A Random Post: Underage technology, award, followers.

A kid with an iPhone. 
You know, I have ALWAYS wondered, thought, pondered, speculated, that WHY is the generation of today so much more privileged than us when we were their age? I guess the answer is, however, right in front of us. Development of technology. Yes, we didnt have iPhone 4's or, Blackberrys or iPads or Playstation 3s or Xbox 360's or Facebook or Twitter or anything of that sort when we were ten. Or even twelve. These things came now, when we're apparently at the acceptable, responsible age to own those extravagant devices, or have accounts on social media.  The question is, WHY do eight year olds of today own MP3 players, or iPods, or Blackberrys, or even have a Facebook acocunt? WHY? I dont get it. When we were their age, we never owned such expensive novelties. Seriously.
 Just a few days back, a 9 year old cousin of mine was BEGGING me to make her a Facebook account. I honestly thought, that WHAT would a nine year old do with a Facebook account? I dont get it. I had a Facebook account when I was 13. I think, let me know if you differ, but I think that a person should have a Facebook account around the age of 12, minimum. Getting into social media so early may be harmful and wrong for someone so young. And frankly, kids on Facebook annoy the crap out of me. Little kids go ON and ON and ON about how much they love Justin Bieber, Rebecca Black, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus,  etc. and they try to PROVE that they are actually talented, and people love them. They also post annoying statuses which flood the newsfeeds. And why do I have them on my list? Because they are my cousins. Or because they are/were in my school, and begged me to add them so they could have more 'friends'. I dont get it; WHY does having more friends on Facebook apparently make you 'cooler' and more popular? Thats what stupid kids think. And hey, dont get me wrong, I dont hate kids or anything, they're hilarious, cute, and fun to be around, but when it comes to social media and technology, they're annoying as hell.

                                      I just dont get it.

I remember, a few days back, I was at my football stadium, where I train at, and these two kids were talking to eachother about their iPhones. At first, I thought they were just lying, and showing Douche-ism, but then, one of them took one out of their pockets. AN iPHONE 4. THATS SO EXPENSIVE. What kind of parents in their right minds would buy their 11 year old son an iPhone 4. Shit.
A younger cousin of mine, who is really rich, has apparently misplaced an iPhone 3gs, a Blackberry Curve, AND a Nokia C3. Hes only 12. AND FOR SOME REASON, his parents continue to buy him expensive phones, and he continues to be irresponsible.

Anyway, hope you get my point. Kids these days get way more than they can handle. We never got that much when we were their age. But these kids will probably also rant about how much more they should've gotten when they're seventeen when they see other twelve year olds get whatever they want. And people who were seventeen, and we were ten, probably ranted about us getting it all... how typical.

Oh and also, HELLO new followers :D Yayy, 18 followers! I never thought I'd get so many so fast :D I love you guys! And I promise I shall be consistent, and try my best to keep you entertained with my posts. *HUGE SMILE*

Oh and also, I'd like to give my first award. Its the "Best follower" award. And the award goes to...

Furree Katt !

A round of applause! Yes, and she gets this award because she IS the best follower. She herself has like a bazillion followers, but she is awesome enough to still keep up with everyone she is following, and that is A LOT of people. She was basically one of my first followers, and I credit most of my blogging interest and ideas to her! Be sure to check her out! You will never get bored reading her blogs, trust me.

Well, I best be going to sleep now. It is 3 48 AM, and I am barely awake. Bye! Take care people!
