Quitting Instagram: She’s one of the millions disillusioned with social media. But she also helped create it. by Mnemonic in Internet

Yeah so I didn't finish the article, but I call BS... pretty confident I can say she "got sick of" IG for reasons more like these or a combination of these: 1) IG 'lost intimacy' for her because she lost her friends 2) she got salty because she helped make the app and still only had 20,000 followers 3) boy trouble, nuff said. and/or 4) selling out didn't pan out

Lol so, full disclosure, my delay in replying was from me typing out, and then losing to the ether land, said typed reply, twice, and then from me of course bitterly ignoring this whole site for a few days lol...so, just know, to me, this comment's glory can never compare in its essence to my first... and second attempts haha.
Anyways - that's so awesome that you work in a library!! And glad you like it. I picture there being no drama in that life, the library life, lol nothing too annoying or partisan or real-world-loaded usually happens in libraries in my world... And I love the distinct lack of pressure and expectations in a library, like you can just sit there and that's fine. You can get books or not... You could even open a book, sit there, and not read it... Lol, for real though, I could, but won't, go on and be detailed in my deep-rooted love of libraries :-D
Also, I feel like there's an alternate universe out there where a chiller and softer spoken Me is a happy librarian - in a universe where I don't struggle to put together normal people outfits like jeans and a regular top and supportive shoes, and where I still have the nice careful handwriting which my mom loved and which she lamented my giving up on in my obvious favor of my current writing style (spastic, cramp your hand, bail-at-the-end-of-words, style-change-midway-through-sentence, handwriting), and where I, calmly and without incident, cook and bake for fun or something... and that's a fun thought, that Madame Libraaaaarian Me! Lol.
And yeah, I too wonder about Buju's possible set up... and maybe other misunderstandings of his early music, I dunno.
PS Thanks for reading my rambles again!
I went to a party with so-called "close friends", had an odd night where I felt exposed to dangerous ideals, and observed disturbing things, and now *my life* is upside down and *I'm* betrayed. by Goober_notorious2 in conspiracy

Hmm...I'll mostly take it.
First though, oops, somehow, I just now saw your comment, so I'm sorry I'm kiiind of late back in this game although I'm still kinda affected by everything so I'm not really late to my life at all, haha.
But okay - I will take your "assessment" if you will, of my "naive outlook", because, well, yeah...fair enough, I am pretty naive, and OK I would agree that overall I did "merely" encounter "mean spirited but otherwise normal people" but... There's more to it, people!! Just tryna ultimately say fuuucckkk cuz evil is gross.
But - humbly - more importantly: thank you, you are indeed correct that it could have, certainly in the world we're in, been a way way worse occurrence for me overall in the big picture...
and I subsequently stand corrected because I myself did overlook such/any gratitude and wider perspective in the situation, and, as gratitude and positivity are the actual things I am trying to pay more attention to for working on myself, I really do appreciate you drawing attention to big pic perspectives and bigger issues like safety in the moment etc.. So, once again, I have learned and it wasn't easy......And I feel all embarrassed and wise.
(Ugh I have to say all this -- I'm embarrassed for being a whiny bitch at life, but not embarrassed about the original situation at all, and I'm not taking any blame, and not giving up my ground to evil, and thus this comment should not be interpreted any further as me "realizing I played a role or deserve it" or anything whatsoever at all in the devilish fuckery that ensued! In fact, In this situation, I hold true that it was actually partly thanks to my own naivete and to my (still remaining, I'll acknowledge work needing to be done ) sweetness/"goodness" that ultimately, in these events that occurred and in life, help protect me and separated and still separate me from the evil )
*********EDIT: Oh! I forgot until now - Since my original post, I had (after time, a little research, some realizations, and after soul-searching/recollection and the analysis of significant/pertinent info/current "vibes" etc. (No drugs, I know that might have sounded like it, haha)) come up with a self-compiled working "Franken-theory" stating that: if/AS different dimensions exist simultaneously in our universe, there is, therefore, in each individual (existing in each dimension at the same time, on different timelines and experiencing alternate realities) the prescence of some amount (including none) of evil, which is "technically" measurable in its varying degrees *(as would then be the case with any/all other traits and characteristics, and, as is conceptually comparable to the already familar "smaller scale", or maybe micro level, spectrums of traits present wholly/solely within singular (self-contained? Lol) individuals within any one dimension) thus potentially/theoretically/hypothetically representing/creating a spectrum of the person's evil across the dimensions and their realities. (Yes, that's a whole scary rabbit hole that I'm not diving down atm).
Soooo... I dunno, that's that first of all, and I further speculate that perhaps recently CERN was "ran" or whatnot, and (this time?) if running the collider did not open a new dimension, perhaps, this time, running it might have caused "lesser" dimensional shifts or merges/combinations, or like jolts in the realities, and perhaps CERN can/did even close out a dimension.
So, obviously, effing around with our dimensions causes many possible upheavel problems - for example, the last part of my theory is that, potentially, someone's "evil levels" could "go up" (not only as a "regular" part of life in one's normal reality, but also) due to these potential dimensional disruptions - maybe such as the combining of two dimensions that were close enough together in time for the universe to be able to "pull off a smoosh-together", however there will always be seams there, and maybe if an individual was already flagging higher on the "evil scale", then they in particular could get "way worse/more evil" with any change to reality, even unnoticed changes.
Just a side note: It wasn't only the one isolated event from my original post that lead to this "whole theory", but rather, I applied my prexisting beliefs/knowledge/research initially to that event, then to the fallout, and used logical-emotional (lol I can say both to be fair and to add the salt grain myself) analysis of the time/situations/vibes leading up to events etc, and I included as evidence (yes, to myself!) other weird events and info after...but anyways, there's improvement, I now believe we are back out of the "Twilight Zone period" that I kinda think we slipped in and out of - hence my "maybe it was as dimensions went askew there"....shrug call me crazy! :)

