G L O S S Y P O S S E



DIGITAL MAGAZINES. BLOGS N' BLACKBERRY'S. LONG GONE ARE THE DAYS OF LETTERS, REFER DEXES AND ASKING YOUR BEST FRIENDS FOR THEIR HOME NUMBERS. NOW IT'S ALL EMAILS, E-VITES, FRIEND REQUESTS, PIN REQUESTS AND INSTEAD OF YOUR BEST FRIENDS LANDLINE YOU'VE ENDED UP WITH THIER FACEBOOK PASSWORD. IT SEEMS THE WHOLE WORLDS GONE ONLINE AND I'M QUICKLY REALIZING YOUR EITHER ALL IN OR OUT OF TOUCH. I RELY SO HEAVILY ON MY BLACKBERRY THAT THE DAY THE WHEEL BROKE MY ENTIRE WORLD AS I KNEW IT FELL APART. I COULDN'T EMAIL ON THE GO, I COULDN'T INSTANT MESSAGE MY MUM AND DAD, I COULDN'T USE TAX PAYERS MONEY TO LOCATE MYSELF VIA SATELLITE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD VIA BLACKBERRY GPS GOOGLE MAPS. I COULDN'T CHECK MY FACEBOOK IN TRANSIT AND I COULDN'T PLAY SOLITAIRE TWENTY TIMES A DAY. I COULDN'T EVEN GET THE WEATHER. WHICH MADE ME THINK THAT I TOO WAS A SLAVE TO ALL THINGS TECHNO, ALAS MY DAD'S BEEN TELLING ME LATELY (VIA INSTANT MESSENGER, HOLD THE EMOTIONS) THAT I AM NOT ACCESSIBLE ENOUGH. THIS KIND OF SURPRISED ME AS I THOUGHT THAT HAVING A BLOG ENTIRELY DEDICATED TO POSTING ONE'S THOUGHTS AND CROTCH SHOTS WAS FAIRLY "IN TOUCH". HE THEN SUGGESTED TWITTER. ("SAD FACE") ACTUALLY THAT I "JOINED HIM" ON TWITTER. ("REALLY SAD FACE") BY THIS POINT I WAS REALLY FEELING OUT OF TOUCH, UNCOOL AND EVEN THE FLASHING LIGHT ON MY BLACKBERRY SUDDENLY DIDN'T FEEL SO TECHNO SAVVY. EVEN THOUGH I REALLY DO BELIEVE TWITTER IS FOR OVER THIRTIES AND I REALLY DON'T WANT TO LET PEOPLE KNOW WHAT I ATE FOR BREAKFAST AND WHAT I'M GOING TO DO IN FIVE MINUTES- I DO WANT TO BE MORE "ACCESSIBLE" FOR Y'ALL SO I'M GOING TO PUT UP AN EMAIL ADDRESS SO YOU GUYS CAN GET TYPE HAPPY. IN THE MEAN TIME HERE'S AN INTERVIEW I DID FOR NEW E-MAG, GLOSSY. THE FIRST ONLINE MAGAZINE I'VE EVER READ OR FALLEN IN LOVE WITH. THE ONLY THING I HATE IS I CAN'T COLLECT THEM AND LEAVE THEM IN PILES AROUND THE HOUSE.

  8. I can't see the picture from the computer I'm on, but I know what you mean! I'm not exactly reliant on my cell, but I am on my laptop. And now it's broken, and I feel like I'm missing my left arm! I do miss the idea of letters and home phone numbers and notes though =(

  27. About the online life, ruling your life...I feel you. I have a list of things to accomplish before I'm 35 and one of them is to get rid of my online presence and drown my cell phone. I aspire to have only a land line phone that I will never answer, lol. I think sometimes we're just too connected, what is wrong with sending an actual hand written letter to your best friend every once in a while. I still do, I guess that's why I'm a member of the Letter Writer Alliance. Call me crazy or old fashioned but sometimes cyberspace noise, is just too loud and by no means romantic.

    I came upon your blog through bloglovin' :)
