Since I've had Facebook deactivated for almost 2 months now I've made a startling realization and that is you don't have as many friends as you think you do. Since I stopped msging everyone first, I realised more than half these people don't ever msg me. In fact I think we will never talk again if I am not the one constantly msging them. It's quite sad really, you start to realise most these people only keep you on there out of curiosity and not because they actually enjoy talking to you.
It's been an interesting social experiment to teach me the value of the close friends that do there best to actually remain in contact with me, and for those people I truly cherish that and am now giving my full attention too. You can have 4000 people on your social media, and still feel alone. That's pretty sad the way we have come in life, I will probably not be re-activating my facebook for an entire year.
Being off there has been incredibly good for my mental health, it truly is a toxic place where people compete with a bunch of crap we don't care about. Always trying to make there life seem better than it is, posting mundane crap no one cares about but above all else it's now turned into a political hell hole of people arguing about everything. So sick of logging in and seeing a vegan tell me I'm an asshole for eating meat or a feminist post telling me I'm a horrible human simply because I'm male or a bunch of American politics arguing about Trump. It's all just a bunch of shit I realised. No one listens to each other, no one learns anything, they all just scream at top of there lungs to be the most heard.
No one changes there mind from Facebook, they already made there mind up. They just go there to try shove it in your face.
Do it, deactivate Facebook for a week, and you may realise you don't have as many friends as you think.
Currently I'm watching Dexter. It's a show I watched when the first season came out a long time ago with my first ever girlfriend. The thing is when we got to around season 3 or so we broke up, and that left a painful memory for the rest of my life related to the show so I could never finish it without thinking about her. Luckily I'm now older and moved on I'm able to watch it without those feelings being hurtful anymore.
I love Dexter, it's a show based on psychology that goes very deep into serial killers being numb to normal emotions. That kind of traumatic event when younger can leave visible imprints on the brain forever. What I love about it is the main guy is not a good guy, but he is at the same time. There is no clear line on what is good and what is bad. When shows are not black and white it forces you to think about things and make up your own mind based on your own morals. Is he a good guy for killing bad guys? or is he still a bad guy for murdering? You be the judge.
Michael C Hall that plays Dexter is also a personal favourite actor of mine. He pulls off the stoic, calm man but also gives off that eery feeling. He plays a character I enjoy in Six Feet Under as well, a great morbid show about death and running a funeral home. It touches on some very deep feelings of life and death that can leave you quite rattled.
So someone made a take on Garfield by turning him into a gigantic monster beast in a gaming setting and I gotta say it's fully hilarious. I love it. Have a look for yourself. As someone that grew up on Garfield I found this hilarious. In this video CarlTheVoiceActor(Snak) did the voices for it. Check it out! -
Me and my friend recently set a 3 monthly goal to push ourselves a little further and hold ourselves accountable for our workouts. It's also a little bit of friendly competition which lets face it, helps drive us. This article will be able to hold our goals in writing too so we can come back and check them.
Begins - 1st July
Ends - September 30th
My goal is to gain between 2kg to 6kg in the next 3 months, mostly in muscle, but a little fat is fine too since I'm quite skinny.
Current Weight - 59.5kg
Goal Weight - 63kg+
Marty Lettuces goal is to lose 3kg of fat and gain 3kg of muscle. He has access to full body scans to be able to show how its going which is pretty cool.
Current BF - 22.7%
Goal BF - 19.7%
