It’s crazy how you can download all of your Facebook data and scroll through every post you’ve ever made. Especially if you’ve been on Facebook as long as I have (just shy of 10 years).
I can see right where my animosity reached critical mass. I mean, I was always kind of a reactionary asshole, but it went fully off the rails around the time Clinton and Trump were nominated. Granted, personal events coincided with that, but still...
Anyway, it’s all going in “The Jomanifes...to: a Covfefe Table Book.” (Yes, that is actually happening, no, I don’t care if you think it’s a terrible idea).
It has been quite the wake-up call, reading through all of this.
I want to be the person I was before American politics tarnished the fuck out of me.
And it’s not just me. I know that. The same thing has happened to everyone, in a way.
Download your own FB data and check it out. Who were you before the election? What riled you up? I’m willing to bet it was trivial compared to what upsets you now.
