Twitter

This post is probably gonna be a short one.  But I just wanted to comment on this topic.  I found it very funny that there was such an upheaval this week with Twitter revoking UberTwitter's privileges.  A few years ago Twitter was such a small community and now millions of people are upset by an app not working on their phone.  I am pretty new to Twitter but I've got to say it's been annoying.  All of the other applications are just not the same.  I can't wait for UberTwitter now apparently named UberSocial's return.

That's all for now...G'night everyone!

Valentine's Day

I was told I need to blog more, and since today is such a talked about "holiday" I thought I'd put my two cents in on the day.

I, in true Valentine's tradition, wore all black today, I have done so since high school.  Contrary to what most people might think, I am not bitter...although to be honest it probably started out that way...  I wear black because, well, it's tradition...and because who wants to do what everyone else does and wear pink or red anyway?!  I actually hate this so called 'holiday' because in my opinion there shouldn't be one day set aside where people are suppose to be romantic and try to "prove" to each other how much they love each other.  If you wait till Valentine's day to be romantic, then you are not much of a romantic at all.

I'm all for traditions, so if you have a tradition to send flowers, buy cards, go out to dinner, etc. then I'm all for it. For example, my Grandma sends us Grandkids cards with $2 bills inside.  She has done this ever since I can remember.  She thought about stopping the tradition a year or so ago, and several of us, including me, protested.  Why break with tradition?  Do I need a $2 bill?  No, but it's tradition!  That being said, don't send flowers or cards just because you're 'suppose to'...be original.

So...consider this blog to be my warning to any future/potential Valentine's of mine.  Be spontaneous, be original, do something personal that matters to you and I...and not just on Valentine's day.  I don't want to celebrate our relationship/love/whatever on the same day that everyone else celebrates theirs!  I want different!  I want unique...one of a kind!

That all being said.  I hope you ALL had a wonderful Valentine's Day and you spent it exactly HOW you wanted to with exactly WHO you wanted to.  Much LOVE to you all!

Pictures & Memories

I have been looking through pictures a lot recently and thinking about the memories that go along with those pictures.  Even though a lot of the most recent pictures are related to my relationship with 'you know who' (and if you don't know who just pretend...thanks!) I am actually very happy to have those memories!  There are pictures from the night that I met him, my favorite picture of the two of us, a couple holidays, his birthday, and even our last night out together which incidentally was probably the night that ended our relationship.  At first it hurt to look back at those pictures, because I was so happy in them and that happiness had been taken away from me.  But I am proud to say I have finally gotten to the point that looking through those pictures doesn't hurt.  I am happy to have those pictures and the memories that go with them.  I was really happy when those pictures were taken and I like remembering how happy I felt, I think it has helped to remind myself that I'll get there again...when I'm ready.

I have never been much of a picture taker.  I've had a camera for a while, and continue to get new ones.  Each time I get a new camera I think that I'll take pictures more, but then I never do.  I carry a camera around with me in my purse and it almost never comes out.  I am, however, lucky enough to know a lot of people that do love to take pictures, and I'm grateful for them because they have given me so many pictures to accompany thousands of memories.  If you are those photo takers in my life just know that I appreciate you more than you know!

Now...a quick reflection of some of my favorite photos....
