Monday Morning Musings

Well firstly, I’d like to thank The Tab on Facebook for getting The Vengaboys stuck in my head this early in the morning (it’s 5am by the way, I’m writing this at 5am). Good morning! How was your weekend? I’m alright, thanks, just a bit sleepy. Rachel’s flight is at 7am so she wanted to leave here early enough to give herself time for breakfast at the airport. It was a good weekend but I’m actually now looking forward to getting some serious revision done! Once I wake up again because let’s face it I’m about to go back to sleep. 
As is my normal routine, I looked at my Timehop today and realised that 6 years ago I was writing in slang constantly – no wonder English wasn’t my strong point! My musings of this morning, however, are when did I resort back to actual typing? Yes, I still use some slang when on Facebook messenger or texting, and who doesn’t shorten words to make your tweet the right number of characters on Twitter? Our generation get slated for our addictions to technology and social media. While I can admit that I have a small addiction, it’s not only our generation. My 60 year old Dad spends hours just scrolling through Facebook, unsure if I shared something or just liked it. My 75 year old granny has a better laptop than me and is always on her iPad, checking the weather and, again, browsing Facebook. So when did it become a crime to use the technology given to us? 
I love my phone and my laptop. My life wouldn’t stop without them, but they are now an integral part of my day to day life. It’s why I don’t feel guilty for being away from my blog or Twitter on Saturday. I was with family and enjoying a family day out. Didn’t even have headphones on in the car!
What’s your opinion on the whole technology/social media debate?

  1. Bless your Dad and your Granny! And it’s true, our phones and laptops are with us alllll the time, like pretty much everyone uses their phone everyday don’t they? I didn’t used to use mine as much but I think since blogging I’ve started using it a lotttt more& I really do wish I had the willpower to wake up at 5am well done you! Plus, you’re right not to feel guilty; family time is family time, taking a day off Twitter to spend time with your family is the way it should be! Great post, I look forward to your next one 😀 xxx

  2. Haha even now I’m sitting with the laptop on Netflix, revision around me on my desk, and my phone to the right of me for any notifications coming through! I’d definitely agree, if it weren’t for blogging I wouldn’t be on it half as much but then again I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you! Have a great day 😊💜 xxx
