In the recent months I have joined Instagram. It is an app for iPhone/Android users or anyone with a smartphone can join and have access to it. It is a website where you take photos from your Camera Phone photo files, and you pick and choose what you want to post on Instagram. I have almost 100 photos posted on there right now, but it will be increasing. I am very picky on photos I choose to post on Instagram.

However, it is important to be very careful of what you post on there as well that will not cause bullying, discrimination or anything of that sort.

If you would like to Follow me on Instagram and I will automatically follow you back. As stated above My name is Talin401 on there.

You can keep in touch with family, friends, and others if you like to as well and see their photos too.

There is also an app called Instasize, of where you can get your whole picture to fit on instagram if it is too big. try it out.

You can also hashtag #hashtag your posts so that it can be posted globally to whoever has instagram. For example, if you post a picture of yourself in New York City or Boston or you are traveling somewhere, you can write #boston #newyorkcity #newyork #nyc #bostonma #travel #traveling – Stuff like that. Make sure that you hashtag your posts if you like to of what is in relative to the photo.

How Dependent We Have Become Of The Internet

Just under 12 hours ago, I realized that It is crazy how dependent we are when it comes to the internet and how hooked people are. Last night Southern and Eastern Ontario, Canada Rogers Communications customers were ousted from an internet power outage that left people going haywire because the internet wasn’t working for a few hours, and a lot of people were angry, yelling, swearing and cursing, well, it depends on what you were doing online at that moment, but ladies and gentlemen, we shouldn’t dedicate our lives to the internet, there is a life out there waiting to be lived and we shouldn’t be so hooked into it, but nowadays technology has surpassed normal face to face communications, and the true essence of being together. That is the unfortunate part. Nothing beats face to face communication and togetherness. Unless your friends and family are hundreds or thousands of miles away and you want to Skype with them and talk to them and keep in touch.

Don’t let the internet take over your life. We bloggers, we social media guru’s, Web designers and all the people who are dependent on the internet, should balance life because being on the internet all day and being on the computer all day is not a great thing. Limit yourself, balance life, time management is key. A lot of people say they do not have the time of day and they say they don’t spend hours and hours online, but then again you see them online. It is a very sad situation we live in. Normal communication is at an all time low because were all in front of TV/computer/laptop/smartphones/tablets/ipad  screens and I have noticed people have speech impairment now, and do not really know what to talk to people about in person, but have an easier chance to talk to someone and come up with topics to talk about while on the internet and that makes it easy to communicate without even looking at each other. It shouldn’t be like that. People should be comfortable talking to each other face to face.

Last night was incredibly insane with all the twitter, facebook, and other social media messages read, with people going crazy because the internet is not available for a few hours. The internet power outage is a sign for people to live life, it is a sad situation and this may be a joke to some people, but it is not a joke. This is a very serious situation were all in. The internet is like a drug addiction and some people really need to butt out. As the years go by, technology has advanced so much that people do not know what to do anymore, and people are always out buying the latest gadgets and everything. I too spend time on the internet and everything, but I know my limits, and I prioritize everything in my life.  I am not saying all of us don’t prioritize, I am not saying that everyone does this. I am saying in general and I am saying to those who do. The internet is such a powerful tool for communications, research, homework, work, assignments, and the biggest information hub of the world and encyclopedia’s and books are not being sold as much. You know how great it felt when I actually opened up my diaries and looked at photos in a normal album? You know how good it was for me to open up things from my past in the boxes I have saved my precious and valuables? Its something that was a great feeling.

All I am saying is that don’t make the internet your life, and don’t be so dependent on it. That is what these carriers and communications networks wants us to do, but in the end your the one who makes the decision, but in my opinion in a unsolicited point of view, it is very important to live life outside the internet, and limit. I am not saying don’t go on the internet when you want to, but just know your limit and be within it.

Caught Someone Pretending To Talk On His Cell Phone Today

What a funny thing I witnessed today. I could not believe it with some people, I just couldn’t stop laughing. Today, I decided to go out to a coffee shop called Tim Horton’s and I ordered an Iced Latte. So I went and sat down. As I am drinking and relaxing for almost 10 minutes, I see this guy 2 tables down from me looking around and about, so 2 minutes later, he pulls out his phone and starts to talk, This ordinary guy, and so another 5 minutes goes by and he is still yapping on his phone about pointless stuff that makes him look ridiculous, then to his surprise, the phone rings twice while he is talking on his cell phone. The first person he saw was me and I looked at him and I shook my head and started to giggle. He felt so embarrassed and I can sort of tell, that he was pretending to talk on the phone. He just picked his Iced Cappuccino up and he left like no tomorrow humiliated .

Dude, if your going to pretend to talk with your cell phone, at least put it on silent. He had a blackberry same as Me and he is trying to show it off. I can’t believe it. So many people have phones these days and its not a rare occurrence.  He has to show off and try to look cool. I was sort of eavesdropping on his conversation because he was so close to me and I was alone having my Iced Latte, so he was going on about how his date was last night, how he had a blast, how he said Yeah I am going on a date with her again tonight, then a little bit of a pause to try and pretend that he is talking to someone else on the other side, and then he went on to talk again. I just laughed so hard. We didn’t say a word to each other after I caught him with his phone ringing loud by his ear.

Now, sometimes I wonder if people are actually talking on their cell phones in a public place, and I actually wonder if there is someone on the other line actually having conversations with these people. It’s happened again when I was flying to Vancouver, BC at the airport while waiting for my flight at the gates. This other guy was pretending to talk on his cell phone and it rang. This was at almost 8am in the morning just about to board my flight. It was so funny. I mean what do people gain by doing this stuff? It is beyond me. Maybe for self-satisfaction or something. I don’t know, but it is ridiculous and looks ridiculous.

Well, I am sure that guy today learned his lesson to never pretend to talk on a phone again. I sort of felt sorry for the guy, but it was a big time Epic Fail lol.
