Being a young adult in this society is challenging and tiresome.
With all of the opportunities we have handed to us, our most difficult decision in life can be deciding which one to take. Do I go to the college my parents paid for my admittance into? Or do I travel the world with all that free money instead? With all of these decisions, we young adults need a little guidance.
And what better place to seek that advice than the social media site that promotes the diary entries I call journalism?
Facebook quizzes have recently taken the media platform by storm, and after testing out a few, I decided it was time to listen to the randomly-generated answers instead of my heart. I broke up with my long-time boyfriend and admitted my feelings for the Facebook friend I was randomly matched with via the love quiz.
While he hasn't yet responded to my Facebook message, I am confident our love will grow unlike my previous relationship that was built on unrealistic things -- such as human interaction.
I also decided that I would let Facebook tell me what career path to choose since I couldn't decide a major and spent all my time writing for the Odyssey anyway. After carefully analyzing my profile, one Facebook quiz decided my personality was most like that of Scarlett Johansson (a.k.a the sexiest woman alive), and if Scar-Jo can do it, so can I!
I am happy to announce that I will be dropping out of college to pursue an acting career. I just knew that middle school play would come in handy one day, and it turns out Facebook knew it all along, too! If I had only had the courage to listen to Facebook quizzes sooner...
While some people out there may scoff at my decision, I am confident in the answers Facebook has provided me. I have yet to receive such solid and trustworthy advice from a real human, as I feel there is no way for them to understand my inner-most desires like the Facebook quizzes do when they search through my profile.
I suppose a friend or family member could simply read the profuse amount of personal information I have posted in recent months, but who has time for that anyway?
If you're a young adult struggling through the difficult world we live in today and are in need of some advice for your future, I highly recommend you log onto Facebook and take some quizzes. What you find might surprise you, and when you're done, you can share this post with some emojis to show just how much it has affected you.
