It is one in the morning, and here I am wide awake. I am not exactly sure why. Perhaps it is because my fan is obnoxiously loud; or maybe it is because I know that I have a busy day tomorrow. Whatever the reason may be, sleep is currently not happening. Finally, after tossing and turning for hours, I grabbed a handful of Cheeze-its from the not so secret anymore box that I keep under my bed, and started to scroll through Facebook on my iPhone. As I was looking at my home feed, I noticed three things that really irritated me, and since I can not sleep, I thought I would share them with you.
First, I don’t understand why people feel the need to constantly post recipes. Now don’t get me wrong, I understand that every now and then something looks so delicious that you feel compelled to share it. Once in a while, fine, but when you post ten different recipes in a row, all you are doing is clogging up my newsfeed. I mean really, does anyone actually make the recipes, or do they just post them because they are on a diet, and seeing the food in the pictures somehow cures some craving? If someone actually made the recipe, and posted a picture, then I would probably be interested in it. But please, for the love of God, stop clogging up my newsfeed with pointless recipes no one is ever going to make!
Second, those stupid selfies that we all know you’re only posting to see how many “likes” you can get. Once again, once in a while, I get it, but everyday, come on. Have we really become so insecure with ourselves that we need others to constantly remind us through a social media site that we’re beautiful? What’s even worse, is when people
put cheesy, totally not related to the picture quotes underneath. “Reach for the stars and all your dreams will come true.” Yup, that quote totally relates to you sitting on a rock smiling. Please, post more. (sarcasm alert).
Lastly, and I can’t stress this one enough, too much personal info! I understand that you’re madly in love with your boyfriend, good for you, but really, nobody needs to know that you two are planning on spending the night at a motel. Lets keep the details of our sex lives to ourselves, shall we? There’s also the opposite of this, not enough info. So and so has a new status update, “I’m so upset.” Someone comments on the status, “So and so, why are you upset?” So and so replies, “I don’t want to talk about it.” Umm… then why did you post it on Facebook? If you are going to post something, give more information, because yes, I am a girl, and I am nosy.
I could probably come up with a few more things people do on Facebook that annoys me, but I will leave it at this. Now my eyes finally feel droopy, and I think if I tried I could probably fall asleep. Goodnight all. :-)
