DAY 9 II: GET YOUR FACE OUT OF MY FACEbook

Annoying things on Facebook:

Posting a whole album of baby pictures.

It’s weird. When I see people from high-school post photos of their kids, I hide their posts and unfollow them. If they have more than 3 uploaded at once, that’s just too much already. I’ve had one guy post 30 photos into ONE ALBUM I KID YOU NOT. Come on now, they’re your kids—not mine. I’m not even an in-law. Those are annoying. But, here’s the weird part. If they’re from my grade school friends, I don’t mind it at all. I think it’s becuase they were my best friends. We had sleep overs, our parents were close, and we had field trips together… so, maybe that’s why I don’t mind it as much. I can’t believe we’re already “adults”. It went by so fast. When we were young, in Middle School, we lived like that was our world and nothing else mattered but our world—like we were never going to get old and nothing was ever going to change. Then, one day, it was just the last day of school… and then everything changed. Now, we’re here. On Facebook.

  1. Daily Selfies

Sweet mother of—really. Seriously. NO. You’re female. I’M FEMALE. You’re straight. I’M STRAIGHT. Your tits. Your face. Can get out of my FACEbook. I unfollow them and I also unfriend them. It doesn’t really matter anymore. They need to do this on Instagram or find a different medium. Either way, Facebook’s dead anyway. Or, either way, I don’t really care, but I don’t want to see another vain person on MY newsfeed.

  1. Provocative Sharing with random idiots trying to be heroes

Okay, enough with the duct tape over the dog. It’s all over Facebook. I get it. And, I’m annoyed that a dog friendly fan page kept posting it with the image of the dog with duct tape on him. What am I going to do? Save him? I can’t do SHIT. I already have PTSD and I cry every time a dog gets killed in a movie (which I think is a cheap shot for a writer to do). What the hell am I going to do with that? And, to top it off, you have that one idiot who comments and says, “We shouldn’t be worried about this when there are people in the world that are struggling with… [insert struggle here]…” WELL, DUH. He’s right, but he’s in the wrong THREAD. I’m not even going to go there. There is struggle everywhere, but there is also SUCCESS everywhere, too. It just depends where you want to respond to. IDIOTS.

  1. FAN –ATICS

Stop it. You’re not a quarterback. You’re a fan. Yes, you’re a 12, but for fuck’s sakes, you’re not a football player, so stop gloating and showboating like you are one. This is why I don’t say anything or post anything about the Seahawks on my Facebook anymore. It’s fucking annoying. It’s like an assload of bandwagons everywhere. Plus, there is more than just football in life. And, it’s okay to be crazy fans, giving loyalty and showing support for your team, but there’s no need to be brutes about it. You just look… dumb. Like, plain dumb.

  1. Self-flattering Posts

I am this, I am that, therefore, I’m AMAZING. The before and after photos. OMG… Get oooooover yourself. SEEERIOUSLY. Go drink your smoothies, take your before and after, and shove it up your ass. Like me, like me, like me, like me… ugh. The only before and after that I would like to see is the unseen, and it is unfortunate that the ones I see on Facebook are shallow, pretentious and oh what’s this? Unfriend? Oh cool beans. /rant.

 

And remember, … RISE, like I did here. I unfollowed. Now, that’s rising. Ha.

I am currently doing a 365 day challenge of listening to my favorite motivational speaker. I will be listening/reading to Les Brown for the next 365 days and then blogging about my self-improvement of all different aspects of my life called the well-rounded wheel: health, financial, mental, spiritual, intellectual, family, social, etc. I will use this to self-reflect for my growth in self-improvement. This blog is for my 5-year plan. I started this in 2015, August on my Birthday because I’ve realized that time just keep passing by and doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the same results has finally sunk into my brain that I was one of them thinking that I would get different results. That stopped on my Birthday last year. Now, I do check-ins during New Year’s Eve/Day which I just did my first one 2 nights ago. I like doing mine on my Birthday because it’s for me AND doing New Year’s resolution puts too much pressure on people and if they break it, they beat themselves up, lose their drive and just give up. I’ve come to realize that what works for me is working on myself for myself on my Birthday and then just doing check-ins New Year’s Eve/Day and this keeps me focused and motivated. 1 year is not enough. You need big goals, like 5 years and let 1 year be a milestone. (More on that on my blogs). I have broken down my dreams into goals and plans. I allocated them into smaller goals and plans and put them into SMART goals plans: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-sensitive, because, c’mon….dreams don’t come true UNTIL you write them down into action plans, and hence, this site is born for MY OWN DREAMS. There will be inspirational quotes, inspirational articles with my take on them, and plenty other resources of inspirational/motivational everything and everyone that I can think of to assist in my personal growth and all aspects of my life. And, most importantly… it’s my place to write about whatever I want to write about and anything that interests me, so this is also a hobby for myself. So, welcome, come along the journey ride and watch me grow or you can tag along and grow with me. Happy New Year! My 2016 is amazing so far!! :) It’s also a place for me to just… grow and express my creativity and learn about myself.
