Social Media Truly Moronic

I really do not like social media.   I’m not into texting although I would be open to try it sometime down the road but with texting costs that is one thing I won’t consider.  I was born before all that social media hype.   I’m just not into any of that.  I don’t like Facebook I recently deactivated my profile, I don’t like MySpace,Twitter, I don’t like any of it.   The internet has its purpose for looking up information on schools, among other stuff.   For me, the whole social media hype just does not work for me.  I guess you can form some friendships off of it but to me the whole social media thing is nothing but superficial reminds me of high school only worse.   Online friends?  pretty moronic I just can’t believe that your judged by how many friends or so called friends that you don’t even know, determines your worth….really?   And what I don’t particularly care for is you can chat online & there is no face to face interaction whatsoever.   Then you have these silly folks that pledge their undying love for a person that they’ve never met!   That’s just crazy.   I can say that social media has really never worked for me & I can say with all honesty that I did try it for some years & just like a bad relationship I’ve put a complete halt to ever wanting to use those sites ever again.   Although tonight when I watched Catfish the TV Show the episode that aired tonight was Lauren & Derek  they had been chatting for 8 years (really?) Yes they did & when Lauren, Nev, and Nev’s photographer friend drove out to Maryland to meet this guy he was actually the same guy in the photo on the social media page that Lauren had seen for all those years.   This was a Catfish first!  The two are about to be engaged.  Great episode, I wished that this same sort of thing could have happened for me.   But it didn’t.  However I’m still turned off by all social media.   Email, my blog site & that will pretty much be it.  I really do not like the 21st Century it truly does not agree with me at all.   I really miss meeting people face to face because that is what I’m used to everyone not this social media bullshit!  I prefer meeting people at parties fun ones, church, special occasion parties like Bar Mitzvahs, birthdays, special occasions, the holidays, that kind of thing because that is what I’m used to & for me that is the way only healthy way to meet other people.   Another way is to be introduced by someone you know.  Or find activities that you enjoy then you meet someone or friends that way.   See what I’m saying? For me social media spells trouble.   When I did have a Facebook page I only had one so I could log onto my email sites because now when you forget your email password the Facebook button is just a click away.   But then someone saw a post on an onsite support forum I had wrote then I made the mistake of chatting online.  Once that went sour I then swore off social media for good.    I will no longer chat online…except if I meet the person fact to face, only then will I chat online but I would just prefer talking on the phone.   I have to be honest I wished that I were born into another time.  The I wished I were born in say 1950 then I would be a young adult by the time the 1970’s rolled around &amp .   So perhaps the 70’s I would have had a full & satisfying life then just pass away right before all this social media hype.   I like none of it.   But I like some things about the internet .   I like blogging, I like looking up information, I like reserving library books online….eventually I’ll buy a Kindle now those I like.   But other things I just don’t much care for.  It makes me sad for those years past.   I get really heart sick and if it were possible I would jump into a time machine back to a time where I was most happiest & never return.   It could be the depression talking but that is how I feel.   I feel that I live in the wrong Century & the wrong city & state.   In today’s World it has gotten so very impersonal.   And that makes me real sad.

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down. "The person who sang the National Anthem sang the last note so high that no could reach it! That was intentional!" Belize from Tony Kushners play Angels In America. If you've read this far I will leave my email in case you want to leave me a msg. Those that are rude will get deleted immediately. Contact:
