DISCLAIMER: excuse me if I don’t bother to capitalize things, i’m just tryna write fast.

I’ve realized that all the forms of social media have a different ‘vibe’ to them, they’re all different community types. But by FAR my favorite social media community is Pinterest. Because you never know what the fuck is going on. For one moment, you think you know what the app is about, and then the next moment you see whole boards of just tumblr screenshots. I know, it’s confusing. It’s about cosplay and cooking and photography. It’s everything you want and all the things you don’t want.

It sends you photos of beautiful girls that makes you hate yourself, but in the same tap it will give you a quote on self love. It gives you boob-flattening tips for fitting into spiderman suits but it also gives you sock-filled push up bra hacks. Honestly it’s confusing. But that’s just the feed. The comments are worse. it’s one ten year old body shaming another girl for having long legs, saying she looks like a horse, but then out of the blue, there’s a thirty year old man in the comments posting the fire emoji. Like damn son! get porn hub if your that horny!! don’t ruin my peaceful afternoon of looking at cat photography and outfit inspo!

I write here when I delete all my social media and pretend I don’t exist. I’m a teenager who used to live on a beautiful farm by a creek tucked into the sweet aroma of Concord grapes. Now I live in a 15 story apartment complex above a dog park in Philadelphia.
