Letting it all hang out in Oak Park, IL

I am not surprised that the majority of people rather trade their privacy for convenience, online. The article (see below) does not really surprise me at all in the age of everyone can be a star or show off how narcissistic they can be for free. I mean we are all guilty of posting some type of pictures of ourselves online it just matters to what extent. I have a Facebook, WordPress and blogger/google account but I do not add tons of pictures and often the pictures are after the fact of the event in question. So yes, I have been to Kentucky however I am not stupid enough to tell everyone on Facebook at the exact time I was there, saving my place from a possible break-in.
I really think that the majority of people are sheep and have a “follow the leader” mentality and post pictures and personal details online not because they are doing something important like telling family members of an upcoming wedding or funeral. But instead something mundane because their friends have done so (in the past) so they see no problem with their posts, the “everyone is doing it” argument. But if you have had your place broken in before or are naturally paranoid you veer away from giving the details of your life online. Just because it has not happened to you does not mean it cannot.
The notion of convenience is blurred with the need for acceptance or approval, when we really just need to think clearly and post or navigate online with caution. I do not see the residents of Oak Park, Il following suit, it is just not in their DNA to do so. There is a need for showmanship, a desire to put all on display, a requirement to be “out there” in front of the entire world. We all probably driven the one of the village’s many streets and glanced right into someone’s house window and saw everything they owned in that three second glance. This I would soundly bet is one of those people who believe it is okay to surrender their identity and privacy for the convenience of either the world wide web or for living in Oak Park, IL.
And of course, it is always okay until something bad happens then individuals get wary of “sharing” their personal facts online or with wide open windows. We should all have some type of security and privacy, and we should be entitled to it than either being some perv’s whacky fantasy or a huge corporation’s data victim. Do not sacrifice privacy for convenience or drapes for that open window “look” because in the end you may regret it and once it is out there for all to see it is most likely too late.

My new tape recorder/converter to mp3 is keeping me out of trouble in Oak park, IL

I am sitting here with my new tape recorder it translates the music to a mp3. It gives me something to focus on when coming back home to Oak Park, Il the traffic drives me nuts as is, and the neighbors that want to be my friend or get in my personal business to the point of giving “advice” to me but I really don’t care. So, with this thing, since I am not in school I am either enjoy summer activities, being at work or Some shit.

Therefore, now I got this as a project I have a “go to” to get out of tons of dumb shit. Old lady lectures, dumb social engagements or just plain ass wasting time like a dumbass. The chaos of the village can really depress the shit out of you to the point you are in a rut and you cannot do anything or accomplish crap.

This place is simply demoralizing lol Luckily there are other things to do in the area but Since I rather not spend my rent money on keeping myself entertained I got this thing to transfer old mix tapes to mp3s, old lectures from School to tapes that were made by family and friends.

I rather keep busy and out of trouble instead of being on the mean streets of Oak Park Il navigating too small for traffic streets and riding slowly behind little old ladies who cannot travel the speed limit if their lives depended on it. Seriously. This new project is an overwhelming or going to overtake what I can do for the blog.

Also on a side note, I already have a bunch of Halloween themed posts ready for the month of October ready. Scheduled and ready to post I am also working on wallpapers for that holiday for the blog and my FB account. I get tired of the same old shit that is supposed to be for kids only here in Oak Park, Il

Hence I am thinking about maybe going or having a party during the Halloween week/weekend. I am not really sure because I am taking a full schedule to get done with school. I start the fall 2017 term in two days so I want everything to go smoothly. Hopefully, without my new old ass neighbor being busy, I can get this all done without a lot of interruptions but alas that is Oak Park, Il full of shenanigans ready to screw your world up.

