What is the world coming to? Am I super old fashioned or what? Let me get this straight...not only is there Facebook and MySpace and Blogs and IPhones and texting and who knows what else, but now there's TWITTER. Apparently everyone has a twitter account. And I don't really get it but apparently you can follow other people and update it all day long and just tell the whole world what you're doing. Hmmmm....okay.....still don't get it. Does anyone just pick up a phone and call someone and tell them what they're doing? Or does the WHOLE WORLD need to know? Because now if you have a twitter account you can even "follow" celebrities like Brittney Spears and know what she does all day long too, sorry to say but I am guessing she's not going to "follow" you back.
Being pretty young myself you would think that I would know a little more about all this new technology and stuff, well I don't. I'm still trying to figure out this whole blog thing! I was reading an article not too long ago that says teenagers today are not learning the skills that they will need to know to get a job and interact with people out in the "real world". Well no kidding. I guess I'm not totally sure anymore but I would think you would have to have SOME verbal skills to get a job and work with other people. Maybe by the time teenagers right now get out in the job world they won't have to talk to each other, they can just text the person in the next cube. And can you imagine an interview?
Interviewer: What R UR best skills?
Interviewee: IDK, I worked 4 Target n got 2 manage....blah blah blah.
Okay that's kind of a lame example but you get the idea. My little sister is probably going to read this a shake her head at me and then maybe text me and say "pshhh, ur weird"
I guess I'm just out of the loop with all the new stuff out there. I am going to have to do better at keeping up with these things so when my kids come home with these things at least I know they exist in advance.
Anyway, we're on the bandwagon....you can follow us on Twitter! :)
It's also located conveniently on the right side of this blog for all to see as well.
Let us know if you're going to join the fad and "tweet" so we can follow you too!
