Trying out social media

I bought an actual working smartphone, so I’m starting to ACTUALLY live up to my label as “generation: social media”! I don’t know how it’s gonna work out, we’ll see!

So now I’m on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram. Okay.. I actually were using most of these things before, but not actively!

But anyway. Thought I could just as well make a post out of it, because all this technology and social media is really a big deal, right?

I get it. I spend hours and hours online every day. Chatting with people through Facebook and Skype, wandering through Instagram and Twitter, desperately watching stories on Snapchat. Why? Because it’s a way to keep myself entertained and I guess that’s what we all just try to do.

I’m not going to say whether this is bad or not, but it’s definitely affecting me and I guess it’s only going to affect me more now that I’m able to be using all these things all the time.

It’s not like I get anxious whenever I’ve spend a couple of hours without any connection. I don’t feel relieved either. I’ve never really thought about trying to sign off for a day or two (maybe I should. I don’t know if I’m even interested in trying). I know for a fact that I’m not the most addicted to all of this, but I’m not cold to the effects either.

It’s weird. I grew up in this world of technology, but when I was a kid it was only starting to get popular. Now it’s everywhere. My 8 year old Nephew has an iPhone. An old one, but an iPhone. I guess I was 12 or 13 when I got my first phone. A Nokia-something.

Actually I kinda hate writing about stuff like this. It makes me feel old. Am I supposed to feel that way at my age? Probably not. 21 is not that old. It’s not old at all.
