Here's another piece I wrote for the fantastic ladies at Quarterlette: Life is not your newsfeed.
"I have the coolest friends on Facebook. Every time I check my newsfeed I see all the amazing trips they take, their beautiful family pictures, the witty statuses they come up with, and the overall better life they live. Yep, my friends are living it up.
I bet your friends online are pretty amazing, too.
The more I notice their superior lifestyle the more mine seems pedestrian. While they are finishing marathons, I am watching a second hour of SportsCenter. While they Instagram their delicious meal, I am having a hummus and chips dinner. Their tweets are funny, and their Tumblrs are so artful. And I have nothing near as great to show for my existence…
This is life on social media."
I hope you enjoy it, as well as the other really thoughtful content Quarterlette puts out on a regular basis. They are one of my favorite blogs to read.
