Do we need to capture every moment of our lives on camera?

I've noticed a funny trend among the younger tweens/teens/young adult crowd. They capture every single moment of their lives on camera. Seriously, have you noticed this? More specifically, they take pictures of themselves constantly. For example, they take pictures of themselves in front of the mirror to show them getting ready to go out, showing off a new outfit, showing themselves in their dorm room, showing them and their friends in the mall, etc., etc.

I thought about this the other day and wondered, are young people just more vain than ever or is a world of technology and documenting their lives all they've ever known? (Probably the latter, and I'm guessing they would probably be aghast to find out I got my first smart phone at 33 and had never been on the Internet until I was a freshman in college. Yikes!)

So I decided to see what the hype was all about with documenting our lives, so on New Year's Eve I took a lot of photos of myself. This has to be fun, right?

Nothing says "I'm going to work out" like showing off a muscle and having a pout. (True, even adults post these kinds of pics, and sometimes they pull up their shirt to show off their abs.)

I even got Mike in on the action! He felt like a pout was the way to go too.
Here's me all ready to go out! I should probably post this to Facebook so I get a lot of compliments and "likes."
Oh snap! Did I show you how my behind looks?
Hmm, I wonder how well Mike cleaned up. Oh wait, here's proof he looks good!
And our friend Casey? Yep, he looks good too.
Wait, should Mike wear his sunglasses at night with an open mouth? I say yes!
Hmm, I wonder how I look in our friend's bathroom. I'll find out!
Back home after the New Year's Eve party. Goodnight friends! (I'll have to make sure to post pics of what I eat for breakfast tomorrow morning.)

    This was highly entertaining! I doubt the masses have your clever captions though.
