Facebook- Logging off

I have decided to log off my Facebook account. I feel that I need to take a break from it and just move away from Facebook for a while. I haven’t been feeling like myself lately and I just need to an escape away from it all. Earlier this year I did a Facebook Detox for Lent and honestly, after that experience, I felt so carefree and relieved that I’m not bombarded with articles and adverts I didn’t give a damn about or things which were making me just feel sad when it shouldn’t be. Facebook has given me a platform to express myself and share my life but right now I feel like I need to step away and have some self-reflection. I shared so many good memories on there as well as several bad ones but as years went by it has all become mediocre and I just feel negative towards it now. Signing out from Facebook, FB Messenger and deleting all the apps from my devices will hopefully help me find more time to have a long think and just give me some space.

Right now, I won’t be deactivating it or deleting it yet, just gonna log it off. I think this decision is the best for me and even if I am not on Facebook, I will still have Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram. So if you want to chat, call me up or some news appeared on Facebook that you think I need to know, I will still be on the other social media networks, just not Facebook. A part of me will miss Facebook but the majority of me will soon forget about it. This is a goodbye to Facebook for now and you never know I might decide to log back on just to see how everyone is doing or maybe even start a new account. Also,  if you end up reading this, please know that it is not directed at anyone or was due to anything major happening because there is not anything that has happened or anyone that has forced me to do this. This is all my personal decision and something I have been meaning to do for ages. 

I want to thank everyone for making the Facebook experience memorable and just being part of many of my memories so far. See you around everyone!

If you do want to contact me, here are all my other social media details:

Now its… Bye Facebook Bye!

Online Representation

Hey online world this is me.
Who I am do you really have to you see?
I would stare down this lens and just talk
Well why don’t we go for a imaginary walk?
The place that the camera will never see
A place known as my investigation territory
You want to know what goes
You see people can put on a front and play a role
I do it all the sometimes to gain control *
I can be that girl who smiles at the camera and acts all happy
Laugh and smile even through I’m grumpy
Even though I’m sad I just shrug and say ok
So they’d think I’m totes fine and they will just go away!
I’d shut the world out and go to the person I wanna be

That girl who is almost perfection, crafted to the tee
She’d have a stunning and made up face
Looking beautiful and elegant, full of grace
I would be a star in the worlds eyes
A boys dream girl, the winning prize

Or that smart girl who knows every answer
She can balance her studies and being a hard worker
She is always on top, she gets the first place trophy
She’s also an animal lover, charity volunteer and very holy

Or I could be the Harry Potter fanatic, a total obsession
Every Harry Potter merchandise in my possession
I’d end up married to Rupert Grint and have a cat called Otter
Maybe I’ll even get a tattoo on my back of Harry Potter

Or I could be that mean girl, scrolling and judging
You want me gone well darling I’m not budging.
Let me tell you what is wrong with you and your face
You are so ugly, you’re mother thinks you’re a disgrace
Girl no one likes you, haven’t you noticed everyone tweeting
Btw just to let you know that your so called bf is cheating

So you see I can be anyone. I wanna be behind the screen
Flicking through, deleting and editing footage that will never be seen
Backstage I rule the world cause no will know it’s me
Secrets, fears, emotion are locked with a key
But if you really want to know about the girl on the other side
She’s ready to show people who she is…. Nowhere else to hide

She’s the girl who smiles and laughs for no apart reason
She looks exactly the same every single day of every season
She should really focus on her education and getting a job
But she can’t find the time right now and sometimes a lazy flop
She’s never said a mean thing about anyone, online or for real
Well apart from time to time when she wants to express how she feels
So there you go, comment, subscribe and check out the description
Im going to sleep now, that was my online self representation

There are a lot of things you’d know from a person if you give them a chance
You don’t have to tell them to go edit them selves and turn up the ‘enhance’
Maybe if we stopped investigating a person from what we see in the screen
Anyway who would listen to a girl who looks at a twisted reflection?
People are so bended these days do they know their self representation?

Teachings from my Facebook Detox

Today marks the end of Lent and I will be going back on Facebook again. On March 05, I wrote a post about giving up Facebook for Lent 2017 (Facebook Detox) and now the 40 days are over. I am going to be honest, I have never given anything up for Lent before but I wanted to give up something that I knew would take a lot to give up. I know some people are always giving up social media for Lent but personally giving up Facebook for me meant giving up being tempted surrounding myself with other people’s lives and forgetting to go live my own. I am constantly clicking on Facebook every morning and every night and checking constantly to get updates on other people, so giving it up was gonna be difficult. Spending 40 days without Facebook has taught me so many things.

I realized I didn’t need it as much as I thought at first. The act of not clicking on it and checking it, allowed me to see how great life is clicking on other things. I managed to spend time clicking on my emails and writing my essays plus I was able to help my little sister learn some educational apps on the tablet ready for her school in the Fall. I also spent more time sharing my poems and my thoughts on here with all you lovely people. 

I also found that Facebook was always a distraction even when I wasn’t posting on it because I would spend hours scrolling through and getting involved in some people’s lives and problems because I will forever be worrying about it or thinking about it all the time instead of thinking about my problems. But having Facebook at the back of my devices and having the inability to worry and focus on people’s lives really made a difference to how I looked at my life.  I was able to think more about who I am and share aspects of my life that matters to me without having to consider if other people judged me or not. 