Oak Park, IL blog on Instagram? Nope

Someone asked me about Oak Park, Il blog on Instagram, so I should answer if the blog would ever be on there. Never say never but at this point it’s never. The Oak Park, IL blog is on WordPress, Blogger/Google, I have a Facebook account and a Twitter account (which I am barely on due to stalkers) since this is more about me giving the middle finger to Oak Park, IL than a business or me being obsessive. In other words, there is really no need for an Instagram account for Oak Park, IL LOL

I am not narcissistic nor do I feel I should give this village an avenue for more positive bullshit, that an Instagram account would espouse. In every publication or social media venue than Oak Park, IL has it’s all smiles and fake shit anyway, I know isn’t that what Instagram all about? But that is not what this is about at all. All I got to say is be glad there are actual amateur pictures of the shitty little village.

And if you wonder “Oh what you look like? all I see are photos that are adjusted in some way…” again I know how pervs are and also if wanted the attention I would hang with my friends and/or family, peeps. To me, the business here is about keeping it focused on Oak Park, IL the stuff that is usually not negatively associated with it. And remember Instagram is only for 24 hours! All these blogs I have written would before shit, I think the fucks in Oak Park, IL would love that! Therefore, Instagram + Oak Park, IL is a no go.

Instagram is down, yeah no thanks:

FUCK THAT

Oak Park, Il blog related: WordPress acting crazy??

Okay, what the hell? So, I read a blog post bout another writer that I follow who stated in one of their posts “WordPress shut down” which left me wondering. Mainly because the blog is like academic and I read it to help me with my school projects, you know free tips and downloads stuff like that. I “pm” him (private message) on fb asking what he meant about that. And he responded that WordPress shut DOWN his blog because the stated the automatic filtering program decided he had infringed on the terms of service.

Being an academic blog it made me wonder why it would do that? But the answer he gave me when he asked the same question was that WordPress could not tell him what happened in detail and what he could do in the future to prevent it! Then told him to just post “original content to ensure that a similar block does not happen again in the future”

Hence my question is: if he got the blog back up and the filter made a mistake, then whose fault is it really? How can WordPress trust the filtering system if it is making mistakes this? Who would put money into establishing a WordPress site or blog if it can all get taken away from you by a faulty program? If I was in school this blog being down would screw with my world, so what if he was an affiliate with a highly successful blog, would Word Press compensate him for the money lost by the site shut down?

All this makes me glad that I am not only on Word press but Google/Blogger. This dude is too but has told me he will “dump” all the articles he has written onto a Wix or Weebly site too. To ensure that if WordPress gets crazy once again the blog “lives” on. I was thinking of the same thing just take all my writings and dump it all at once on a Wix or Weebly account to further piss off the masses.

In any case, this is just FYI for all of you that have an account with WordPress, back that shit up on a Microsoft Word or text document so all the work you do on the internet is not lost forever to a stupid ass computer program and pure laziness.

An Oak Park Il blog on … A Wednesday? huh?

Posts on a Wednesday?? WTF??? Recently I have been working wallpapers for the blog for the desktop usage to sharing old posts that did not get my attention when this blog first started. All the while I have been working through the class from hell, with the crazy outburst of a teacher gone wrong. I mean just because you have self-image problems do not make me pay for them! I was in there with a blog buddy of mine and did not know it until we started trading stories so now it is a race to complete our programs to see who will bitch about her first on our blogs!

I updated some of my stuff on Facebook I usually don’t post pictures of me or my friends hanging out but we got lit, like bad, so what the hell. I usually don’t post shit like that because it ends up on twitter were old white guys just want to slap women’s pussies or argue with you the finer points of Hemingway like the know it all shits they are (oh I haven’t forgotten you bitch)!

I am also enjoying the changing of Oak Park, IL into new Chicago, my guess is that it is only a matter of time before the village trustees run this fucking village so far into the red that they vote to become a part of Chicago. I mean look at all the construction around Oak Park, this is not what Frank Lloyd Wright envisioned at all, but of course that fucker has been dead for a generation or two. Times a changing and so is Oak Park, Il heh and the residents are freaking out -I love chaos! See ya soon!
