Oversharing
I've probably erred on the side of telling people a bit too much about my day-to-day, particularly on the Internet. I've made peace with this, and just hope it doesn't bite me in the arse one day. I think I'm okay though.

How about you? Where do you draw the line? Do you have a line?

I think the Internet, rather than expanding what people care to share, has made people more sensitive. I'd say overly sensitive. I blame lazy journalism and their fixation with social media.

As evident from this debacle five years ago.

This below image has absolutely nothing to with the above post. Absolutely nothing.

I'm all for oversharing. I'm paraphrasing here but Margaret Cho says it best. You have to overshare, there's no such thing as crossing the line, there should be no line, the "line" leads to a white picket fence world where everyone needs to conform. Put your life out there and everyone else can see that we're all equally fucked up and there's nothing to be ashamed of.

I have zero shame about what I choose to do for shits and giggles. And I get a laugh out of sharing it.

Shits and giggles is a good way of putting it.
Not sure what prompted me to start this thread. Just seems people are overly cautious these days.

I'll be sure to revisit this thread after my 2 weeks in Berlin in June. Things are most definitely gonna happen.

My friends in London and I used to text each other saying "boom city" if we picked up and got laid. This was often done whilst in the act

Lol I remember when I was at Uni, I picked up this girl and went home with her, then she answered her phone while we were having sex the next morning an had a conversation with one of her mates mid-shag. I found it inexplicably arousing.

Also Marshy, how the fuck do not have any sordid Orchard Towers war stories for us? Four Floors of Whores with trannies in the elevators... you've gotta have something to tell us.

I'm quite open with people about my having had issues with depression and anxiety and taking antidepressants for this reason.
I know some people would say it's too personal but fuck that, if we don't talk about it then the stigma remains.

Dunno if that really qualifies as oversharing though, probably just sharing.
You can't help that. We're all mad here

I always overshare, most of the time its when people get pushy and give me 20 questions.

Like my boss the other day:
"you're taking a sickie because you are a lazy shit, I know you are"
"no I'm taking a sickie because...."


Thats for being a dick about it.

I have been the queen of oversharing in recent weeks.
Went out for drinks after work a few weeks ago, then again last week and I got in a very oversharing mood:

I have been having some lady issues of late, and a friend and I made a song about it, and decided to share the story, which I am also doing to you now.
To the tune: Dont go breaking my Heart - Elton John

"Dont go scraping my C word, dont go scraping my, I wont go scraping your c word"

Nothing seems to embarrass me anymore.

Also, what someone else said earlier. I'm in a somewhat non-exciting period of my life which leaves very little to be overshared. It seems like regular sharing. White-picket fence style.

Last night I had a dream that I was taking a shit and missed the bowl and there was shit everywhere and I tried to pick it up with my hands and then I fell over and woke up. THE END. <----- the most interesting thing that has happened for MONTHS
