hi im ali || i'm lame || hi or hey?
people get so caught up on one small thing they don’t like, like their nose or something
things like salt and baking powder go into a cake and those things are gross alone but the cake is pretty damn delicious
this is the best fucking thing I’ve ever read
someone on facebook posted something about social media being the least social things humans do, that we’re slaves to our screens, that it’s all fake, that we only share our good parts, and that we ignore all emotion
and now I am very upset
I met my best friends in the entire world through social media
and yeah, maybe I’m slightly more comfortable typing to someone than I am looking them in the face, but I probably wouldn’t talk to anyone if I didn’t have social media. I wouldn’t have anyone. honestly, I’m only friends with some of the people I hang out with irl because of the internet. so tell me again how social media makes me antisocial.
I don’t understand how any part of my online relationships with people is fake. does a screen stop my ability to communicate with another human being, especially if they love on the other side of the world and there really isn’t any other way I would be able to talk to them??
okay maybe sometimes I don’t show the worst parts of myself online. but that doesn’t make it less genuine. I wouldn’t share those parts of me with anyone. that doesn’t make my interactions with people impersonal. that means that I’m a human being, with feeling, and depth. that I’m not willing to just share my life story with everyone I come across.
social media is just as valid a way to communicate as any other. it is, as it’s name implies, a way to socialize. it’s not destroying the human race. it’s bringing us together in ways that used to be completely impossible and I don’t get why that’s so hard to understand and accept because it’s really not a difficult concept.
I’m laughing bc I haven’t been watching the apmas and I don’t really know what’s going on but apparently bvb won best fanbase???????
I hate how under-appreciated Ashton’s voice is.
have you ever been reading something and completely understood a line of foreshadowing and just whispered “crap”
