I wonder what would a Hashtag expert be called? Maybe all he/she would do is hashtag everything, everywhere! There was a time when I used to struggle with those Hashtags used in the coding language, now my social media feed is filled with more hashtags than pictures or even words. Nope, I didn’t feel it was strange until I realized how ignorant I was about what is actually happening in the world out there! I seldom considered any news to be important or trending if it didn’t begin with a hashtag! In fact, typing hashtag in the place of ‘#’ feels odd.
Most of the teens, including me are dealing with the same tags in the day-to-day life! The days start with a morning motivation or a ‘woke up like this’, rarely having that perfect Instagram breakfast, the busy streets, the bestie meets, the missing home and many more! Not to miss out those self-obsessed selfies and cliché captions. Come on, all of us have done all these at least once! We really are trapped by those two pair of parallel lines, which we claim to be our world! Maybe being an adult is just about being that little kid who enjoys the crowded street, the messy feast, the little fight and sleeping tight!
After this birthday, the life, for me would be living in the moment, capturing more with my beautiful eyes, and saving all the memories to cherish! It would be more of experiences and words with some little hashtags here and there. I’m sure life would be less complicated and more beautiful when looked past the hashtags and not through the hashtags! Cheers to a new beginning, the less tagged but more priced one!
