Hi! 👋 I’m Jessa.

I blog daily about life, work, and the future.

Facebook world vs. real world

Written in


I don’t know how much of your life you put out on social media. But I think we both agree that the things we post on social media don’t always translate to what happens with our everyday lives.

And that in every happy couple photo you see on your friend’s timeline doesn’t mean that they don’t bicker at all.

In Facebook world, it seems every young adult is at a cool party Saturday night. In the real world, most are at home alone, binge-watching shows on Netflix.

Often, it’s a curated life we wish to live every day.
