Argumentative People on Social Media

Why are most people on social media argumentative? I swear they have huge balls behind their phone or computer. This is why I refrain from commenting on certain posts. I am the type of person who can’t stand going back and forth with others unless I have a reason to. Most of the time the social media stuff is not that deep. People love to get in their feelings when you have a honest opinion.

For example, last night I commented on a YouTube video stating my thoughts on the video. The video was about a famous YouTuber getting exposed because supposedly he is cheating on his girlfriend. Read the picture below to see what I commented:

final youtube comment

Okay, so you read what I commented right? There are 14 replies on it. 2 or 3 people out of the 14 replies were coming out me funny/crazy because of what I said. My thing is I don’t care if  you reply to my comment but don’t try to start an argument with me. Sometimes people fail to realize it’s not what you say it’s how you say it. For some reason before I publish the comment I had a feeling someone was going to try to start something for no reason.

Anyways, some of the rude replies was telling me to “use my head or brain” basically trying to call me stupid. Also, calling me a little kid who believe in fantasy relationships. First of all, I wanted to come through my phone and curse them out. Y’all it was burning me inside. Then I thought to myself it’s pointless and stupid to argue back with them. Another thing I want to mention is I think the whole relationship goals stuff is stupid to a certain extent. Clearly the person was talking junk and don’t know anything about me.

On thing I did do is reply back to one of the negative comments. Basically I told the person I understand their point. The supposedly side chick could’ve sneak and record her with the famous YouTuber. She wouldn’t be the first person to try that. Read the picture below (I marked out the person name I was replying to out of respect):

blocked out name

So, after I replied back saying that. The person wanted to make it into a big argument. I decided to not reply. It’s childish. Then with the other negative comments I left it alone. Now I fully understand why celebrities turn off their comments on social media. I don’t blame them at all.

Anyways, back to what I was talking about. Random people on social media tend to find ways to turn something positive into something negative. In my situation, I believe the people in the replies wanted to prove me so wrong that they wasn’t trying to understand my point of view. The main reason why I wasn’t quick to call the man a cheater in the comments because…

1) I wasn’t there with him if he was messing around with the woman.

2) There are so many individuals who make up scandals on YouTube just so they can become the next big thing

3) I clearly pointed out that I am not trying to say the man is innocent at all.

I guess they couldn’t comprehend what I was trying to get at. Maybe they should use their BRAIN! lol Why am I being petty? Arguments always happen on social media it’s mainly up to you whether or not you want to entertain the bull shit. What are your thoughts about people being argumentative on social media? Do you think I took my situation last night in the wrong way? Put your thoughts in the comment section.

A Strong Presence in the Room

Have you ever been home alone and felt another presence in the room? Like the feeling was so strong you knew for sure someone else is in the room with you. If you don’t understand what I mean. Basically, I am asking have you ever been in a room alone and it feels like someone else is there too. The crazy part about it is the fact you can feel them but not see them. I always believed it is a dead family member lingering in the room. Maybe if it’s not a dead family member. It could be the presence of a person who used to live in the house before you moved in. I bet this is probably creeping you out. You’re feeling a little paranoid just by reading this. Don’t worry I won’t frighten you too bad.

If you had this experience before does it feel weird to you? Maybe you even thought you were going a little crazy. Trust me you weren’t going crazy at all. The energy you were feeling was real. The only reason I am saying that is because I had the same experience. No, I haven’t seen anything float across the room. All I kept feeling is a person presence in the room. Another funny thing about it is the fact that this happens randomly.

Let’s think of another theory. The presence could possibly be the spirit of God coming to visit you. Maybe it’s a way of him letting you know he’s still there for you. Sometimes we need that reminder. That probably didn’t cross your mind until now. This gives you something to think about. There are times we get caught up in worldly problems and we sometimes forget all we need to do is pray to God for help.

Do you have any theories on why sometimes you feel a strange presence in the room? If you had a similar or exact experience share how it made you feel. Did you get scared? Also, let me know if the two theories I mentioned came to mind as you were reading.

Forcing Toxic Relationships

Forcing a toxic relationship becomes a problem when you want to stay knowing that it’s not healthy for you. You need to accept the fact your ex doesn’t want to be with you. Why trap yourself with someone who doesn’t love you? If you stay more than likely they will keep cheating on you. Make your life miserable and distant themselves further away from you. You get what I’m saying?

Just because you are deeply in love with someone or want them to stay in your life forever doesn’t mean they are “the one for you.” It hurts to think about it that way, but you must accept it. If you choose not to accept the truth. Then go ahead and enjoy your miserable life. That’s all you’re going to get out of the relationship you are trying to force.

