Who am I?

I am a person who cares more about others well being than my own. How have I reached this sentence?

Growing up in a house hold of all men besides my mom, we were always taught to treat others with respect and respect woman and act like a gentleman at all times. My mom wanted me and my brothers to always know that if we put others interest in front ours that our interest and desires would take care of themselves. I have to admit, I have selfish tendencies just like every other person in this world, but I do put others in front of my self most of the time. Sometimes people have told me I need to put my self first sometimes because I’m always stopping whatever I am¬† doing to help others when needed.

It all started within the household of the Rogalla’s, yes but I first really became this person when I started working with special needs kids in high school. When I was working with those wonderful kids closely everyday for four years you learn somethings about your self and being a good person.

Working with the kids that were going through the problems that they had and were still able to have a smile on their face and put a smile on mine, that was special. So when you have to stop what you are doing to put these kids needs in front of yours to help them, that wasn’t a problem for me, and i guess it just stuck with me.

Putting others in front of me is just who I am these days, I love taking care of people and love that feeling I get when someone is happy and I assisted with that.

 

Social Media

Social Media is apart of our every day life, you have two options, you can join or suffer and be left behind. I personally chose to be apart of the fad, that most thought would die down. Instead social media is more alive than ever. I am a huge fan of Instagram and twitter. I use these two accounts the most because they are easy to use and most of my friends are on these two accounts. I don’t use Facebook as much as I use to. Facebook is just too old for me and my grandma is on Facebook. ¬†Social media is a great way for me and all my friends to stay in touch, before these accounts I would have to text and call, but with these two accounts have allowed me to stay on top of my friends with what ever they are doing or wherever they are at. I really like social media because its the best way to get news and also keep up on what everyone I know is doing. In this class I hope to gain a deeper acknowledgment into what really goes into the making of social media and how the behind the scenes works. My favorite sites and tools to use are some blog sites and sports news sites, because I’m so into sports.

I think that social media is one of the best things to ever happen to this world for a variety of reasons, its the best way to keep up with whats going on in this world from news or keeping up with ones own friend groups. I cant wait to learn more about social media and this class, because there is so many things to learn about the wide world of social media.
