What GoT Would Be Like if the Characters Used Social Media

What GoT Would Be Like if the Characters Used Social Media

Just the mere mention of Game of Thrones (GoT), one of the biggest shows in TV history, sends people into a frenzy. Everyone has an opinion, including the people who don’t watch it. Yes, GoT is that good.

Imagine what GoT would be like in 2017. What would the fictional characters have to say if they could use social media? Let’s face it: secretly, we all want to be riding under a banner trying desperately to claim the throne.

Dressed in medieval garb and sporting trendy hairstyles, men all over the world would be vying for a chance to marry Daenerys Targaryen. And, who wouldn’t? She makes Kim Kardashian seem rather ordinary. Not to mention, she is the mother of dragons. Dragons, people.

Let’s face it, sending a message by social media sure beats trudging through the snow for years being chased by angry dead people.

How would GoT characters fare if they had access to social media?

Sansa Stark

Sansa was quite shallow at the beginning of the show. She was concerned only with her social status and beauty.

Think Mean Girls meets Westeros. There is no doubt that her Twitter feed would consist of teenage crushes and disdain at her brother’s inability to listen to her advice.

Something like, “OMG Anthony Weiner just texted me! Why do I always pick the worst guys?” or “Ugh, Jon sucks! I saved his ass and now he’s crowned King of the North. Hopefully, Baelish’s offer still stands…I am not going back there.”

Jon Snow

Jon’s constant need to do the right thing has made him a fan favorite. In fact, they won’t let him die. But then, he is a bit “doom-and-gloom” at times, and he takes everything too seriously.

Jon’s tweets are likely to state what dire straits we are all in. “Trump is President, the UK has abandoned Europe, Russia is hacking the Net, and Winter is here.”

He’ll be sure to include some self-deprecating comments about what the right thing to do next will be. “Yes, I defeated Bolton and I am King of the North. Anyone else would’ve done the same thing. No time to celebrate, I’ve got to go build a wall, find Hilary and lock her up. Once I am King, I will make it all great again.”

Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion’s wit is well known in Westeros, along with his admiration of women. You can always count on him to find humor in any situation and to always have his mind in the gutter. His tweets are bound to be funny, sexy and mocking. “Cersei has just had a MASSIVE tantrum and trashed the place. Jaime has been neglecting her again. She’s just discovered I’ve pinched all her wine and signed her up for an assertiveness gig on coachingjobs.com.”

Cersei Lannister

Cersei is a harsh, vengeful character. She has strong feelings of hatred for most people around her. In contrast, she does care about the people she loves fiercely. There is no middle ground where her emotions are.

Her feed would verge on the inappropriate. Rants about incompetence would be common. “Why, oh why must I be surrounded by idiots? The next time I hear something stupid I’m going to burn this place to the ground!” This along with something a bit suggestive without being too full on – “Hey bro, what you up to tonight? Want to Netflix and chill with me?” Whatever she’s tweeting, she is not the person you want to enter into a Twitter war with. She’ll tear you down with her words or come after you in real life to exact her revenge!

But, then again, she has not met Lady Mormont. Now that would be a Twitter battle for the ages.

If this sounds all too familiar, it should. After all, life imitates art. Perhaps that is why everyone seems to love this show so much. We see too much of ourselves in these characters. Imagine how other famous people shape who we are and who will become. GoT help us all!

10 Things Happy People Do Differently

10 Things Happy People Do Differently

Think being happy is something that happens as a result of luck, circumstance, having money, etc.? Think again.

Happiness is a mindset. And if you’re looking to improve your ability to find happiness, then check out these 10 things happy people do differently.

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. -Dalai Lama

1. Happy people find balance in their lives.

Folks who are happy have this in common: they’re content with what they have, and don’t waste a whole lot of time worrying and stressing over things they don’t. Unhappy people do the opposite: they spend too much time thinking about what they don’t have. Happy people lead balanced lives. This means they make time for all the things that are important to them, whether it’s family, friends, career, health, religion, etc.

2. Happy people abide by the golden rule.

You know that saying you heard when you were a kid, “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.” Well, happy people truly embody this principle. They treat others with respect. They’re sensitive to the thoughts and feelings of other people. They’re compassionate. And they get treated this way (most of the time) in return.

3. Happy people don’t sweat the small stuff.

One of the biggest things happy people do differently compared to unhappy people is they let stuff go. Bad things happen to good people sometimes. Happy people realize this, are able to take things in stride, and move on. Unhappy people tend to dwell on minor inconveniences and issues, which can perpetuate feelings of sadness, guilt, resentment, greed, and anger.

4. Happy people take responsibility for their actions.

Happy people aren’t perfect, and they’re well aware of that. When they screw up, they admit it. They recognize their faults and work to improve on them. Unhappy people tend to blame others and always find an excuse why things aren’t going their way. Happy people, on the other hand, live by the mantra:

“There are two types of people in the world: those that do and those that make excuses why they don’t.”

5. Happy people surround themselves with other happy people.

    One defining characteristic of happy people is they tend to hang out with other happy people. Misery loves company, and unhappy people gravitate toward others who share their negative sentiments. If you’re struggling with a bout of sadness, depression, worry, or anger, spend more time with your happiest friends or family members. Chances are, you’ll find that their positive attitude rubs off on you.

    6. Happy people are honest with themselves and others.

    People who are happy often exhibit the virtues of honesty and trustworthiness. They would rather give you candid feedback, even when the truth hurts, and they expect the same in return. Happy people respect people who give them an honest opinion.

    7. Happy people show signs of happiness.

    smile

      This one may sound obvious but it’s a key differentiator between happy and unhappy people. Think about your happiest friends. Chances are, the mental image you form is of them smiling, laughing, and appearing genuinely happy. On the flip side, those who aren’t happy tend to look the part. Their posture may be slouched and you may perceive a lack of confidence.

      8. Happy people are passionate.

      Another thing happy people have in common is their ability to find their passions in life and pursue those passions to the fullest. Happy people have found what they’re looking for, and they spend their time doing what they love.

      9. Happy people see challenges as opportunities.

      Folks who are happy accept challenges and use them as opportunities to learn and grow. They turn negatives into positives and make the best out of seemingly bad situations. They don’t dwell on things that are out of their control; rather, they seek solutions and creative ways of overcoming obstacles.

      10. Happy people live in the present.

      While unhappy people tend to dwell on the past and worry about the future, happy people live in the moment. They are grateful for “the now” and focus their efforts on living life to the fullest in the present. Their philosophy is:

      There’s a reason it’s called “the present.” Because life is a gift.

      So if you’d like to bring a little more happiness into your life, think about the 10 principles above and how you can use them to make yourself better.
