13 Times You Were Basic On Instagram

But first, let me take a selfie.

Let’s face it, if you have an Instagram, you’ve made at least one or two “basic” posts. We’re all guilty of it, don’t try to tell me you haven’t done any of these.

1) The foodie pic

There’s a lot of hatred toward the people who pull out their phones for every meal they have, but you can’t say you haven’t thought about doing it yourself at least once or twice.

2) The hiking pic

Wipe that sweat off and pose, girls! It’s selfie time, and heaven forbid that your followers know that you actually perspire during exercise.

3) The classic selfie

A.K.A. the epitome of basic, but hey, your eyeliner is on point, and your hair is catching the perfect amount of sunshine. How could you not want to share that with the world?

4) The family pic

These ones flood Instagram over the holidays. #Blessed

5) The birthday collage

You know this one. The one that pops up from one friend or another on a regular basis talking about how AHHH-mazing they hope their BFF’s birthday is. Sometimes you just need to gush about how great your bestie is.

6) The squad pic

If you and your friends get all dressed up and don’t post about it on Instagram, did it really happen?

7) The coffee pic

Latte art is cute and we all know it.

8) The “Look, I’m traveling” pic

Whether you’re posing by the Leaning Tower of Pisa or tanning in the Bahamas, you know you spent the majority of your vacation trying to choose the perfect picture to post.

9) The beach pic

The sand and ocean are pretty, and not taking a picture on the beach is just, like, a crime against humanity.

10) The sunset pic

Similar to the beach, sunsets are nice and they just kinda put you in a good mood. I’d double tap that.

11) The picture expressing how much you just love your dog

Puppies are adorable. It’s a scientific fact.

12) The duck face you made in middle school and never deleted from your feed

I personally just went through my Instagram and deleted that one. Yikes. Middle school was an awkward time of life.

You know, just in case you needed to remind the world that you’re not only totally cool now, but you also used to be very cool five months ago.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
