Appreciate The Little Things [Part 11]

They always say to appreciate the little things in life, but sometimes, it the little things that drive you absolutely crazy!

Parts 1-10

  • Reese’s stick to the wrapper. You know what I’m talking about. All you want is for your Reese’s cup to come out of the wrapper cleanly. But it doesn’t work. There’s always a chunk of chocolately goodness that gets ripped off and left on the wrapper. Of course, you lick it off. You wouldn’t want that piece of chocolate to go to waste; there are starving children. Honestly, why hasn’t anyone come up with a way to prevent this from happening? The chocolate on the wrapper, I mean, not the starving children. Tons of people are working on that, thankfully. Poor starving children.
  • The lock on the bathroom stall. Now, I know what you’re thinking, this could go to any number of places. It doesn’t quite reach the wall. It’s jammed. It doesn’t line up properly. It turns the wrong way. It doesn’t exist. Honestly, is it too much to ask for a lock that works? I expect this is more annoying for women than for men because there’s usually a line in the women’s room, and a lock that doesn’t work means a stall that’s not being used. JUST FIX THE LOCKS!
  • Fruit cup lids. Who designed those? Why can’t I open the fruit cup without spilling it all over everything. I know, if you peel it slowly and carefully you might not splash as much. But I shouldn’t need to be trained in disarming a bomb to open a fruit cup. I’m trying to be healthy and fruit cup manufacturers aren’t helping.
  • YouTube ads.  Anyone who spends hours on YouTube just groaned. I don’t mind ads, especially if they are helping the creators of the videos, but give me an option to skip the long ones. And don’t show me the same ad on twenty-five consecutive videos. And I should be exempt from having to watch it if it has to buffer. I didn’t want to watch the ad in the first place, I certainly don’t want to wait for it to buffer. I’m fairly certain I’ve talked about YouTube ads before, but this is infuriating.
  • Cancelling TV shows. Now, I understand that every show ends eventually. That’s fine. But give me closure. I get it, you have to end the show because no one is watching it and you could put another show on in that slot and make more money. But chances are there were a bunch of people attached to the characters and interested in the plot. Cancelling a TV show without providing any closure is ending an action movie in the middle of the big car chase. Finish out the initially scheduled season and let the few viewers come to peace with the end of the show.

That’s all for this time!  Part 12 is coming soon!

Appreciate the Little Things [Part 10]

Parts 1-9

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. I’ve been thinking… why is it that ranting is so much fun?

  • Revving engines – Why? Why do people do this? Are you looking for attention? Do you just enjoy being irritating? What is the purpose? It doesn’t make you seem cool. When you’re stopped at a light, and you instruct your vehicle to make obnoxious sounds to show off, or whatever, its just annoying. Think of it like this: you’re waiting in line at the bank, grocery store, or where ever it is that you find yourself in a line with strangers, and you just start shouting, and making noises. The people in the line don’t say, “Wow, look at that guy. Isn’t he cool? I wish I could make a fool of myself in public.” No, it’s more like, “Well, I’m not sure if something is wrong with this individual, or maybe they want attention? Should I call the police? This person seems a little strange.” Long story short, you’re not cool, people aren’t envious or jealous of you, they just want you to stop.
  • Nice weather during the work week – Have you ever noticed how it’s always warm and sunny while you’re stuck in the office, or classroom, and then when the weekend, or your day off comes, it rains? Why, nature, why? I feel like I’m always stuck inside for nice weather. I make plans to have a picnic, or do something fun outdoors, and its cold, overcast, and threatening rain. If someone has an in with mother nature, please forward this complaint.
  • Misspelling websites – For those of you who don’t know, if you misspell a commonly used website, you’ll likely be redirected to a porn site, or a survey that won’t allow you to leave the page. Is this really necessary? I remember when I was younger, my friends and I were trying to access nickelodeon online, and being six years old, misspelled the web address. That, ladies and gentlemen, was the first time I ever viewed porn. To be fair, websites like facebook and twitter have bought similarly spelled pages and have them redirect to the actual page now. But honestly, who puts porn on a website that children could accidentally end up on?  What is wrong with people?
  • When your spoon falls into your soup – I know this has happened to you before. You put your spoon in your bowl and it disappears into your soup. Then you have to fish around in your food to find your wet, sticky spoon. Do you go rinse it off? Do you use a napkin? Do you try to play it off like it never happened? I’m sure there’s some awkward contraption you can attach to either the spoon of the bowl to prevent this, but honestly, it’s 2015, where are the hover spoons?
  • Stickers that don’t peel off – you buy some nice new item and try to peel the sticker off but it just rips. Then you think you can out-smart it and pull from another corner, but it just rips again. Then you’re left with the center of the sticker still on the book, looking like a mess. Plus, you have sticky residue left from where the edges peeled off. You know that’s just going to collect dust and turn black and gross. I have this problem with textbooks a lot. If you buy or rent books online they come decked out in “used book” and “rental” stickers from numerous different companies. I always try to peel them off just to make the book look a little nicer. BUT IT NEVER WORKS PROPERLY. Again, it’s 2015, why haven’t these disrespectful stickers been replaced?

