Day 5: A Thorough Scroll

Ahh the weekend, finally a day where I can sit in bed for an hour after waking up just casually checking through my social media. I scroll through everything I would usually look at (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr and Youtube) however since I have more time I look at them in more depth. Instead of simply checking my notifications, I am able to have a thorough look at what people have been posting overnight as well as in the past week or so. Today this involved looking through some of my favourite Tumblr blogs, (1, 2, 3) mainly just reading through questions they’ve answered and seeing what they’ve been posting. I like taking my time to read through these as they post very detailed and long answers and posts that I want to be able to dedicate more time to reading thoroughly. These blogs in particular are my favourites because they’re positive and arty/creative and they tend to leave me feeling very happy and inspired.

I also spent some time on Facebook, where I liked a few posts that people had shared in a vegan group that I am a part of. One of these was linked to an article about a 90 year old dairy company who have now switched to only producing plant-based milks. I liked this post within the group because it made me happy to see the changes that are being made in regards to the reduction of the consumption of animal products within society.

Today was also one of my good friend’s birthday so I spent some time looking through photos that we’d taken and chose one to post on her Facebook wall. I added a little caption wishing her a happy birthday and letting her know that I was thinking about her. During her party I also posted many Snapchat videos of all of us dancing and singing happy birthday which I posted on my story for all my friends to see.


Day 4: The Obsession Continues

As usual, the first thing I did this morning was scroll through my social media. Ironically a tweet from one of my favourite dancers came up on my feed which read “I am not a morning person”. I retweeted this tweet because it was 6am and I felt that I could really strongly relate to it and also thought the timing was very funny. I then continued to look through my Instagram notifications, liking a few photos of friends and celebrities that I follow.

Other than listening to music on Spotify on the way to uni and completing work online on Blackboard and Google Docs whilst there, I didn’t really get the chance to use the online space again until I arrived home. Once home, I was extremely tired from my early start so I allowed myself to watch some Youtube videos. I watched about 10-15 videos from my subscription box with these mainly relating to fashion, lifestyle or vlogging.

I have also still been very much excited about the Beauty and the Beast movie, so I spent a lot of time watching interviews with the cast. When a movie comes out that I really love I always tend to indulge in watching interview after interview to get a sense of what it was like behind the scenes and to also just enjoy the funny stories the cast have to tell. My favourites were this interview where Emma Watson told the story of how they shot the snowball scene in the new movie and this one where Emma Watson and Dan Stevens answered frequently searched questions about themselves and the movie.

I went to bed quite early today however I still made time for my usual before-bed scroll through social media. I spent a particularly long time on Tumblr where I liked and reblogged a lot of posts from my favourite bloggers. These were generally photography and quote type pictures, many relating to ideas of feminism and positivity as well as just some fashion pictures that I thought looked nice.
