Smart Is the New Pretty: Socially Acceptable

social media rubiks cubeIt’s funny, one of the first things I do in the morning (other than open my eyes) is look at my phone.  I mean, I need to see what I missed during those seven to eight hours of sleep.  Is the internet still there?  Are you still out there, world??

Smart is the New Pretty: Picture That
Written by: WhyDid | Smart Is the New Pretty

I know you guys love my writing (yammering), but it seems we are a generation that is totally enraptured with photos.  And well, like they say, pictures are worth a thousand words.  So, it’s no wonder that we spend a lot of time on our phones and computers uploading and “liking” photos.

Picture that.

Smart is the New Pretty: Snooze or News

Being bombarded with news about celebrities breaking up and being rushed to rehab on a daily basis, it’s time we looked for some news that might make us smile rather than snooze.  It’s a rough world out there… for a celebrity.

  • Welp, seems I’m not alone in my love of all things neon. [Nylon]
  • You could probably sport something bright to stand out at the newly re-opened 40/40 Club.  Oh wait… [Huffington Post]
  • Hmph… well, there’s always that documentary about cassettes.  That’d be fun. [TechCrunch]
  • BeachMint (mother company of JewelMint, StyleMint, ShoeMint, and BeautyMint) just keeps on growing with more “Mints” to come! [TechCrunch]
  • Not a Mint fan?  ShopSavvy is a pretty amazing new way to comparison shop while on the go by scanning barcodes. [TechCrunch]
  • Pretty soon your car may be very sensitive.  So sensitive it will respond to your very touch.  [Business Insider]
  • Speaking of touching, Victoria’s Secret’s new “Designer Collection” is sure to make your Valentine squeal with delight. [Fashionista]
  • Did you ever think you’d squeal with delight over an aardvark?  Today’s the day. [Huffington Post]
  • No, no.  Aardvarks aren’t endangered species, but these guys are. [Huffington Post]
  • Know who else isn’t endangered?  These six new breeds introduced into the Westminster Kennel Club [Huffington Post]
  • Hell, might as well throw in a cat video while I’m at it. [Gawker]

How did we get here?

Smart is the New Pretty: Connection Failed

We are so attached to our computers and smart phones, it seems nearly impossible to even get through a dinner without someone (or everyone) picking up his or her phone to text, Tweet, check-in, or share a photo.  It begs me to ask the question- have we become TOO social?  And have we forgotten what the word “social” really means?

Perhaps it’s time to put down our gadgets and make real life connections– with the people who are right in front of our faces.  Sure we are all “connected” but are we really “connecting” at all anymore?

Smart is the New Pretty: When I Grow Up…

Oh the million dollar question… What do you want to be when you grow up?  Now, I know, many of us are already college graduates with several years of job experience under our belts, but that doesn’t mean we are living out our greatest career fantasies.  So, really, what do you want to be when you grow up?

Hey, these bills aren’t gonna pay themselves.