As many of you may know, ranting continuously will only create more stress and anger. To keep my blood pressure at a safe level, I’m going to stop for now.

Appreciate the Little Things [Part 9]

So, I’ve been slacking on these. I’ve been slacking on blogging as a whole. I figured this would be a fun way to get back into things. Find parts 1-8 here.

Let’s get started.

  • YouTube ads. I don’t know if you watch YouTube, but I watch it all the time. The most annoying thing is the ads. To be fair, I understand why they are there and all of that. I don’t really mind watching the ads either, but when the ads takes fifteen minutes to load, I start to get annoyed. I’ve also encountered entire music videos as ads before. And there was no skip button. Unless there is a skip button, the ads should be limited to thirty seconds. I would also like a variety in the advertisements. If I’m watching a playlist, or just a bunch of videos, I don’t want to watch the same ad between every video. Of course, the easiest solution is to download adblock, but then the creators don’t make any money, and that doesn’t seem fair. I just want to hold onto my sanity while watching YouTube.
  • Gum Chewers. First of all, gum kind of grosses me out. You’ve been chewing on that piece for who knows how long, and there’s who knows how much bacteria in that, and ew. But honestly, I don’t care if you want to chew it. I just don’t want to see it, or hear it. Keep your mouth closed while you chew on it. This topic was touched on in part 8 with noisy eaters. It’s really not that difficult to close your mouth while you’re chewing. But that’s not the only thing that annoys me about gum chewers. I haven’t encountered this as much recently, but I always seemed to be surrounded by gum addicts. They’d hear someone open a pack of gum and suddenly, they were trying to become that persons friend in exchange for a piece. Is gum really that great? And if it is, why don’t you buy your own pack? What do they cost? $0.89? I guess I’d rather people be addicted to gum than meth.
  • Slow walkers. I typically walk pretty quickly, but I understand wanting to go a little slower, for whatever reason. Just don’t walk in the middle of the sidewalk. On days when I’m tired in the morning, or I’m sore from whatever, and I want to go slower, I try to walk on the edge of the sidewalk, leaving room for others to pass. But every time I want to walk quickly, because I’m running late, or meeting someone, I seem to get stuck behind some group of guys, whose pants are around their knees, preventing them from moving faster than a turtle. And they tend to take up the entire sidewalk.  Like, move! I don’t mean to sound rude, and I understand that sometimes people can’t move faster, but try to be considerate of those around you!
  • Rude smokers. If you smoke, please be considerate. I don’t really care if you want to destroy your respiratory system, but please don’t destroy mine. That twenty-five feet rule is in place for a reason. People don’t want to walk through a cloud of toxins to get into a building. Please do not stand near an entrance. Walking and smoking is also rude. Do you realize that when you blow out that smoke, it goes right into the face of the person behind you? What if they have asthma, or are allergic to cigarette smoke? you could cause serious problems for them. I’m not going to sit here and tell you that cigarettes are bad for you, and blah, blah, blah, but do you realize that you are giving a considerable chunk of your income to a company whose product causes cancer? That’s pretty dumb.
  • Packaging. You know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s excessive. Why it is necessary to package air fresheners in vacuum sealed, indestructible plastic? I was trying to open a pack of razor head replacements recently and it took me a good twenty minutes with a pair of scissors to actually get to the product. Why? WHY? And how many times have you been trying to open something and ended up hurting yourself trying to break through the packaging? I’m convinced that a lot of things would survive an atomic bomb with all the packaging. Just earlier today I was trying to break down an empty box to put in recycling and the amount of glue used to hold the bottom of the box together would have been sufficient for an entire kindergarten classes’ art projects. Why is that necessary?

That’s all for now! There will be more in the future!

