It was a mere four years ago…but I remember it like it was yesterday.
First off, you’re probably wondering how I got to this post topic. Well, I decided my Instagram account needed a little clean up because I’m trying to step up my Insta-game and even though I HIGHLY doubt anyone would scroll through 600+ photos but in case they do, I want to be prepared.
So I endlessly scrolled until I hit “229 weeks” ago. And boy did it get ugly. It got so ugly that I could not let these photos go unnoticed – they’re way too epic!
So I screenshot the pic, deleted it, and now I’m sharing it on here. I can’t wait for this you guys. It’s bahaddd. Now, I’m no Instagram expert, but I know these filters, lack of description for questionable pictures, and blurry images are taking advantage of Instagram’s coolness.
Ready? Here we go.
“The Bad Filter Conundrum”
I had the filter world in my hands and I chose the worst options. I was a huge fan, as you can see, of the darker shadowy filters with rounded images. And don’t even get me started on the “vintage polaroid-esque”. I loved that shit. By the way, those are all of the first Instas! ^
Let’s start to break it down a little more.
Did I…Did I seriously just take a picture of Sarah Jessica Parker and Instagram it? Yup, I did. I actually remember this, it was a magazine cover and I had just got my first iPhone so I thought I was hot shiz and could do anything I wanted (news flash: not cool enough to randomly and creepily Instagram random stars you like).
Goodness. Is this really worth throwing out on Instagram? AND THERE’S ZERO DESCRIPTION ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON. Ugh. This is going to annoy me throughout this post. Tell me, were descriptions not available four years ago?? I don’t remember. I hope so, because I could’ve at least said something.
Speaking of, I remember thinking this pic below was the bee’s knees. But oh so blurry now. Be grateful your iPhone photo quality upgrade, kids.
“The Framed Ducks”
Actually, cool picture – funny. But that black frame’s gotta goooo.
“The Shelved Pumpkins”
So many Instagram offenses in this. First of all, why? Second of all, there’s that polaroid frame again. Third of all, WHERE IS THE DESCRIPTION? How can you expect people to take your photo seriously when this makes absolutely zero sense.
Shoutout to Christen for liking this picture!!!! Real Insta-homie right there!
And to roll off “The Shelved Pumpkins” I would like to present to you…
“The Crispy Hexagons”
…If you want to revoke my Instagram card right now, I won’t take offense to it. 218 weeks ago was such a confusing time for me.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, it might have gotten weirder with…
“Toliet Paper Boot”
This really could’ve used a description. I remember this was at Main Street and we were gathering in the big back stall like always and slinging back shooters, laughing, and I guess taking Instagram pictures…Oh my, look at how far we’ve come!
Also! My Insta-homie shining bright once again. THANK YOU CHRISTEN!
But, I saved a good one. This might win the weirdest Instagram picture, and mainly because it doesn’t have a description so it leaves a whole lot of questions.
Yup, I told you it was good. I have no words. Actually, I do. I can explain everything. This was my pottery from high school (surprisingly, I passed the class and went on to make a bust of my head my senior year – I was going places PEOPLE!)
Next up, this slew of disasters.
May I present to you…
Now I want to quickly share my other foodie picks. We’re all victims of food porn, but at least it’s good looking. Mine? Not so much.
“Questionable Fish Taco”
AND I mention it’s from Taco Johns. Nice. How clazzy.
Last, but not least. Another creepy celeb picture Instagrammed.
“MA MAN. Jeezy”
I’ve never done a #mcm (man crush monday) but this is the closest it ever got.
Now I would like to take a moment to thank those who follow me on Instagram and put up with these sometimes questionable, sometimes laughable, sometimes “oh no she did not just post that”. This one’s to you guys!
