Again, I am avoiding my course work because I am a terrible student. The thoughts that are in my mind right now relate to facebook and school (sorry Classics, you’re back of the brain).
When I procrastinate, I go on facebook. I’m not a massive facebook addict (I’m stupidly proud of how little activity there is on my page) but when you’re bored, it’s a good go-to site. And during my most recent skimming, I came to the conclusion that I am SO SO GLAD that I am not at school anymore. Or rather, that I am not a 13 year old girl anymore.
13 was a shitty age. I’m pretty sure it was for everyone. You’re at that stage where you’re slightly grown up so you think you’re ~so sophisticated, when in reality you’re still a child, still annoying, and have an undeserved sense of entitlement*.
I’m still facebook friends with people who are still at school and who will be there for several more years (lol sucks to be them). All the time, they’re adding new photos of them either duck facing or cam-whoring**. I’m all for doing what you want rather than what other people want you to do, but HONESTLY. Is it really necessary to take 30 pictures of you and your friends that only differ because of slight angle changes? Another pet peeve is when those photos are clearly taken on PhotoBooth and the parties involved act like it’s so new and inventive to take Warhol-style pictures and that the fish eye tool is so funny.
(It’s really not.)
I think really what I’m trying to say is that I would never upload crazy amounts of self indulgent photos that rate about a .07 on the originality scale***. And that, even though uni is so much harder and a total time-leech, I’m so glad to leave school behind.
*Or something along those lines. This post clearly is a procrastination method rather than a brilliantly written piece of wonderment.
**For anyone who doesn’t know, I use the term “cam-whoring” to mean “taking a shitload of pictures of yourself looking ‘hot’ or ‘cute’, generally in the hopes that your innumerable facebook friends will like said photos and comment ‘omq ur so hawt’!”
***Scale runs from 0-1000, with 0 being “clone” and 1000 being so unique you make hipsters cry with jealousy.
