Do you like spending time on your phone, the instant gratification our technological society requires, and rapping? Well, I have news for you. A new social media app is on the rise and that app is Rapchat. Don’t confuse the trending download with its counterpart Snapchat; however, if you’re a fan, Rapchat will not disappoint.
Rapchat allows its users to spit fresh freestyles and share them with all their friends. It’s simple: select friends to send it to, choose a sick beat, rap like a pro for a few seconds, hit send and boom. Your self-made rapping career is on its way.
It seems that every time I turn around a new app is stealing the attention of young adults. Whether it’s Yik Yak, Twitter, or Instagram, we’re constantly scrolling, taking in everything except our surroundings.
It’s good to stay connected with our friends through pictures, posts, and messages. Still, this continuous contact may be cutting off our single most important connection—the connection we have with ourselves.
Perhaps, the next time you find yourself aimlessly searching through the lives of others and sending ultimately meaningless selfies take a second to reflect upon yourself and your surroundings.
Be comfortable without the interaction of others. Be comfortable with yourself. It’s okay to simply be rather than do.
