I’m on Snapchat.
I rejected it sight unseen for ages, but recently I set up an account. Surprise, surprise, I like it! There are no think pieces or debates on my feed. It’s just silly and interesting updates from a variety of people. Some I know personally, and most I don’t.
In the Land of Snaps, filters reign supreme, and that’s my favorite part. In a world of violence and anger and negativity, grown people voluntarily “wear” silly headpieces and special effects while laughing and telling stories in 10 second bursts.
There are more than enough serious moments. It’s nice to have (make) a quick diversion from time to time.
Here’s to not taking yourself too seriously.
