Dear GYA, So, now Instagram isn’t going to sell my photos! Damn it, I was gonna make so much money. I thought for sure they were gonna swoop on that black-and-white pic I took of my cat wearing mittens, or at least my entire collection of half-eaten waffles shot with a Lo-Fi filter. Well, hell, is there anything to do today besides sell crap on Instagram?- Michelle Krispinsen, Provo
