On social media and sharing your personal life in your 30s

I've noticed a subtle shift in my social media habits recently. I haven't been sharing as much personal information as I used to. I look back at some of my older blog posts or even my very old LiveJournal (RIP) and cringe. Why did I feel the need to share so much? I'm glad social media wasn't really around when I was in high school. God only knows what I would have been sharing. If we ever have children you can bet I will be watching their social media like a hawk.

Snapchat recently launched a Snap Map feature. People can now see where you are down to the street address. I might have thought this was a neat feature a few years ago when I shared everything but now I find it a bit creepy. No one needs to see where I am at all times or how often I'm at Wholefoods.

I still share my life via social media but now I'm more selective of what I post. I'm more aware of how what I post could be perceived by others. Knowing some people at work were discussing my instagram certainly has made me think twice about what photos I share.

I don't regret how open I was in my 20s on my blog and social media but I'm perfectly happy keeping some things private now.

The wedding photos are in

We may not have had a videographer for our wedding but one thing I knew I wanted was a professional photographer. We hired Josi of Josi Photo and she was worth every (reasonable) penny. We love how the photos came out.

Now to decide which ones to print.

Walk around the res

Derek and I just got back from a nice long walk around the reservoir. It's a 1.56 mile loop around and probably about a mile walk to get to from our apartment. Feels good to get the blood pumping on a Saturday night. We have a wedding tomorrow at noon at a winery so we're staying in tonight.

I got an email from our wedding photographer that our wedding photos were uploaded but the link didn't work. I emailed her about it so hopefully it will be fixed soon. I really want to see the photos.

I want to have a snack but I should be good and not eat before bed. So I say NO to you avocado and tortilla chips.

Hump day

I'm currently reliving my early 20s through music on Spotify. The Killers, Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire, Franz Ferdinand, MGMT, Passion Pit. There was some good music happening in the 2000s.

Derek brought me home a six pack of Harpoon Camp Wannamango. I'm looking forward to drinking those delicious bad boys later this week. I'm sticking to the H2O tonight. Once the laundry is done I'm off to bed.

Do the right thing

If you read my blog regularly you probably know that I despise Donald Trump. I don't think he's fit to lead this country and seems to be dragging us backwards. His latest terrible decision is to pull the US out of the Paris Climate Agreement. Why anyone would be against protecting the planet is beyond me.

Yesterday the Mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh, was quick to say that Boston would uphold the Agreement.

Boston is consistently ranked as one of the top greenest cities in the US and I'm grateful to live in a city that embraces clean energy and protecting our environment.

Boston is not the only city pledging to uphold the Climate Agreement. 92 other Mayors have also agreed to continue to honor the Agreement.

We will continue to lead. We are increasing investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency. We will buy and create more demand for electric cars and trucks. We will increase our efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions, create a clean energy economy, and stand for environmental justice. And if the President wants to break the promises made to our allies enshrined in the historic Paris Agreement, we’ll build and strengthen relationships around the world to protect the planet from devastating climate risks. The world cannot wait — and neither will we.
I hope more cities pledge to honor the Agreement.
