 Sparks A Piece Of History

I’m always making notes. Ever since I was able to hold a pen, I’ve been making notes, songs, writing down ideas. 
I can’t tell you how much data I’ve used up by writing notes on my phone ( and two others from before) along with my iPad (rip) and computer.
I wish there was a way for me to find all of them. Although there isn’t, there’s at least my old e-mail which hold quite a few. 
One day I’ll go through them, maybe share a few… but for now I just want to talk about how much I love writing. 
Not only do I focus better, remember tasks I’d otherwise forget, and come up with creative ideas that I put few to use, but it helps me feel like I’ve accomplished something. 
I started out with a pen and paper, even now I do still prefer a pen and paper… but, those ideas that come on around 2 am or so (the most creative I think), or the ideas that come to thought in a dream, are written in my phone. 
No matter how you look at it, you’ll see I always write and I most likely date the paper too. 
There’s something I find really cool about going to back to things I wrote or drew back in 2013, for instance, because it sparks memory and it sparks a piece of history from my life. 
It does for everyone when they discover something they thought they lost. 
The way we write tells a story too; why do we curve the g’s and y’s? 
Why do we write in cursive or print?
Why do we have sloppy handwriting sometimes and clean as pledge the next? 
There are more unique things about ourselves than what we thought…
Even when it comes to something as “simple” as writing. 
Thanks for reading. 🔥
Love,

Don’t Be So Quick to Judge

I don’t believe all company’s use certain social issues and ideas to make a profit. There are some corporations that do, but in regards to the Budweiser commercial during the Super Bowl– I would not fit them in the category of money-grubbing.

If you have not seen the commercial that aired during the 2017 Super Bowl, it is the back story of the company’s start– specifically how Adolphus Busch (the founder of the beer) came to the U.S., with specific references to his journey.

Which was not an easy one.

In the end Busch met Eberhard Anheuser (who soon after became father-in-law due to his daughter Elizabeth Lilly marrying Busch), thus creating Budweiser.

He had a dream, and came to the U.S. (which is based on immigrants and every person coming together to create what would then be called a melting pot) to pursue it.

To claim the company, who released the commercial (due to certain concerns and tension involving the U.S. and other neighboring / not so close areas) as one who only looked to put out such a commercial due to making a profit is entirely demeaning to the actual man who this commercial is surrounding.

It truly bothers me when people say some corporations only promote things such as equality or hopefully bettering a situation ONLY to make a profit.

Not all companies are money-grubbing manipulations.

 

Instagram

“The people who have hundreds of photos on Instagram are narcissists”– I was scrolling through social media and I heard someone say this. I don’t agree…

I used to question why people had 500 or so photos myself, but now I understand that it’s in a way a photo book. 

Sure, some are filtered and there is now the Instagram story… but you know, it’s cool to think that 40 or so years from now we can look back and look at every moment that ever made us think “hey let me pull out my phone, take a picture, or vlog (recording video of a day) because I want to remember this.”

Not only that, but we won’t have the questions from others of “what did you look like when you were younger?” And the thoughts of “wow I wish I could remember that day” because even if we forget about a social media account, it will always be there as long as we remember it at some point. 

Hear me out, I love physical copies of photos– but it’s nice to have a backup. It’s nice to pull out a phone at the drop of a hat and take a photo or video of family, an event, some random moment that made you laugh, or a city/ place you’ll never see again. 

Of course, there’s always a way back, but never a way back to that specific moment. The invention of film and photography has brought the privilege of being able to reel that picture back to us. 

Not just from parents perspectives, but children’s perspectives too. It’s bittersweet. 

More sweet than anything– I don’t know anyone that hasn’t had the thought “wow I wish I could relive that moment for a second,” young, or old. 

I for one love social media such as Instagram for this, because it truly is a giant photo book that shows a million different perspectives. 

But, physical copies of photos, books, cd’s, are something that I hope never go out of style because that’s what gave social media sites their start– and we can’t forget the moments or people that gave us our start. 

Love,
