Text Terms

Saturday 31st May 2014 – Second Post

You know when you message someone via text or Facebook message etc and people put things like LOL or LMAO, yeah I hate that. Whats the point in it? Sure it saves some time but really what you put is not what you mean. I have to be honest I have used LOL a few times (not many) and when I wrote it guess what, I did not laugh, at all. Some of them take quite a while for you to actually figure out what they mean, like GG (Good Game), it took me weeks to figure out what that meant (didn’t use Google etc.) and AFK (Away From Keyboard), I had to type that in the chat of the game I was playing.

I hate text terms, I also hate people who don’t use punctuation, I’m not great at using it but at least I attempt. Every time I look at my Facebook news feed I cringe at the poor grammar and punctuation, ‘got me sen a new bike’. This was on their a few days ago, In not even going to comment on it. Every time I type something I try to use capitals and punctuation, sometimes I forget but most times I don’t.

Please write properly, do not let the English language become a substitute

Sorry this post was a bit boring, busy day.

People, Stop Relying On Technology So Much!

Friday 30th May 2014 – First Post 

So I am guessing you have all noticed how dependent we have all become on technology, we all use it, if anything we use it too much (has no-one seen terminator?). Most people can’t go a day without there phones, actually forget that, most people can’t go an hour, that’s just ridiculous. I am lucky I don’t actually have a phone, well I do but the last time I used it was to activate my YouTube account and that was over a year ago. I do have an iPod that I use everyday for at least 3 hours but I don’t whip it out mid conversation and reply to a text. None of my friends ever really leave the house so I will use another example, well to be honest I don’t really have an example as my family aren’t really that bad, we do rely on technology like TVs and gaming systems but we could go without them no problem, we had a power cut for 4 days last year, finally read all my books, it was actually quite relaxing. So seen as I don’t have a good example watch the video below (if its their) and I am going to set you two people (probably less) a challenge, Go without your phone or some sort of modern technology for just one day, or just see how long you can go without using some, your car gps, phone, iPod, tablet, computer, TV, blender anything at all, just try it, then post your results đŸ™‚
