"Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through."
I don’t miss you. I hated all your new and “improved” features. I hated looking at alllll the people I was trying to forget. I hated trying to fine a new “profile pic!!”. I hated looking at the parties I couldn’t go to (aka didn’t hear about until they had already happened). I hated looking at cute guys that are dating crazy girls. Plus Facebook, you are rotting the minds of our youth. See below:
I can remember the days that I used to go out and not worry about what would be posted on Facebook. Why does everyone post every picture on Facebook!?! Facebook, you have made having fun into a competition! Oh how you have brain washed us. Further, I hated status updates. NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU ARE DOING 3000 FRIENDS I HAVE RANDOMLY ACCUMULATED!
Overall Facebook, I hope your system crashes…and that people realize that you are a deadly drug. See below:
