Instagram Was Down But I *Still* Didn't Do These 20 Things On My To-Do List

Instagram Was Down But I *Still* Didn't Do These 20 Things On My To-Do List

Facebook and Instagram were down last night from 10 PM to around 4 AM, users were unable to post new content, add Instagram stories, load them or send direct messages. Considering how we love our social media, this was terribly frustrating! Imagine not going through Vicky Kaushal's profile before going to bed. Instagram issued an official apology and all the night owls woke up to a smooth as butter app. On Facebook, the ad section was down and there were some problems with the messenger, both things most users already hate, so it was kind of a win-win situation. 

However, like every other millennial tragedy, this too inspired some iconic memes that made this entire situation somewhat bearable.

It's comforting to know that I'm not the only one. Because as someone who loves her Instagram and is currently logged into five accounts on her phone, Instagram being down left a gaping hole in my schedule. What am I supposed to do with the 2 hours I spend surfing my feed before I go to sleep? So after asking around and doing some much-needed introspection, I made a list of things I could have done when Instagram was down. Things which could have turned out to be way more productive.

things i could have done when instagram was down

1. Read a book 

2. Taken a nap

I think I covered all the tasks I've been procrastinating about and would be a much better use of my time than obsessing over other people's lives.
