On the way to the gym the other day, I saw a cardinal. Five seconds later I came across a doe standing in the road. I immediately started composing a tweet in my head. When I reached for my phone, I stopped myself. Why do I need to tweet about this? Would anyone really care about the woodland creatures I encounter in my life? I mean, yeah maybe if it’s a two headed deer or something…but people in this area see normal headed deer all the time. Big whoop.
The sad thing is, I do this all the time. I think in tweets and I see in instagrams. I don’t remember what it’s like to NOT automatically do that. I’m pretty good with my social media posts. I rarely post to facebook (remember the time I went 9 months without it?), and I tweet only when it’s really funny or entertaining. I’m not the worst social media offender, that’s for sure. But I need to stop thinking in tweet speak.
Am I the only person that does this? Make it stop!
