Feeling Inspired

8 Jul

Tonight, I feel inspired. 

It’s late, and while I should probably go to bed, I know that if I don’t write this now, it’s unlikely I will tomorrow.

So. I feel inspired. In an I’m so small compared to the universe and all it houses kind of way. If that makes any sense at all.

I sat with some friends tonight and had wonderful conversations with all of them, but I feel like I need more. In the days to come, I’ll share some of these conversations with you. Unfortunately, only one of these friends actually reads my content, but I’ll take it. I’m sure what I write about isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

The conversations were good, but I need more.

I’m so small, and my inspiration so big that I want to share it with someone equally as small. Just the two of us, in this vast universe we find ourselves in. Deep conversation while admiring the night sky and talking about where we’ve been and where we are and where we’ll go. A quiet night with only our voices letting the other know that we do exist. 

I’m inspired to feel timeless. To connect. To wonder. To dream. To think. 

What are some ways you like to express yourself when you feel inspired?

Texting Etiquette

18 Jul

 

Everyone has a different style when it comes to texting. There is the serial texter, who texts and has conversations multiple people all simultaneously. Then you have the neglexter, who neglects conversation and forgets to text you back. Some (and by “some” I mean men) are one-worders, who you can find responding to your texts with things such as “lol”, “k”, “maybe”, and the classic “sure”. Sometimes you will even get a slow-poke thrown into the bunch. I’m what I’d like to call the faithful texter. I always have my cell with me, and if you text me there is a 99% chance that I will text you back within 5 minutes (the caveat being situations like work, or if I don’t feel/hear my phone…but we will put those in that 1%).

All of this leads me to believe there should be standard texting etiquette that everyone should follow.

1. Carry your cell phone with you. Get a house phone if you don’t want the burden of keeping your cell with you.
2. Respond in a timely manner. No one wants to sit around waiting 30 minutes to see if you want to go to dinner only to ultimately go alone.
3. Be clear. This goes for in-person conversations as well.
4. Be as involved in a conversation as you would be in person. You wouldn’t forget to respond to a friend if they are right in front of you, so do your best to text me back. If you are busy, just tell me.

I know there are times when you just can’t be a faithful texter, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying. Bad texting should not become a habit.

What is your texting style? What general rules of etiquette should people follow? What is your texting pet peeve?
