Thoughts on Social Media: The Consequences of Sharing Everything

As I mentioned in my post last week, I have a lot of thoughts on social media, especially as someone who has grown up when it was starting to become more widely used.

I remember in 8th grade (so this is around 2007-2008…ish), a friend of mine made a Myspace page for me, as I didn’t want to make it myself. She prompted me to check it out, and from there, my use of social media began. Freshman year of high school, Myspace became unpopular for my age group, and I got a Facebook page. Then, during my freshman year of college, I started using Snapchat, and in junior year I got a Twitter to use for one of my Marketing classes. Since then, I’ve added Instagram to my portfolio of social media, although I mainly use it for this blog, and rarely post anything on my personal account.

Generally, I’ve never been obsessed with being on social media, or at least posting anything on any of my personal accounts. I never was into Vine (I think this was mainly because it was popular for high schoolers when I was in college), and even though I watch YouTube and have posted some videos, I don’t really comment on other videos or interact with people directly on it. That’s why I find the world of social media so interesting, especially for teenagers who have grown up during a time when social media has been constantly in their life, and it’s more widely used than before.

I also want to add that social media isn’t a doom and gloom experience for everyone. You can obviously go on social media and find enjoyment in meme accounts, or comedy TikTok’s; there’s nothing wrong with that. However, it’s easy to get recommended content you don’t necessarily want, especially on TikTok. There is also a lack of regulating content on TikTok that’s a major issue, even if the post clearly breaks community guidelines.

Although this post started out as mainly a continuation of a point I mentioned from last week’s post, I’ve watched some videos from Youtuber’s criticizing TikTok and the content it allows on its platform. They’re very interesting videos, and I’ll link them below, as I highly recommend checking them out:




I find the critiques about TikTok interesting, because it brings up a point which I remember being drilled into my head when I was younger and social media was first becoming popular:

Everything you post online is easy for anyone to access, from strangers to future employers. Even if you have private accounts, it’s easy for people who follow you on these accounts to share it with the public at large.

One story that has stayed with me all these years is the story of a teacher who lost her job, simply because her Facebook profile picture was her holding a beer in one hand, and a glass of wine in the other. She wasn’t drinking either of them, just holding them up and smiling. A parent found the teacher’s profile, and complained about the picture, which ultimately led her to being fired.

There are many similar stories about teachers who have lost their jobs over social media blunders, but honestly no employee in any industry is truly safe from the consequences of their social media posts. One of the most infamous cases is that of Justine Sacco, the PR Executive from IAC, who posted the following tweet while on her way to South Africa:

“Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m white!”

As we all know, even though she had less than two hundred followers, the tweet made its way around the world as she flew there, unaware of how the Tweet was gaining traction. By the time she landed, she received multiple messages, including one from her manager, informing Sacco that she was fired.

So, after all these instances of people being fired from social media posts, why is it that there are still many teens nowadays not aware of the consequences of posting on social media?

To a certain extent, it’s easy to forget that when you’re a teenager, it’s hard to think of the long term consequences of your actions. As is perfectly summed up by the University of Michigan:

“It is normal for adolescents to have a sense of being uniquely invincible, to have an “it will never happen to me” mind-set. This way of thinking may limit their ability to assess situations, risks, and future consequences. As a result, they may engage in risky behaviors and test authority.”

Even then, with some of the content being posted online (such as the racist or sexist TikToks, along with the ones perpetuating unhealthy perceptions of mental illness) that was mentioned in the videos linked above, goes beyond just that. It makes us question what exactly are we teaching future generations about these topics, about what is okay and not okay to do/say. We also need to realize that there will always be people, whether they’re teenagers or not, who will say things just to appear “edgy” or “cool” or for the shock value. These things tend to be shared more, as people may want to spread awareness about how this isn’t right, but at the same time, it just boosts the popularity of the post, and a person’s “clout” (I felt old just saying that… and I’m only 25 😂😂).

