Dude, just don't post these things online.

Social media is a huge and sometimes dangerous place to be in. From time to time, we get to see weird posts from people that just makes us want to scratch our heads and ask them, "Why would you post that?" Just like us, girls, guys are also guilty of publishing these things online, giving us weird feelings about them.

  1. Selfies. What's worse than a selfie? A half-naked selfie that they supposedly took after working out or going to the gym or just because they're, oh we don't know, bored. Just no, you guys. We don't need to see these photos because we know you're working out just by looking at your normal, fully-dressed snapshots with your friends. No need to boast about how you loved keeping your body fit and lifting weights during your leisure time.

  2. Weird photos. And by weird photos we mean those stills from very graphic movies and horror films. Or those photos that make us feel totally grossed out. We hope we can just unsee them but, sadly, we can't. There is a good reason why most of us don't want to spend a few hours of our time watching horror and gory films. We definitely don't need a reminder on our feed.

  3. Messages asking for lives, coins, or gems. We understand you need these things to continue playing your favorite game, but can't you just send that message to people you're pretty sure are obsessed with that game just like you?

  4. Too much complaining. We're not the only ones who are guilty of this bad habit. Guys tend to complain and whine a lot online, too, complete with profanities. Please keep your language suitable for very young audiences. Stop spreading bad vibes online. There's so much of that in the world that we don't need you to add to it.

  5. Live posts about a game. Are you a newscaster? No? Then quit spamming our feeds with a blow-by-blow account of what happened during a basketball or a football game. We'd turn our TVs on or stream these games if we wanted to know what happened or who gave an A+ performance or which team ended up winning the championships.

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
