Top Annoying Facebook Posts Part 2

       I can think of at least one person for each of these:

I'll be writing more about some of the above facebooker types in future posts
(and a couple below in this post).

So true...haha.  Thank god there's an option to block people from your newsfeed now.

Alright, I won't lie.  I posted the picture above on my Facebook wall on March 20, 2011.  It was my first time making pan-seared scallops correctly and I was proud.  I swear it's the only time I've done it.  LOL.  

The thing that bugs me the most about people posting food on Facebook is that those people tend to do it all...the...time.  Sometimes it makes me hungry (and then I'm grumpy I don't have that for MY dinner), and other times it makes me lose my appetite (because it looks nasty).  The most common annoyance with it is that it's so pointless and just takes up my newsfeed.  I don't need a play-by-play of what you're eating today.  Can you imagine if everyone did it for every meal/snack?!  Create a blog for pete's sake!  (haha)  

We all know those people who are begging for attention and making empty threats about deleting Facebook.  Occasionally, those people delete it for a little bit and then realize the world doesn't really care.  That's when *poof* they're back on.

  2. A datebook.
journal - daybook - notebook

This, my friends, is a diary (defined above). If you're set on something electronic, do not fear, I found you a website that is not Facebook.  http://diary.com/

Top Annoying Posts on Facebook Part 1

Alright kiddos--Here's a post on some of the things I witness on Facebook that I find utterly obnoxious (and occasionally sad).  I'm sure I was guilty of some of these here and there in the early days of college, but come on!  You should all be Facebook pros!  

So get a diary, tell your significant other you LOVE them to their face, volunteer for a politician's campaign, and confront your "Frenemy" in person.

I'll share some examples (being satirical here):  

How do you like my make-up guys?  

The infamous selfie pic.  It was taken on instagram which means you're not only a model, but also a creative photographer.  (This photo is not on Facebook.  I took it to make a point on this post.  Besides I look like a fool. LOL)

I have the best boyfriend EVER!
I love you honey boo boo boo.  You are so special and put up with my moodiness even when I'm PMS-ing.

The Public Couple.  Gag gag.  Unfortunately, this is very common on Facebook.  Who doesn't want everyone in on the details of their relationship?  I mean, I think you're SUPER cute and everything, but you make me want to vomit.

The alternative is when these same couple have fights on FB.  That's just embarrassing.  Get a diary / therapist / friend (Facebook ones don't count).  I don't know maybe you've exhausted all of them including your Mom.  The therapists can't help you so you think:

ait, people will see this on Facebook and ask me what's wrong!  BINGO!  

I'm pregnant!

The Ultrasound. Just because it says it is the "profile" of your fetus doesn't mean you need to make it your "profile pic" on Facebook.  I'm okay with not seeing the inside of your Uterus on my Newsfeed.  Whatever happened to only showing it to close family and friends as proof that you're pregnant?  You can just post that you're pregnant on Facebook.  I'll believe you.  


There is a web application that will turn pictures of babies into pictures of things you choose.  Examples: Puppies, Pizza, Sunsets, etc.  I installed it but later felt like a jerk so I uninstalled it.  It does work though...if you're interested.

Forming Habits...Breaking Habits...You can DO it!

Discipline is remembering what you want.  
--David Campbell

Good Habits:

  • Exercise (get that heart rate up...be careful at the gym if you're clumsy)
  • Reading Daily (probably something that makes your brain work a little)
  • Eating well (Mix it up a bit.  I learned eating pizza often with different toppings doesn't count)
  • Spending time with friends/family/pets
  • Showering (No one wants to be around the smelly kid)
  • Chores (Then why does it sound so negative)
  • Smiling (is my favorite) :-D

A goal without a plan is just a wish.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Bad Habits:

  • Drinking booze in excess
  • Smoking cigs/bath salts/crack (you get the idea)
  • Gossiping like you're back in middle school
  • Watching TV (get off your butt and do something)
  • Quoting The Office incessantly (That's what she said)
  • Frowning (smile lines are much cuter later anyway)
  • Shopping like it's your job (unless you're a personal shopper...then go right ahead)

He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still. 

Steps to take to change or form a habit:

Step 1. Decide that you really want to change and convince yourself that you can

Step 2. Try to gain insight on what's causing the bad habit

Step 3. Set reasonable goals at first

Step 4. Measure your progress and don't be discouraged by occasional slips

Step 5. Seek additional support if your habits are proving harder to change