Appreciate the Little Things [Part 8]

I realize that when I started this ‘series’ I posted like three in one month, and after that they became incredibly spread out. I hope to post a few of these this summer to get back on track. I have a long(ish) list of these little nuggets of rant lined up and waiting to go. I’m going to continue to post five at a time as that has given a pretty good amount in the past.

Find previous parts here : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7!

Let’s get started!

 

  • Automated Phone Service/Customer Support. This is terrible. How many times have you called your phone company, or your credit card company, or whoever, and had to sit through their customer service message pushing buttons for an hour. Press 1 for this, press 2 for that, press 3 for this other irrelevant thing. You sit through all of these instructions only to find that your problem wasn’t mentioned. So what do you do now? press the button that corresponds to the closest thing and see if you can get somewhere in the next set of instructions? What a pain.
  • The “0” Option. Some of those customer service messages give you the option to press 0 and talk to a person if you none of the options help with your problem. However, more and more of those annoying recorded messages are getting rid of that option. You will be forced to push thousands of buttons, to no avail. As companies are dropping this option, they are adding the ability to say a keyword having to do with your problem. That seems nice, you can just say what your problem is. That’s all good if you don’t mind repeating yourself fifty times.
  • Noisy Eaters. You all know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, you’re probably the problem. Anyway, nothing bother’s me more about eating with other people, than having to listen to them smack their lips or chew loudly. Seriously, all of that noise can be silenced if you just keep your mouth closed while you chew. It’s not even difficult to do. I don;t really want to listen to you eat. It sounds disgusting and it’s quite annoying if there is conversation going on. Didn’t your parents ever teach you to chew with your mouth closed?
  • Talking Obnoxiously Loud on the Phone. Don’t do it. Just stop. If your phone rings while you’re in the grocery store, stop and think, “Do I really need to answer this right now?” Here’s a hint: The answer isn’t always ‘yes’. If it’s someone you live with, they might be asking you to get something for them. You can answer that. If it’s your boss, you should probably answer that as well. A repair man, a mechanic, someone you are doing business with, that’s all fine, answer it. But your bff who is just calling to talk, yeah, that can wait. So, if you decided you better answer this phone call in the grocery store, you don’t need to shout. You can talk quietly. Remember in grade school when the teacher always said to use your inside voice? Yeah, that still applies. Also, when appropriate, ask if it’s okay if you call them when you get home. But most importantly, BE QUIET.
  • Slow Drivers in the Fast Lane. I understand there is a speed limit and you would like to follow it, but get out of the way. Yes, I am one of those drivers who hates being stuck behind someone. I wouldn’t call myself an aggressive driver, but I do yell at other cars a lot. Anyway, If you want to drive the speed limit, or slower, stay to the right please. Some people like to cruise around 70, or 75 mph. If you are going 50 mph, you don’t understand how frustrating you are. There are multiple lanes on the highway, and one of them is called the slow lane. That’s where you belong. I don’t really mind if you want to go the speed limit in the fast lane, but if you see someone coming up behind you, get out of the way and let them pass you. For all you know, they are in a hurry and you are making them very angry. Also remember that fast drivers are not necessarily dangerous drivers.

 

Okay, that’s enough for now!  Have a great day!

Appreciate the Little Things [Part 7]

It’s been a while! I think that’s how I started the last one of these. Oh well.

Parts 1-6!

Leggo!

