So, I don't know about you, but I loathe it when people whine or complain on facebook. Maybe it is because whining on facebook is usually something like: "I'm so tired of this weather" or "I'm so tired of people who judge" or "I'm so tired of being pregnant" or just plain "I'm so tired."
Whining and complaining on a blog, however, is totally fine. Why? you ask. It has to do with the fact that a blog post is longer than a one line status update. So you can explain how you feel in a more exact way--what's really bothering you.
Plus, blog whiners usually put in a little gimme like- "I know I'm just being a baby about this and I should really be grateful right now, but I just feel whiney...." So I can totally relate to that. They know they are being a baby and acknowlege it
And then, there are times when people have truly, deeply sad things happen and that is worthy of a blog post. A one-liner on facebook is too trivial to handle that kind of hurt.
What do you think? Does whining on facebook bother you?
hmmm. that sounded cranky. I'm really not cranky today. I am totaly wiped out! P90X plyometrics. Not for the faint of heart. It is now 1 1/2 hours since I finished working out and my face is finally close to normal color. It was a flaming beet red. Is that bad, in your opinion? I may not get much done today. Moving hurts. (whine whine whine--I know, when I can fit into my size 12 jeans I'll be so glad I did this--so you don't have to feel bad for me. I'm glad I'm doing it! Victory will be S-W-E-E-T.)
I have complained on facebook, much to my shame. And it wasn't very satisfying, let me tell you. By the time I was over it, people were still commenting sympathetically and I felt so shallow. What happened was, I got a haircut on Valentine's day. I showed the girl in the hair salon a picture of what I wanted and she talked alot about doing this or that and I said that sounds good and I wound up with the haircut she had instead.
This is what she did. After 4 weeks, I can almost make my hair look like how she styled it. Thank goodness I have a super awesome flat iron.
I felt okay about it until I got home. Then I had a complete meltdown and ate a bunch of chips and Nacho Cheese (and whined on facebook shamefully. In my defense, it was not a one-liner.) Then I ratted my hair like this.
Then I laughed at myself and I was fine. Besides, the haircut does look modern and like I know what is going on in the world--which was the ultimate goal. I was tired of people telling me I looked like a runaway from Little House on the Prairie or an escaped polygamist. Sheesh! How much more black eyeliner do I need to add?
The princesses all wanted to get in on the silly messy hair pictures.
One of the reasons I was originally upset about the haircut was that I had set my heart on bangs, and I couldn't see any when she styled my hair. But I found them. So I felt better.
This is another look I have not been able to replicate again. Too bad. Nobody would tell me I looked like a polygamist if my hair was like this.
