Hey everyone! I had a birthday this month and received a FitBit Alta as a gift. The FitBit Alta is one of the latest FitBit models, along with the new FitBit Blaze. It comes in four basic colors, but I had the black one (there were customizations you could purchase for it later if you wanted). At first, I loved it! It was slim, unlike other FitBits I had seen before. I was also excited to get reminders to move throughout the day, during my sedentary desk job, and to see how many calories I burned. However, the usefulness of the fitness wristband stopped there for me.

A while ago I wrote on the blog about how I had become disenchanted with Star Wars: The Old Republic. I was no longer logging in and playing like I used to. I knew, eventually, that my account would go into the Preferred status, because I removed my payment information from my account before my subscription ran out to prevent it from auto-renewing. However, even though I knew it was coming, I was a bit shocked when I did finally log in, because my guild needed a fill-in for an operations group, and I was available.
Last weekend I made an account on Snapchat! I saw plenty of people using it, but I hadn’t wanted to sign up. It seemed like another social media account that I would have to check or contribute to, and I’m on my phone enough using Twitter and Facebook.
However, after seeing my cousins howling in laughter at the face-swap filter at our family BBQ, I decided I wanted to have fun with it also and made the account. It took me a little bit to figure out how to use filters and how to get to certain screens on the app, but I think I understand the basic gist now.
If you want to follow me, my username on Snapchat is heatherpls. I can’t promise that I’ll post much, look at your stories, or even respond to people on there, but maybe I’ll end up using it more over time. Currently, I’m much more active on Twitter and Instagram (@Heather_PLS)!
Do you use Snapchat? What do you like about it? Let me know in the comments! You could even send me (heatherpls) a message on Snapchat and eventually I’d probably see it, haha.