How many times do you want to get your heart-broken before you finally get it? Yes, I know leaving isn’t easy.  You must fight your weak heart and pull yourself out of the toxic relationship. Staying strong is the only way to get through it. Avoid picking up your phone to text or answer their calls. Block their number and block them on social media. Go out for a little while to have fun and clear your mind. Keep yourself busy with one of your favorite hobbies. You can even try to get a new hobby.

The point I’m trying to make is stop forcing yourself to be with someone who doesn’t love you back. You’re only hurting yourself. Let that toxic relationship GOOOOO! I know love can make you blind but damn how foolish can you be? If something isn’t meant to be it will NEVER work out. Take this piece of advice and start doing what’s best for you.

So, tell me have you ever went through a breakup you never thought you would get out of? If so, share your story in the comment section. I would love to read your story. It may help someone else out.

Rushing into Relationships Isn’t Always a Good Idea

Rushing into relationships isn’t always a good idea. You didn’t take the time to learn the other person’s personality. Did you even figure out what you want out of a relationship before you rushed in one? Maybe you did, and everything worked out fine.

Let’s think about the bad outcome like things didn’t work out. For the first month, you’re in heaven and in love with your partner. Then during the next month, you see how rocky things start to get. The both of you seem to argue about everything under the sun. Your “puppy love” turns into hate towards each other. Everything you planned with the person erases from your mind.

After a while, you start to doubt rushing to get into a relationship with them. You’re even embarrassed that you proved everyone right that told you not to rush things. Relationships aren’t supposed to be rushed. In the beginning, it’s fine to take your time with the person you like. That’s what they have the “talking stage” for.

Give yourself time to enjoy the person before you get fully committed to them. This is the time to chill. The point I’m trying to make is if you’re rushing a relationship with someone. It probably won’t work out. Life is about going with the flow of things. If fate wants you with the person you have feelings for. Then you will end up in a relationship with them.

Fake Relationship Trend on YouTube

Since everyone got hip to the “couple trend” on YouTube it started getting out of hand. All they want to do is get rich quick. It’s a shame what people will do for money. Why fake a relationship? Eventually, people will uncover the truth anyway. Do you want to mess up your reputation just because of a trend? What a shame. It’s not that deep. You can still make it into the YouTube world if you be yourself. That’s what it’s all about anyway.

To the ones that want to join this trend. Think about how you will hurt the YouTube community. Your wrongdoing can/will affect other creators. Like I mentioned in my podcast making money on YouTube is a privilege. Don’t abuse or take advantage of it. Why do you think the creators of YouTube get stricter with their rules? They enforce these rules to kill away fake creators. Trust me they are hip to the game. They know exactly what’s going on.  But of course, people will always try to find a way to finesse it.

Also, think about how many careers you’ll effect. I mean sure the bigger creators have other opportunities, but YouTube is still the platform that built their career. If you still do not take my advice, then I hope you’re ready for the YouTube drama. Fans on YouTube attack you hard like Bey Hive and everybody know not to mess with them.

YouTube is a platform you should take seriously. There are so many talented, beautiful, and helpful creators on there. They work hard to produce amazing content. YouTubing isn’t as easy as you may think it is. There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes. Another thing to remember is YouTube success doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time. Stop the fake relationship trend or any other trend that you think will give you “quick cash.”

After reading this article what are your thoughts on the fake relationship trend on YouTube? Do you think it’s a good idea or not? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Sister, Sister Reboot!

As I was scrolling through my Twitter timeline. I came across a tweet that was from Source magazine saying “Sister, Sister Reboot” click here to read their article. My first reaction was oh no this won’t be good at all. Before you say anything, the only reason why I said that is because every time they give certain shows reboots it doesn’t turn out good. It gives me a mixture of feelings. I don’t know whether I should get excited or not get my hopes up at all. I’ll mention valid reasons why.

The main reason why Sister, Sister shouldn’t have a reboot because it may suck like other tv shows that did the same. Yes, I know every show isn’t exactly alike, but I feel like the production team won’t bring it back to life. I hope they put a lot of thought into this project. Maybe they did who am I to give my two cents?

Most people have their hopes up for reboots like this one and get disappointed because the storyline of the show doesn’t make sense to the original. Everything gets thrown off track. How will the storyline play out? The show already had its “happy ending” in my opinion. The last episode ended with Lisa having her dream wedding. Tia is getting ready to go to New York to the WNBA. Tamera is going off to Africa and Ray gets a new job. What kind of plot twist will the reboot bring?

