One of the worst problems about blogging and social media is that everything can start feeling “perfect.” Too perfect. Actually, it drives me crazy personally because I find myself comparing my life to what I assume to be these perfect lives I follow on Instagram or Twitter… and then I remember that my own life may seem perfect from social media. LOL, it’s not. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I have a great life! But I tend to definitely share the highlight reel.
Taking a cue from Glamour, I thought it would be fun to share some of the footage that landed on the cutting room floor. No highlight reel here.
Hey, it’s okay…
to eat pizza five nights in a row
to buy a week’s worth of underwear to avoid laundry
to grocery “shop” at Duane Reade
to crack your phone’s screen and then shatter the replacement three days later
to use any and every excuse to browse Barnes & Noble
to change your outfit
seven twelve times before meeting your boyfriend’s mom
to sleep in accidentally the day this post went live (#theirony)
to tip the delivery guy with a huge handful of quarters because I didn’t have cash
to ignore literally all but three people who texted me this week (sorry y’all)
to watch the first episode of House of Cards twice and read the plot summary before getting hooked
… and on that note, to use every spare moment watching Orange Is the New Black
to contemplate buying a printer and forwarding every PDF ever to your boyfriend instead
to waste an hour of your life watching unexpected friendship videos of animals (a lamb & a husky!? I cried.)
to trip and fall while wearing sandals– flat sandals. Don’t even know.
to chase your morning dark-roast coffee down with an iced coffee
to use your puppy as a personal vacuum cleaner
to spend $15 trying to get the perfect photostrip and looking dumb in every photo
to only order appetizers (and demand to know why they took the best one off the menu) for dinner
Has anything happened in your life recently that didn’t make the “highlight reel”?
