{First Taste of Autumn}

October 8, 2014 § Leave a comment

We had simply marvelous weather over the weekend and just had to take advantage of it! What’s the best thing to do in 60-degree weather? Hike, of course! I didn’t get pictures of the treacherous part of the hike; too much concentration was being used not to slip off of fallen logs and into murky, swampy water! We had a fun- if not short- 12  miles. Enjoy! :)

In response to Clive Thompson’s article “The New Literacy.”

Journal Prompt: Has your time spent on social media helped or hindered your writing ability?

My response:

“Between blogging, instagramming, and tweeting, social media plays a big role in my written communication.  I definitely think that time spent writing online, particularly blogging and tweeting, has made a positive impact on my writing skills.

While blogging has motivated me to express complex feelings and ideas to my followers, tweeting has challenged me to clearly get an idea across in 130 characters or less.  Both have noticeably improved my diction.

Knowing who my audience is can definitely affect the style and tone of my writing.  I write to effect an intimate feeling of friendship and connection with my readers on my blog, while on Twitter, I invent ways to shoot out sarcastic, humorous, and relatable monologue condensed into one or two sentences.

If I did not have any social media, I would most likely only write for school assignments.  Because of this, I concur with Thompson’s claims that my time and involvement spent writing online have improved my writing ability.”

“I have not learned wisdom,
Nor have I the knowledge of the Holy One.

Who has ascended to heaven and come down?
Who has gathered the wind in his fists?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is his son’s name?
Surely you know!

Every word of God proves true;
He is a shield to those who take refuge in him.”

Proverbs 30:3-5

Ranging from wanting to dread my hair to wanting to dye it lavender,  I’ve been craving a change lately. My parents weren’t too keen on purple-tinted hair or dreadlocks, and while I completely agreed with their wise reasoning, I still wanted to do something different! I’ve been growing out my hair (it was styled in a bob!) for a few years now, and while I love my long hair, I have been rather ennui about it for the past few months.

I decided to give myself some blunt bangs! I was nervous to cut them myself, but with the bolstering encouragement from a friend, I did it. I rather like them!

I still think I want to get it shaped up/layered a bit, but I’m going to leave that to a proffesional. :D

What do you think? My hair wasn’t washed/styled in the bottom right pic… :P and for my wavy hair, that results in major frizz, haha! #ohwell

I’m pretty sure contentment is a virtue. So to that I say- I’m trying very hard to be content (And even joyful!) this winter. Still, it’s not wrong to reminisce over summer, right? ;)
