Getting annoyed by Instagram again

I have been the most negative asshole for the past few blog posts but it does not stop now, friends. Instagram is so easy to complain about, yet I still use it.

I’ve even thought about deleting mine Essena O’Neill style and posting a rant about how insufferable it all is, but then I remember that the public generally only values the opinion of popular, thin and, dare I say, white women and not an insignificant pudgy girl in glasses.

But I am not here to shit on popular blogger stereotypes (at least not today) but instead on those who think their “audience” is upset when they don’t post new content for a few days.

Sometimes I will see a blog write, “I’m so sorry I’ve been MIA! I will have a new blog post up soon, lovelies” or “My blog post is actually going to go up TOMORROW and not at 5 p.m. eastern, so so sorry! Stay tuned!” Even YouTubers do it with their specific scheduling as if we are all sitting at home screaming at our computers because StaceyTutorials hasn’t uploaded her 13,000th glittery cut crease makeup look yet.

I understand that some of the bigger bloggers and YouTubers do have dedicated readers and viewers who look forward to a new look. I have one YouTuber in particular I watch as soon as she uploads a video, and actually get irritated when she hasn’t uploaded in a while. IT’S BEEN A MONTH NOW, KASSIE.

I don’t know the demands of these bloggers and YouTubers, so perhaps their apologetic posts are warranted. I still feel that it is appropriate to question the self-importance one might develop when creating a website or video channel completely about one’s self. It requires a bit of narcissism to stand in front of a camera and document your face, clothes and personality.

I have gone weeks without posting anything on my blog before and feared that I was tarnishing my reputation, but in the end, I didn’t have one. And I bet a lot of these other bloggers apologizing on behalf of their silence don’t have one either. Social media, websites and videos are fast entertainment, and if you’re not creating something, I’m sure there is someone doing it in your place.

Coat: ASOS
Sweater: Primark
Jeans: Topshop
Flats: H&M
Scarf: H&M
Bracelet: H&M

I have stripes, rips and a feather pattern going on in this look. I don’t hate it.

A step back

I am going to be that douche who shows you their week on Instagram because, well, Blue Bell came back and I liked my outfits.

Houston was mysteriously cool and gloomy last Friday, so I took advantage and threw on a sweater. I hate me, too.

Blue Bell came back on Monday, and so did my cardigans apparently. Still wishing for fall.

Wearing black, blue and white to match the stormy sky. Or it could have just been a coincidence.

My croissant-breasted self hung out with a coworker and her manfriend at Neil’s Bahr, which I had surprisingly never visited. We missed out on the karaoke and instead watched people compare dick sizes show off their cars at a bar nearby and ate Chinese from a food truck. Solid night.

I came home to find that the BABYMETAL Funko Pop shirt I ordered was way too big, but at least it came with this cute little Su-metal. She is proudly kitsune-ing at me on my desk.

Friday: Tacos and new shoes. I bought these darling Zara booties for $10 on Poshmark. I check this damn app every day and add stuff to my “Likes” list during my commute to work. It’s so addicting. They’re not even paying me to say that, I just freaking love it.

Tschüß.