This phenomenon of wanting to be popular, or having everyone know your name is nothing new in the grand scheme of  things. The only difference now is that we can now watch more content where the questionable actions of teenagers is on display, and not only that, but it’s easier to share. Not only is it easier to share, there are more people willing to go to any means to “cancel” people over this content.

Before I continue, I want to take a quick minute to talk about cancel culture, and its consequences. In my opinion, I think that people shouldn’t be canceled if they are able to own up to their mistakes, and learn from them, as none of us are perfect. We are all still learning how to be better people, no matter if we’re 15, 35, or even 85. Growth and learning never stops at any age. HOWEVER, I think it’s important to call someone out on harmful thoughts and behavior (such as racism, sexism, etc.). At a certain point though, if someone repeats this behavior, no matter how many times its been brought up, and they aren’t making an effort to change, it may be time to reconsider who you follow on social media. You cannot force someone to do something they don’t want to do, especially when it comes to putting in the effort to change. In the end, people are only going to change if they are willing to change.

Now that I’ve said my piece on that, let’s get back to the actual post!

Even when I was first on Myspace and Facebook, people may have posted questionable things, but at the time, there wasn’t as much of a culture in sharing things to gain “clout” (Yep, still hate that word 😂). Especially right now with COVID-19, everyone is spending more time online and especially on social media, and with everyone being more isolated and able to spend time creating content as well as viewing said content, the more likely a chance of something being shared.

So the real question is, how do we help alleviate this issue, especially during this period of time?

Bringing awareness to the consequences of sharing and creating content just to become popular is incredibly important. Talking about your own experience with social media, and sharing videos like the one’s above can show how even though we seem to be lecturing old farts, we understand better than one might think. Especially when it comes to milennials, a fair amount of our generation grew up during the rise of social media, and witnessed firsthand the mistakes of those older than us. They made us realize the impact of not being mindful on social media. There’s a reason why so many people create accounts that don’t include their real name, or even a picture of themselves; for protection and privacy. Obviously, this is something trolls do as well so that they can spew whatever garbage they want anonymously, but I know plenty of people who want to retain some form of privacy while spending time online.

In the end, all I’m saying is we should be mindful of what we post online. Even if we think something we post is going to stay private, it’s way too easy for our content to be shared, and have real life consequences. Take some time off from social media and I don’t know, do a puzzle, take a walk around the neighborhood, or even try creating something just for yourself, and no one else. As we all know, spending too much time on social media can affect our mental health, and in inadvertently through what we post, it can affect those who follow us. It’s easy right now to get sucked into spending hours online, as we can’t really leave the house to go out and hang with friends or go for a hike, but we just have to get creative with how we spend our time now.

To finish this off, ask yourself:

Is there a hobby you’ve been wanting to try out, but have never had the time to before?

Are there at home workouts you’ve been meaning to try out, but haven’t?

Are there topics you’ve been wanting to research and learn more about?

It’s difficult, as we’re in an unprecedented situation that has been affecting us, mentally, emotionally, or even physically. Don’t be afraid to reach out to friends or family, or if you’re in a position to do so, look into online therapy. Do what you need to do to take care of yourself, as long as it’s not harming yourself or anyone else.

Next week, I want to talk about the impact of social media on mental health, as it’s also something I’ve been thinking about a lot recently. For now though, that’s all I have for today, thanks for reading, and I will talk to you all later!

These are some of the ships that were displayed around the park including (from left to right): An X-Wing Starfighter (of course), a First Order TIE Echelon, and an A-wing Star Fighter.



The Millenium Falcon, which is right outside the line for The Millenium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Now that Rise of the Resistance is open, as soon as Disneyland opens back up, I would love to ride that too!

Being Lost in Your 20’s: 25 year old

As my 26th birthday draws near, I’ve been reflecting on a lot of things recently, especially with the lock down. After all, there’s only so much we can all do

As far as my 25th year on this planet, I ask myself:

Was it a good year? A bad year? Or just a year?

Last year, I had written a post called Being Lost in Your 20’s: 21 year old and a second post titled Being Lost in Your 20’s: 21 year old Pt.2.

