Instagram Is Annoying

Instagram

I currently have three Instagram accounts. Anyone that has a business or blog will be able to relate to this post. I am going to rant about Instagram’s lack of a certain option. It does not allow a user to have more than one account singed in at once. For example, Twitter can have many accounts logged in at the same time and you can navigate between them. Thus, you don’t have to keep logging in and out. It also only sends notifications from the last account that you used. With Instagram, I keep on getting notifications from the different accounts, so it really gets confusing. Also, I have to LOG IN and OUT several times a day. It’s so annoying. What usually ends up happening is that one or two of the accounts are neglected for a few days until I realize I should check them. The accounts by the way include my personal one, the blog one and the Nira Concept one. I sort of have to have all three, unless Instagram soon stops being the “it” program (ie, what’s currently happening to Twitter).

Distracted

I can’t believe it has been so long since my last post. The funny thing is I always update the blog’s Twitter, Instagram and even reply to comments on posts, but I forget to actually post. It’s just that I have been distracted lately and blogging isn’t the top of my list. This time I have no excuse. This has happened to me in the past, but I had the will to start fresh again. I will not be making promises anytime soon because I honestly don’t want to be upsetting anyone.

When I first started reading blogs, I used to be so annoyed when bloggers stopped posting for some personal reason. Now, I truly understand how those bloggers feel. However, I forgot, as a reader, how it feels to not be able to read something you became a fan of. It’s because I stopped reading blogs. All the news that I would read on a blog can now be found on the blogs Instagram account, so why go to the actual website?

Most of my inspiration for my posts came from reading blogs. If the reading part is missing from this equation, then where will my inspiration come from. I don’t want to blame this on Instagram, but on me for being so lazy. I used to spend at least an hour a day catching up with news from different blogs. Maybe, I lost interest on the blogs I read and need new ones to boost my energy.

Any new blogs out there worth reading?

I Got Skills

If you could choose to be a master/mistress of any skill, which would you pick?

There are many skills that I would love to learn. Most of them are physical. I would love to learn how to paint or swim proffessionally, but the skill I want to master in does not require physical activity. Well, not exactly. What I’m talking about is social skills. I know them, except I don’t practice them. The problem is, I’m rarely in the mood to socialize, but whenever I do, I do great. I become spontaneous and I would have great presence, but that only happens when I want to. Some people are always like that without even thinking about it. Another problem is that being social requires being up to date with everything, so that it is easy to communicate with anyone. It’s weird to think that as a blogger, I should be updated with all the latest news, and I am, but I forget things easily. I only remember the information that matters to me. Maybe someday I will become the Mistress of Socializing.

Latest Music

I really need to update my songs! I love both Arabic and English songs. I don’t really listen to a specific genre. Okay, for Arabic songs I hate the old classics like Fayrooz, Um Kalthoom and Abdulhaleem. I admire their voices, but they’re not my type. I also don’t like Abdo’s songs, too long and boring. I love Rwaished, Majeed, Al Jassimi and Nabeel Shael. The new Arab singers are good, and some of their songs are amazing. English songs… I hate classics, heavy metal, and rock. I love mostly country, R&B and techno. I love Beyonce!!

ANY SUGGESTIONS?

New Beginning

This is the longest I’ve gone this year without posting on my blog. I’m really disappointed that I couldn’t make time to post. It’s been very busy and all my best friends birthdays are in the end of May, so I’m not home most of the time. The problem is, every time I turn on my laptop to post, I realize I’m too tired to even think. I hate posting from my phone, so I didn’t really have a choice. I miss using my laptop and checking out other blogs and watching episodes. I really hope this doesn’t happen again and I’m going to be back on track starting from tomorrow.

Learn a New Language

Why is it that in everyone’s wish list there’s a need to learn a new language? Rarely do people cross it off that list. Why is it even there? Maybe you’ll find out that you don’t even enjoy learning a new language. If you really want to do it, delaying it is not the answer. That is because the younger you are, the more your brain would absorb the words and understand them better. It maybe hard at first, but with practice you will get the hang of it. The easiest way to learn is to join a center where the language is taught, preferably with a friend. That way you can practice it together. Then one day you will be able to cross off your list. I personally know how to speak Arabic, English and French. My French, though, is a bit rough because I haven’t been practicing.
What’s one language that you have always wanted to learn?

Why are People Illogical?

20110626-023348.jpg

People think they can have whatever they want. Be who ever they want to be. But life isn’t like that. It’s better to work with what you have. Be yourself. Survive. Don’t have dreams that are not yours to reach. You need to find your own needs. Life is all about finding yourself, and when you do you don’t want to be disappointed with what you see.
