What does your Facebook Status say about you?

They say your Facebook Status updates say a lot about who you are as a person. I have really read into this more and more recently as I become increasingly more annoyed with some of the things I read. Some people have no clue how draining their negativity is on Facebook. This is a relatively new problem/debate as social networking such as Facebook and MySpace is still pretty new; it still hasn't been super popular for more than what, 10 years now? They haven't had time to write too many self-help books on the topic. Anyway, I decided I better stop pointing fingers and take a look at myself for a change. Here are my status updates, without editing, since I got my internet back just over a week ago:

Who else misses Baywatch?

My husband cleaned the whole house for me today!! Not unlike him but not common on a Monday! Gracias Raymundo Cruz! Eres lo mejor...

Just sitting here thinking about it, and, the killer in me really IS the killer in you... Wow, I really need to stop listening to Exitos de las 90's.

Listening to Chumbawaba and pissing the night away. You know, singin the songs that remind you of the good times, and the songs that remind you of the better times...

Fried chicken and red wine on a Tuesday night. 'Cause I'm classy like that...

Just realized that I have been reading Wikipedia for 3.5 hours straight! :stuck:

I am so excited for winter. I am going to wear scarves, take my morning nap with a fluffy blanket and eat pot pies for 3 months straight.

‎50 Primeras Citas ♥

I just almost hit a coyote...

My grandmother had her first round of chemo today and I am so inspired by her attitude and outlook on life. I am so proud to be related to her. Keep on keepin' on Grandma!!

went to Kohl's today with my birthday coupon and got the cutest pair of earings for 72 cents. Now if I could just get them in my ears...

Watching Man vs. Food. Bacon Cheeseburger on a Krispy Kreme ♥

I am so happy to have Cablemas back in my life. I get to hear things like, "cuando Behind The Music continua..." in between FB status updates. Sigh... :first world feliz:

Up, feeling good and ready to start the day. Wait... it's 1:30 AM? Crap! Didn't really think through the whole falling asleep at 7 thing now did I?

Talking to my dad and I hear nothing but roosters and helicopters. He's still truckin' in Haiti... It's so nice to talk after 2 weeks without communication!! ♥ Skype.

Dinner will be chicken breasts stuffed with cream cheese, jalapenos and onions, wrapped in bacon. Sides are a spinach and roasted red pepper salad and beans... what should I do with the beans? They are home cooked pintos but I am not sure what to do with them. I'd like to do something different. They are still whole, fresh out of the crock. Any ideas?

I passed =)

And of course Facebook has the cool new feature: On This Day In... which shows me my status updates on this day in the last couple of years:

2009 -

breakfast in bed with soap net :D

2010 -

Dawson's Creek on the Liv Network!! Geez, Mexican cable really caters to a rerun whore such as myself =)

Loving the Sony line-up for today! Beverly Hills 90210, ANTM, Real Housewives of OC... =) PS. I want a dryer and a burrito.

Obviously, I haven't changed much over the years...

So what have I determined with the little project folks? I think it's pretty obvious. I can't believe such a wonderful man married me because I am a disgustingly weird lush who eats too much, watches too many movies, has poor taste in television programs, a goofy sleep schedule, and gets excited over the dumbest things. Oh, and a little solo karoake streak/YouTube marathon never hurt anyone, right?

I could be ashamed or embarassed by this experiment, but, in all honesty, these updates pretty much describe me in a nutshell, whether I like it or not. And so I have decided that I need not care about people's negativity because my irrelevant babbling is equally annoying. I am just as lame as those whiners and quite frankly, I don't care. I may bitch about someone's constant complaining but somewhere out there someone is reading my updates saying, "Seriously? I don't give a crap what you ate for dinner and if you quote one more 90's pop song I am going to figure out how to slit my wrists with my iPad!"

Oh well. They can whine on while I wine on.


  1. I get the feeling this is going to go around the group again too, I'll put it as my blog topic tomorrow :)

  2. I love this little experiment! And I really like your FB Status updates and I think they represent your real-life personality. When I see negative updates, I always wonder if that person is really that negative in real life and many times they are. So sad for them.

    As for my status updates, mine are mostly about food, cleaning and complaining about the things that break down. And reminding people how many shopping days until my birthday. LOL :P

  3. Your status updates are hilarious and uplifting, a welcome relief from all the negatively. You have inspired me to take a look at mine to make sure I am not spreading too much bad mo-jo. Thanks

  4. Its really an excellent post, which seems to be very much interesting as well as informative too.
