Braggarts

I am tempted to delete my facebook profile simply because the amount of people who brag about being good people is getting ridiculous.

This morning, someone posted, “I started my day off by paying it forward. What did you do?”

I wanted to write back, “Stumbled out of bed and went straight to work. Doesn’t make me any less of a person simply because I didn’t buy coffee for the person in the car behind me, etc etc,”

Or simply, “Braggart.”

Isn’t the point of paying it forward to NOT talk about it? If you go and tell the world what a wonderful thing you did, it seems to me the only reason you did that wonderful thing was for self-validation and to make people think more of you.

Which makes me think less of you.

Do it because you WANT to, not because you can go tell everyone.

Well, shit. I’m back.

Since I deactivated my facebook account and only use my tumblr for short text posts and lots of picture reblogging, I think I should rejoin the world of wordpress. Yes?

The REASONS I no longer have facebook are as follows:

– dudes I barely knew in HIGH SCHOOL decide to add me, I accept, then receive messages at 1:20 am like “Are you awake?” and then, mere hours later, “Good morning.”  Add in the fact that he’s friends with someone I actually had to block, and you get a problem.

– people putting things like “OMG life is so hard and terrible and I hate it.  Don’t ask, it’s personal.” Oh yeah? Then why the fuck did you put it on the internet to begin with?!?!

– people posting political-HOLY SHIT I JUST REALIZED I STILL HAVE A “MYSPACE” CATEGORY ON HERE. WTF?

*AHEM*

– people posting political rants, anti-president rants, etc. These are usually the same people who either “did not have time” to vote, or spend zero time looking into issues and trying to do something about them.

– my mother making a comment about almost everything I post. Especially if it involves cursing. Shit hell damn fuck, I’m almost 34 years old, okay?

– in the same vein, people thinking “she’s a horrible Christian” if i post something along those lines. I’m pretty sure Jesus isn’t condemning me to hell for saying “dickhead.”

I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea.
