Conveniently Starting to Give Way

As this being my first of many posts online. I may have to consider the penalty of exposing my secrets. After all, the privacy button doesn't even exsist. But, if you think about it, why bother even trying to keep a secret online. Ever heard of a diary? It's made of actual paper binded together with glue and pasted onto a hard cover. You write in it and lock the book away where no one can find it but you.
With the convienience of online access, it's hard not to indulge oneself with its easy use. Even YouTube subscribers use this opportunity to "blog" about their lives, called vlogs (video blogs). I may be slightly behind the mainstream hippies, but at least I know when to keep to myself.

It's amazing how people can throw themselves out there to the public eye like a sixty-year-old man streaking because of a mid-life crisis or lack of...Probably going through dementia already.

Interestingly enough, I even find certain things online quite nostalgic. On Twitter, there are people posing as Star Wars characters going through their daily lives. Being a fan (a not so hardcore one), I followed Yoda and Darth Vadar. Their 'twits' give me a good laugh to start off my day; even CNN keeps me informed to what's going on around me. Convenient, but not necessary.
Email and posts online keep tabs on everyone. It makes you wonder if the government keeps tabs on you. Behind the scenes, the government is behind all the work and all the conspiracy. Reminds me of a South Park episode I watched where it spoofed the 9/11 tragedy where Cartman blames Kyle for the conspiracy.

"The world's biggest conspiracy of all time is finally uncovered when Eric Cartman exposes the true culprit behind the September 11th attacks." - South Park, Season 10, Mystery of the Urinal Deuce.

Come to think of it, the episode is so stupid, it makes sense in a weird, twisted way. Hmmmm....I'll have to twitter this.
Anyways, thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed it even though it's short. I'll be more enlightening next time if I find something to grind on. Till next time!

Oh yeah, before I forget, all comments are wecomed!
