I'm a senior in college majoring in English and I'm passionate about education.
I’m 21-years-old, and I’m alive and well in the year 2018. A time to be alive for a woman. Being able to own property is cool, being able to receive an education, being treated as a person instead of an object (most of the time), and having fundamental human freedoms. Why is it, that in 2018, I still feel like I must choose between having a relationship and a career? It’s one or the other, right? That’s how we’ve all been trained.
Why Won't He Leave Me Alone?
As I make my 40-minute drive home, I find myself not being able to ignore my wrist any longer. I’m not able to resist the constant vibrations even though I am almost home. I go ahead and scroll down on my Apple Watch to see what notifications I’ve received while I’ve been on the road. I find a few news headlines, a text message, and the tweet. I don’t know why I still subscribe to his tweets because most of the time they are always the same. I’ve discovered a pattern of how he tweets and whether it’ll be a rant of sorts. There is nothing more irritating than receiving three or four notifications from Twitter in a row. Especially in the morning when I wake up. The first thing I see is a string of four or five tweets. 6 AM is the perfect time to tweet a rant apparently. I wish he would just stop tweeting so I wouldn’t have to worry about him. It’s almost like a game because I never know what is going to happen next. Staying up to date is great, but sometimes I regret delving into the addictive world of the Apple Watch.