  • Collecting Gays. Seeing as it is Pride right now (yesterday was Capitol Pride and I believe today is LA Pride), I feel this is appropriate. Anywho, does it bother anyone else when people want to be friends with a person simply so they can say they have gay friends? Maybe they think it will make them seem more loving or open to different types of people? I don’t really get it. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve heard someone ask how to meet and befriend a gay person. Like, really? They’re people, not collectibles. If you want to get to know a gay person or learn about gay-related things, then join a GSA or similar group to show your support for the community.
  • .GIF argument. It’s most popular on tumblr but has been found other places. Some people pronounce it gif. Some people pronounce it jif. it doesn’t really matter. The creator has said the proper pronunciation is jif, but why does it matter? You know what the person is talking about even if they don’t pronounce it like you do. I know I’m one for proper pronunciation of words but, think about it, the letter G can be pronounced two different ways. Don’t believe me? think about how you say the words “Gift” and “Giraffe.” See how its different? So who really cares which way you say .GIF?
  • “Made you flinch!” Really? Do you expect me to not flinch as your fist is moving at excessive speeds toward my face? I don’t think so. The fact that I did flinch shows that my brain is functioning properly. If I didn’t flinch I might be concerned.
  • Facebook game requests. People play all kinds of different games on facebook. I play some of them myself. However, I don’t play all of the ones that you do. Stop sending me requests for games that I don’t play! But how am I supposed to know what games you don’t play? Well, there are a few ways to know. Let me clue you in. First of all, if I haven’t responded to your last fifty requests, chances are that I don’t want to play the damn game. Second, most games have a nifty little option on the screen that asks you to select friends to send requests to. This particular option allows you to filter your friends list to show you only the friends who play that game. They’re the only ones that are going to send you coins or whatever so how about you stop nagging the rest of us?
  • Coughing without covering your mouth. Seriously? Okay, you’re sick, I’m sorry, that sucks. BUT I DON’T WANT IT. Don’t spread your germs. Do you realize that when you sneeze, tiny balls of snot fly out of your nose and land on everything around you? When you cough, spit flies everywhere. Cover your shit. This is one instance where sharing is not the best option.

 

Okay, rant over! I hope you enjoyed reading my sass. I have a pretty long list at the moment so more will be coming soon!

Appreciate the Little Things [Part 6]

Parts 1-5!

It’s been a while. I’ve been slowly gathering these as time has passed. Believe it or not, it’s getting more and more difficult to find new things that bother me. I can’t let every little thing bother me. I’d probably turn into Shrek and live in a cottage on a swamp in the middle of who knows where. Of course, I would probably write about how annoying the mosquitoes are. Who knows? On with the post!

  • Tagging photos on facebook. We all have that friend, or family member, who decides to tag themselves in your pictures. I find this annoying. If you aren’t in the picture, you’re name shouldn’t be next to it. Of course, there are exceptions. If someone wasn’t in the picture that was there, or the friend that took the picture, and so on. We can all figure out who should be tagged, and who shouldn’t be. Well, most of us can. Basically, if you aren’t in the picture, or involved some how, then don’t tag yourself. If you want to save the picture, because it’s cute or whatever, then save it to your computer.
  • “Going up South.” Don’t be directionally challenged. If you live in Nebraska, you are going down to Texas, not up. There always seems to be a person Who says they are going up to DC. Sorry, but we are currently above DC. You are going down to DC. Look at a map.
  • Religious Intolerance. You know who you are. And I’m not just talking about a single religious group. I know I give Christianity a hard time. A lot. But the truth is, everyone does it. Just my giving Christianity a hard time is a perfect example of religious intolerance. People who know me in real life, know that I don’t have a problem with Christians. At all. I think its a great religion. I just happen to disagree. Please respect that. If some one believes in something, you have no right to tell them that they are wrong. Of course, I’m always up for a philosophical debate. But a debate is, in no way, meant to insult anyone. To me, religion is personal. If you like to talk about it, that’s fine. Just make sure that what you say isn’t offensive to anyone.
  • Teachers that stand in the way of the board. No one can see what you are writing, drawing, or pointing at, because your body is in the way. I had a sociology teacher last semester that would project the power point, then stand right in the way of the screen. Move. This semester, my geography teacher stands about a foot away from the map, and points to a country. No one has any idea what he’s pointing to. Move.
  • Leaving lights on. If you aren’t using it, turn it off. Maybe it’s just the nature lover in me, but what I really hate is when im looking up at the sky and I can’t see a single star because of all the unnecessary light pollution. A more direct example? My roommate turns her desk fan on all the time. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve turned it off. She usually turns it to blow on her at night. It’s become routine that I turn it off every morning when I wake up. First, its noisy. Second, its cold. Third, its not being used so it should be off.

Well, that’s five. This will be back when I find some more things that bother me. I hope you enjoyed reading!

Appreciate the Little Things [Part 5]

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4!

I’m posting late tonight so lets get this show on the road.