As I originally had all these thoughts right after graduating, I wanted to do an update post, since it’s been a few years and things have changed. Plus, with all this reflection, I’m hoping to figure out what exactly this year has been for me.

Am I still lost?

Yes, but not in the same way I was when I was 21, and my thoughts on being lost are a bit different now than they were before.

Without further ado, here are my thoughts on being lost in your 20’s, as a 25 year old.

When I was 21, I had graduated from college, and thought I would find something in Colorado. Life proved me wrong, and about six months after graduation, I ended up moving back home. From there, I worked several different retail and customer service jobs, at Target, Vons, Forever 21 and now Barnes and Noble (although, right now I’m not exactly working there, I am still an employee of the company), where I’ve met so many different people from various backgrounds and life experience. After hearing their stories and going through my own ups and downs, I’ve learned many different things, but the main lesson I learned is that there is no one way to “live life” or “be successful”.

We all have our own paths we take throughout life, whether it’s a result of the choices we made or the things that happen to us. Ultimately, what it comes down to is not when you accomplish your goals, but actually accomplishing your goals. It may take you longer to achieve what you want in life, but this just means that you have more time to grow and learn about yourself along the way. Sometimes, when we take the time to grow and reflect, we may even realize that what we believed was our ultimate goal, isn’t really important to us anymore. Through whatever journey you have taken, you may have realized that there is something else you want to focus on now in life, and that the original plan you had, isn’t what you want to do anymore.

And that’s okay.

It may be scary to think about how you’ve been working towards something for a long time, to suddenly realize it’s not what you want to do anymore. Yet, if this isn’t making you happy anymore, and really isn’t important to you now, why would you continue putting all your time and energy into something you don’t care about? It’s risky to suddenly abandon one path for another, especially if we are uncertain about this new path we want to pursue. Although, we are living in times that are full of uncertainty, and it will be more useful to embrace the fact that uncertainty will always play a part in our lives, even after everything “settles down.

It’s scary, dealing with the uncertainty of life, but it’s not the only thing that stops people from taking a risk. When we look into pursuing a different path, we might also realize it will put us “behind” in comparison to the people we know. I’ve struggled with this notion of comparing myself to other people, especially after graduating college, and having watched the path of those who graduated in my class. From my perspective, they have all been successful in their own way and found happiness along the way. When I reflect on my own life, I wonder, what exactly have I accomplished? What have I done since graduating?

Even though I know we all have our own ways of navigating life, it’s difficult to not compare yourself to others. This is especially true when we are struggling while it seems as though everyone else has it together. As we all know, in a logical sense, this is never the case, although in our hearts we don’t seem to understand. Every one of us deals with our own struggles, it’s just some people hide it better, or struggle more internally than externally.

Social media also makes it more difficult to see how others struggle, as we constantly see the positive highlights of someone’s life, while  our own problems sit right in front of our face. For me personally, I have issues being on social media because of my own insecurities, so I limit the amount of time I spend on there, and use that time to focus more on my social media pages for this blog, rather than scrolling through all the highlights. If I notice myself starting to feel down, I log out and either work on my writing or watch something on Netflix or YouTube that will make me happy.

(Honestly, I could go on a huge tangent about my thoughts on social media, but I figure that would be better to cover in its own post, so I don’t stray too far from the topic at hand).

Overall, you need to do what makes you happy, and in that regard, it may mean that your life isn’t going to look like a lot of people who are in your generation. Everyone lives life their own way, they cope in their own ways, and they grow at their own pace. Comparison is the thief of joy they say, and I am trying my best to remember it everyday. I do what I can to focus on making myself better so that I can accomplish what I want to accomplish, and not pit myself against others when there’s no need.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and thank you for reading! I will see you all next with something new ✌

Doctor Who Book Tag

For those of you who don’t know… along with reading and writing, something else I love is Doctor Who. I was introduced to it by a friend my senior year of high school, and I became obsessed.  I recently found a channel on YouTube that does awesome video essays about the show, and it’s reignited my obsession 😂

I found the tag from Bookish Queen Blog, but the original tag was created by Becoming Bookish (although their site appears to not be public anymore, so unfortunately I can’t link it).

