The fact is we all have 24 hours in a day, have you ever take notice of what you spend your time on the most? As for me I’ve been blogging for almost 4 years now, if I were to spend my time studying I would most likely earn my Master or PhD by now. I blog mostly about myself and family, but yet you don’t know anything about my profession or what I do for a living and that’s the kind of things that we share online. Kind of unfair some of you might think, but if you look at the situation square in the eyes, the same goes for most of you. How much of your life do you share with your online friends. I think we all set our boundaries, the invisible walls that most of us put up. But since I’m an analyst I could analyze most situations well, I know a lot more than most think.
Back to the 24 hours per day, and social culture wise, I realize that I’m falling farther and farther behind, kind of funny when my GI Joe sister whom didn’t know anything about the computer cookies not too long ago was trying to teach me how to text because it’s the in thing now. And shocking for some to know that I don’t have a Facebook (FB) or twitter because it’s the cool thing now. I often wonder how people have time to do all these things, kind of not surprise to see that some people actually check their FB or twitt on the company’s time. Even a grandma in her late 60s is checking on her FB to see what her friends and families are up to these days and here I thought that FB was for young college students only.
As for some, traveling is the thing that they like to do, and my uncle in France loves to travel. It’s my job to update his photoblog for him which I’m more than happy to do so since I get to see all the cool pictures and places that he visits, although I really wish that I was there. I have to say that being able to share photos online is one of the best things that the Internet has to offer. I love looking at photos, and here are some that he took on his recent trip to Laos and Thailand.
This is the Plain of Jars in Xieng Khouang, which is a province in northern Laos. This small town was heavily bombed during the Vietnam War, mostly by the Americans. So for much of its history, Xieng Khouang was known as a battleground, might be that it’s located between Vientiane, the capital city of Laos and Vietnam. This small town is growing rapidly, the tall building on the left hand side is Xieng Khouang Hotel.
Many guest houses, the ones on top of the mountain must have the most beautiful view.
The market in town.
My uncle knows how to make the most out of his trip. He has several friends in Thailand and visits them on his way back.
That’s the life. Have you figure out yet of what you spend your time on the most?
