I’m up in Los Angeles today for a follow-up with my shoulder surgeon.
I wanted to give a couple quick, random, updates while I’m gone.
• For the puppy followers – Frank weighed 46.5 pounds at his 16 week check-up on Saturday. The vet pronounced him “a perfect puppy.” Fred weighed 56 pounds when he was 16 weeks, but we all know Fred is super-sized even by Newfie standards. (Frank is on the smaller size, but he’ll probably be average-ish once he reaches adulthood.)
• If you’re one of the bazillion people I owe an email to right now, I apologize. I hope to be caught up on email at some point this week. My email situation is out of control right now.
• I’m now on Snapchat. I was on Snapchat before, but I deleted it. This time around, I’m going to make an attempt to actually use it. It’s really not fun without friends, so if you’re on Snapchat ALSO …. my username is suzannehaggerty and/or my code is:
Snapchat has definitely gotten better than when I looked at it as an early adopter.
And, let’s be honest, I’ve barely played with it even now, so I don’t really know what I’m doing.
But, I do like the spontaneity of it.
I like taking a random iPhone photo/video and adding it to my “story” for the day.
I like seeing other people’s stories too.
I don’t like the people who are on it nonstop all day every day.
(Because really? No one is THAT interesting except to themselves.)
It’s fun to get glimpses, however, into people’s real lives vs. the more polished lives people present on other forms of social media.
I also like receiving/sending random snaps to and from family members and friends.
Snapchat has evolved and I think I like the direction it’s going in.
If you don’t use it yet, maybe you should download the app and give it a try?
I’m just getting started with it, but in the future I imagine I’ll “snap” while out on shoots, share some videos of the Newfies, beach life, art projects, travel, and some of the ridiculousness of Orange County.
I might even share a little of my today, up in Los Angeles, with you ….