Anyways, without further ado, here is the Doctor Who Book Tag!


Untitled designTHE CLASSICS

A classic book that still fits into YA literature

I’m going to go with Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, as I’ve seen it stated as a classic by others, and it was the first book to come to mind!

I can go on about Laurie Halse Anderson and her writing, but I won’t do that here, so if you want to hear more of my thoughts on her work, you can check out my post here!


christopher-eccleston-doctor-who-590x350THE NINTH DOCTOR (AKA Christopher Eccleston)

A book you feel is very underrated

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden. I’ve only seen maybe two people talk about it since its release a few years ago, and with the beautiful writing style along with the gorgeous storytelling, more people need to talk about this book (and the rest of the trilogy as well!) If you haven’t read it yet… then you should, right now! Haha



A book or series that was hard to say goodbye to when it ended

There are two series that come to mind for me: Sweep by Cate Tiernan (which I’ve talked about before on here) and The Blue is for Nightmares series by Laurie Faria Stolarz. I read them when I was in middle school/ high school and re-read them multiple times because I couldn’t accept that the series were finished 🤣


7b924a9765680b92ce96cf756200ef09MATT SMITH

A book that made you smile

I would go with Simon vs. The Homosapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, as I also read it when I was in a reading slump, and I read it one sitting because I thought the story was adorable!


Doctor_x_Rose-9560ROSE AND TEN

One of your ships that never sailed

In all honesty, I’m not a big “shipper” person, but I’m going to go ahead and say Cameron and Jennifer from Sweethearts by Sara Zarr.




A book that you blinked and it was over

We are Okay by Nina LaCour. It was such a fast read, and I enjoyed every second of it! If you want more of my in depth discussion of this book, you can check out my review of it here!



A book you want to exterminate

The first book that comes to mind is The Catcher in the Rye, because I absolutely hated this book 🤣 Although, I also really didn’t like The Great Gatsby (I know, I’m a heathen, it’s okay I can live with that if I never have to read it again haha). Maybe it’s because I had to read them both for school… but I have no desire to revisit either of those books in the future


Bowties+are+cool_16225b_3563658BOWTIES ARE COOL!

A bandwagon you jumped on early

The only book I can think of is Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, because I read it back when it came out in 2007, at the ripe old age of 12. Although, re-reading the book and watching the first season of the show… I definitely don’t have the same feelings about it now as I did when I first read it, that’s for sure.

In other words, I used to like it, but not so much anymore.


f516168531fbe06615ed9dc5f941dca4RUN YOU CLEVER BOY, AND REMEMBER…

A book with an awesome plot twist that you didn’t see coming

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, well actually… I’d say both books in the duology. 😉 Man, I loved that series.



A book with hard to pronounce names or titles

I’ve got nothing for this one 🤣🤷‍♀️


nintchdbpict000367331811THE T.A.R.D.I.S

A book that took you back in time

The Earth’s Children series by Jean M. Auel. It’s literally a historical fiction series that’s set during the Ice Age.  I only got halfway through the third book before stopping, but I want to pick the series up again and finish it sometime in the future!


That’s all I have for today! If you are a fan of Doctor Who and want to do this tag, go for it! Tag me in your post cause I would love to see your answers!

On that note, stay safe and healthy everyone, and I will talk to you in the next post!

Creative Dumping Ground #19

Take it, I know you’re scared. But please, Just take a breath. As one breath is all it takes, To have another ten. Then soon, You will get past this. You will survive, So that you can live and thrive.

Apparently, WordPress is letting only one of the four images I created upload properly each week (maybe even per a post… I’ll have to do some more experimentation), so here’s another one of those images I talked about in last weeks post. 🤷‍♀️


Anyways, I hope you all are taking care of yourselves, and your loved ones are well.

