Instagram Straight Flexin'

Do you use Instagram? If so, what degree do you identify with the ideas described in the article?

I do use Instagram but I don't put much thought and care into the photos I post like some of the people in the article. I just make sure I keep my profile clean as if my mom would be seeing it. I just put whatever I like on there.

  • The article quotes David Coggins, who says he doesn’t think people should post “trophies,” or photos of expensive things or places few people get to visit. What is your take on this suggestion?
I really don't think it's a problem posting those types of things because if those people can afford expensive things and go places others can't then they should be able to post about it. It makes that person unique and they shouldn't have to worry about what other people think.

Old People 👴👵

  • Do you agree with the author that “adding years to a life doesn’t necessarily make it any fuller?”
    I do agree with the author about this statement because someone lived longer doesn't mean that their life was any more full compared to someone who lived to age 40. I say this because the older you get the more your body starts shutting down or working against you therefore you have less freedom to do what you want. Now this isn't true for all old people but a lot of them end up with their kids or special workers taking care of them, bathing them, changing their diapers. So by dying earlier it doesn't mean you didn't live a full life. 
    • How long would you want to live, if you could choose your life span?
      Personally I'd like to live as long as I could so I can grace people with my presence and share my knowledge and wisdom with the younger generation. But if I were to live really long I'd want to stay in shape so I could be mobile and still do everyday tasks because I wouldn't want someone doing all those things for me.
