Instagram Bios

Being in Malaysia, around the wide spread need for wifi and my cousin's tumblr photo obsessions has rubbed off on me.  I'm now a little too Instagram obsessed.  It's not my personal Instagram that I'm obsessed with.  It's my other ones. 

I have one for this blog, which I had before the trip anyway.  @thelifeoflittleme  I mean, when I first got it I was pretty obsessed, and now I guess Malaysia has rekindled that.  I'm posting more than ever.

My cousin also has this joint photography account with her friends, where they post very tumblr looking images with irrelevant deep quotes as the captions.  At first I thought it was stupid.  But then, after taking some very nice shots of my own and looking back at some of my spontaneous tumblr photo shoots, I decided to make one too. @turquoisedecember  Please don't judge.  It's mostly a spam of pretty pictures and quotes.

Anyway, that isn't the point of my post today.  What I was going to say is that after browsing Instagram for a while, I noticed that some accounts have very creative, relatable or knowledgeable bios, and I'd like to share them with you (minus the very effective emojis, which is unfortunate).


An epic battle between caring too much and not caring at all

I broke up with my gym... We just weren't working out

The rest of the world was in black and white but I was in screaming colour

Live the life you've always imagined

too glam to give a damn

Eat it or beat it

You know my username, not my password

Oh the frigid wind of teenage rebellion

Wondering when manners will become the next trend

Call me beep me if you want to reach me

Don't play hard to get... Play hard to forget

How can I be ready for the future when I'm not even ready to get up in the morning :]

Act like a lady.  Think like a boss.

The only club I get down at is club penguin

I've always been afraid of losing people I love.  Sometimes I wonder if there's anyone afraid to lose me

To die would be an awfully big adventure

"I don't know how to put this but I'm kind of a big deal" - Ron Burgundy

Go to heaven for the climate and hell for the company

I once heard a wise man say, 'don't raise your voice.  Improve your argument.'

A misfit isn't a misfit among misfits

No expectations, no disappointments

Success is the best revenge

"You want weapons?  We're in a library.  Books are the best weapons in the world." - Doctor Who

"In order to be irreplaceable one must be different" - Coco Chanel

The number of followers you have doesn't matter because Hitler had millions and Jesus had 12

I wish that all your dreams come true... But don't forget nightmares are dreams too

Helium walks into a bar and the barman says, we don't serve Nobel gases here.  Helium doesn't react.

They say keep following your dreams so I'm gonna keep sleeping

"Darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream" - Taylor Swift

We're not taking selfies.  we're just being dramatic on camera

maybe you'll fight fire with fire, maybe you'll let yourself burn

Life is simple.  But we insist on making it complicated

If being afraid is a crime, we hang side by side ..

It's always darkest before the dawn

Lactose intolerant so I'm not allowed any milkshakes to bring all the boys to the yard

I'm not crazy my mother had me tested - Sheldon Big Bang Theory

wanted: all the gossip

7 billion people.  14 billion faces.

You can tell a lot about a person from their biography

"It's a new art form showing people how little we care" - Lorde

Life's like a camera: focus on the important things & you'll capture it perfectly

Any awkward situation you find yourself in, there is always someone worse off.  That someone is me.

Your smile could light up New York City after dark

I'd rather be someone's shot of whiskey than anyone's cup of tea

dum dum give me some gum gum

Don't worry about those who talk behind your back.  They're behind you for a reason.

Feeling everything and nothing at the same time

There are more nipples than people in the world

I ship me and money $$$
