I’m one of those people who procrastinates. And when I find myself distracted, it’s usually because of social media. One task that I had in the back of my mind was getting a passport for the little guy. I was one of those parents who proudly said, “I’m going to get him a passport the day we get home from the hospital”. Nope, never happened.
Yesterday, as I was browsing my twitter feed, I responded to a tweet. Even though I already knew the process of applying for passports, I wanted to see if things had possibly changed from 7 years ago when I renewed mine.
Within minutes, I had an answer, and the magical word was “online“. Somehow seeing the convenient option to now apply for a passport online instantly got my butt in gear. It took a whole 6 minutes for me to complete the application, print it, and see a breakdown of the fee.
The next part is getting the 2×2 photo and going as a family to process the application. Of course, I wanted to be extra prepared for whatever travels come our way, so I naturally opted for the 52 page book… ;)
It’s so funny that a simple tweet motivated me to get moving. Has something like this happened to you before? Ever got sometime done because of a little bit of social media motivation?
