Rough weekend getting over the plague, but I did have some time to reflect. I am about to go to a place that we all want to talk about, but just never make the time to really hit on these sensitive subjects.
A vast majority of people do not know that I either have kept or deleted them from my Facebook, Instagram , or any other social media platform for the shits and giggles I get from their outrageousness. You know those people who are just so full of themselves (I can be guilty at times of this), post certain status updates for attention, and let’s not even get started with the pictures you are graced with on a daily basis.
Throughout all of the social media platforms that I have utilized in 2013, I have compiled a list of things I could live without in 2014. Will they stop? Probably not. Will I lose my mind every time I see them? Probably.
Oh the infamous outfit of the day….this irks me because it’s a glorified attention seeking selfie. PLEASE TELL ME HOW AMAZING THIS OUTFIT LOOKS. Unless you are a fashion blogger or have a decent place to take a picture, please refrain from this horrid behavior. A few people have made honest efforts, while others need a serious intervention. I would rather not see your bedroom or even worse your work bathroom as you pose to show off this fantastic daily look of yours. Do us all a solid and just stop while you are still ahead. Your personal validation that morning in the mirror is enough!
Excuse me? Where did this come from? I actually had to take the time to look this one up on Urban Dictionary to understand what it was referring to. Is it that hard to refer to your significant other by their name? I never thought that baby or babe could be shortened even more, but I was proven wrong.
Let me use this term in a sentence for you. “My bae is so sweet, I love him so much.”
Mind you, that is use with correct grammar and punctuation. Just stop it now, unless you are run cookingforbae instagram. Thanks for the laughs and close calls of vomiting.
Before twerking, it was booty popping. This is not a new trend kids. Nor is it cute anymore. Miley dressed up in a unicorn onesie twerking was intriguing and then she went to far with grinding on any and everything that crossed her booty’s path. The videos are getting exhausting and a few of you really don’t know what you are doing. There, I said it. Please leave twerking alone. Let’s abandon this fad and bring back the hustle!
4. Team Apple vs. Team Android
This one baffles me, because why the hell does it matter?!? Why does this hashtag even exists? Are you going to stop texting someone because they have an iPhone or a Galaxy S4? Also, when did you become a salesperson for the iPhone, the Galaxy S4, or any other phone for that matter? Really?!?! Leave that shit to the pros at the provider stores. Nobody needs the sneers and jeers that they would NEVER go back to Apple or my iPhone is so fast. If you really think about it, it’s just a phone – nothing more. (Oh, but how about dem apples when Beyonce dropped her secret album and it was only available on iTunes – but you all were like DAMN let me download iTunes!)
5. New Year, New Me
We hear it every year, the same old tune (usually from the same old people). This is going to be a new year and it’s time for a new me. Excuse me sweetheart, if you didn’t discover yourself in the last 365 days what makes you think this next 365 will help at all. I am all for self-improvement, but every year with the same old swan song gets kind of old. Challenge yourself and make something happen. Don’t keep falling back on the same page that you keep erasing and starting over on. There is a bigger and better world out there for you to actually attempt to achieve something in. So before the new year gets here, please be thinking of your new motto for 2014.
If you have committed any of the following annoyances above, it’s ok – you are not the only one. Please understand that I either shook my head in disappointment or laughed at the ridiculousness of this behavior. Here’s to 2014!
