HEY GOOGLE, MAKE ALLO YOUR MAIN MESSENGER!

I really love Google. My Pixel phone has been great for a good year and a half and I’m really looking forward to the Pixel 3. Google has a badass hardware line and it’s only getting better as we progress forward.

One thing that has been bothering me for quite some time is Google’s messaging apps. They have Hangouts, Android Messages, and Google Allo. Out of the 3 Google Allo seems very promising but after reading about how Allo fell from the top 500 apps list in their very own Play Store, it made me question what in the hell Google is doing.

Google Allo in my opinion is the better of the apps with its smart AI features and elegant design. Just like Apples messenger you can message people from your computer (even though is browser based) and has all the fun filled emojis, stickers, gifs, and smart reply features. What’s really confusing is that Google has implemented these same features in their Android Messages app which makes no sense at all. Why not just take Android Messages out of the picture and make Allo the main texting app on the Pixel phone?

If Google wants to be a fierce competitor to Apple, they need to make Allo the main app of which users communicate through instead of bombarding us with several different messaging apps. Facebook messenger and Whatsapp pretty much have that area on lock. I just really want to have that cool as experience that I had with iPhone but on my Pixel but Google can’t make their minds up.

I totally need to calm down with these angry/sad post that I have been flooding my blog with these past years. I mean yeah, I’ve been going through some rough times mentally, but I don’t think I need to express my frustration in a way that makes it seem like I’m a cry baby.

I noticed a new feature on facebooks mobile app that allows you to view your profile the way a person who isn’t friends with you would. I totally forgot that my page is set to where people that are not my friends cannot see my facebook status’. What I didn’t remember was that all of my wordpress activity automatically uploads to my facebook and for all the public to see.

As I scrolled down I saw post after post of all the sad BS that I’ve posted over the recent months. I don’t think I’ve made any uplifting post in quite some time. I don’t even think I’ve made a post that asserted that life was going good. Thinking about it though, I have trained myself over the years to enter the blogosphere to rant and rave about whatever in the hell I’m going through. From my early post back in high school to now, I’ve wrote some of the gnarliest poetry to the most depressing heartbroken shit I could think of.

I really wanna blame facebook because the app is a totally legal drug with bad side effects. The side effects include jealousy, hate, love, depression, psychological torture, and a sprinkle of “WE CONTROL YOUR LIFE.”

I’m serious.

facebook has turned me into a monster.

MANY OF US ARE CREATIONS OF FACEBOOK.

MY DEPRESSION STEMS FROM FACEBOOK.

i really wanna delete facebook but how else am i gonna get a chicks number or stay in contact.

Oh, I’ll also be damned if I have to be one of those boyfriends who has to look at a Snap story or like every Instagram picture because really, I’m not on those sites often. I’ve cut back on facebook but I’ve been a member for quite some time. It’s never really going to go away. 

I am surprised I didn’t get hooked to twitter because back in the G I used to tweet my ass off. I kept up the tweeting habit until I realized that twitter is listerally based on a social status. If my following count is one sided I’m not gonna fuck with it. The purpose was to interact and share shit, now its like high school but on the internet and I am once again lame. 

Damn internet. 

Going back to my originally subject, I need to lighten up. I’m really just a laid back guy who doesn’t say much so for me to take action through words in a way I have been doing for years is kind of bothering me. Come to think of it, I had to rebrand myself as a rapper and talk more of what I know instead of trying to copy my favorite rapper Ab – Soul.

(Side note, I wanted to be hella lyrical and deep thinking like Soulo but that’s just a small portion of me.)

Maybe that’s what I need to do with this site. Rebrand myself and write about the shit I think about when I’m stoned or the natural beauty of life. I’m going to think about this.

VERY … VERY . . hard.

I remember when I was much smaller I wanted a computer SOOO bad.
 
Everyone I knew had one.
 
On top of that, when people started getting cell phones I was last to get one. On the boot of it, I had to pay for my minutes because I wasn’t on my parents monthly plan.
 
Now that I have grown a lot older, I have managed to achieve those goals I had as a small child. I have a computer, smartphone, and a tablet that are all synced together. I am practically connected to every way that you could possibly access the internet, which was so precious to me when I was younger. Precious because I didn’t have access to it, knowing that all of my friends were on websites playing games and chopping it up in chat rooms.
 
Here I am years later with all the technology that I could possibly dream of and all I do is sit on facebook. My post are vulgar, full of errors and out right rants. I share memes, videos, and goofy pictures of my friends. I scroll hours at a time looking at pointless post that don’t mean a hill of beans in my life.
 
THIS is what I do each and every day, burning countless hours of my life in a virtual world where not one person can sincerely care about you. Status updates saying I’m depressed, countless unchecked notifications becasue it was just a “Like.”
 
this is what i do
 
I’m not sure if I like this. I have found myself lately finding joy in reading a book, minus the ebook part. I’ve been trying to find ways that I can be more productive and manage my time in a such a manner, that will allow me to accel forward.
 
The moral of this story is, my life is consumed in a bunch of likes, shares, and rude comments from characters who think the earth is flat. This is not what I envisioned. I honestly saw myself later on down the road as one of those nerds who spent a lot of time on Secondlife interacting with strangers who just want to dance to EDM music DJ’d by a guy in Guam.
 
I’m just saying.
 
Point being, I got what I want but now I don’t use it for what I initially intended it for.

The longer you steer your eyes towards the indefinite, you’ll lose hope and call for what may seem to be an escape goat.

My efforts of sharing my thoughts have been tainted by clueless souls who feel empowered by social media to cause judgement and blame.

Just remember, they ain’t me and I ain’t them.

YMF.

THESE SHAMPOO PRANKS ARE HILARIOUS!

 

 

Facebook is my home to funny videos, status’s full of bullshit, and stuff like what I found above. I always tell myself I’m going to get rid of facebook but when I come across a funny video like this I shake the thought aside and keep scrolling down for my luls.
