Monday Musing Now With Twitter

I’m just going to put it all out there: My name is Jessica and I am shy person. Or should I say a shy introvert cause really they are two different things. Anyway, I have no idea where the shyness came from. While my nuclear family is small, my extended family on both sides has always been big. Then there was my Father’s friends. Nigerians LOVE to party so there were always get togethers every weekend and of course there were other kids around. I should be a social butterfly but instead I’m the bewildered moth that moves awkwardly towards the light.

Anyway, this year I decided that I would continue getting uncomfortable by opening myself up more online. I have this weird thing about social networking that probably skirts the line between oldster and hipster. The former: a thanks, but I’ll stick to Friendster Myspace Facebook. The latter: ...but I don’t want to do what everyone else is doing. However when Twitter came out I didn’t quite get the appeal. Even up until late last year I hesitated. Then I realized I can’t live in a bubble for too long, so now after setting up an account last year, I have finally decided to use it. You can follow me here. I’m still trying to get used to the site. I’ve already encountered spam, a phishing attempt, and a new design layout so I feel like my hazing is somewhat complete. Plus, I have to remember I can’t blog about everything here so Twitter seems like the natural supplement not to mention another way to connect with others. Oh, and battle my pesky shyness.

Happy MLK Day!
