I am a social media junkie, and by social media, I mean Facebook, Twitter and WordPress. As I’ve stated before, the first two hours, at least, of every day of my life is spent drinkin’ coffee, smokn’ cigarettes and browin’ my social media. Yes, I know, I’m pitiful.
There are days however that said social media is a disappointment. For some reason, probably work or life related, people ain’t postin’ much and that just throws my whole day off kilter. As I have also said before, I live my life vicariously through those of others, mainly because I don’t have a life of my own to speak of.
My general routine is as follows:
Get up … obviously
Stumble to the bathroom … hey, who doesn’t do this?
Stumble and waddle to the kitchen, get my huge coffee mug, pour my coffee (try not to spill any)
Navigate my way back to my desk and plop, not sit, down.
Locate my mouse with half opened eyes and with the knowledge of the general whereabouts of said device.
Open my trusty Chrome browser
Go first to Facebook (since it automatically opens in a tab all it’s own on startup of browser)
Diligently read all the new posts that arrived durin’ my hours of semi slumber (Done)
Open Twitter, again read all the new stuff (Done)
Open Fox News, read all the terrible things that have happened in the world since last I checked (Done)
Open WordPress and locate all the blogs I follow that have posted somethin’ buried in all the garbage that the Reader insists that I might like to read (Done)
Repeat, numerous times
Now, on good days I can be kept happily occupied for the required two hours I need, on bad days I am left hangin’ with nothin’ but my coffee and cigarettes. Not fun. I am then required to open a different browser, because Netflix won’t work in my Chrome for some stupid reason and open Netflix and begin watchin’ House, M.D. Yes, I’m hooked on this show, I used to hate it … go figure.
In between my normal day to day duties that have to be performed I will watch an episode or two of House then get up and do somethin’ else that is required of me. Most times, durin’ an episode, I will get interrupted by somethin’ mundane, like lilman’s hunger or helpin’ mom with somethin’. (Lilman ain’t big enough yet for me to pawn off some of these duties on him.) On the bright side, the two other people in my house will play together, yes, mom will actually play because that’s just how she is, so the two of them will be occupied for quite some time.
After an episode or two I will invariably go back to Chrome and check my social media for any new updates durin’ my absence, yes, I know I’m missed but I do my best.
Such is my existence, now you know the excitin’ details of my everyday life. It really is like this every day unless there are instances of Dr. Appointments or the occasional escape to the grocery store.
So now you see the importance of social media in my life, so come on folks, get to livin’ (and postin’) so I’ll have somethin’ to do.
Thanks for readin’.
