What It’s Like To Be Obsessed With Your Snapchat Streaks


What It’s Like To Be Obsessed With Your Snapchat Streaks

Snapchat has been taking the world by storm basically since the moment it was created. Between their array of filters, featured stories and news, and their newest update, snap map, the company surely knows how to keep users interested and on their toes. One of the more popular features of Snapchat is the Snapchat streak, which means two people have Snapped each other within 24 hours for a specific number of consecutive days. For some people, Snapchat streaks are too much of a commitment and a burden they are not able to handle. But there are certainly individuals who take their streaks very seriously…

1. It’s not just a habit, it’s a responsibility.

Those flames don’t create themselves. You gotta work for it. It might sound easy, but one of the thrills of being obsessed with your streaks is the level of dedication it requires to continue them.

2. The first thing you do every morning is make sure your Snappers know you are alive and well.

Tip: One of the easiest ways to keep your streaks is to Snapchat every morning basically before you do anything else. Who cares if you’re still in bed and look like a mess? Not your Snap streak friends, cause they’re probably doing the same exact thing!

3. When you’re committed to a Snap streak but the other person is not.

People need to understand the risks of committing to a streak with someone fully invested in it. If it goes downhill, the whole relationship could be ruined. Grudges are certainly held against those who disappoint by forgetting to Snapchat.

4. That mini panic attack you get when you see the timer emoji.

On the verge of a mental breakdown, you immediately send thousands of pictures of yourself with every imaginable filter and the caption “Keep the streak.”

5. And then the relief you feel when it goes away.

Whew, that was a close one.

6. The horror and disappointment you feel when you lose a really long streak.

There is a part of you that doesn’t want to freak out because you think, hey, it’s not a big deal, right? But it is. The moment you realize a streak has disappeared makes your heart sink and from then on you make the pledge to never let it happen again.

7. The agony of relying on someone else to keep streaks for you.

If you have had your phone taken away/broken, you understand this one. Giving out your Snapchat password might as well be you signing away your life to another person. There is so much responsibility loaded onto this task and many people fail. For those who keep the streaks for their friends, know you are a true hero.

8. The pride you feel when you hit the 100/365-day mark.

The number of screenshots of Snapchat streaks on your phone is absurd.

9. Having streaks with people who you don’t even talk to in real life.

Strictly professional. It’s certainly an interesting type of relationship. But in 2017, it’s not rare. People are willing to take and send pictures of themselves with ridiculous filter masks on more than they would be willing to actually have a real, face-to-face conversation with them. Way to kill it out there, Millennials.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
