Recently I’ve installed SnapChat and Instagram onto my iPhone. Admittedly, that probably wasn’t the best idea… Then again, hindsight is always 20/20.
I did not anticipate for it to make me one of those people, you know, the ones who take pictures of themselves making faces, or the ones who take pictures while posing in the mirror. I especially did not expect myself to be one of those people to take pictures of her food! Although, in my defense… the food thing rarely occurs because my first thought is to eat it, not post it online.
But alas, that is the fate of joining in on such trends. I should have known that it was inevitable to fall into the same traps as all the other people that use these apps. In fact, I generally don’t even take pictures or videos… it’s not my style… at least it wasn’t.
I don’t know how exactly I feel about the change in my actions. I’m not sorely disappointed… just more surprised than anything. Well, that’s a lie. I’m slightly disappointed because I’m turning into the type of person that I usually acknowledge with disdain. Oh well… at least I don’t hashtag inappropriately on websites that don’t support it as a feature (Instagram on Facebook should be voided simply because it was not intended for Facebook in the first place).
