It isn’t often I do this…

Use the blog to air personal concerns, that is. But this is something that’s been bugging me for a while, now. It’s sort of an accumulated frustration which needs to be excised, so let’s do this sh*t.
I’m finding that I really love the time I live in for all the numerous technological advances and whatnot, but at the same time I quite hate it, as well. We’re constantly being driven to interact mindlessly with other people who we may not even like or know, just because we’re expected to. The whole thing is so fake it leaves the taste of spray tan in my mouth. All of our little networks keep us tethered to elements of our past that a lot of us would be better off without. Don’t get me wrong. I believe in karma and all that jazz and that everything’s a lesson and people are here to help you along on those lessons, for better or worse, but STILL. Lessons in school are learned, processed and then overwritten by the next wave of lessons. That’s just life. Why do we, as a society, feel so compelled to hold on…even to the insignificant? Does the hypocrisy of social networking really undo all the wrong that high school bully did you? And why have they been so conditioned to think that it has? And why have we been conditioned to just gloss over it? Um, no. If I were to do that, you’d just find justification in your own stupidity and encourage whatever misbegotten spawn you eventually hatch to follow in your same, misguided footsteps. People need to know there’re consequences for being douchebags, for hurting people, for bashing them, for irritating them. You know what else is irritating? Zits. And what do you do when you get one of those? You don’t accept them.
You pop them, of course. ^_^
So seriously guys, don’t let yourselves fall into the trap of “one, big, hypocritical FB (or whatever social network you use) family.” Don’t hold on to people who could care less whether you live or die. The people who do…hold on to them like gold!! Because they are.
I’M THE LADY-IN-WAITING…AND I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE!
