Social Media or No Social Media

Dear diary,
Have you noticed that there are some songs that when you watch the video it just gives you joy? I was watching the video of No Limits by Usher this morning and I was just smiling all through. I don’t even really like the song but that video just brought back all my dreams of being a dancer (doesn’t seem to be happening soon, though😩). I watched it over and over again. It’s just really nice. I feel the same way when I watch the video of Guillotine by Jon Bellion. I absolutely love that song and the video was just the icing on the cake.

I was watching Blackish yesterday (I’ve been watching a whole lot of stuff recently😂😂) and the major topic on the episode I was watching was social media and its dangers. It reminded me that I had written something in social media before. It’s been quite a while so I’m re-posting it for all of you who haven’t read it. I hope you enjoy it.
