Being Our Best Selves


The Nightcap

Nightcap for June 11th, 2018

APERTIF:

I feel sorry for people who don’t drink. When they wake up in the morning that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day.” – Frank Sinatra


Casual Encounters

Senior Year pranks have been happening since Laura Ingalls attended high school. And if you don’t know who that is, it’s really not worth googling. Just know it was a REALLY LONG TIME AGO.

I went to a small private school, where you couldn’t even get away with chewing gum, so I pretty much missed out on all the zany high school pranks. At least, I ASSUME kids all over this country are still up to crazy antics. I like to imagine most high schools are just modern versions of Rydell academy in the movie, Grease… just with less spandex and dancing.

One school has circulated the news outlets recently, and (thankfully) it has nothing to do with a shooting or a scandal.

Filters and Falsities

Who we are on Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram are almost ALWAYS better versions of our real selves.

That one profile pic your friend just put up? Yeah, she probably discarded fifteen other versions before choosing the best one. That one post from your ex talking about how awesome it feels to be single? Yeah, he probably stayed up all night crying before posting it.

It’s the same reason we use excessive filters and only post images of our kids smiling – we want everyone to think we lead amazing lives.

But, the reality is, none of us look good all the time nor are we happy all the time. Unfortunately, sharing our true feelings with the world leaves us vulnerable to criticism and nobody wants that.

Which is why forums, where you can be anonymous, are becoming increasingly popular. It is in these secretive “safe” spaces we can reveal who we really are without the threat of it influencing our daily lives.

Here’s the case for why, if you really want to really know someone, their Google search history might be more telling than Facebook.


The Love Guru

This man is a priest who claims he knows almost immediately if two people are going to make it as a married couple.

Do you think there is some truth to his claims?
