I'm excited because I have a half-work day followed by a half-meeting day, then hopefully a date night with the hubby. Mind you, a half-meeting day for me entails meeting up with some awesome librarians, getting a break from the craziness at my school library, and learning something new. Never a bad thing.
And that date night? Hopefully taking place at a local food-serving joint to celebrate Food Revolution Day.
See? What's not to love about the day? (Don't answer that. I totally just jinxed myself and SOMETHING horrific will happen. #karma)
I thought I'd put my feelers out there and see how many of you use Instagram. Random, I know.
I'm a fan, although during the school year I seem to use it far less. I started a year ago (June 2nd, to be exact, with a picture of us meeting former NY governor Patterson) when I got my iPhone and have enjoyed grabbing candids and using funky filters along the way. Nope, I'm no purist.
And food. I'm totally a food-picture-taker, especially Hadley food.
The funny thing is, I've overheard the exasperated conversation of "Who needs Facebook AND Instagram AND Twitter??" Well, um, me.
See, I don't use Facebook religiously; we have a love/hate relationship, after all. When I do, I post a blog update (shout-out, FB checkers!) or see what's up with friends. Once in awhile, I'll re-post something...but it has to really hit me enough to do so. I'm not a huge fan.
So, when I feel like sharing a random thought or opinion or quote or something...I turn to Twitter. It feels like it's less likely to be criticized or misconstrued when it goes off into the Twittersphere. Plus, the best part of tweeting? You can follow celebs. And, of course, by celebs I mean @iammrvandy (Dick Van Dyke!), @jamieoliver, or @PBSKids (yes, that's one celebrity, in my book). There are a million more, but those are the ones that interest me. ;-)
And Instagram is my safe little photo stash. I only follow a minimum amount of people so it doesn't turn into an overwhelming Facebook-like crazy place, and I enjoy seeing what people come up with. Not to mention, my brother-in-law's images are INSANE. Just awesome.
So, how about the rest of y'all? Any Instagrammers in the bunch? Do you like to tweet? I'm still getting the hang of all of them (and I know I haven't discovered the full power of the hashtag), but I can see the value. I can, and it's pretty cool.