Thank you for reading, and I will see you in the next post! Stay safe and healthy ❤

Creative Dumping Ground #18

Hey everyone, I hope you’re staying safe and healthy during these times!

I wasn’t sure what to post today, as I’ve been working on blogs for other sites, and I wanted to do something that didn’t involve a lot of writing, so I decided to go ahead and do another creative dumping ground because… I also haven’t done one since October 😱

Anyways, here are some fun Canva creations that revolve around a poem I wrote a few years ago, back in the day when I used to post one Prose. This particular piece wasn’t based on a challenge, it was just a thought I had 🤷‍♀️

Anyways, enough of me rambling… I hope you enjoy!

Take it, I know you’re scared. But please, Just take a breath. As one breath is all it takes, To have another ten. Then soon, You will get past this. You will survive, So that you can live and thrive. (3)


Due to some technical difficulties, this is the only Canva creation of mine I can post. I had three more, but for some reason they weren’t uploading to WordPress correctly… So I will try to figure this out!

Other than that, I wanted to mention the featured image I added to this post is from when I was trying to change the banner image on this site, but the image was too small to fit. If I had left it, there would have been this weird awkward looking grey space. I really liked this banner though, and since I can’t use it for my blog banner, I might as well include it here!

Anyways, after that short aside, I think that’s about all I have for today. Thank you for reading, and I will see you guys next week with a new post!

My Favorite Episodes From One Day at a Time on Netflix


Hey everyone, I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy!

Right now, the world is a mess, and I think we could all use a short break from everything happening. Today, March 24th, is the season four premiere of One Day at a Time, on the TV channel, Pop. It was originally produced by Netflix, and the first three seasons are still on there. However, Netflix didn’t renew One Day at a Time for a fourth season because of low viewership (according to them), but with the amount of outcry against the decision, Pop picked the show up for its fourth season.

The current, One Day at a Time is a re-imagining of the show from the seventies, set in present times. It follows Penelope, a single, Latinx mother (of Elena and Alex) and nurse living with her Cuban mother (Lydia), all while dealing with their landlord (Schneider), who’s essentially am honorary member of the family. Before working as a nurse, Penelope was a member of the military and was deployed over to Afghanistan.

Besides the fact it’s a hilarious and heart warming show, there are many reasons why I enjoy watching One Day at a Time. I love how each episode teaches you something, but balances it out with the comedy in a way to avoid sounding preachy, which works, for the most part. It also gives the younger generation a chance to laugh at ourselves, as Lydia is a good juxtaposition to Elena, and though she pokes fun at her, Elena also pokes back, so the back and forth is mutual. After all, if we can’t laugh at ourselves, then what is the point in life?

The back and forth between Elena and Lydia also depicts the classic squabble between the older generation and the younger generation. The times are changing, and it’s hard for those who grew up in the past, where the values and culture was different, to adapt to some of the new aspects of our culture that have arisen over the years. One Day at a Time covers this dissonance in a manner that is comedic, rather than attacking or shaming either generation.

For today’s post, I want to talk about my favorite episode from each of the past seasons, so without further ado, here are a few of my favorite episodes from One Day at a Time!


Season 1 Episode 13: “Quinces”

odaatThe last episode of season 1, “Quinces” follows Elena’s quinces, which has been an ongoing storyline the entire season. In an earlier episode in season one, Elena comes out to her family as gay, and though it was a shock at first, everyone readily accepted it. As a result, Elena decides to come out to her dad, since everyone else had been accepting of her sexuality. However, Victor isn’t supportive, and though he goes to Elena’s quinces, he leaves before the father daughter dance. Elena is heartbroken, being left out alone on the dance floor as “De nina mujer” plays overhead, so Penelope goes out and joins her, followed by Alex, Lydia, Schneider and Dr. Berkowitz. Even though Elena didn’t receive the support she wanted from Victor, the rest of her family and friends were there to remind her that she is loved, no matter what.

