foursquare: it’s time to have “the talk”

Dear Foursquare,

I’ve gotta gett his off my chest, so here it is…

I’ve been having mixed feelings about our replationship recently. I’ve started feeling a bit crowded.  I need some space. I don’t want everyone knowing where I am all the time. You know how much I love you and I really  like what you do.

It’s not you, it’s me

I don’t wanna break up, I just need some space.  I want the mystery back in  our relationship.  I want things more like they used to be.

We have so many great memories and you’re always bringing me closer to my friends (Twestival, Foursqaure Day, Earthquake/Superswarm, Karaoke, NXNE). I still want more of that.

It’s the little things, the little checkins all the time here and there, it’s getting to be too much. I’m taking back the pants.

Please no hard feelings. Remember when I made that awesome shirt for your birthday?

I’ll checkin at work tomorrow.  Love you.

mashable social media day :: toronto

I like social and media. And I like talking. Pix frm the event are here via Kevin Chung. Here’s my talk, I hope you enjoy it.

Casie Stewart (@casiestewart) at #SMdayTO from Ron Wolf

I like talking about how many awesome people I have met through twitter. How I got a job because I really loved the internet, being social and sharing creativity all over the place. I like landscape photos better than portrait. I like when the sun shines through the clouds and you can see it coming right at you. I like writing the stories as they happen and living out all kinda of adventures. I like being positive, it’s really the best medicine you can give yourself.

I’ve always liked to write. In 1996 my friend Holly and I, with the help of our Mum’s publihed and anthology of poetry & prose called JEANS. It was all kinds of things we had written in Grade. 8. I wanna publish a new book. I have hundreds written verse and such just dying to have your eyes. Words all wanting attention. I’ve decided to hire and intern, I need some help with the casiestewart.com stuff. Looking for someone unique, someone kinda like me to be honest; loves internet, learning, sharing, twitter, hard work, fun. There’s always skill involved but the things that really matter most are not learned in class.

What I think (1996)

I’d like to do more public speaking. I like it and I’m just getting started. I won in a speech competition about a hundred years ago when I was younger. This one time, in drama class, I read my whole speech with my back facing the audience, it was the speech you tell youself before you go on stage. The two minute “you can do this, you are prepared, review key points ,come on just get out there and go, you are awesome”. Then, as I finished I turned around smiled at the audience and introduced myself. I loved that one.

the internet is a funny place

I was watching Jeopardy like I do pretty much every night I can. I saw this babe with a bowtie named J.R. so I tweeted it. Tweeting shows is one of my favorite things. It makes watching TV more intertaining and interactive. I do alot of work on the computer so it feels like I’m spending time with friends, which I am.

I checked the hashtag and relized I wasn’t the only one noticing. Googled him naturally, found an article. Read the comments and… there he was. A second article posted today. He’s a Nashville Scenester with a signature bowtie.

I also just notied this, heh heh. The Show premieres tonight. I’ve watched the first three episodes, it’s funny and…sexual.

you can’t just ask a website why it’s black, y’know?

This is me today. Grey hair, glasses, Dr. Martens, tan, smile.

I just went to Mc Donalds for lunch.  It was tasty as usual, I know it’s bad for me but I like it and i’ve been eating the stuff my whole life and it’s still not “caught up to me”. Life is short, do what makes you happy, eh!

The stage is getting set up at work for the MMVA show June 20th. I’m pretty stoked that I’m the Twitter person, it’s the most fun job I reckon. Karrera is coming over tonight. She moved out West in Jan and we’ve been friends since we were kids so it’s pretty exciting.

Today when I logged into Tumblr I was like WTF, YOU ARE BLACK NOW? Not that there’s anything wrong with it, I would have said the same thing is it was any colour. The reason Tumblr is black is they are requesting & matching donations for Safe Our Gulf. I get to frustrated watching stuff about the oil spill. So sad really.

Ok, that’s all for now! MUAH! xoxo
