disclaimer: while this happened a while ago, i thought it was necessary to post mainly because this might be the STUPIDEST thing i’ve ever done… what’s the saying? if you can’t laugh at yourself then life’s going to seem really long? whatever. you know what i’m trying to say. i’m an idiot.
i would give anything to go back in time, maybe the late 50s?… no. 60s? NO! 70s!!! a time where wearing the same dress four times to four different weddings wouldn’t be documented or even noticed. where you could take a picture without fear that it would make your arms look fat or your ass look huge. before meaningless status updates and narcissistic ‘humble brags’ about working out so hard you puked or whooo! finally at the beach with a picture of your toes in the sand [guilty] or yes! you got a promotion and now are making $84953847539.97 dollars more than me… you go. :/ take me back to a time before the internet. please?
now don’t get me wrong. it’s OBVIOUS that i love technology. ie my iphone. i’m not one hundred percent sure what i would do with out it, but just the near thought of it has me broken out with shingles. we all know i do other things beside check my phone for new notifications, bank account status, twitter updates, instagram pics etc… every two seconds, but it’s just important to note i love social media and most importantly, my iphone… just keep this in mind i as i share with you THE MOST HUMILIATING thing i’ve ever, ever, ever, ever done. and it has everything to do with facebook.
i was just doing a little
stalking investigating the other day [but really i have NO CLUE how/when this happened]. no one was EVER to find out… i just wanted a little insight on the love of my life and old flame’s life. you know just to see how/who he was doing… obviously i going straight to the source, just seeing what i could get out of what limited profiles could share. [people. you’d be surprised about what i’ve been able to figure out via facebook! it’s scary.] anyway. i somehow did the UNTHINKABLE. i found out today after i failed my chemistry test and got a parking ticket… that… yall ready for this? I FRIENDED MY EX BOYFRIEND’S GIRLFRIEND BECAUSE I HAD A NOTIFICATION THAT SHE ACCEPTED IT!!!!!!!!! WHAT?! WHO DOES THAT?!!!!! i told you it was bad. i’m still COMPLETELY MORTIFIED. i mean what dignity is there left after something like this? not only am i publicly outing myself about this.. because let’s face it, i deserve it, but i remedied this total nightmare the only rational way i could. i deactivated asap and will never look back [until next week]. i’d been looking for a reason to get off facebook but shit!, i didn’t think it would come to this level of insanity to actually do it! it’s done. deactivated for life [aka a week].
let this be a little lesson to all you facebook addicts out there… GET OUT WHILE YOU STILL CAN. don’t fall victim to humiliation via technology. and if you feel that you must continue your ‘investigating’, for the love of all that is good and holy, STAY AWAY FROM YOUR EX’S NEW PERSON!
