ture is dark - is the meat (the truth)
3. My eyesight is going too - is the bottom slice (the bailout)
Here's my cushion. I think Julia looks good in this picture
in spite of the fact that the quality isn't the best.…
ch was affecting my eyesight.
Last week, she called me an idiot.
This girl is really merciless. So, let me know, what do you think about the picture. And, be honest. Julia is one of Recruitingblog's tough mamas and has no time for people who mince their words.
PS: In my humble opinion, the picture is also ridiculously small. If you are going to post a picture of yourself in a one inch square, you might as well make it a close up.

chuckwestbrook: Not too dark. Poorly lit and too small. And not close enough.
ejobfairs: to dark!…
l at the same time. And that's just with 50 people lucky enough to have me follow them - what would you do if you followed 100's, as many "twits" are doing these days? How are you meant to keep up with everyone you are following - and do you really care what they are all saying?
It's hard enough trying to follow a big discussion on here sometimes - but imagine if you had 50 people on this discussion all talking about different things... it would drive you nuts wouldn't it?! Or if you had 50 people all talking at you in a room... again, it would drive you mad wouldn't it?!
And then there's facebook - the place where you get to have 100's of friends who you don't really know, and don't really care about - unless you run a business however, and want them to buy something from you; and then of course you care about them a lot!
My point is this - if you wouldn't do it in real life, why do it online? A form of escapism it may be - but is life that dull that we all need to hide away on our computers all day long? I personally hate being stuck at my desk on this damn thing - put me in a room full of interesting people whom I'd love to find out more about - and that's my idea of being "social".
Our children could end up facing new issues when they grow up -
Poor eyesight caused by screen glare,
A lack of any real social skills due to having too many "virtual" relationships instead of good old personal ones,
Increased obesity due to spending more time sat at home on their computers (not to mention all the back problems that come from sitting down for too long),
And to add to that, a rise in Repetitive Strain Injuries - particularly in the thumbs from all the texting and mobile internet use!
Hmmm... Social Media could be giving rise to an evolution alright- A new race of arthritic, short sighted, verbally challenged, over weight, hunchbacked human beings!
And before you shoot me down for sounding like I'm against Social Media... I certainly am not that way inclined... I just believe that it is starting to take over the lives of the younger generation in a very unhealthy way. It's great in small doses - but many of us are spending too much time at the computer as it is... and it's all becoming far too hectic. With soooo many different social media platforms to use, I can see people calling for their brains to be hooked up to their computers in the future, as their fingers will become nothing more than short little stumps from all that endless typing! Either that, or they simply become to lazy to even be bothered to type - kids want everything on a plate these days, it all has to be faster and simpler. Writing a letter and putting it in the post would seem like living in the stone age to them - and you can forget taking a trip across town to go and visit friends or family - they've got skype now, and it's even on mobiles - no need to travel anywhere!
Give it a break people - get out in the fresh air (well, depending on where you live) - and meet each other in person. Laugh, have fun, feel alive - and you can even tease each other in real life rather than hiding behind rude comments on your computer screen... you may get a punch in the face, but at least that will teach you not to be such an idiot sometimes!
I know what I'd prefer anyway.
Keep it real people.
