Check out this photo I took yesterday with my iPhone! I put it on Twitter and Instagram so all my friends could look at it and admire my fancy life. That’s right. My existence is so fucking fantastic with my iced jasmine lemon mint green tea! Jealous? You should be.

Oh, and look at that ! There are TWO glasses of tea in that cute little green wooden tray. It’s not because I tried to pretend I have friends by buying two glasses of tea, but because I actually have some. You can only see her arm, but I promise she’s a real live peson and not a blow-up doll or a robot that I have to plug into the wall before I leave the apartment. I swear!

Now look at this photo I took and also put on Instagram and Twitter on Friday night. Sure, I was in on a Friday — by choice — so I did my nails and watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s. But I posted this so everyone would know that although I’m home, I’m doing really fancy things. I’m fucking fancy! Pay attention to me!

Watch below for further explanations on this epidemic:

Now that you’ve laughed at yourself and all your other social media-obsessed friends, you can ponder exactly why we take photos of our food, our hands, our feet, etc. — and more importantly, why are people “liking” these things? I mean, besides the obvious explanation that you’re fancy.

Why do we do this? Why do I do this? Why did I write this post? So you could enjoy my photos, of course.
