Quickhit: Snaps to the Freedom of Ugly Snapchats!

Picture this entirely true scenario:

Friend number 1 and friend number 2 are sitting on the couch watching a movie. It’s a typical not-leaving-the-house, no-makeup-and-greasy-hair-in-a-bun, only-wearing-sweatpants type of day. …You know how it goes. Well, friend number 2 proceeds to hold up her phone in a selfie-like manner that alludes to an attempt to take a picture of the two lounging on the couch, grease balls and all.

Friend 1: Ew, no, I don’t want to be in a picture looking like this!

Friend 2: …It’s a snapchat.

Friend 3: Oh… okay then!

And cue the two ugliest faces the friends could arrange.

So what is this strange anomaly? I’ll tell you: it’s the magic of the Snapchat! And I absolutely love it. The fact that some women always feel the need to look their best and can’t be captured in a picture looking anything but put-together is another topic entirely (one I am particularly guilty of because I may or may not be Friend 2 in this scenario…), but I just

want to draw everyone’s quick attention to how amazing it is that there has finally been an app created that is entirely about looking your absolute worst. What liberating freedom, I say!

Girls, keep sending each other gnarly Snapchats, because, it’s about time you were able to accept and enjoy the non-efforts of this type of picture. In Snapchat world, there are no pretty-rules and no judgment! I mean, I’m not the only one who thinks it’s such a breakthrough in women’s opinions of themselves right? Leave a response and let me know if you enjoy this freedom-of-non-pretty-picture-taking as much as I do!
