Brace Yourselves for the “New Year, New Me” FB Posts

Nowadays, it seems to me that everyone makes new resolutions when the New Year starts. People need to somewhat accept the fact that New Year is a more celebrated holiday than Christmas, people during this joyous occasion wants to seemingly start 2014 off on the right foot by listing their resolution on social media sites like Facebook while firing up beautiful fireworks to welcome the year 2014. A New Year's resolution is a decision to reform old not so good habits or it can be a resolution to achieve new goals in life. The successes of these resolutions will considerably depend on the person’s will to continue with the new good habit, here are some Usual New Year’s Resolutions you will spot on social media sites.

New Year, New Me - Will Lose Weight / Exercise More
Gender: Female
Since people are more critical towards a girls body image rather than boys, this resolution will be more common to girls of all sizes. Because girls are usually the ones that get criticized and picked on when they get a little heavier after a festive holiday such as Christmas and New Year.

List of Shocking Videos

Thousands of videos are uploaded everyday on Youtube. You can browse their video library, and their video ranges from documentaries, interviews, reactions, televised shows, music videos and a whole lot more. From these list of videos there are also those that are known as viral videos. These viral videos are not limited to entertain and fascinate viewers alone, it sometimes gets infamous because of the shock value of the content. Many of these videos have extreme disgust factor, that’s why it hits viral social media status overnight. Although, many are not fans of these shock videos there is still great sense of curiosity, so the numbers of views steadily rise despite the disgust. With the advent of social media sites such as Facebook and Youtube, people are getting keener on the once taboo world of voyeurism. 

Here are some examples of shock videos that went viral.

2 girls one cup
As a summary of this shock video, the primary factor that made this video an odd hit among Youtube viewers was their fascination at the level of repugnance this video brings to the table. This video is about two girls who primarily defecated into a cup and then later on started to consume the excrement inside that cup.

Facebook Christmas

Christmas is the special time to celebrate the birth of Jesus and it is also the time to offer gratitude for everything that we are accomplishing in this life time. Christmas is also the perfect time for family, friends and endless decadent food to be posted on social media sites such as Facebook. Christmas is our Holiday excuse to be extra narcissistic in posting personal guilty pleasures/pictures that makes our Christmas holiday a tad more special and fun. 

Photos of Tasty Looking Food
Food is ofcourse going to be a staple post in social media sites because of the abundance of food that will be present in every Christmas table for the Noche Buena. Food is one of the things that bring people together during this festive holiday occasion (besides booze of course).

Pretty Christmas Tree
Posing in front of a Christmas tree is a known holiday tradition. Well, besides the fact that Christmas is the only “appropriate” time to display a Christmas tree and pose beside it. If you are the one behind the beautifully decorated tree with lots of goodies then you will be very (of course) excited to post cute family photos behind the green tree beauty. Don’t hesitate to share your pretty tree to everyone.

WILDCARD! Home Remedies for Pimples

Steam is a good home remedy to help reduce acne. The steam opens up clogged pores and allows the skin to flush out some impurities like dirt and bacteria that may further agitate the acne causing it to get bigger.

You will need…
-boiling water placed in a bowl
-a towel

You would need to boil a pot of water then pour it in a large bowl and then place your face above the bowl. Just basically allow the warm steam to come in contact with your face, make sure to drape the towel properly so that you will trap the steam appropriately.

FAVE! Charmed Episodes

“Charmed” was one of my favourite television series when I was in high school and college. I would sometimes finish my college paper and reviews while watching the show, which was quiet an effort especially when the topic was about Shakespeare and Freud. This show sparked my fascination with magical powers, warlocks, sisterhood, witches and destiny. This show was primarily about three Halliwell sisters known as the Charmed Ones, whose destiny is to protect innocent lives against mischievous sprite. I guess one of the reasons why it gained popularity was primarily because of the hero portrayal of the Halliwell sisters in the series. They were not portrayed as the usual women victims who were in dire need of saving and a knight in shining armor. They are powerful independent women who do not only have magical powers but are excellent in hand to hand combat aswell. Another formula that made this series popular was because they set an example for other television shows, that a show should always be fun for all ages and it showed that it didn’t have to be all about sex, drugs and violence (although I have to admit that some of their clothes in latter seasons were a tad revealing.)

Let's Turn the Table (December)

When we browse sites such as Youtube it is quiet normal to expect a number of negative video comments, whether these comments are related to the video or not, people seem to be unfazed in sites such as Youtube. We see a number of people disrespecting the video platform just so he can present his egotistical nonsense by commenting and offending the viewers. These offenders are known as internet trolls. And as this trolling trend grows, the growth of misspelled, misused and abused words online grows along with it too. And because of the prevalence of these things on sites like Youtube, I opted to make this monthly list of Youtube comments to somewhat turn the table on them. Here are some:

Not only is this person’s grammar and spelling bad but his racist comment is terrible aswell.
Dis means to treat someone with disrespect
This means a person or a thing that is near to you.
That means a person or a thing pointed out or mentioned before.
