twitter and facebook. facebook and twitter. you know what blog? i’m actually pretty glad that gale’s LCD is broken.
i guess one of the very strong reason why people need facebook and twitter (and also the reason why they update their status so much) is because people have the common need to broadcast their emotions.
why? it can be for showing off, though for what i don’t understand… maybe some people have that unexplainable need of telling other people that they’re tired… but for me, it’s like getting rid of poison.
i was struggling. really. i was in a constant battle of getting up from my chair and tweet all of the curse words that are compiled in my day to day vocab. (mind you, i don’t have much… and idk if that’s a good thing or a bad thing)
i was studying TOEFL and was so frustrated with the speaking section and how examples of the talks are just impossible to plan in 15 seconds!
and somehow you need other people to know that your struggling. it’s like: feel my pain. you know? even though you completely understand that it’s unnecessary for other people to know that you’re heartbroken, or that you fail in a test, or even like me, incoherently frustrated with life and the awesomeness of TOEFL examples, you broadcast it anyway.
*sigh* so i guess all of these tests are good in a way, right? good for me. good for my body. good for my self control… there’s a line in that TOEFL book that my good good friend Kevin lent to me that said:
how do you spend time? clearly, a certain amount of your time should be spent sleeping or relaxing. that is important to good health. however, you should think about how much time you spend worrying or procrastinating. that is not a healthy way to spend time. successful students have a schedule that helps them manage their time.
well, that is NOT very helpful. because despite everything, you always go back to twitter and/ or facebook to update your status of being ‘depressed’ or simply to say ‘omg i’m so tired’. because that helps… admittedly, not in a very effective way, but that helps to get rid of your jitters. however, that sentence does bring some sort of fresh air for a geeky student like me (i’m finally accepting that particular fact) and yea, i hope i benefit from it.
i’m not sure of my stance with my dear friends, facebook and twitter. i guess it’s a love-hate relationship from now on. it helps me, but at the same time, it restrains me (?) idk. let’s just hope that i’ll manage this twisted intoxicated… thing… that is slowly squeezing my insides out.
