Selfie weekend



I tried to spend my weekend taking selfies, as an attempt to understand the appeal. I now present to you documentation of my experiement with being so obsessed with myself I needed to take pictures of my face and display them on the internet.
 
 
OMG y'all, just brushing my teeth. #oralhygiene #gagmewithatoothbrush #justkiddingihavenogagreflex

This is where girls write some song lyric that makes no sense but they think the lyric speaks to them and describes their look. I can't think of one. #ohyesican #getyoulovedrunkoffmyhumps #mylovelyladylumps

Yeah, I drive. What of it? #youlovemysunglasses #youlovemyseatbelt #safetyfirst #carcondom

After my workout. Don't I look like I worked out so hard? I can barely focus. If you don't work out, you are a loser. #ymca #running #wellactuallyjogging #morelikeputtering #imslow

Yum. My favorite lunch from my favorite place. #popcornchicken #348calories #ieatmealsfromgasstations

Just doing laundry y'all. #keepingitclean #saturdaychores

Just reading my book on my couch in my Livestrong shirt. #lancearmstrong #helikesdrugs #heneedsballs #hungergames #jenniferlawrenceismysoulmate

What, you don't put on makeup to clean your house? I do. #duckface #redlipstick #prettylips #mouthy

Afternoon snack! #zeropointsplus #lovepickles #theresnothingsexualaboutthispicturepervert

Sunday Funday! Heading to the gym. #ifyoudonttakeapictureifdoesnthappen #everyonehastocheckinatthegym #ifyoudontyouarealazypiece

I'm a superhero of sorts. #mysuperpowerisnotappropriateformyblog #hidad

I just painted my nails! Better take a picture so you can all see them! #iruinedthistwosecondslaterwheniforgotmynailswerewetandputsockson #sadface #manicuredoover
So what did I learn from this experiment? It is hard to remember to be this self involved. And it's embarassing to put them online. So for the people who post selfies on their Facebook several times a week - I salute you. I do have some questions for you though...
1. If it truly a selfie if there are other people in it? I didn't take any with my friends, because I wasn't sure. But on the red carpet last night, they kept talking about who they were going to get selfies with.
2. Do you just always have makeup on? I seriously never wear make up from the minute I shower on Thursday night until Monday morning. I don't get it.
3. Why post every selfie?
4. How do you remember to take them so often?
5. Do they count as selfies if you make someone take a full body picture of you posing? And why do you think you're a model?

That's all.
