Summer Interaction and Social Media


So today, all I want to do is call my other half and tell him that I am bored to death. Keeping in mind that I have done so twice already, I’m at work and there is nothing the guy can actually do. Yet I’m buzzing inside and can’t wait to go home.

I’ve gone through Instagram, Twitter, a bit of Facebook and a bit of Pinterest, finished of my daily admin tasks on the blog, and finished the bits of translation I need to do at work along with my daily tasks. There is nothing of interest on there, only bloggers and money makers. Oh, I also made a lovely exercise work out plan with my brother by messaging and sending videos. So really I shouldn’t be bored or bothered, I’ve actually done quite a bit but I blame it on the weather, it’s getting too hot to work.

I’ve my daily paper too and that’s a load of human scandals and money problems.

It’s the time of year where people are hit with the summer frenzy and if we didn’t have mobile phones with internet on it, I am sure none of us would bother with social media. Or Work. It’s here, the official transition from spring to summer is here and for the next month till everyone starts moaning at heat rather than enjoying it, social networking will drop.

With exams, finals, end of year parties and important decisions the students are busy too. No that’s a large chunk of social people off the internet sites.

So people have started having lunch in parks, sunglasses are now glued to the faces of many till the end of October, motorcycles are going to buzzing about even more than usual and traffic in İstanbul is going has subsided by about 40% during peak time.  With all schools and universities going into their holiday period in three weeks, it is here. We can say bye-bye to winter blues and welcome boredom under the sun and sunburns back into our lives.

Oh let’s not forget summery, happy and half naked photo’s that we will be faced with once we get to interact on the internet again. Nonetheless all I want is a peaceful and stress summer with as little commotion as possible. 


About An Addled Moment

I came to Istanbul to discover not only this beautiful city and its nightlife but I’m also here to discover me.
