I Celebrate The Era Of Social Media Aestheticism

I Celebrate The Era Of Social Media Aestheticism

Picking the right filter is basically a career.

Welcome to 2019. The era where 17-year-old girls with aesthetically pleasing Instagram feeds make as much money as doctors. Where teenage YouTubers are driving Teslas and wearing exclusively brand name clothing. Formal education is no longer necessarily an asset, and the ways to make a name for yourself are growing with each new social media platform.

The bottom line: aesthetic. It is human nature to desire sensual pleasure, and successful Instagram influencers have taken advantage of that fact. All things pleasing to the human eye have been incorporated to create marvelous Instagram "feeds" in which the colors of each individual photo complement one another to create an all-around work of art. It surely gets you noticed, and it is a very powerful way to gain exposure, whether you are a business owner, an artist, an influencer, a traveler, a blogger, a creator, or simply just a dog lover.

It is not only Instagram that can take credit for this surge of aestheticism. YouTube videos of vast artistic composure have taken over the web and catapulted many overnight internet celebrities into the hearts of the public. Whether it be a sequence of their morning routine, an overview of their travels, or simply a play-by-play of their daily lives, many teenage high schoolers have surged into prominence through the use of artistic videography. Our visual and auditory senses are fulfilled by these "montages," and these artistic sequences have earned many regular people essential celebrity status.

Creating, compiling, editing, uploading. That is the routine of these social media influencers' lives. It seems almost unimaginable to many that a person's only responsibility in a day is to inform their Snapchat followers what they're up to. But traditional occupations are no longer the only way to earn a steady or even a large income. Society is steadily growing more non-conventional, creative, and digital. Combining aesthetic creativity with the resources of the time can grant one more success than they may imagine.

It is mind-boggling to some, maybe even angering to others the ways which we have evolved, but in my viewpoint, it is a beautiful thing that creativity and artistry are being celebrated in such a big way. For all of those who don't quite fit into a traditional school environment or who dread the concept of a desk job more than life itself, there are is now a world of amazing alternatives.

Maybe in this day and age, media majors, art enthusiasts, and college dropouts will be celebrated for everything else that they have to offer. For their differences, their crazy ideas, and their non-conventional viewpoints. People have proven that you don't have to be pre-med to be something in this world or to be respected by society. People are using their talents to make beautiful and unique things, and these things are being fully embraced. For all of this, I truly celebrate the era of aesthetic.

    Social Media Helps Me Stay In Touch With My Best Friends That Are Hundreds Of Miles Away

    I miss my best friends so much — this article finna be cheesy.

    265

    I've always had friends that live in different countries where I talk to them once a month or so and just keep in touch with them lightweight. When my senior year of high school came around, I didn't know how I would survive without talking to my best friends, Sofi and Emily, and seeing them every single day of my life. They are my whole heart and whenever it got closer to them leaving, I would literally panic and would just pretend the day would never come.

    I am now a sophomore in college and Emily lives in South Carolina while Sofi is all the way in Venezuela. Yes, Venezuela. You would think that we'd drift away and that our friendship would fall apart, but that's NOT the case. Thanks to social media we technically talk to each other every day as if nothing has changed. We are all still just as funny and get along as if parting away was yesterday. We have a Snapchat group chat where we update each other on our lives and show each other what's going on in the life of Neha, Emily, or Sofi.

    We haven't felt as though we are ever lacking in communication and aren't the type to over communicate either. Thanks to Memories on Snapchat, we are always reminded of how strong our bond is and how ugly we were in high school (they both have had their glow ups and I'm still waiting for mine, smh). We have group chats on Instagram and Twitter and send each other the craziest of things that we can't really ever send to anyone else because our friendship is just so unique (at least that's what it's like for me) oh and our humor is so stupid hahaha.

    We've introduced each other to our friends in college and they are aware of the three of us which I think is so cute. Long distance relationships are so doable thanks to the social media that we have, it's just so easy to maintain that connection whether it be one person or a group of besties. We were told in high school that the friendships that we had then would not continue when we'd get to college. Well quite frankly, that's some utter bulls***.

    Friendships can last if you put in the effort, and social media is available to help you out in doing just that.