“Quinces” is an emotional rollercoaster, as it was awesome seeing Elena be so happy to have been celebrating her quinceanera, when in the beginning of the season, she had been dead set against having one. Then, when Victor left her behind, what could have been an even more depressing moment was saved by the support of Elena’s family, along with Schneider and Dr. Berkowitz. I think we all need a reminder how  there will be situations or choices in our lives that won’t elicit support from certain people we love, we can find support elsewhere, even from the most unlikely places.

Season 2 Episode 9: “Hello, Penelope”


The episode, “Hello, Penelope” is a great example of how mental health can impact your day to day life, especially if left untreated. Penelope is at a great point in her life; everything seems to be going amazingly with her relationship with Max, the kids are in a good place, and her relationship with Lydia is good as well, so she goes off her meds and stops therapy.

At first, Lydia, who is very traditional, doesn’t support Penelope taking antidepressants or going to therapy, and is happy for Penelope. In her own words, Lydia is relieved Penelope isn’t  going to her “cuckoo party” anymore.

However, as Penlope stops taking care of her mental health, her life begins to spiral, and though nothing changes externally, internally, Penelope is suffering.

Lydia is heartbroken seeing her daughter suffer like this, and turns to the church to help understand what is happening. In confessional, the priest tells Lydia although she can’t fix her daughter, she can support Penelope while she fixes herself. Lydia realizes though she personally doesn’t understand or need medication for her mental health, Penelope does, and that’s okay.

By the end of the episode, Penelope is back on her meds and returns to group therapy, because it is her way of maintaining her mental health. This is one of my favorite episodes from season two because of the way it addresses mental health and the stigma that still surrounds it.

Season 3 Episode 2: “Outside”


This episode is one of the most quoted episodes from the series, in my opinion. Its take on consent and the treatment of women in society is refreshing to see, especially as you see it from the perspective of three different generations.

It all starts with Penelope and Lydia learning about Alex’s “Finsta”, or his fake Instagram account. They see him post updates about his date with Chloe (his new girlfriend), and some of the posts make Penelope uncomfortable. When she shares it with Elena and Lydia, both are shocked, then Elena gets mad about how Alex is acting. We also find out that Lydia encouraged Alex to keep pursuing Chloe even though she had already turned him down, and Elena grows even more angry, as it seems more like Chloe was pressured into going on the date. After Alex gets home, a conversation about consent and respect ensues, and we find out how Elena and Syd were harassed by a couple of guys on the bus the previous week, and it made them so uncomfortable, they didn’t want to go out in public again, instead opting to stay inside and play video games.

I appreciate how the episode brings up a lot of different discussions surrounding the topic, like from the guys point of view for example, and are able to rebuttal common arguments and disgruntled comments behind the idea of consent.

It’s a great episode to start off the third season, and also a great conversation starter when it comes to be respectful towards others when it comes to romance and sexuality.



What was your favorite episode (or episodes) from the past three seasons?

Are you planning on watching the premiere on Pop TV?

Finding My Purpose: Second Week of March

As I continue through the month of March, I realize my interests and purpose are focused on continuing my work with my writing and getting myself back into reading. Instead of trying to overextend myself, I will keep the focus there, and branch out more in those areas.

In other words, I won’t be following the original article that I started off with anymore, and that’s okay. That’s a part of life; finding something to inspire you, and then be flexible and let it reflect your own wants and needs.

Now that I’m done with that part, let’s talk about what I’m reading!

download (3)Reading wise, I am currently working through two books, the first being To All The Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han, as I watched both movies on Netflix, and it made me want to read the books. The second book I’m reading is a non-fiction book about anxiety called On Edge by Andrea Petersen. download (4)

*Since writing this post and recording the video, I have since finished To All The Boys I Loved Before*

51zBNlws71LI also finished reading The House of Broken Angels by Luis Alberto Urrea, and wanted to share my thoughts on it, through another video! It’s been fun doing these chill, chatty videos as it gives me a break from writing, and I still have some way to talk about what I’m reading!

Here’s the video, I hope you enjoy!







Thank you for reading and watching, I will see you guys next week with a new post!