I love Sister, Sister. Binge watching their show is something I used to do when they had marathons on tv. I won’t get my hopes up for the reboot because it may ruin the real spark that the show had with the twins. Plus, it’ll be too modern. Yes, it may sound crazy to some. Of course, they will have to make it modern but Sister, Sister is better during the 90s era. That’s what made it special to me.

After reading this article, I don’t want you to feel like I am bashing the reboot. Like I mentioned earlier I love Sister, Sister. Also, it’s nice to have one of your favorite throwback shows on tv. Sometimes it’s better when they stay in that way. You can always relive the moments by binge-watching the original episodes. On the brighter side at least, the show will have most of the original actors in it. Everyone seems fine with everything. Also, I read they will have the same production team. Some people will enjoy the show then others won’t. Let’s see what this reboot has to bring. What’re your thoughts on a Sister, Sister reboot?

Apps You Should Download 📱

There are many apps that you can download from your App Store. Thankfully most of those apps are free to download. Imagine paying for every app you download. That could get a little expensive to a certain extent. I’ll be giving you a list of apps you should download. I tried out each one.

List of Apps

Anchor ⚓️: Easy to use Podcast station that you can join for free. You can create your own radio station on this app. When you first download the app on your phone and use it. There is a full detail tutorial to show you how to use the app. It’s a voice recording explaining everything in the app. Some of the features they have are call-ins (your listeners can call into your station), transcribing your audio recording, and favoriting people stations that you can enjoy. Check the app out to learn what other features it has.

Perfect 365 📸Perfect 365 is a Photoshop app. They have features that let you change your hair, use realistic makeup, and change your eye color. It’s so many features that you can try when you edit your pictures on this app.

Pinterest 📌: Mostly everyone knows about Pinterest. On Pinterest, you can find plenty of DIY projects. You can save anything you find on special boards that you create. You can make more than one board, so you don’t have to put everything you find in the same category. Pinterest is useful if you need help finding new recipes for dinner also. Try using the Pinterest app to learn more about it. Trust me it’s worth downloading on your phone. Follow me on Pinterest too.

Amazon 📦: This app sells anything you can think of. For example, Amazon sells books, clothes, electronics. That’s only to name a few categories. If you join Amazon Prime you can get free 2-day shipping which is great! Especially if you want your package to arrive early than it was supposed to. I tried it and the delivery came right on time.

Wish 🛍: It’s a shopping app that sale affordable/cheap items like phone cases, clothes, and household products. Before you buy anything on there make sure you look at the reviews first. The company is in China. Your shipping days may vary depending on where you live and what company you order from on the app. Click here to watch my Wish app review.

Can you believe there are still people out there that don’t know about some of the apps I listed? It may be surprising to some of you. Comment and tell me what’s your favorite app to use? After reading this blog post which apps on the list you haven’t heard of before? You can download the apps on an iPhone or Android.

Signs You’re Getting Catfished!

Many people have got catfished at least once in their lifetime. If you haven’t considered yourself lucky! Even though we live in a society where you can discover the signs easily. People still get catfished anyway. Oh yeah, if you’re not familiar with the term catfish I’ll explain it to you. Basically, catfish means a person hiding behind a fake profile.Usually, the person uses someone else pictures on their social media profile. For example, the person can easily search on google to get pictures of a stranger and post it on the fake profile they created. It’s crazy how easy it is to steal someone pictures on the internet.

Here are the signs…

Excuses to not video chat: Nowadays it’s so easy to get a cheap phone with a camera to video chat. You can even buy a cheap webcam from Amazon or your local electronics store. No one should have a problem with video chatting with someone they are interested in. Remember that tip. Yes, sometimes you may get nervous. Eventually, you would get on camera for video chatting.

Pictures look too Professional: When I say pictures look too professional. It’s those high-quality photos that you can tell when someone went to a photographer to get them done. Regular ordinary people don’t have a pile of pictures like that on their profile. Yes, of course, the iPhone 7, 8, and X have high-quality cameras, but you can still tell it came from a phone and not a digital camera. Usually, models, celebrities, and bloggers plus others post professional pictures. I’m not saying you won’t get lucky and those type of people could message you on social media. Sometimes you should look closely at certain things on a personal profile.

Always “moving”: For some reason, a catfish always say they live in one state. Then a couple of months later they live somewhere else. It’s understandable if the person is in the army and move around from place to place. Catfish people always lie about their location.

As long as the internet is still up and running people will continue to get catfished. Hopefully, the tips you read or listen to in the podcast help you watch out for a catfish. Have you ever had an experience with someone catfishing you? If so, how did you feel about it?
