Day 18 wants to know a secret about me. Usually, I hope that millions of people come and read my blog, but this time, I hope my readership is low because after I tell you this secret, I’ll have to kill you.
I have thought and thought about this topic and I really can’t think of any secrets. Or really, any secrets that I’m willing to share on the internet for everyone to see. Consider yourself saved.
I mean, of course I have secrets- who doesn’t? I just feel like there’s a different kind of secret that should be released to the internet. Things that might come out in casual conversation, maybe over a few drinks are ok. Because remember, there was a time not too long ago that drinks and conversation with actual people was considered “social networking”. Things that you should go to a priest or the police with, are not ok. What defines each type of secret depends on the secret haver/ teller.
I guess I could admit that although I love being an only child, recently I have been wanting a brother or sister – or two. I wanted on for a few years as a kid and got over it when I realized I didn’t have to share anything. But now, I kind of wish I had an older brother or sister. I think part of it is because my mom has siblings and I see how close they are and I see how close my cousins are with each other as siblings. Don’t get me wrong, my cousins and I are extremely close, but at the end of the day, it’s not the same. Also, I want to be an aunt. As happy as I will be for my cousins and friends when they have children, and accept the title of “Aunt Martina” without hesitation, I can’t help but to feel that it’s just not the same. The love for the kids will be there, no question. But there’s a difference between friend/cousin aunt and Aunt aunt. You know?
What are some of your “social networking” secrets?
