THE WONDER YEARS IS coming (or, the year 2013 in fake status updates)

So, today is the last day of 2013. I have the flu, naturally. So instead of some insightful meditation on the past and a hopeful reflection on the future, I am just going to post a bunch of screen shots assembled from the What Would I Say? app, which takes your FB statuses and creates new ones. It is a time suck. It is also the best thing for insecure narcissists who have the flu! You should go to there. But first, read these fake/yet strangely based in reality “statuses” from me.

I was super into humblebrags:

truth.

 

 

 

Picture 13

Picture 19

yup.

Picture 27

always. except downward mobility.

Picture 15

so many of these were about polish dogs. and Ghandi, weirdly enough.

 

 

 

Picture 18

well, i prefer "thrifty".

 

 

 

Picture 23

what? ok.

 

 

 

Picture 24

totally.

 

 

 

Picture 25

exactly.

 

 

 

Picture 28

hmmm. maybe this one should be in the humblebrag category?

 

 

 

I was super into pop-culture/spiritual status mash-ups.
