this is the will of Bill. to be heard, to be seen. for all my thoughts to be shared. for all my passions to be visible.
if you don't like it, then don't fucking follow me, jackass.
[Teens] felt that on Facebook their life story followed them through their lives in a way that their older brothers and sisters were allowed to start fresh when they moved from elementary school to junior high, from junior high to high school, and then crucially from high school to college. And one said to me, ‘My god, it used to be you that when you went to college, you got a chance to start fresh, to be a new person. I bet that was great.’ And I think that this sense of the Facebook identity as something that follows you all your life is something that many adolescents feel is a burden.
I wanna thank my daughter, Alice, for being the funniest person in my family. For coining phrases like “I want to go to there” and sometimes just putting on pretend make-up in the mirror, and she’ll turn to me and say, “I look like Barack Obama.” She has somehow gotten it in her head that it’s a good thing to resemble a famous politician. I don’t know where she got that idea.
