Listen up y’all… here comes Getmii
Are you guys feeling a bit lost lately? Let me guess why. Yik Yak is blocked? Fellow Massholes and East Coasters, I’m with you on this one. We can all pretty much say that Yik Yak did not work out so well for us, high schoolers.
I guess it did start out pretty well. Looking to promo a local restaurant? On the prowl for a cheap, secondhand iPod (tbt to those iPod Classic bricks)? Or do you just feel like braindumping to peeps around you? Yik Yak was there for you.
’Cause, you know, a lot of good things in life have twists (PSA: if you don’t look for the catch in life, natural selection is coming for you). Braindumping has turned out to be not so innocent after all. Yik Yak has followed ask.fm into the, frankly speaking, hellhole of gossip and general nastiness with cyberbullying. And it really hasn’t been such a cool place to be on after all. To all you haters on Yik Yak: I wish I could bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles and everyone would eat it and be happy… (if you didn’t get that… come on)
But guys, there is a light at the end of this tunnel. Don’t know if y’all have already heard, but Getmii is the new shit at a lot of college campuses and big cities around the US. It’s even blowing up overseas in Thailand and Nepal.
You can do pretty much the same things that people did with Yik Yak (minus all the not so cool, not so PC things that went on there) and more. I mean, we’ve all been there. Sitting there in that timeless void of procrastination between Thursday and Friday, and are you working on that history paper that’s been sitting there for a week? Heh heh heh, not really. You’re scrolling through episodes of the Great British Bakeoff or the Worst Cooks in America. Looking for other recs on what to watch? You won’t have to suffer alone on this one… broadcast your dilemma on the app!
Or is the end of the year and do you still have that old rel-phil textbook? Are you starting to wonder if it would be easier to just burn it than to get some cash off of it? Just wait a minute you pyros. You’ve got to admit that there are a lot of cons to that course of action. The solution? Get on the app! There’s bound to be someone out there around you who really needs that textbook that you’re dying to get rid of.
There are endless ways for us students to use this resource. Need a ride downtown? Looking for a study tutor for French? Willing to pay someone in cookies for a Shake Shack smoothie? There’s someone out there who’s willing to deliver.
Join your local Getmii family guys. And if it’s feeling a little lonely, invite the squad. #doyougetmii?
