Maaannnn…Fuck social media.

No for real, fuck that shit.

Every October, I take a much needed hiatus from social media, and return on November 1st with the same anticipation that can only be matched by that of an “Insecure” season premier. Surely THIS TIME I will find originality, inspiration, some really artistic content, something worth scrolling for. But sadly, each year I am left disappointed and unsatisfied as I inevitably come to the same realization time and again: Here we are in December, almost out of this the year of our Lord two thousand & eighteen, and
