Have you ever felt your phone buzzing in our pocket and said to yourself "ahh I'll leave it" , have you ever missed a special moment because u are too busy waiting on a little thumbs up to appear on your screen instead of enjoying your families company? You may have even had a whole text message conversation with the person who is sitting on the other side of the room. Admit it your phone is literally the most important thing in your life and you would die without it! It has been studied that the average person spends 3.6 hours on their phone per day. This is crazy!!! Why are phones so addictive?? They are ruining so many relationships. If you were to think about it , if everyone's phones were taken off of them in the morning nobody would care but it is the thought of missing out on things that people fear. It is a huge problem! Basically phones are given to people to make them happy. Who even needs a real relationship when you have your phone to keep you warm at night! Just put your phone away for god sake and realise that your phone can be replaced and the pictures can be saved but the memories and moments you have missed can never be won back.
Why is it such a demand for my room to be clean?
Weekly I get comments like 'put out your dirty clothes', 'did you put away your clothes?', 'I can't see the floor of your room' and it gets annoying. One would say that a dirty room is disgusting and I agree in soon aspects, like the dirty clothes, but I can't help it that I'm too lazy to put away clothes or put them out and all I do is lie in bed and eat which leads to the build up of rubbish. I do clean my it like twice a month but I gets messy again as fast as it got cleaned.
Last week I cleaned out my whole room and I finally understood why my mother bothers me so much about it, being able to walk from my bed to the door without standing on a plug or slipping on some sort of clothes is just so satisfying for me.
Lesson is to keep your room clean you'll be happier.
Blogging can be good but it can also be a pain. It's all fun and games sitting back listening to what people have to say until you get 'randomly selected' to write next weeks blog. It probably wouldn't be be so bad if I actually had an imagination and it didn't take me the whole week to think of something in the slightest bit interesting to write about, leaving me no time to actually write it. (This is why I'm blogging about blogging). Since the start of the year we've had quiet the selection of topics written about. We've heard opinions on a some serious topics like how people treat animals, we learned that Annie is one of very few that's actually studies in our year and most importantly we all now know how to take the perfect bath.
Even though blogging is so annoying and I'd much rather be doing something more enjoyable like eating, it can sometimes be a good thing. When writing a blog you can literally take it anywhere you like. It can be made super personal to the writer or it doesn't have to be in the slightest bit serious. If you feel strongly about something it's a great way to get your point across, people may dissagree but it really doesn't be matter because it's only your opinion.
These days people's priorities don't seem to be in the right place. For example, the upcoming All-Ireland club finals are only two weeks away and plenty of the supporters seem to more worried about the afters rather than what should be the priority, the actual match. The majority of conversations about the day out will without fail end up leading back to one thing. Where's the team going after? It seems like that's more important than the winning of the match to a good amount of people, which obviously isn't the case for a majority of actual supporters. Most of the members are by no means forgetting how significant an all-Ireland is for the club but it seems that for a minority of people they are just going for the celebration and social aspect of the whole thing. Win or lose it wont have an impacting effect on them. I'm not saying that the committed supporters aren't looking forward to celebrating the hopeful victory as much as anyone else but their priorities are lying in the right place and the with win will come a sense of pride and sheer happiness.
People priorities aren't just a bit off when it comes to sport but also amongst so many young people these days. They find it difficult to differentiate between their needs and wants. Having the newest phones, best makeup, new clothes and going out the whole time tend to be prioritised ahead of school work, family and sports. They prioritise putting out an image of themselves to the public. Technology seems to have taken over and young people tend to lose sight of what their priorities should be. Scarily more and more young girls are giving up the sports they once loved , not only because their priorities have changed but because of the priorities in the world of sports. I know for everyone sport might not be a priority for them but it does have an important part to play in a lot of lives. It's said that the inequality is starting to improve but women tend to still be forgotten about when it comes to the big days out and the priorities of big sporting boards such as the GAA are still solely on the men.
To sum this all up in my opinion people these days have their priorities on all the wrong things. This is to no fault of their own but the fault of the modern world and the priorities of others around them.
