Connected…

The first thing I grab in the morning before I even open my eyes is my cellphone. I can’t live without it, or WiFi. My phone, tablet and laptop are my lifeline. They are my connection to the world.

Checking and replying to emails, chatting on Facebook and browsing through Twitter on my phone; listening to music on my iPod, reading a book on my Kobo… Gadgets seem to run my life.

And yet there was a time when the only way you get to hear about what’s happening with the world is through television or radio. The only way you get in touch with family and friends is through the telephone or snail mail. There was a time when Google wasn’t even a word.

But do I really want to be “unplugged” now that I know everything I want is at the tip of my fingers? Now that the world is not so big after all even though I’m thousands of miles away from my family because I get to see what’s going on with them through social media? Now that the news and the weather is updated constantly on my phone? Maybe not…yet.

Someday, perhaps, when I have everyone I love around me, that I wouldn’t mind to be disconnected to the rest of the world…

High School Reunion

Been delinquent in updating my blogs lately. Found myself busy and hanging out in Facebook more often this past week.

My email inbox almost full, my cellphone and iPad going crazy with push notifications almost every minute and all because of this 1 page with most of the alumnae from my High School. Former school mates from all over the globe posting and commenting 24/7. It was crazy, and i love it!

It’s fun to reminisce and chat with old schoolmates. Bitter sweet memories with friends and foes; funny anecdotes from teachers; favorite places to hang out in; lessons learned and so many other stuff. Feels like being in school again.

I don’t know how long it’ll last though, but as long as there are people posting and commenting on the page, that’s where I’ll be untill the novelty of it dies down.

2000++ comments and still counting. Nowhere near the world record of 9000, but it's fun trying to at least get close to it.

Race

I feel I have too many internet sites…

I have Tumblr, Multiply, and WordPress plus Downelink, my LBTG account, for my blogs; I have Twitter and Plurk for micro-blogging (though my Plurk account died a slow natural death), I have Facebook, Friendster and LinkedIn for social networking; Youtube and Flickr, my video and photosharing sites…

Wow! Didn’t realize just how many, but, wow…

I know I won’t be able to maintain all these, so I guess it’s survival of the bestest…

Plurk and Friendster have already taken their place at the last of the race without a fight;

LinkedIn, Youtube and Flickr are just taking their sweet time and not being very competitive at all;

Facebook is still on the lead followed by Downelink and Twitter who are neck and neck;

Next comes WordPress then right at its tail is Multiply, and a few paces at the back is Tumblr…

Let’s see who wins…
