random word of the day: A SELFIE

random word of the day:  A SELFIE – zdjęcie z ręki, autoportret (a picture taken of yourself that is planned to be uploaded to a social networking site; usually featuring the person's arm, a kissy face or the individual looking away from the camera)

(1) I have seen enough selfies this year to last me for the rest of my life.

(2) It’s one thing to take an occasional selfie, but when you are taking a selfie every day or every six hours, then you have a problem.

(3) I got a haircut so I am taking annoying selfies in the gym.

(4) You need to stop with the selfies. You’re out of control.

(5) A typical selfie involves a peace sign and duck lips.

(6) If you didn't already know, Justin is back on Instagram and I can't get enough of his selfies.

(7) I’m not shy when it comes to taking selfies and anyone who follows me on Instagram can vouch for that. My mug pops up at least every couple of days – with or without a duck face.
