I think life is full of teachable moments, for other people. I like to teach everyone patience, in a city where we’re all rushing around, sometimes it nice to know that there are moments when you can take a moment to breathe and not try to shove me out of the way when I’m getting off the train. This morning I elbowed a girl in the head (accidentally) because she was trying to push...

evanwatkinssocialmedia: Try as you might, you just can’t seem to get your target audience to engage. What now? Working in the education sector, and a niche section of the education sector at that, it can sometimes be hard to connect to your target audience via social networks or email. So what now? A few things I have…
KPARTYAWESOME: One time →
kpartyawesome: I was watching a Lifetime movie with my mom (I was like 13) and that woman who plays the mom in Poltergeist was in it. JoBeth Williams! That was her name. So JoBeth Williams starts hitting on a married man, even though she’s the main character, who I subconsciously knew I was supposed to like and… LMAO! I can’t. Please follow Kathy here and on twitter at...
Social Media You Can Use: On Twitter . . . →
evanwatkinssocialmedia: A lot of people are asking themselves: “So what is twitter and why is it so essential for me to be a part of it?” Well besides the fact that all your friends are doing it and you succumb to peer pressure easily, it’s where people are talking about you and your brand, if you listen. I recently… On engaging and listening on Twitter
06.20.2012 CBS ANNOUNCES DEVELOPMENT OF “DANCING ON THE STARS,” AN EXCITING AND...– a real(!) press release that CBS just issued This is so awesomely weird. CBS is pissed off at ABC for stealing a reality show concept, so they issued this piece of insanity. I can’t stop laughing. (via jonbershad) Well played, CBS. Well played. (via chrisreblogs)

evanwatkinssocialmedia: First off, I would like to welcome you all to my blog, and I’ll start by telling you a little bit about my background and experience in social media. After graduating from Oregon State University in 2005, I toiled around in Oregon before moving to New York City in August of 2006, since then I… I started a blog about harnessing the power of social media for your...
I am at work. Chris is at my apartment.
me: you're awake!
Christopher: I am!
Christopher: Right when I wrote "I am!", the doorbell rang. You sneak. Confused the hell out of me. You are awesome.
me: Wait. What?
me: oh my god
me: oh my god.
me: I am dying.
me: I am NOT awesome.
me: I meant to order myself breakfast.

kramediggles: Three Thanksgiving’s ago my dad made a deep-fried turkey and ended up with a bucket of fat that he didn’t know what to do with. I had just topped off a half gallon of Pistachio ice cream (even though I HATE pistachio) so I offered him the empty container to pour the fat into while we decided what…
Here’s the first draft of my screenplay called You’re From the Street, I’m a Trained Dancer, We Shouldn’t Get Along, But We’ll Make It Work John: Hey, you look pretty Mel: Thanks, you’re hot and obviously have some baggage from being a latch-key kid. John: You don’t know me (music starts to swell in the background) oh man, that’s my jam, whenever...
SHIT I CAN'T MAKE UP: Convo between my 7year-old...
(Names have been altered slightly, just in case.)
Josie: I have a new crusshhhhh
Matt: Me too! On a boy!
Pearl: You're a boy with a crush on a boy?
Matt: Yeah he's really cute.
(pause for a bit)
Matt: Boys can like boys. I just can't marry him because boys can't marry boys.
Me: Yeah they can. You can marry whoever you want.
Josie: YEAH my tia has a wife so now I have a titi and a auntie.
Matt: Okay. Then maybe I'll marry him.
Dave: (from across the room) No you can't you're seven.
(Age was apparently the only foreseeable problem anyone of my elementary schoolers could see with gay marriage. I almost cried out of happiness. Later, when I was asked if boys could kiss anyone they wanted, I replied "only if they want to kiss you back." And Josie responded "Yeah! Your body your life.")
My students are the shit.

jakisbrain: For evanwatkins : As I find my way through the Florida muck I am reminded of what led me to this. I once was a high-ranking assistant to a glorified, commercial actress; jet-setting to exotic locals and tasting the most exquisite cuisine. Now I must plow through alligator carcasses and…
careyodonnell: I forgot to stop the stopwatch on my iPhone a while back. I just looked at it, and it’s been going for almost 847 hours. I think I’m going to leave it so I can occasionally check and remember that time is terrifying.
Twitter Customer Service
Just had an awesome experience with Bonobos customer service via twitter. Let me just preface this by saying, I hate shopping for clothes, I am weird and gangly and too tall, and I have a hard time finding clothes that fit me correctly. With that in mind I have been looking for another pair of colored pants, I just bought a pair at the GAP but wanted another pair in a different color than the...
