Sometimes I find it hard to update my Twitter using only 140 words. They want me to keep it simple, but my life is too complex for that, sometimes I have so much going on I don’t know how to put it into 140 words. I guess the 140 words is nice to keep the clutter out, to keep things simple, but sometimes I feel like it’s just not enough.

And sometimes I feel like there is a lot of clutter on social media sites too. I log onto Facebook and see ads that are of no interest to me, quizzes and games I could care less about, and a bunch of random things I don’t pay attention to. I sometimes wish Facebook could be a little simpler. It would be nice to just log on, see my friends updates and pictures, and not have to navigate around Farmville and MafiaWars.

Sometimes it’s too much and sometimes it’s not enough. How do we find a happy medium?

I’ve been staring at these scholarship forms for about two weeks trying to decide what to write about myself. The essays say “write about yourself, your career goals, how you stand out, blah blah blah.” How do I stand out? I have no idea. I feel just like any other college student. I go to class and work during the week. I hang out with friends and go to the bar or some parties on the weekend. I stay up late, procrastinate, and spend way too much on Facebook and Twitter. So how am I supposed to make this sound like I am a standout college student, when I feel just like an average, every day student. I guess it’s time to look into myself and try to see what makes me really stand out…
