Five Minute Friday with Lisa-Jo: unedited, no over-thinking or back tracking.
Write for 5 minutes on the word: CONNECT
Ok. I’ve done it. I joined twitter.
I had to, really. There was a group of people that I needed to connect with and it seemed the only way to do it, was on twitter.
So I signed up and tweeted my first tweet. Or is it twittered my first twitter? Or tweeted my first twit?
Trying to connect with people and navigate through @symbols and #hashtags is probably how my mom feels when she tries to operate the
VCR DVD player. No joke.
But I know once I get familiar it, it will either be another great way to make friends and communicate instantly, or will become a huge distraction for me. Knowing this ahead of time, I need to be careful and wise how I proceed. Gotta make sure I don’t have another Facebook incident.
But I am truly fascinated that my kids are growing up in an age where borders and oceans hold no boundaries to the connections and friendships they will be able to form and grow.
They will have no idea what it was like “when I was growing up”… man, I feel old.
Like the other day when I was taking my kids to school… my daughter started complaining that she left her water bottle home.
Me: It’s not a big deal, sweetie. We didn’t carry water bottles around when I was growing up. We just drank from the drinking fountains.
Her: What? They had drinking fountains when you were growing up?
