During the past year, I have picked up crocheting. I have always loved figuring out how to make things work and creating physical objects I can keep, so crocheting was a mixture of both. It was entertaining to figure out how the yarn and the hooks worked together to create plushies, pillows, and blankets.
My first ever crochet project was a book sleeve, which I created for one of my friends. It took me about a week to figure it out, but it was amusing. Once I finished, I felt incredibly proud of myself for being able to figure it out. I love decorating my room with my projects and gifting my creations to people I care about. Crocheting has become a way to express my appreciation for those who have helped me over the years.

Phones have become an integral part of our lives, serving as a means of communication and a source of entertainment. With the advent of smartphones, these devices have evolved into portable entertainment hubs that cater to our diverse interests and preferences.
One way phones entertain us is through social media platforms. These platforms allow us to connect with friends and family, share moments from our lives, and engage in discussions on various topics. The constant stream of updates and notifications keeps us engaged and entertained throughout the day. Phones offer a plethora of gaming options that cater to different tastes. There is something for everyone, from casual puzzle games to immersive role-playing adventures. Gaming apps provide an escape from reality and offer a chance to unwind and relax.

One thing that BeReal has given us is information on what people are doing in the moment. It gives us a way to see what people are doing all the time. Getting to react to people’s posts and comments if we feel like it. BeReal wasn’t created that long ago and yet it is very successful. BeReal can be a good and bad thing at the same time. It’s fun taking pictures of you or your friends and silly things happening but it can also get you caught with things. It can bring you closer or more involved with other people.
Bereal’s monthly active users are over 21.6 million, 2.93 million users use and or open the app, and 73.5 million people use BeReal at least once a month. BeReal had the highest downloads in 2022. BeReal is and has been doing really well. Like every other social media platform, you can still keep in contact with people. You can’t directly text someone on BeReal, and that’s what makes it different than others and might be the reason why it is successful. It’s just another great way to express yourself.
