I am not a teenager

According to a recent survey, the mere fact that you are reading this blog, that there is a blog here for you to read to begin with, means I am not a teenager. In fact, it means I’m over 30. (I actually really like being over 30.)

Great! Now my own blog is calling me old. :annoy:

While I do agree that concise writing is definitely a skill to develop (when the assignment says to turn in a 3-4 page paper, and you turn in an 8 page paper, you better believe you won’t get full credit on it), my thoughts tend to vary in length. Plus, I like making it easy for those who want to read my thoughts (Hi Mom! :silly: ) to do so. So tweeting or simply using social networking “status updates” doesn’t really appeal to me.

I am also the type of person who fully plans to celebrate tomorrow’s “Send a card to a friend day” by writing at least one letter on paper that will then be put in an actual envelope, have an actual stamp stuck to it, and then sent physically to its destination.

But see, this might actually be the real problem:

One student said teenagers had lost interest in blogging because they needed to type quickly and “people don’t find reading that fun”.

Reading not fun?!? What kind of blasphemy is that?!? 😮

Kids these days. What is the world coming to?
