Hoodiegate 2012: Mark Zuckerberg’s Signature Sweatshirt Ruffles Feathers On Wall Street

Good for him. Seeing this makes me happy. Way to stick it to those white-haired, stuck up old guys on Wall Street – they’re just mad that he’s done more by the age of 28 than they’ll accomplish in well, their entire lives. ha-ha. Yeah, being dressed up “makes people take you seriously,” but c’mon – I don’t think he has to prove that to anyone here. “Yes, I became a billionaire…in my sweats.”

I guess I like getting dressed up sometimes, but usually I’m uncomfortable at work and can’t wait to get home and change. I live in yoga pants and definitely bum it…a lot. lol Like even when I run out. If I’m not at work, I’m in spandex or sweats, not even sorry. lol So I would do the same thing as Zuckerberg – making it means you make your own rules. Clearly I’m doing something right, so you not taking me seriously because of my clothes is a joke and you look silly. Oh, you don’t want to invest your million dollars because of my hoodie? I’ll go cry about it ON MY YACHT.

Comfort is my middle name – bums unite. A lot of people just need to get over themselves. Ugh, gross with your stupid standards. I’m really not a rebel at all and tend to be conservative/do what you’re supposed to do, but it annoys me when people think they’re better than other people or smarter or whatever. Being in a suit doesn’t make you smart, it just makes you look like it lol Clearly, this guy’s “smarter” than a lot of Wall Street guys. Or maybe some luck is in there too; not just anyone could have launched FB at any time, it kind of all came together for him. But it still takes smarts to keep this thing afloat post-luck. I guess it depends on how you define “smart” too. Like business savvy versus textbook finance/investing mechanics – the dry stuff anyone can do as opposed to really tapping into what’s going on with people, what they want, marketing, etc.

I’m going to channel some of this Zuckerberg-hoodie energy – I actually had a burst of crazy energy last night that wouldn’t let me sleep until I wrote it all down – I really need to put more effort into this starting my own business thing because I have 2 great ideas; I HATE THE CORPORATE WORLD, andd Powerball hasn’t been good to me. I just need to set myself up to walk around in spandex all day – it’s a simple dream, really.

This Woman Is Quitting Facebook: Here’s Why

I love this. And I’ve been off of FB for about 5 weeks now – don’t miss it one bit.

“I don’t mean reading posts about babies taking first steps and people flaunting their engagement ring makes me feel bad.

I mean that the simple act of logging in, scrolling the news feed and posting about something mundane I did isn’t worth my time.”

#2 – exactly why the ex and I were never FB friends – I made it a point to do so. And #1? Goodbye, phone battery. lol I barely have to charge it now…

 

(I have to admit though – FB isn’t some “dangerous” thing like a drug – some people are quite capable of keeping their shit together and using FB like a normal, sane person. But few people actually use it here and there – you’re either all in or nothing at all lol)