Lol, oops - so somehow I just now saw your comment and A) I had to Google "pua sarged" and B) while I was looking it up, btw fully thinking initially that it was "some video game term", I therefore did learn something today through this googling, so thank you, BUT drumroll C) (while my life is at least calmer now, it is still affected) I actually WISH it had been that "simple" of an experience (disclaimer: as simple as my superficial research into "sarging" indicated)! Lol, and while I could (humor myself and) draw either tenuous or rabbithole comparisons to related situations... really there was a lot lot more to my situation, which I'm at least calmer about now but I am still bitter... Aaaand perhaps I was being a liiittle bit dramatic, but I DID get (social/emotionally) backstabbed so I dunno, hopefully next time I just won't get backstabbed and then I won't have to figure out how not to be dramatic and weird...ah well. I re-read my long comment above and it's fine...lol I'm just clearly growing into my grown up woke insanity brain ;-P and I still believe in the evil out there being realer than I knew before.
(Sorry for this 2 weeks later rant, perhaps you were just joking which actually works too because I did get a little chuckle when I Googled it, however then I also got a little creeped out by what I read, and, by then, it was either I do more background/context research to understand or (my chosen option) I just backed off knowing that it's not something I care to know about much past tbe urban dictionary, haha)

Nice, and thank you, your comment totally just reminded me that I was supposed to finally get, after tracking down, that whole CD from interlibrary loan like almost 3 years ago now haha, and I don't even remember what all happened with that, so putting that album on my radar again, thanks! The more I think about it, I must have failed to pick it up within the library's time frame...lol, if one would have told Childhood Me that Grown Up Me would not only be even more dorky greedy with getting stuff from the library than kid me, but alsoooo be just as irresponsible and chronically late-fee-addled as ever... then I miiight have laughed at that, but it is apparently all true! :) Yeah, I freaking love libraries, and dancehall reggae while we're on that subject, lol.
Also did you look into Buju's story too? I just think it's weird and interesting and... maybe fishy/sketchy? But not solely due to him - is my impression... granted, I've only done a little research, not a ton.
PS Sometimes rambling is cathartic and so that, combined with the "bonus" time for my editing, was baaasically a lil therapy session for me today, so again thanks to all reading this! :)
Yeah :) and an interesting story his is, I found out later on!

The banana is dying. The race is on to reinvent it before it's too late by Mnemonic in environment
Don't apologize for banana jokes! Lol
My immediate genuine reaction of "omg no I love bananas" shows 3 things: 1) I really love bananas a lot 2) enough to "worry" about this simply by the headline 3) which I think was the first thing to really slip by my hardened shell of immediate skepticism in a while, lol...I know lots of shit is going really bad in the world, but it's not every day I fear for my lifestyle...
If it's true, oh well, I've heard humans have similar DNA to bananas so they'll probably just start harvesting us to create 'nanas ;-P
PS I'm not sharing my banana nice cream recipes because then you guys will eat all my bananas
PPS jk -- freeze chunked (and then mashed in the bag for best results) bananas for like a day or less and then experiment by blending in (or if you're me just lazily smooshing in) delicious milks like protein nutmilk and powders like powdered pb or strawb carnation, or whatever tf makes you happy because this treat will!!! So yummy lol
