Twitter Marketing is Lit

This week in class we're talking Twitter. I think I have decided Twitter is my second favorite social media following Snapchat. The author of the "Social Media Marketing Workbook" tells us all how Twitter is the more casual, quicker form of communication and how it's less about marketing for companies. This got me thinking about a tweet I tweeted that got quite a few likes, probably because people thought I was trying to be funny but it was actually a genuine tweet.

The reason I tweeted this was not to be funny, but because it was a trend I had been noticing across my Twitter feed. I saw company Twitter pages using memes and words like "lit" and "fam", for what I can only assume is so teens feel they can relate to the company. 

As teenagers we're constantly trying to relate to people, to feel like our struggles are their struggles, our passions are their passions. I think companies have done an excellent job of realizing its target market and how exactly to cater to what young people want to see on their social media. I don't necessarily agree Twitter is a smaller marketing task for companies than any other social media, I just think it's a different type of marketing. So don't get annoyed when Chipotle tweets "If she can't splurge on chips and guac, she's too young for you bro," realize that they're just trying to relate to you. Also, I don't believe Chipotle has ever tweeted that but if they wanted to steal it and credit me I wouldn't be upset.  

This was just a little take on Twitter marketing, I hope it was something interesting and enjoyable for you. I'm on fall break with my family right now absolutely loving life and laughing a bunch, I hope you are loving life wherever you are in the world right now, too!

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…
