is not ending any time soon so why not just see what all the fuss is about. Additionally, why not ‘stalk’ my favorite celebrities and hear all about their nonsense and rich, fancy lives. And finally, I’m young, I’m single, I’m dedicated to trying new things…so why not? @kristenieminnie
This is the first of two things (today) that I hold Ms. A(driana) responsible for. And I can’t remember life before her name.
The second way that A corrupted my life is, well my own fault mainly, but I got a new cell phone today…on pure impulse. Since I didn’t bring my gym clothes to work today, I headed directly back to my apartment, especially since I got out of work later today. I texted my dear friend on the way home about something else, adding a random question to see what phone we recently purchased. Still not sure why my fingers typed that question on my old, scratched up phone. But they did and the rest is history…
Gosh, Twitter and a new cell phone in one day. What a day! Actually it’s funny because Kristin said in an email today, with regards to our discussion about many things surrounding my need for a change, that I should either get a new job or a puppy. Well getting a puppy is a little bit more realistic probably, but instead I’ll stick with the new phone for now. Does anyone else have a Droid? It’s going to take me a few days to get used to it, but I already feel like I made the right move. Now if only I could figure out how to download my infamous Sex and the City theme song as the ringtone for my ladies then I’d be set…well sorta.
Apparently today is Wednesday. Wednesday night, to be exact. At this time tomorrow night I will be on my way to Columbus, OH via the lovely vehicle known as Megabus. OMG. I haven’t even finished packing yet! While I started on Sunday when I got back from Memphis, I haven’t done anything since then. On that note, and the fact that it’s 11 pm CT, I should probably sign off here and either pack or go to bed. But will I? New phone and new Twitter account, plus email messages to respond to…probably unlikely. How am I still awake?
Actually much to my own surprise, work wasn’t that bad today. If anything it went by very quickly as the day was filled with meetings and impromptu calls. Life at AFHK is far from perfect, but I got some advice from my brother last night that reminded me that I need to ‘make the best of the situation and concentrate on enjoying it’. Last night I thought it was bogus advice, but after a fresh start this morning I realize he was right. Thanks, Nick. If I learned anything from today it’s that something a change is necessary…and sometimes it’s a change in attitude that is needed.
‘Twitter is over capacity’ error message? Say what? I do love the whale…long story about Sarah and my little whale-collection hobby…but seriously? Maybe this is proof that my initial feelings about Twitter being ‘not for me’ were right all along. Stick with your initial instict right?