Facebook was often the app I turned to because I can see gossip and arguments on there which I found interesting or articles that applied to me the most but at the same time I often found myself on there because I’m just bored. So, without Facebook, I saw the world from my point of view because I was not looking at other people’s lives as a past time and that way I wasn’t affected by anything related to others. Also, I found that I don’t need to look at Facebook everyday, so its okay to sign off and leave it alone once in a while. I mean, it did not make a difference to my life whatsoever and in fact I think it made my life better and brighter because I was so focused on myself that I didn’t have time or the care to look at what other people have or what others think of me. 

Giving up Facebook made me think about what I want in my life and made me realize how important the sacrifice that Jesus gave. Now, I am not going to claim that I have been reformed in some way or that this has made me a better Christian than I was before because I don’t think that would be true because I know that giving up Facebook for Lent is nothing compared to what Jesus had to do in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights. But I just wanted to share what this experience has taught me because I want to bring some positive outlook on life and how we don’t need social media every single day and we do not need to be surrounded by other people’s lives because the only life worth living is our own. 

Have A Great Day Everyone!

Real Trisha
You see you may judge and take a stand
But your thoughts don’t even reach my hand
Your mood is stored behind a filter
Huh? Hun, why do you look so bitter?
Your style and looks really highlights your physique
To bad it’s been done, turns out your not unique
Your insults are barely noticed, plus they are pretty old
Your opinions aren’t valid, dearie you’ve been told
From now on just stay in my head but stay cute
Keep babbling and mumbling, it’s okay you’re on mute
You think you’ve won well go look at you’r reflection
I hope you’re okay with this extra large rejection
Cause you’re behind a screen, just another online version
You’ve got to remember I’m the real person
Awwwwwww sorry… Gotta go… Please don’t shout
Not does it matter, see you soon, I’m….signing out!


This poem was inspired by a project I did for my first year at Uni where we had to create a form of self representation and I chose to create one for an online representation of the conflict decision to which side of you, you would like to portray to the online world. This was an early idea i had and it didn’t quite work out in the end but since I wrote the poem already I thought I might as well share it on here.

Second Chances- OutlawQueen

As a fan of OutlawQueen, I really wanted them to get together and have a happy ending that I and other OutlawQueen fans deserves. But I know that this is only an empty wish at the end of the day and will never happen within the show and its all to do with the premise of the show: No one is suppose to get a happy ending (yes even CaptainSwan)

This ship pairing was born in Season 3 and when the dislike between Regina and Robin was so obvious, I knew they are so meant to be. When I watched them, it was like I was falling in love over and over again. The Evil Queen has always been portrayed as the villain but something about her even at the very start intrigued me and after watching her story unfold, I grew to love her even more. The Evil Queen/Regina was misunderstood and so unwilling to accept to be loved that she was prepared to bury your heart (literally). But then along came Robin Hood. Oh Robin, where have you been? As soon as those two characters met, I knew that something will happen between them and boy a lot did.

After having a mini journey and quest in the Enchanted Forest to try and retrieve Regina’s castle and stopping her from sleeping for eternity, they were teleported back to Storybrooke with no memories that they even had developed a liking for each other. While in Storybrooke, they are back to square one and develop feeling for each other yet again leading them to finding out that they are soulmates. They were so in love. I wished I paused it right there and never moved. But as a fan, I was curious. Oh show me how they get married and live in Regina’s mansion and take Roland for ice cream and teach Henry how to use a bow and arrow and at night h0w they make love in the Vault or the forest before they have to start the day again. But nope…None of these happened and it was issues after issues.

Regina and Robin were so happy as soulmates but wait. Marian (Robin’s wife) arrived and Robin was conflicted and Regina was sad. Robin wanted to do the right thing and be with his wife and Roland but he loved Regina at the same time. They were so in love yet they chose to do the right thing  and she helped his family leave Storybrooke, only to find out that Marian is actually Zelena, her sister. When she  found Robin in New York,  she thought everything is gonna be back to normal and she wanted to carry on where they left of but Robin got Marian   Zelena pregnant. Now there is a baby in the way but they will make it work somehow. It became complicated.

And then the final frontier came, in Season 5, Robin was obliterated and  OutlawQueen was no more.  I cried so much. I cried for Robin. I cried for Regina. I cried for OutlawQueen. It was tough and many people wanted to bring Robin back to life. The producers said NO.  Well that was until the second half of Season 6, Robin was back. But it was a different Robin from the man Regina fell in love with and everyone knew it and after watching Regina admit it to herself, I also accepted it.

As a fan, I often try to find a glimmer of hope but I know at the end of the day, the show will never play out to how I see it on my head because it will always be up to the producers of the show on how it happens. I just wish that this Robin and Regina story will end how it was meant to be, with a bit of closure (or at least him and the Evil Queen having sex- DarkOutlawQueen is still Outlawqueen)

P.S at least there is still fanfiction lol.

Found My Old Uni Blog

I just found my old university blog I did for one of my modules, which is probably where the inspiration to create a blog started. I just found it so weird to be reading something a first year university student created. The whole blog was for a module called ‘Networked Image’ where we explored various things related to blogs and activities we can do online.

Go check out Networked World (<—click the link) and find out about the module and what we did within that module as well as getting an insight on the first ever blog I created.
