As always, I would like to describe my schedule as crazy busy. With work, workout, and housework fill a large chunk of my time, twenty-four hours a day and two weekend per week don’t seem enough. So, my language skills—writing skills, specifically— have gone rather blunt. Oh well… would anyone notice? Would anyone care? Would it matter?
To stay relevant within my busy *cough* lazy *cough* lifestyle, I would have to brach out to other social media. More importantly, a platform that allows me to share my thoughts at whim (without having to think them through or make sense of the head or the tail).

Twitter is the number one choice for broadcasting incomplete thoughts and blame it on the enforced character limit. Naturally, I joined the bandwagon. But I am easily overwhelmed by all the tweets out there. By the time I have read all the tweets from the people that I follow, I would have forgotten what I wanted to say in the first place. It is too flitting for me with people tweeting and replying to tweets at record breaking time. It’s a nice space to know the newest gossips or breaking news, but that’s about it. I miss having my own space like when I am on blogger. But, I don’t have time to compose a full blog post. Remember, I am sooo busy. It also feels odd to write a one liner in Blogger. So, what do I do?
This is where Tumblr tied everything together.

I can write as little or as long as I want on Tumblr. Typically I would use Tumblr to log my daily workout activity and post pictures that I have taken using my phone. These photos that I have included in this entry are reposts from my Tumblr. See? I am not that lazy. I still post stuff regularly. But instead of paragraphs, I would only include one-liners. One thing that somehow kept me going in the Tumblr-sphere is the reblog functionality which allows me to “curate” interesting stuff I found on Tumblr and put it on my page. Yay, laziness booster.
I actually don’t remember why I first joined Tumblr, but it took me awhile before I was actually active on there. My first impression of Tumblr is that it seems very juvenile—it still feels that way. But that was before I remember how much of a teenager the girl inside of me. I found a place where I can indulge in my Broadway obsession and adoring over Sutton Foster and Jonathan Groff. Tumblr had also introduced me to the BBC series—“Sherlock.” It’s one of the best show I’ve seen and I would have never thought of watching it if not for Sherlock’s GIFs flooding in my dashboard. I still don’t think I would watch “Dr. Who” though.

As for Instagram, I’ve avoided the application for so long. I just didn’t see the point of it, you add filter to the photos and share them on other social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc)? I just didn’t see the point of joining it. I mean I can post the photo directly and I already have other photo editor applications. But that all changed a couple weeks ago. Why? Because of a chance to win $500 gift card. All I had to do to be considered for the competition is to post a photo with the appropriate hashtag on Instagram. And just like that, I joined Instagram. But no, I am not that lucky. Since I already joined Instagram I figured I might as well make a full use of it. So, I will try to post more photos on Instagram—mostly pictures of food. And most likely, the post will be shared on Tumblr too. So, we’ll see where this goes. Or maybe I’d be too busy for Tumblr and Intagram too?
When not writing on this blog, I can be found at the following places:
But to be honest, I spend just as much time on Hulu and Netflix. Ooops.
