Okay guys let’s be real for a sec. I wrote a long ass caption not once, but FOUR TIMES for this thing + I rambled on + on about Instagram. I basically wrote about how nowadays we feel more obligated to post than we feel actually inspired to share. + honestly, writing captions stresses me tf out. Anyone else?! 🙋♀️
So yeah, it was all about Instagram + how weird it is. Blah, blah, blah. + how these beautiful photos @lebultema shot of me that I edited, although they’re gorgeous + I LOVE them, they aren’t really what I look like in real life (I’m usually being a goofball + doing weird shit + making weird faces or noises). But instead of sharing my super long, poetic writing, I just decided to share these photos with some witty banter.
I could have easily just shared the first four photos + captioned the series with “In my natural habitat 💁♀️🌿” because that’s easy + safe, but that’d be a freakin LIE. I don’t LIVE in Flowerland 😂
So that’s when I decided to throw in that last photo. + if you haven’t even scrolled to the end of this gallery yet + cringed, you can go ahead. Now that. THAT IS ME IN MY NATURAL HABITAT. This is a REAL, UNEDITED photo sneakily taken by @paigemather that made me cry laughing until I almost peed my pants.
Olive Garden breadstick (yes, it is a breadstick. Maybe I should have started this post with some click bait like “Read till the end to find out wtf I’m holding because it probably isn’t what you think it is”) in hand, looking derpy af, forehead glistening with sweat.
What is similar about all of these images is that I’m surrounded by people I love + I am having an AMAZING time! ✨ Isn’t that the whole point of this journey?! To enjoy human experiences as HUMANS instead of Instagram influencer bots??
I don’t know man, this life + social media convergence is such a journey. We’re some of the first people to be experiencing this integration in our generation + I could go on 4EVER. So I’ll just shut up now + you guys can take over. What do you all think about this topic???
Continued in comments because I can’t keep thoughts condensed sorryyyyyy👇
