As I checked my 2014 iPhone photos, I noticed I took mostly photos of my sleeping dog. I "styled" and posted so many stylized tablescapes for work that I think I developed an aversion for too stylized photos already: both looking and taking them. I missed taking snapshots of people I love, getting that high when you capture that perfect moment when they smile. So this year, I think I'm taking a break from attempting to style my own shots and picking up a camera (now that the person-to-camera ratio at home has increased to 1:2). Oh, and teach my niece how to smile.
When the year started, I made a resolution to stop taking too stylized photos of my life. Again, styled photos are not reflective of me or my life. My work station is a mess and not everything arranges themselves beautifully and Pinterest worthily. It may be what others want, but as Amy Poehler said: "Good for you, but not for me."
Is Twitter still relevant?— Mara Ruiz (@maraisms) May 23, 2015
To be quite honest, I don't know what to do with Twitter. I mainly use it to get my breaking news and local gossip. But I want to make it relevant by making more connections online. So for Twitter, I resolve to stop subtweeting and I'll try to reply to people's tweets. It takes courage to actualize your thoughts into 140 characters and the least I can do is assure that person she's not tweeting to the abyss.
So there goes my social media self-imposed rules and resolutions. Got any?
