Let’s Snap!

I’m sure you all know what Snapchat is. If you don’t, it is an app you can get on your phone that allows you to take a photo or a short, usually 10 second video, and send it to your friends. When they receive it, they can only view it once, and they only see if for up to that 10 second window, this includes the photos. And then they are gone forever-ish. There are ways to take screenshots, and other random things that can save the photos. At first I was very put off by the idea, and really didn’t want to get involved with any of it. A few of my friends had it and eventually talked me into trying it. I was hooked after a week of using it. Now I use it almost every day. Unfortunately, I use it more often that I use my camera. Which could be bad. I’ve taken a lot of cute photos with it, but those photos are not the best quality, and wouldn’t really be suitable prints.

But that’s okay, because we still have fun sharing our shenanigans with friends!

One of the best parts about this app is that it allows you to edit the photo in some fun ways. You can put filters on the photo, words, or even draw all over it if you want to!

And it’s really a very quick thing, which makes it a little easier to do on-the-go photos to family and friends.

You can even put faces on condiment bottles like I do!

I also use it to document the cute and adorable things little miss Collette does!

Like when she is looking through one of our Bio books (because she loves books!), and eating, because she’s cute when she eats.

Some of my ex-coworkers and I even use it to make fun of my friend/old boss (he was my friend first, and I have since quit my job at Dairy Queen) because he’s super macho-man at work, even though he’s a teddy bear on his days off.

It’s super easy to poke fun at him.

(the first photo is just so you can see his face)




Some of my friends and I even use Snapchat to tell short stories!

So, overall, Snapchat has become a bad habit. But, I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts. If you don’t have it, maybe you should try it out. Then again, maybe you’ll be strong enough to stay away from it.

Either way, good luck!
