Tag Questions!

It’s finally weekend! Papa God, I can’t thank You enough. What a long week!  Few things happened this week. I want to blabber in a very impassioned way, but I won’t, because I cringe every time I stumble upon and read someone’s rant on social media. I don’t want other people feel the same way.

I’m not against it, really. People can obviously do and post whatever they want to because it’s their account and maybe it’s their way of venting out their frustrations. I want to complain or rant, too. Dang! How I wanted to. But I don’t want to complain so much and let many people know what I am complaining about.

It’s not that I haven’t done it before, but those were the days when Facebook was still new to me. I only complained, in a funny way, about the IT blocking some proxy websites. How embarrassing was that!  That was ages ago. I realized, even if it wasn’t a rant and even if I posted it in a funny way, that it was not very appealing at all. Nowadays, I rarely update my Facebook because I have lost interest doing it.

So today, I’ll just entertain myself with simple “Tag Questions.”
