Validation Nation: Attention Whoring at Its Finest!

I’ve decided being a secure, non-validation seeking, mature-ish person is sooo boring and lame. For the next week I’m going to check in on social media to every venue/eatery/whorehouse I patronize to make sure everyone knows how popular and what a woman-about-town I am. This is in no way an attempt to overcompensate for the lack of emotional connection and depth in my relationships, or to make myself feel better about not actually having a life. No siree. I mean, if I don’t broadcast my every move how will you guys like and comment on my posts thereby letting me know that I’m good enough and cool and worthwhile? It’s not like I can feel that way about myself intrinsically. C’mon now.

Coming up later in the week: the importance of passive aggressive vaguebooking to maintain a false sense of superiority and importance. And selfies!
