As you may or may not know, I LOVE my social networks. I’m on pretty much everything that anybody actually uses and I actually try to actively keep up with them. If I follow or list you on Twitter, I read about 75% of tweets that go through my timelines. Now with this Facebook timeline thing, I’m sort of doing the same on Facebook as well. I’m pretty much up to date on everything, so much that if you were to ever show me a new meme, I’ve probably already seen it hours or even days ago.

Simple Ways to Track Your Twitter Engagement
I have a lot of friends in real life who like to ask me about Twitter and how on earth I gained so many followers. What I always say is, you have to keep your audience Engaged.
What this means is that you have to interact with others, and provide content that people can comment and interact on. Phrase things in a way that can create conversation and be retweeted. Sure I have the random odd tidbits of my life on my timeline, but often those are the things that don’t keep an audience. Nobody needs to know how your day at work is sucking, unless you can tell them a funny story

DAMN YOU IPAD: Plants vs. Zombies
I have way too many games on my iPad, so many that it takes up all 16gbs. I decided to beat them all and keep record of them on this blog so I can delete them from the iPad. I will review the games I have bothered to beat or get pretty far in as they are the ones worth mentioning.
For some reason I was a latecomer to Plants vs. Zombies. The PopCap game that was originally on Steam sells for $6.99 for the iPad in the iTunes App Store or you can get the cheaper iPhone version for 2.99.
How to Take 15 Minute Power Naps
When I was in highschool, I had a summer job that was 7am-3pm. We had 15 minute breaks and I would try to take naps during them with an alarm set after 15 minutes. Sometimes the naps would make me even more tired than I was before I took them.
When I was in university, I took a vocal training course. I learnt a lot of breathing tips including how to take an efficient 15 minute nap. I’ve been doing this for years now, in between classes, or short breaks from homework and daily tasks. It’s almost like meditation, because the tip to good sleeping is to be able to clear your mind. This is a great thing to try when you have 15 minutes or so and you happen to be feeling exhausted.
My Pets are Spoiled
As you know from my previous post, we recently got a bichon/poodle puppy. The whole family has fallen in love with Teddy and he has everything from the cutest toys and bowls to little sweaters. We’ve also been very health conscious of what he eats from the very beginning.
Don’t Let a Blog Tell You What to Think
It’s obvious that everything said on the internet has to be read with a grain of salt. Whether it be what music marketing method works for you or what cure WebMD has for your current illness.
Lately I’ve watched my friends obsess over the growing phenomenon that is Thought Catalog. On my first time hearing the name of the site, my first instinct was that it was a place that provoked thoughts in a good way. However, upon actually browsing the site I realized that it feeds the same dribble that teen magazines are made up of. The majority of it is articles on relationships and how not to feel sorry for yourself that you are single. Maybe I can’t relate because I am in a happy relationship, but the worst part of all this is my single friends follow it like it’s their religion.
Food Truck Eats: Mississauga Edition Review
Ever since I’ve seen Food Network’s Eat Street, I have been waiting for gourmet food trucks to grace the streets of the GTA. I wanted something more than just the mere hotdog stand (not that those aren’t delicious too).
This year, Toronto started the Food Truck Eats events in the Distillery District. I had missed it in Toronto, but was lucky enough to hear that Mississauga was taking part on this event. They didn’t have quite the amount of trucks, but it was a blast!
I made an effort to try something from every food truck. I split everything with my boyfriend, and went to all the trucks starting with the savoury trucks from left to right. Then came back for the desert ones at the end. Everything was a bit pricey, ended up dropping atleast $50, but delicious novelty has a price.
