Ugh.


Quote
but it just made people angry at me for not responding to their non-urgent text immediately like you're supposed to, or liking their frivolous video on social media 2 days late, which is uncouth.


See, this just makes me even more resolute to stay off those services. That mindset just infuriates me. Thankfully, I only really have a few really close friends on FB, all of whom know that they contact me through Messenger if they want to talk to me (this is how I communicate reguarly with one particular old friend - my best friend - whom I haven't seen in years, but we're close via Messenger).

Unfortunately, I have many other "Facebook friends" who are mostly just acquaintances, work friends, etc., and this has done nothing to aid my view of social media. I really should have been more careful when approving requests, etc. (and I feel like I'm too nice to un-friend them, lol Tongue). So I'd just rather not deal with it at all.

And Twitter is just a mess. It begins harmless enough, but it just becomes a sea of people complaining about stuff, 24/7. It puts me under so much stress and breeds such wanton negativity with no real benefit.

"The danger with any movie that does as well as this one does is that the amount of money it's making and the number of awards that it's got becomes almost more important than the movie itself in people's minds. I look at that as, in a sense, being very much like the Ring, and its effect on people. You know, you can kind of forget what we were doing, if you get too wrapped up in that." - Viggo Mortensen
