angry much?

Ok. Sometimes, I get angry. Anger isn't a bad thing, but in my case, it usually is. I have a hard time being angry "in moderation."

Anyone who knows me knows that I can be passionate. Very passionate. When I love something? I love it. When I hate something? I hate it. I. Hate. It. I really, really do. And right now, I'm kinda angry.

I'm angry at facebook. Ever since I saw the movie about facebook, "The Social Network," I've had a chip on my shoulder about the whole thing.

[Just an fyi, from now on, I'm not paying attention to capitalization, I'm grabbing another beer so you can all just forget about that shit.]

so facebook. guess what, america? we've just handed over thousands of gigabytes of our personal lives to one company. one private company that can do whatever the hell they want with it. wonder why the facebook adds are so "accurate"? ever wonder why as soon as you've switched your relationship status over to "single" how all of a sudden all your adds shout out you about "singles" sites? guess what? mark zuckerberg sold you out. your personal info? sold out.

uhg. what bull shit. why the hell am i even...? i don't know...

i'll be honest with you. what pisses me off about facebook is that people take it too seriously. news flash: we are not our facebooks. we are us. i am me. you are you. if i'm not "friends with you on facebook", it doesn't mean i hate you. don't get me wrong, it could mean that, but sometimes it doesn't. maybe it means i don't need all your mindless internet dribble all over my news feed. maybe it means i don't want you seeing certain shit i put on the internet. maybe it means i don't freaking know you, so leave me alone, or get to know me better.

it's been a few months since i graduated college. there are people i knew at college that i don't really care about anymore. at all. whatsoever. in fact, in hind-sight, i guess i never really gave a damn about them. but here we are. friends on facebook. and i don't. give. a damn. about them.

so just unfriend them, corbin? no, no, my friend, it's not that simple. if only life was that simple. but people take this shit so personally. so seriously.

i know what you're thinking. 'buck up and just do it. who gives a fuck what other people think? it's your facebook and you can do whatever you want with it.'


you're right.


i probably won't do it.

oh well.

  1. Lots of anger. Facebook does suck. Why not just get rid of it? Cause if you do then you cease to exist. Almost literally. I feel you pain. Congrats on winning $25 from Ryan.
