    Rant. Nothing enrages me more

    I've come to loathe Facebook some days.

    There are a few people I've deleted because I can't stand their incessant need to receive attention from their posts and photos. I understand that Facebook and social media is a narcissistic platform for our personal accomplishments, but I am sick of seeing people gleaning...

    I really wish I had meaningful experiences to

    write. But I'm an attention seeker... I just want to be noticed every once in a while. I'm ashamed to admit it, because I know it's bad even though I don't know why. But right now I really don't care what you want to think about me.. I'm an attention seeker.
