Revelations of the Twitter kind

Boy, it sure is great to finally have a public blog. I've wanted one for a while now. By the way, it's really hard to get used to typing "blog" instead of "vlog." Give me 21 days and I'll break the habit.

I stayed up entirely too late last night exploring the blogs of other YouTubers. The opportunity cost was my sleep, but this loss led to a miraculous revelation. I now officially understand the point of Twitter!

Allow me to elucidate. Blogs are generally meant to be somewhat lengthy. You can rant or vent or inform or go on and on about your day, typically in paragraph form. It's almost like an informal essay. In my old blogs, however, I would sometimes make a post that consisted of just one sentence, such as "OMG HP AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS COMES OUT IN TEN DAYS!!!!!" And that would be it. That, my friends, is what Twitter is for! It's one-line blogging that saves you from having to make a blog post of one sentence. Twitter and blogs serve two similar yet unique purposes, and I think that I now fully understand both of them.

Tonight we had Chi Omega senior ceremony. I didn't think I would get emotional, especially since I'm not even graduating, but Bekah (my Chi O little sis) really surprised me. Did you guys see my very first Embarrassing Relics video, the one where I read a love song I wrote to myself when I was a preteen? Bekah wrote down those lyrics and said them back to me during the ceremony, with a few of her own additions. It was so sweet and hilarious and slightly mortifying, but overall it was pretty amazing.

Tomorrow I have to do my conducting final during Camerata. I have to conduct and rehearse the choir on a piece for fifteen minutes. I really don't think it willl be too awful, but I'm dreading it right now. In fact, I most likely will dread it up to the very moment. Have I mentioned that I loathe conducting?

That's all for today. Until later, kids - life's what you make it, so let's make it rock.

P.S. It seems I've dropped below 1000 subscribers. How irksome.

  1. Congrats on figuring out twitter's purpose! I think I know someone that has yet to learn this.

    That song at the senior ceremony sounds both sweet and awkward, lol.
