4 Types of Facebook Posts That Need To Be Stopped Right Now

4 Types of Facebook Posts That Need To Be Stopped Right Now

Because the internet is literally out of control.

So by now, most people have a Facebook, because we're in the year 2018 after all, but since it's beginnings there has been a laundry list of habits on the site that agitate me to no end. I'm sure most of you can agree with me on some of these. For some, I will be specific, but for others, I will be more general.

1. If you're my friend/family...

I've always hated these because they're super expectant and pose ultimatums. People shouldn't have to reach out to you to prove that they are there for you, and someone who really cares would understand when you're busy.

2. Self-depreciating posts.

It especially pisses me off when the person is a literal toothpick and is blemish free. Like, we all have things we don't like about ourselves but after a while seeing this shit gets tiring.

3. The people who like to narrate their day.

I don't care about your artisan ciabatta loaf, farm-raised burger with responsibly sourced potatoes.

4. That "13 Reasons Why" post...

First of all, "13 Reasons Why" is a highly problematic show that glamorizes suicide. Second of all, this is being petty and just begging for attention.

Ariana Grande has simultaneously claimed the top 3 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. This feat hasn't been achieved since the Beatles did it 55 years ago. All three of these songs are from her most recent album, "Thank U, Next." Her No. 1 song is currently "7 Rings," which has been in this spot for 4 weeks now. This song was truly inspiring to a lot of fans, including myself. No. 2 is one of her newest songs, "Break Up With Your Girlfriend I'm Bored." There has been a lot of controversy regarding this song, but it has still found its way to the top. Finally, taking lucky number 3 is her song "Thank U, Next," which moved from No. 7 to No. 3 and has been a leading song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 7 weeks now. Ariana's hit song "Thank U, Next" has been an all-time favorite for most Arianators since it first came out in early November. I personally could not be more inspired to see the Queen herself take the top 3 spots.

The last time this happened was in 1964 when the Beatles lead with their top 5 hits: "Can't Buy Me Love," "Twist and Shout," "She Loves You," "I Want to Hold Your Hand", and "Please Please Me."

While the Beatles may have been hot stuff 55 years ago, Ariana definitely has them beat in this day in age.

After this major outbreak, Ariana's career has hit an all-time high in less than 24 hours. Her music video views have increased tremendously and so have her followers. However, Ariana's songs are still competing against the song "Without Me" by Halsey, which has been on the Billboard Top 100 List for 19 weeks now and was No. 1 for 3 weeks. Right behind "Without Me" is "Sunflower" by Post Malone, which has been on the list for 17 weeks and was also the No. 1 spot for a couple of weeks. With just these two songs, Ariana has a lot of competition and the pressure to keep the top 3 spots is going to be very important for her if she wants to continue going forward with her career.

Does Ariana deserve the record she just broke, taking the spot from the famed Beatles? Is her music truly worthy of being compared to legends like Michael Jackson? Some seem to think so, while others argue that her fame is helped along by today's social media influence.

While Ariana creates outstanding music, not everyone is a fan. However, because of today's social media influences, these people are now exposed to her music even more. From Instagram to Twitter, Ariana's music is posted everywhere by all of the Arianators in the world. Even people who have no idea who she is or what her songs are called listen to her simply because she's 'popular' and nowadays popularity plays a huge role in what people think they like versus what they actually like. Yes, I love Ariana Grande's songs simply because I enjoy them, but this isn't the case for all of her 'fans.'

Now there is only one question that remains, "Has Ariana's career hit its peak or will she be able to uphold this title and stay in the top 3?"

1. "7 Rings" by Ariana Grande

"7 Rings" has been the leading song for 4 weeks now. It is indeed a jam.

2. "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" by Ariana Grande

"Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" is now ranked the No. 2 song. Some love this song while others argue that it sends the wrong message, especially to her younger fans.

3. "Thank You, Next" by Ariana Grande

"Thank You, Next" moved from No. 7 to No. 3 and spent 7 weeks as the No. 1 spot when it was first released in November. It's views on YouTube continue to climb while many praise her for her unique and creative approach.

In conclusion, all hail the Queen herself.

In The Words Of Casting Crowns, My Life Will Be For 'Only Jesus'

"Only Jesus" by Casting Crowns has inspired me to live my life for Jesus.

853

When I watch the music video for Casting Crowns "Only Jesus" I am reminded of the reason why we are on this earth, alive, breathing air through our lungs, our hearts beating, and time going on and on.

We are on this earth, not to seek our own glory, our own accolades, and our own selfish greed, but to know God, love God, and to make Him known in this world, through sharing how God's son Jesus has set us free from our sinful lives and has resurrected us spiritually.

At the beginning of the video, we see Mark Hall, the lead singer of Casting Crowns, driving down a road, eventually driving into a junkyard. The junkyard is both a setting for the music video and an allegory. The junkyard is allegorical to show that everything we obtain in this world, both material things and in achieving our own selfish pursuits of self-glory, self-pride, and self-adulation, will one day rot away and decay into nothingness.

No one will remember you in 500 years when you are dead and gone. The only exception to this is if you do something spectacular with your life that makes you famous. Only then will people remember what you did, not the person that you really was.

But living for Jesus and dedicating our lives to the "good fight" is the everlasting legacy we should pass on.

We should be remembered how we dedicated every minute of our lives being fishers of men for Jesus. When Christian men and women live this way, their children learn about God's love, which in turn causes them to surrender their lives to God, then passing God's love to their children, repeating this infinite loop of love for all time until Jesus comes back. Only Jesus is eternal. Only His love is eternal.

So when I die, "I don't want to leave a legacy. I don't care if they remember me, only Jesus."

Because my Lord Jesus Christ, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit is the only thing that matters.
