Humiliating seems by far the most accurate, though I agree it does somewhat imply it being public.

comment Word for the “life/world” outside phone calls, text messages, and the Internet?
... what do you mean by "was"? The use of "IRL" is incredibly common today.

comment Word for the “life/world” outside phone calls, text messages, and the Internet?
@Nicole If you want people to understand what you mean when you make up a word, you'd better aim for something that can be properly pieced together from its linguistic meaning. "Outernet" sounds, to me, like some sort of network separate from the Internet but still in the digital world.

Other than what you've mentioned (and the converses) there's not really a better way to put it. Which one you want to use is really up to you and what you want to emphasize.

comment Etymology of “high” and “low” notes

Both being plural or singular sound right to me, one of each does not.

You should ask this or maybe simpler questions first on http://ell.stackexchange.com/. Nothing about the sentence makes sense or is grammatical.
