Just a Speck

You hear stories every once in a while about people getting in trouble, or even being fired, because of things they have posted online. Whether it be about their job or a personal thing, it came back and bit them in the ass.

I guess I'm thinking about it now because I've been a little more free with my thoughts about my job lately. I actually posted the words "I hate my job" online (there! I did it again!), but at this point I don't even care. 

You have to wonder, though. The internet is so VAST. This blog is so minuscule. Would anyone find it? Would it even matter? I've tried to keep my writing life separate from my real life because I just didn't want everyone knowing about it. I don't even like that more people I know IRL are looking at my Instagram feed. The internet, aside from Facebook, has always been my place to interact with people I don't know. People who have the same interests as me. To me, that is what the internet is all about. Or at least it should be.

People I know and interact with on a daily basis don't know the real me. They don't share the same interests as me. Or maybe they do, but it's not worth the effort to find out. I have to see the same people every day at work. Do I want to hang out with them after hours? Not really. But I don't have a lot of close friends. Or even random friends. The beauty of being an introvert, I guess. Which is another benefit of the internet. I can be whoever and say whatever I want. I don't have to worry about people thinking I'm weird. Because I know people think I'm weird. Just because I have different interests.

So whatever. Let them think what they want, you know? It's not going to change me.

(As usual, this wasn't where I was going when I started this post :-) but there's where it went...)
