BREAKING: My understanding is that on Twitter you can create a private account, and you can okay who can see your tweets and who can’t. Also, Twitter may be more public, but one typically gives significantly less personal information on it.
BREAKING: I’m doing pretty well! I managed to catch up on my school work, so that’s a huge load off of me. I have a little bit of homework to do tonight, but it shouldn’t take too long, which is great because, with my perfectionism, simple things normally take FOREVER. Also, I managed to make it through a really long announcement over the intercom today without noticeably messing up! And now I’m eating my mom’s pot roast for dinner, and her pot roast is AMAZING. (My whole thing with weird Facebook privacy is what if someone managed to find my parents’ accounts or someone else I know who doesn’t have as much privacy as I do. I guess that’s still the case on Twitter, but again with the easy blocking.)
BREAKING: How are y’all doing?
BREAKING: When you say “My whole thing with weird Facebook privacy,” are you referring to privacy in general, or the not wanting to like things on the Aux Cable Show page thingy? I’m doing okay…
BREAKING: I totally understand the latter… I would struggle with the same thing if I had Facebook.
BREAKING: We’re wicked close to 700 posts on this thread…
I don’t mind people seeing me on acs and etc, cuz from that point they cannot see or do anything.
I’m doing well. Second peak starts in a week or so. Which means 48+ hour work weeks.
BREAKING: RYAN UPLOADED A VIDEO OF HIM SKYDIVING ON YOUTUBE! (Also I’m the first view and like, which is always fun!)
BREAKING: (To Carrot on #4889) It’s about the liking posts on the Facebook page.
(To Kristen) Man, that’ll be… something. I’ll keep you and your sanity in my prayers.
(I will have to watch it later. But I know he was excited. His boss live streamed them before they got on. Ryan was very chill…like scarily so)
I lost my sanity a long time ago. But my patience. That’s something I may need prayers for lol
Breaking: carrot, passive aggressive posts are pretty bad on fb. But subtweeting is when you mention the person by name. But don’t tag them or whatever. Example: “MatthewTheBird” vs “@MatthewTheBird”…on fb, nobody mentions anybody during passive aggressive posts. It’s more like “SOMEBODY doesn’t blah blah blah”
Also, brooke, it’s amazing that you made it through the announcement and get pot roast!!! (I like roast and rice and gravy…mmmmmm)
BREAKING: To my understanding, you can subtweet by doing the passive-aggressive route, too. It doesn’t necessarily have to be negative, though. On Chris’ last Q&A, I asked the question about tomatoes, and some person ended up tweeting something along the lines of, “When someone keeps bringing up tomatoes” with a Chris-reaction-picture.
And thanks, Kristen! Honestly, I could hardly catch my breath during the announcement because 1) it was INCREDIBLY wordy, and 2) I had to talk to the whole school. There’s a different kind of stress that comes with the intercom. I’m used to singing in front of people. I’m even getting better at talking in front of people. (Which is much different from singing. Talking directly from a script makes it awkward for both you and the people watching you, and memorizing word-for-word what you want to say ends up sounding weirdly formal. You have to kind of wing it.) I’m taking public speaking this semester and it’s going really well. But when you talk over the intercom, there are no visual cues. Listeners rely on your word and vocal inflections and nothing more, so there’s less room for leniency if you mess up. I could read from a script, though, and that made it easier at least.
Also, YES! We didn’t have rice this time, but pot roast and carrots and celery and LOTS of gravy. And milk. You love that, Kristen.
Oh….how I just…adore milk…
I can’t sing, so I never have to sing in front of people (thank God), and I cannot speak in front of people. Even at work. When it’s just me and the client. I don’t speak to them. I only ask necessary questions. And then there are people that I speak to (typically guys), and my coworkers are like “KRISTEN! YOU SPOKE…TO AN ACTUAL PERSON!!” I can’t speak to people…in a work setting. Like I can speak to my coworkers, and my managers, but…not the clients. Idk.
I had to recite the preamble to the Constitution to my mom, and I about had a heart attack. It turned into me just singing school house rock (remember how I mentioned that I can’t sing) (somehow I passed)
Breaking: I would love if I could sing, but I can’t, so I play guitar by myself, to myself, in my room. (And mandolin), and however I can rap (not freestyle), nobody really knows, so I never have to prove myself.
BREAKING: That’s great that you can talk to your co-workers and managers, though! I can barely do that, and same, I can’t talk to guests. I don’t know how to conversation. Especially with most of my peers in a casual setting. I’ve only recently forced myself to talk to more than my best friend, and it’s SO HARD TO SOCIALIZE AND I DON’T LIKE IT. Like, I like the fact that I get to be around people who make me happy, but then when anxiety comes and slaps me in the face it tells me how bad I am at talking and how boring or uncomfortable I probably seem to the other person.
BREAKING: I like interacting with people and having conversations… as long as I know the people well. If I don’t… I probably seem like a serious weirdo that doesn’t talk or smile.
BREAKING: I can rap to Moana, Hamilton, Adler, and Phineas and Ferb. If AuxCon ever happens, I would really want to hear you rap or play guitar, but not if you don’t want to, of course.
Breaking: I’m an extrovert, so I love talking to people…but I’m shy…so not new people.
I also cannot be fake. So I am always extremely sarcastic (I don’t cross over the line of disrespectful though) and very demented. At work, I tend to just be quiet, as to not…get in trouble for being sarcastic and demented. There are a few clients I can be sarcastic with, and they tend to be my favorites.
But don’t ask me to call and order pizza. Or ask someone at a store where something is.
I only talk to my two best friends. They are all I need. I tend to be very annoying as well, and they seem to be the only people that can put up with it that isn’t family.
BREAKING: I forgot to add the hit-single Double Knots by Ryan Matlock.
BREAKING: Same to that second part, Carrot.
Breaking: rapping to moana is what I do while getting the office ready to open on Tuesday and Thursday every week. Along with Eminem, töp, and g-easy (one song by him) (all the clean versions)
I would be shy rapping or playing in front of people, but I would try, cuz yall wouldn’t judge. I just might apologize a lot
BREAKING: It would be cool if we could actually download Double Knots and Pick-up Puns somewhere… I also can rap as long as I know the song. I can sing… if I can find the right octave.
Breaking: I’m the opposite of yall. Yall stand there quietly not smiling. And I’m the weirdo that is putting my two sense into every conversation and trying to be everyone’s friend and cannot stop smiling. I either smile or death glare. There is no in between. I also tend to be clingy to my friends.
Deep conversations keep me going. I get so much energy from them. I would nothing but deep conversations if it were possible. I also get energy from arguments.
BREAKING: I feel like I should clarify that I only like clean Hamilton.
But yes, downloading the songs would be great! Isn’t that one of the Patreon features?
BREAKING: I’ve been on the platform/stage/whatevs at my church before… I was usually self-conscious and embarrassed. Ever since when I was like nine and had way more lines than anybody else in a musical, I’ve been somewhat scared of being in front of people. I’m scared that they’ll complement me… I was on stage yesterday, but that was just to hand one of the worship leaders his glasses, which he forgot and left in his seat.
Breaking: if you give Ryan like…however much a month you get the downloads to them
BREAKING: Yes, it’s a Patreon reward… for $15 a month. Debates are fun…
Is clean Hamilton on amazon prime? I should look. Everyone goes on and on about it.
Also, the les mis soundtrack is life!! Though, no rapping. Just very intense lip syncing to…anything with jarvert and jean valjean.
