What’s different is how they’ve used the social media aspects. This is not a facebook page about the movie. It is not a twitter feed about the movie. The tumblr is not about the movie. It’s all about Ted. It’s Ted’s facebook, Ted’s twitter, Ted’s tumblr.
Makes it all the more interesting and engaging. Makes me REALLY want to see the movie to see what kinda hilarious madness Ted could get up to.
You may not put stock in physical design — in beauty — but a care for the way these products are designed and built has repercussions beyond just the look and feel of a device. Apple has had to rework and rethink the guts of its products to match ambitious designs, driving down part sizes, creating new manufacturing methods and dreaming up all kinds of new ways to do old things.
I think it’s time for the industry to wake up to design. To wake up to beauty in form and function.
A sane, healthy, complete person does not ‘need’ anyone to do anything for them. They are able to feed, protect, shelter, care for and love themselves by themselves.
Someone that seeks a relationship to ‘fill a need’ tries to find outside themselves something to fix themselves.
A relationship should be somewhat of a luxury, something that is great to have but without which the existence of the person is not in danger. A ‘need’ is something necessary for the survival (physical, mental, emotional) of the person.
I want to walk toward a relationship with the knowledge that with or without the person(s) I am, always, complete.
I want to walk toward a relationship not from a need but from a grateful point of view, not from the ‘please fill my needs’ standpoint that soon becomes a place where people think those things are ‘due’ to them, but from the point where I can say, each and every day, “Thank you for those marvelous surprises you brought into my life. You didn’t have to, but you made the choice to and I am very grateful that I am the person you choose to give to.”
I want to walk around this world handing out the gift of my love to whomever I feel like loving.
I do not say that when you walk the path of relationship there is no point where one can have the need of getting help from the other, from the moment the relationship is solid and the “team” of individuals is built, they should both be able to count on each other in time of need. But the two individuals should still be able to, most of the time, stand for themselves AND stand for the team.
That feeling that I’ve never once managed to articulate in such a simple and concise form when I’m calling it quits in a relationship - this is it.
I don’t want to be in a position where I feel like if I were to leave now, the other person would fall apart. I’m done with that. If I feel my leaving would break you, I WILL LEAVE. I can barely hold myself together as a single entity, how am i suppose to function trying to take care of someone else?
I want to have the freedom to find out who I am, before I wind up getting locked down in a place where I’m not going to be content.
I want the freedom to do things because I want to, not because I have to.
