Scary Google Search Results

This week in class we started a new book by Jason McDonald titled "Social Media Marketing Workbook: How to Use Social Media for Business." I'm already excited for this book because all within the first chapter the author talks about how social media is essentially like throwing a party, he displayed pictures of memes, and Richard Simmons' Facebook page.

In Chapter 1, Jason McDonald says if you know the question, you can Google the answer. I especially love this part because I adore Google. I use it for everything. It is probably unhealthy the amount of times I Google per day.

This got me thinking of a potentially good blog post when I tried looking up "what to do after you tie dye" and instead I got some interesting results. So today I'm going to be googling random questions and seeing what the most popular searches are!











Exhibit A: We have some genuine life concerns, and then something about Pokemon. Nothing too alarming yet so that's comforting.








Exhibit B: Netlfix, good. Drugs, bad. Netflix with friends, great.

















Exhibit C: If YOU'RE bored, perhaps you should try reading a grammar book and then you will know that it is Y-O-U-APOSTROPHE-R-E. Also, why is every search about Pokemon?











Exhibit D: More genuine life problems that need solved, more Pokemon concerns and one result that's only slightly concerning. To answer this though one must know if you are trying to get away with committing murder, or are you trying to run away with someone who is a murderer? Either is disturbing, and honestly, if you have to Google the answer, perhaps that's a good thing.







Today I learned the Google search bar can be a blessing or a really scary place you never want to go back to, and people really don't know how to play Pokemon Go. I hope this post made you laugh, it made me laugh! Thanks always for reading, show it some love and I truly, truly hope you find something to laugh about today!

  1. I don't know, Sierra... I think that Google "remembers" your previous searches. So, if you were using your own device, perhaps those Google guesses reveal more than you want known. And if you were using a school computer, for goodness sakes, don't marry the guy who was on just prior to you.
    But, seriously, I DID laugh, and I've asked Google questions, too, and am amazed with what some folks might find important or interesting. Keep blogging! ✍️️

5 Things

If you've never bought in to anything I've said on this platform, or any platform for that matter, please try and dissolve what I'm about to say.

I'm full of insecurities, always have been. My face is too round. My love handles poke out. Arms are so flabby I could probably fly away. Acne comes and goes and reminds me that I have pores, too. Sometimes my eyebrows look more like stepsisters than twins. Bigfoot and I could share shoes. The mole on my nose isn't always a welcome decoration. Scars from past accidents cover my legs and bring back the memories of learning how to ride a bike. Most days my curls resemble an unruly afro, not the cute kind of Shirley Temple curls I once had.

Lately, my insecurities have consumed me. Every time I looked in the mirror, a frown followed. I tugged and poked at my body for hours. But today, today I woke up and felt new. I was a different person. The person in the mirror was happy, glowing, beautiful. My hair twisted and turned jus…

Planning my Funeral

No, the title is not clickbait, and yes, it is true. Hear me out. I'm not suicidal. I'm not terminally ill, that I know of. But I do know that days are limited here on this precious planet we call home and I've become increasingly aware of that.

I got to thinking a few days ago about my own funeral. Funerals are typically sad situations, and for good reason, yes. But I don't want my funeral to be sad. I'm only nineteen and haven't written a will, and while I don't plan on it any time soon, this is my unofficial, official will. Although, a bit differently. You see, I don't want to tell you what I leave to everyone in my life, I want to tell you what I hope I've left behind. And I want to tell you how I want my celebration of life to be.

First of all, I hope my life had purpose. I don't care what, and not really how either, but I hope I left a legacy. I hope everyone who knew me knew that all I ever wanted was to make them laugh, or smile. I hope …

Rush Rho Gam

Two sorority posts back to back, who am I???

Last week on campus we finished up a week of formal recruitment. This year instead of being involved with normal recruitment, I served as a Rho Gamma for my chapter. Being a Rho Gamma means that you de-affiliate from your chapter. During this time I wasn't allowed to wear any letters, affiliated merchandise, or tell people who didn't already know, which chapter I was in. I couldn't also be seen in public with a lot of my friends who were affiliated members, which was the most difficult part.
As a Rho Gamma you get paired up with a floor in one of the residence halls, and help guide the girls on that floor through formal recruitment. I had the honor of having the floor I lived in my freshman year, which was extremely nostalgic and rewarding for me. Every week we would have meetings with these girls, and walk them to rounds on campus, gradually getting to know them and love them. This part of the experience was simultaneously easy…
