I don’t understand the internet, really, and I just sort of tweet and post on tumblr and promote myself completely shamelessly on Facebook.
But, like, I am a little bit self-centered (ahem) and the internet sort of feeds my potentially narcissistic tendencies.
I probably lean a little too hard into the idea that if you are self-aware and acknowledge your shortcomings, that somehow makes those shortcomings less problematic?
Is narcissism a shortcoming is really the question here, right?
Or instead, is it a shortcoming that will make me famous?
