Social Animals Movie Review!

Published April 15, 2019 by Shay Taree

So this past week I watched a movie on Netflix called Social Animals. This movie was actually about 3 teenagers and their different experience when it came to social media. One kid uses his Instagram for photography and actually got pretty famous for it, another girl is trying to be an aspiring model, and the last girl it seems it just trying to survive in this world with social media.

It was honestly a very interesting movie to watch and actually seemed to be one of the realer documentaries that I’ve watched about social media. This is because it also showed the downsides to social media such as the bullying, people asking for nudes, also the issues with FOMO, and “social media rules”.

It made me think about how I use social media in my everyday life and what I should do differently. I definitely recommend checking out this movie since it was pretty interesting. If you are interested in watching it then it is available on Netflix and is about a little over an hour long.

So if you decided to watch it comment down below on your thoughts and also do so if you’ve already seen it.

Technology Downtime!

Published April 9, 2019 by Shay Taree

So a lot of times on YouTube I will watch videos where people discuss their nighttime routines or self-care routines and a lot of times they mention technology downtime.

Technology downtime is pretty much having some time before bed where you don’t engage with technology such as your phone, game system, tv, etc. Usually people use this time to read a book or journal so that going to bed is a relatively easy process or just so that they can think about things.

I honestly have yet to practice this. I am literally addicted to my phone. I mean I’m typing this up on my phone while sitting at my desk for work. I’m on it constantly so when I think of not engaging with it I start to sometimes get anxiety I guess. I started to realize that I use my phone for everything such as playing games and sometimes for even self-care but I know that it’s not healthy and social media plays havoc on my mental health.

So my question is if you currently practice downtime with technology what helps you? What do you do during that time and how long do you do it a day? 1 hour? 30 mins? Several times a day? Comment down below and let me know since I’m pretty interested in trying to do this.

Can Anime Youtubers Influence The Industry/Community?

Published March 27, 2019 by Shay Taree

I decided to do a discussion about this due to how I’ve noticed other influencers on social media or youtube are about to shape the community or brands they represent. So it made me think about whether anime youtubers or influencers are able to do the same. I gave answers for both sides of this argument so check it out to see what I said. Also comment down below your thoughts on this topic.

Self-Confidence Journey: Time To Limit Facebook!

Published December 10, 2018 by Shay Taree

Happy Monday everyone! I know I usually do a video on Mondays but I was able to record so I’m doing a blog post instead. As many of you know I’m continuing on this self-confidence journey and this time I’m adding on Facebook when it comes to limiting social media.

In some ways I honestly think that Facebook may be harder than Instagram and this is because not only do you scroll but people post articles that get you sucked in. Well I know I get sucked in and end up spending more time on there then I wanted to.

As for my Instagram limit I’ve actually been doing pretty well although one day I did go over the limit by a lot. But this was mostly due to the fact that I had an issue to take care of on there. But on a good note I went down like 15% when it came to my total usage so I’m very happy about that. But overall I’m excited about the progress that I’ve made.

So let’s see what happens this week and I know that I’ll be able to succeed. Also feel free to comment down below on your ideas or thoughts on what I’m doing.

Self-Confidence Journey-Meditation & Phone Usage!

Published December 4, 2018 by Shay Taree

So I’m sure that many of you know that last week I was trying my best to only use Instagram for 30 mins a day and surprisingly it is going well. I did noticed that I tend to use my other social media a lot more such as Facebook but I think next week I may put a limit on that as well.

Overall last week I took a good look at my usage and I think I want to try and conquer using my phone less overall. Like I noticed that I tend to pick my phone all the time even when I don’t get a notification. It’s just that I like picking it up. So today I’m going to try and pick it up less.

Plus I’ve actually been trying a new thing this week and that is falling asleep to meditations that work while you sleep. I’ve mostly been listening to self-confidence ones I find on YouTube and they have been pretty cool. They make me very very tired and I kind of feel a difference but I could be wrong so we will see.

I’ve also been trying to journal each night as well to get rid of my feelings that I noticed throughout the day. This is mostly so that I don’t just keep everything inside. But I will get more into that maybe in Thursday’s update since I have a new video releasing tomorrow.

But let’s see how my phone usage goes today!
