14 Types of People on Snapchat
Who doesn't have a Snapchat nowadays? With this app, we can all shamelessly share snippets of our lives every day. This is what we use now to constantly update ourselves with what’s happening with everyone in our social circles. Which is why, you've probably noticed how everyone more or less falls into a type because we all snap some things and people more than others. So, which one of these types do you fall into?
- The Selfie Maniac
This is the person who uses snapchat as their personal look book of selfies. You've probably memorized every nook and cranny of their face from all the selfies you've seen. Self-love is nice and all but remember, there's a difference between confidence and vanity.
- The Party Goer
These are the people who don't just go to parties. They are the LIFE of the party. You wonder how these people manage to go to school the next day, despite being out till 4 am raving the night away. Even though you kind of judge them for their wild lifestyle, you secretly are jealous of how much fun they seem to have all the time.
- The Foodie
It's hard to not be hungry every time you open this person's story. Somehow they are on top of the food scene, showing off these incredible meals that make your mouth water at 2 in the morning. What's great is that they give you great ideas on all the new restaurants that you can try with your family, barkada, and significant other.
- The Senti
The best hugot lines always come from this person. Their snaps are always a combination of beautiful scenery (mostly sunsets) and a heart wrenching line that you never knew you needed in your life.
- The One who Snaps EVERYTHING
These are the most annoying of the bunch because they not only snap literally EVERYTHING, all of their stories are at least 100 seconds. That’s a whole lot of your time that they unfortunately tend to waste. Not everything has to go on your story, remember that.
- The Couple
Ants crawl up your arms each time you see their stories. Almost every single date, kiss, study session, and cuddle parties are covered by their snaps. The PDA is REAL with these people and you're not always sure whether you love them or hate them for it.
- The Wanderer
You die of envy when you open this person’s story because you're 100% sure they're in some exotic location you only dream of going to. It seems like they are on a never ending adventure and someday you're hoping to be like them as well.
- The Filter Obsessed
Snapchat filters are amazing but some people do tend take it to the extreme. You see them use every single filter there is available and some filters you had no idea even existed all the freaking time. It gets annoying because there is more to Snapchat than their cool filters.
- The One who only chats
Their stories will never appear on your feed but they’ll talk to you for hours on chat. While it’s cool to be able to interact with them, you can never understand why they don’t add to their stories.
- The Artist
Their snaps are always so creative. How these people have the time and creativityto create these hilarious and wonderful snaps escape you.
- The Singer
You don't get why this person still has no record deal because when you open this person's Story, you are in music heaven! The talent that they possess is always mind blowing and you're always dying to see their next snap.
- The Joker
You can't help but laugh every time they send you a snap or your open their Story. It constantly amazes you how they never run out of jokes to post or pranks to pull. Some people just really know how to tickle everyone's funny bone.
- The One Who Never Snaps
Sometimes you forget this person even has a Snapchat. They never snap but they're always updated with what everyone's posting. It’s strange but also fascinating to you how these people use the app.
- The One who ALWAYS rants
The negative energy you feel when you open their snaps is intense. Every day, you hear them complain about all the little things that annoyed them. Big or little things this person did not like, you will definitely hear about it.

5. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

The next thing he knew, he was being held at gunpoint – by a man wearing a mask – and injected with an unknown drug and blacks out. When he regains consciousness, he learns that the world he woke up to was different from the world he knew.
Here's a poem I wrote a while back reflecting on what it's like over-rationalize a simple thing like crushing on a dude -- hence, the title "Scientific Method"
You were a phenomenon I cannot wrap my head around
When I first met you, my heart forgot to make its signature sound
And it's overwhelming, your presence;
And underwhelming, so science will be the only language I'll hide in-- For now.
At first glance, I notice your top button unbuttoned,
and your shirt fully cotton
Complete with a smile as nervous as me
And a swagger in your step only I can see
Further on, I find your wit to be at a pace
That doesn't leave any space for tension to rise
and it's all too nice
And ridiculous and a bit too suspicious
That this isn't another (well,) circus.
Now, let's take a wild guess,
Oh, but it has to be smart, yes,
That this could lead to something with potential
That this isn't another differential easily solved
With a formula, tried and tested but never evolved
For so long, we've both been independent of any dependent
Keeping our variables fixed and ourselves distracted
With anything, everything,
But not a single thing
Could stop me from pushing this blindly to find its threshold,
Hoping that it's a quantity my hands could still hold
Over hours, days, and weeks
Through minor revisions and tweaks
Then comes the analysis -- that these weren't accidents
So, now I find myself in a conundrum
With the anomaly in a blue shirt right in front of me,
That this had to be processed logically,
But the findings are as follows:
None of which were shallow, so I therefore conclude that it's true,
I therefore conclude that it's you.
Mi Luna: The Light in My Dark Soul Locked in… Alone…
Why do I feel comforted by darkness? Oh cause maybe because… I am a jolly and very enthusiast kid back then. All I know is to have fun, laugh and play. But as I grow older, everything has changed, a lot. I can feel the changes. I know the more I get older, I’m turning to something I’m not. You know what, I just realized I like it even more. And that’s how I turned a monster. A monster to my own self. Always questioning life and even God about the things that are happening with my life. “Do I deserve this?”. Every day was a struggle. “Which mask should I wear now?”. And every night is my judgement time. “Should I still continue with my miserable life?”. This certainly sum up my whole life. I have this mindset since I was young. I can say that my experiences made me like this. I always want to escape, but every time I tried to pick up myself up, there is always shits that pulls me down. And there, I get tired. Hoping that no one would ever see this. As I despise myself as well. What I can do now is to just embraced everything, I just embraced darkness- reflecting my own self.
“Look at the moon, it can shine alone and it can give us light at night.” A line I was keeping in my mind that a friend of mine helps me realize things and been there to fix my path. And there I started seeking for my moon but I do not know which part should I start. As days passed, I started to open up myself. I started to act as what truly inside me. It is very hard at first and there is this time that even the situation got worst. But as I continue exploring with my life, a question pop out on my head “Why did I still get this far?”, I can say that maybe I should do this, maybe I really can do this but it is myself who is holding me back because I’m afraid.
Now as far as I am trying to revive my soul, there I know that many people care. Yes, I learned to open up but not to all, on different situations there are people who can understand me because they have the same situation as I am. I learn to open up as long as they did not force me. I learned to navigate and open up for whom I trusted and at the same time when I am ready. The light that I am seeking is my own understanding and acceptance about myself. My light is myself and I am Mi Luna. So it is not too late to save myself. I have thought that, I should be a survivor and winner. That I should also be the ruler of my own mind and soul. Eliminate the room for darkness and let the light shine through you, that I can say how I earned myself again. Mi Luna’s darkness have turned to spotlight.
