Remember to enjoy Labor Day really fucking hard because it’s a holiday that celebrates the wage laborer, aka the mortal enemy of the Koch Brothers. Labor Day = Koch Brothers’ own Black Friday.

I’m burned out on everyone’s negativity. I follow way too many people and it was fine except Twitter is becoming like Facebook: it’s not people sharing themselves, it’s users distributing pre-packaged content; the arguments over political issues never solve anything. Any kind of controversy bogs Twitter down for a 24 hour cycle of hacky jokes on one subject.
Also I’m mad at myself. One day I was like “Oh man, I wish I had kissed more peoples’ asses and stopped tweeting 50 times a day and why am I not getting more retweets!!!!” And what I realized is that, as always, the problem isn’t other people and what they do or how or why or to whom, but my own attitude. I let myself care about something I haven’t earned. I forget that an unusually large number of people signed up to see what I do and they owe me nothing, just as I owe them nothing. So I’m punishing myself for caring way too much about things that are not important.
My hope is that Twitter is over, just like Facebook is over (I’ve been off FB since April.) I love everything social media has done for my life and the people it’s put me in contact with and the friends I gained, but it’s pretty joyless. I’ll be back, I always come back.
