I took the Facebook app off my phone and it's a strange feeling. It firmly puts in perspective how much I am on Facebook when I pick up my phone.

I did the same thing a few months back (actually when the app started asking for some crazy-level permissions) and it does clear some time.

I have a fear. I want to call it an irrational fear, but at the same time I think it's a very rational one.

I'm afraid to share my opinion. I am anti open carry, pro life, feminist, naturalist, and animal rights supporter. I feel, especially on social media, if I share my opinion I will be blasted in the most negative way by friends and other random keyboard warriors.

I will be equated to nothing more than a f**king deadbeat hippy who kills babies and loves cats too much. Plus I'm a woman. What important opinion could a woman possibly hold?

I wish more people were open to have civil and respectable discussions about their beliefs. Not, "I'm gonna blow you away with my gun because you're trying to take it away" attitude.

Maybe I should just keep my mouth shut from now on.

Running
I've never liked running. To me, it is boring, monotonous, and very tiring. Your legs get tight, your heart beats fast, and your breathing gets hard. Not to mention you become a sweat-covered monster during the whole process. But here's the thing: running i...

I really ought to check my google+ more often but I was happy to read this! I just started running a few weeks ago and it's never been my favorite activity but it's one if the best ways to get your body going and kick it into shape. I feel better on the days that I run, mentally and physically, and I noticed on days I don't do it I feel my body slipping back into its sloth state which makes me more motivated to continue keeping it in my routine. It's the only time of day I have to myself and slowly I've grown to love it and find it addicting. Now I've got my first 5k coming up :) miss you Ayla! Thanks for writing this :)

Awesome!
 
Google has announced a premium set of features for Google Apps for Business: unlimited storage, Vault archiving of all mail and everything stored in Drive, etc. On top of that, native editing of many Office filetypes is now standard. This effectively addresses the most common objections to ditching boxed software. 👍👍
