I’m a wee bit narcissistic. I like to look good although you couldn’t tell that from my perpetual “in sweatpants and loose tshirts” style but I do like to dress up.
Even more so, I like to have a clear complexion and a healthy glow that isn’t brought on by a cornucopia of make-up.
Sadly, the latter’s not been in my favor for a while and going to a derma doc to figure out why the face is becoming a ‘join-the-dots-page’ is also not on the horizon at this time.
The first time I used Snapchat it was purely on a lark and its utter airbrushed, emphasis-on-fair quality made me think that it would promote unreasonable notions of fairness and “prettiness” in the vulnerable, impressionable young people but damn my skin looked good!
Over time it’s become my go-to silly-time app. The filters are ridiculous and whether am sporting a beard, a hat or big bunny ears, it’s all good because the chuckle-factor is fairly high.
And we could all do with more chuckles in life especially during times of uncertainty, crisis and being at crossroads in our lives.
Cheers to Snapchat! May your filters multiply and may your tribe grow…naah..you have enough users..
