“In a world where the selfie has become our dominant art form, tautological phrases like “You do you” and its tribe provide a philosophical scaffolding for our ever-­evolving, ever more complicated narcissism.” Yeah, whatever. Ima do me and take a selfie of my cute ass outfit today. BYE!@

Remember the Macarena? In 7th grade I tried to kiss a boy to this song at a dance. He didn’t like the Macarena, or maybe it was me. Who can say?

Have a great day! And you do you, boo.
