Guilty Pleasure – TicTok Edition

Hi Gals,

I know it’s been a while and I’m happy to report I am no longer single. I’ve actually been in a relationship for over 7.5 years, which in my world is a lifetime. With all the craziness in the world and being off and on with quarantine as well as living in a 1 bedroom condo with my boyfriend you need to find little guilty pleasures that you can enjoy, and which keep you sane.

People have a love, hate with social media as do I, and it’s not like I subscribe to all forms of social media, for example I don’t have Facebook, but I’ve found a guilty pleasure in TikTok. I don’t even remember why I downloaded the app, maybe I liked the idea that you don’t have to have an account to be a Tiktokker, meaning no subscription is needed. You just get the app and easily scroll through random people’s accounts and see what they are up to or what’s on their minds.

The appeal of TikTok.

  1. You hear songs you may or may not know but also see dances that people have created for them.
    1. In my head I can and do the dances flawlessly so I’m an expert.
  2. I assume the algorithm is different if you’ve logged in but whatever they are using I do see find people on repeat who appeal to me.

It’s my guilty pleasure and aside from ruining some songs for Francesco – sorry “Tricky” and RunDMC it provides me a nice little break.

The funny thing about this platform is that I see people saying parents or people over 40 etc… shouldn’t be on it. Well I’m a puppy parent and over 40 so screw you, plus my mom is addicted and I find this amazing because she is in her mid-70’s. I tried to see what she gets on her feed but she wouldn’t let me, but I did joke with her that I want to see her TikTok dance the next time I visited.

Anyways this isn’t an ad and I’m not telling you to sign-up to Tiktok just letting you know that this is something I’ve embraced which has brought smiles to my face and kept me in the know with music.
