I’ve recently read an article about people who are obsessed with blogging. These men and women jeopardize their careers, family, and social lives. They are constantly typing on the computer and getting laptop rashes on their legs. Honestly, who blogs that much?
I use blogs for venting about the day or days that I have currently had. To me a blog is a therapeutic mechanism that changes my look on life. But for these obsessed typers, blogging is life. They eat their breakfast, lunch, and dinners with a lightweight electronic device sitting on their laps. Can you imagine a life that solely consists of posts and URLs?
So the question here is…
Is obsessive blogging a good trait or a self destructive trait?
These bloggers get their feelings out instead of bottling everything up.
The more these bloggers post, the more their social life decreases.
A subject brought up to me while just hanging out with my friends: Most people watched the same type of movies when they were children, the Disney movies, right?. There are many from the Aristocrats, and The Lion King, to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and several more to be made (though never as good as the original ones). Most of us remember watching these movies, and most picked our favorites. The subject brought up was how adults were ever able to watch these movies with their children without being bored out of their minds. After a while I now understand how parents were able to sit through two hours of movies laughing at the film while the kids were paying attention to the video. The reason adults were able to watch the Disney movies were because of the subliminal messages in all of the movies. I really don’t think things like that should have been in children movies. How could parents have let their children watch these types of movies?
Today I found out about my brothers best friend getting into a car crash. When my mom told me she made it sound like Conor might die or have something seriously wrong with him. Therefore today is just a bad day ever since I woke up, and its not even noon yet. By now I know that he will soon be in surgery and should be turn out okay, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not freaking out a little bit. Not only am I worried about Conor, but it’s also gotten me worried about my own brother. If something like this happens to Conor then this could easily happen to Jacob, my brother, and that would just be worse. I hate that he is so far away, because if something does happen to him I can’t just see him to make sure that he is okay. I guess I will just have to hope for everything to be okay with Conor, and hope that nothing bad will happen to my brother too.
I understand that the series that Stephenie Meyer created named Twilight is what most teenage girls say are their favorite books, but i think that even though the vampires got “cool” so to speak, not everyone who writes a tv series, a movie, or a book has to be writing about some form of vampires whether they are the “good guys” or the “bad guys”. For example, I got through watching a new TV show to the CW. Not bad… sort of, but more vampires, really? I only wonder how many books have been created post Twilights’ publishing that are about more vampires. Shouldn’t there be a line drawn somewhere. How many more books I read are going to have blood-sucking “mysterious” human-looking people in them. To me by now it is just annoying. Pick different fictional characters to write about already. Please.
