Life takes over

I have learned that after starting posting again that life has away for taking over. Years ago I loved posting (still do) but after having my first child and moving and getting with my husband life took over and I stopped. Till this site came along, It has reminded me how much I love it. I get on today and have alerts and realize it has been a few days and life took over again. Granted I do know that I can't do it as much as I did way back when but I also what to make sure I find time for it as it brings me joy. Right now I would normally be watching a movie with husband getting ready to go to sleep as I have to adult tomorrow and go to work. Im glad I got on tonight and I'm really wanting to put the effort in to making sure I find time for it even if I cant be here overnight, :)

Awwwww  <3  I feel the same too!

Forums and such have been a large part of our life back then!! This is like being in a club or a society meeting you just go in and socializing or discussing! Forums are not easy, if you want to slide into someone's post or messages on forum, you gotta bring something to the table! oh or others WILL see your weakness.  ;D

Life does have a way of taking away or taking over our plans and desires, but can't complain. it is as if preparing to appreciate and enjoy and love the moments and little matters more so than ever! Live the moment and live another moment during the break from the first moment!  :skipping:

Thank you for coming to the forum and giving some time to post! It's not easy so I truly appreciate it!

:snapout:  "can't post much"  ::)  You just changed dosing from what I see. From a hundreds a week to a thousands a day  :razz2:

I am going to give time as much as I can out of any breaks and free time I may have. I brings me join to have reconnected with offline/online friends online (I was going to say on social media/network) but this is different. Forums have always been different.   :hug:

Express our ways and let others see how we be! We got nothing to hide, but to share our wit, wisdom, fun silly moments, respectable goof, and all that real social part of "social networks"!

 I love this so much more then the "normal" social media. My husband thinks its different and was asking tonight if this was tagged to my Facebook at all and Told him no and did not give him a reason why. I don't think I have a reason for not aside from I think it take a different kind of person to understand the joy you get from forums and I don't feel that there are many people who would care on there I guess. This is not a place where you can post on one and only put a small line you have to put some thought in to it sometimes. I hope one day this becomes the norm and more people learn the fun you can have with it.

SAME! And I agree with you!

I mean FB is good to stay in touch but how things are more and more so now with regulation on even memes in general or meme contents as fake (well, DUH! not like we've dined with ET or gone to fight Darth Vader or whatever we shared in the memes). But in general, other than the specific school or work groups, it's just dumbing us down and making more unsocial! We do not think, but we just scroll and scroll and scroll and "react" on FB and alikes. React with emojis and for what? Nobody read all! Forums, heck you gotta be on your toes and think smart and creative WHAT SMILEY to post or HOW to react/post!

More and more do not care to actual socialize more than "to share what they did and glow and gloat about themselves, more than to hear about others!". That's just sad. Forums are like phone talk but you type more and in depth. More than texts too because most just "text for the sake of a reply".

This is just one of our hobbies. Some people go to bars, clubs, shows, festivals, travelings, etc... and some go on forums. Just a different way to relax and socialize! All activities are fun, but sometimes to each their own, or just to mix it up with this and that for better relaxing!  :woot:

They will jail anyone who speaks out or just be!

And Yes! Actual half-naked or foul-mouthed not even in a stating something strongly way, but just rude and foul-mouthed, they are all "safe"!


I got warned for bible quotes or some memes without appeals, and when I posted about that, I got another ding for posting about "that which include the original that in the screenshot" and the never-ending loop resulting to more warning and restrictions in a day!  :lmao:  >:(

Social Media can be so stupid sometimes

It used to be fun. it used to be about connecting people with distant family and friends or to help stay in touch.
Then greed from excessive monetization (way more than the "reasonable to cover for servers and some profit")
Then politics and all went downhill FAST!  :(
