My Facebook Film.

As I was going through my twitter stream, I came across a question from Hootsuite asking whether we’d shared our Facebook films and NO instantly popped into my head. Most of you know Facebook turned 10 last week and as a way of celebrating that milestone; users got to make their Facebook films and share with friends.
Making this film brought back so many nostalgic memories and moments. I joined in 2007 and back then it was a little restricted unlike nowadays. It has gone through a lot of changes which I think are for the better. I know I bellyache and contemplate leaving sometimes but I am still in love with it. It is the only place so far where you can share a multitude of pictures and have interesting conversations with people you’ve never met yet feel like old friends you’ve known for years. I find it a lot more friendly than twitter which is cold in my opinion.
There was a time when Facebook was all about babies! Every picture you came across was of a child or one of your friends holding their baby bump. That period made me promise not to get off Facebook until I posted a picture of little Shanah. LOL. I hope it remains until then because little Shanah is yet to find a daddy to help with the process of her coming into the world.
I unfriended a lot of people too in these 7 years. I used to unfriend people who talked smack about people I liked in 5/10 posts, those who wrote like they have never been to school i.e yhue, xul…Really? And the ones who enjoyed the poking button far too much than they should have at my expense. Now, I don’t have to do all that. No. All I do is uncheck the ‘show in news feed’ tab and voila…no posts from culprits who fall in those categories popping up in my feed.
Much as I am less of an addict these days; Facebook still has me wholeheartedly. I still love it and until little Shanah comes into the world, I shall continue to be a user. So, in the spirit of its celebration, I am sharing my Facebook Film with y'all. I don't know what formula Mark and his team used but I believe most of my good moments are missing.

The Power Of Association

One of my best friends sent me this quote and as I went through it; I reflected on the people I surround myself with both family and friends. There are friendships that I let go of during the course of the year and as I did that: I realized that the fewer friends you have, the better. It is said that,”The friends we keep define who we are as a person”…well, I didn’t want to be defined by such people because who they are is not the person that I am.
I am proud of the set of friends that I keep and maintain now because they are good people. They have been there for me in more ways than they could ever know. It is partly due to them I am who I am at the moment and I am happy about it and I appreciate them more. Here goes the quote….
"The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting…

I Love Technology.

I am a lover of technology despite the fact that it changes all the time. It is one thing that will never remain constant... Maybe that is why I love it? All the application, software creators put out something new, a few tweaks to their applications and software which is a good thing due to the multitude of competition out there. I always marvel at what comes out to help the user when it comes to software, applications and programs.Recently, I was reading a book using Adobe Reader. Whenever I would start the program to continue with the book, it would bring up a notification for an upgrade to Adobe Reader X which I would unfortunately ignore because; I tend to read when I don't have an internet connection.I decided to bookmark the link so as not to forget about the upgrade. I usually bookmark websites that I visit time to time and find interesting, links I need to check out for software upgrades and installations.After getting an internet subscription, downloading Adobe Reader X …

Obsession: The Fat Doctor.

Most of you know I am a certified TV addict who watches anything and everything.
Currently, I am obsessed with the TV show The Fat Doctor. It is about a certain Doctor at a hospital who gives hope and gastric bypass surgery (cut their stomach to the size of an egg) to the morbidly obese. I found out that now Britain has the largest number of morbidly obese patients and that the number of people who have had this surgery done rose from 600 a year to 100,000. Last time I knew, America had the largest number of morbidly obese citizens with Alabama being the fattest state in America.
It is typically not something I would watch but the stories told by the patients, the state of their health and appearance as they go about their day to day lives is touching. The surprising bit about the show are the different reasons as to why the patients are morbidly obese with each episode – Early puberty, loss, divorce, genetics, environment, depression etc. I find them all valid and beyond questionab…
