FaceApp because we learned nothing from Cambridge Analytica

These past few weeks have been good and bad. Let me explain. Two weeks ago my chinchilla Maurice got ill and died suddenly. This was after I had gone through a few tough weeks where my hedgehog Axel wasn’t going to make it, but luckily pulled through and is doing fine now. Losing a pet is so tough and I miss that furball like crazy. Work has been going well with some positive changes and I’ve had some amazing freelance opportunities. I got to go away with my family to Mabula and we had fun celebrating my sibling’s birthday. I guess in the words of Billy Talent “Cause this is how it is and this is how it goes”. Now that I have that off of my chest, here is all you need to know about FaceApp and more.

People have been sharing this on Twitter and just watching it gives me anxiety

An Instagram Star put her bathwater up for sale & people are not only buying it but drinking it too!

Bell.Delphine or Gamer Girl (4.5m followers) sold her bathwater in bottles for $30 and it sold out immediately! Apparently, it was all for the thirsty gamers out there.

By now you’ve probably seen what your friends, family, and acquaintances will look like when they get old thanks to FaceApp. We even tried it at the office and I look like what can only be described as a tannie. I was horrified and decided to NOT send it to my BF so he couldn’t see what the ghost of Christmas come had to offer. I looked terrifying. Some celebs, however, looked much better.

But these win…

I personally didn’t download the app, but a lot of colleagues had. And then I saw the “The Russians have data on over 150 million people” and “Read the terms and conditions before downloading the app”. So I decided to go Walter Cronkite and become an investigatory journalist.
