Having haters is totally a form of self-validation.
12. It also really helped noticing that the person who ‘Failed’ me also ‘Failed’ everyone else’s posts, except for his/her own.

For the record, I also agree with the author of the “Drake and Rihanna” post. Rhi-Rhi’s bangs are perfect. And for anyone who hasn’t seen those photos from that 18 year old, you’re seriously missing out on some amazing stuff!
