Internet trolls, man.

If someone is bold enough to post a stunning selfie, then I think said human deserves a little respect. It’s just basic internet courtesy. I do not need anyone correcting my grammar on my selfie. You know what I need??? All the trolls to go back to their bridges.

Imagine the celebs. How do they get anything done ever? They have so many hellacious Instagram comments to read! I cry when someone corrects my grammar so God only knows what I’d do if someone commented that I was fugly. How do they get any of their celeb things done when there are haters to go ham on?

Once I finally achieve a level of fame I am comfortable with, I will quit doing whatever I am famous for. I will spend my days perfecting my selfie (I have already done this) & posting new ones to Instagram daily. Then, I wait. Wait for the trolls to leave their posts & comment less than uplifting things on my pictures. Then I will individually roast them all like the little weenies they are.

    I will never understand trolls.
    Never understand why.
    Never understand the incredible sadness and self loathing that must manifest itself in the keyboard warrior hole that should be occupied by a heart.
    It is not natural to be so mean.
    It is not human to want to inflict hurt on others.
    I too am perplexed at the sheer hurtfulness of these people.
    I wish them a grammatically incorrect fade to inexistence and computer chlamydia that Infects their cracks and crevices.

    You girl. ..rock! I love your recipes. I love your humour. I love that you are humble but vulnerable and humorous and headstrong!
    Keep up the great work!
    Love Naomi @sometimesalwaysfood