  • “Fuck the Police.” No. Fuck you for thinking you’re better than everyone else. You’re really going to say that about the people who help keep this a safe place to live? If there were no police, you would probably get robbed everyday, people would be abducted, raped, and murdered, a whole more than they already are. Sorry to be so gruesome, but its true. Just because a cop pulled you over, of arrested you or whatever, doesn’t mean they are worthless pieces of crap. Yes, some of them are “bad cops,” or jerks, but most of them aren’t. You can’t hate them for enforcing the rules. This isn’t Kindergarten, grow up.
  • I hate when someone says they don’t like a band for a stupid reason. My inspiration for this comes from my brother. He told me that he didn’t like Keane (I think he actually said that they suck) because they don’t have a guitar. So? Tat just makes them different. Do you hate them because they are different? I’m not sure how many times I say this (probably a lot), but the music isn’t all about the sound. It’s about telling a story or getting a message across. Its a form of communication. The instruments and vocals just make it more pleasing for your ears. The only type of music that I don’t like because of the sound is screamo or that stuff that you cant even understand the words. It just sounds like someone is being brutally murdered. That’s not very pleasant.
  • Bikini tops. This one is for the girls because I’m pretty sure most of the guys will have the opposite opinion. Bikini tops are made for girls with small boobs. But guess what? Girls with big boobs, also want to wear bikini tops, without having to worry about their boobs falling out. Not cool. Plus, America is fat. Most people have big boobs now. And fake boobs don’t count because that shit doesn’t move anyway. I’m talking about natural boobs that are at least a C cup. There are no bikini tops made for these boobs.
  • The toilet paper roll. In a previous post, I talked about replacing to roll when you finish it. That inspired me to talk about how to replace it. When you pull the toilet paper, it should be coming from the top of the roll. If you have to scratch your nails against the wall to get a hold of the end, you’ve done it wrong. It’s not a complicated task, but more people than you know, do it wrong.
  • English vs. Metric System. Everyone in the world uses the Metric system. Except America. You can make you’re cute little comments about how we’re America and we have to be different. Stop. It’s annoying. All we do is make it difficult to communicate with people from other countries. I don’t know how many of my readers are American with friends in other countries (or are from a different country with American friends), but its irritating having to constantly translate the temperature, or inches to centimeters. You could always just learn the other system to avoid having to translate, but who wants to learn two measuring systems? I don’t. But I did. America needs to get it’s act together. Stop trying so hard to be different. While being different is perfectly fine, I encourage it, but sometimes America goes a little over board.

I just want to make it clear that I have absolutely nothing against America. It’s a wonderful place. It’s just a little too cocky sometimes.

Well, that’s it. It might be a while before we see part 6. I have one bullet left on my list. I’m out of ideas. I can’t be bothered by everything, after all. If anyone has any ideas, feel free to comment. Comment. Comment. Comment. Seriously, Comment. Anything that bothers you? Don’t lie. Something bothers you. Maybe my nagging for comments bothers you? Tell me about it. Comment. The button is right below this post. Go ahead. Comment.

Part 1 BAM!

Part 2 POW!

Part 3 SHAZAM!

Okay, here we go ladies!

  • Mispronunciation of words. [Pro-Nun-See-Ay-Shun]. My band director always said Appreciate like [Ap-Rih-She-Ate]. What? No! It’s spelled Appreciate not Appriciate. Please, learn to read. [Ap-Ree-She-Ate]. However, I find the actual pronunciation of the word mischievous incredibly irritating. It’s [Mis-Chiv-Us] not [Mis-Chee-Vee-Us]. Sorry, the first pronunciation there sounds a little stuck up and snobby to me. So basically, pronounce things the way I like it or it will bother me.
  • If you’re going to eat near me, close your freaking mouth while you’re chewing. My brother never closes his mouth and I have to hear him slopping his food around in his mouth. You are a human, please stop pretending to be a cow, it’s not cute.
  • If you use the last of something, replace it. If you notice that you just spread the last bit of butter on your toast, get a new stick out! And don’t tell me that you didn’t notice you took the last of it. You noticed. Also, If you use the last sheet of toilet paper, and you know you did because it got harder to pull and you didn’t have to rip it, get a new freaking roll so the next person has something to use.
  • Crooked things. Maybe it was all the time I spent in marching band but if something isn’t perfectly straight, I feel the urge to fix it. That goes for things that have uneven spacing as well. It drives me crazy.
  • People that bring god into everything. So you’ve applied to a job that is perfect for you and you really want it. Turns out you got the job! Some one says, “That’s the work of God!” No, bitch please, that’s the work of my awesome resume and incredibly flawless interview. Or when you pass a test that you were unsure about. “It’s a miracle by god!” No, It was all of my studying and staying up late trying to cram all of this knowledge into my brain.

Okay, rant over. That’s all I have for you right now.

Im starting a Challenge for the month of July. Everyday will have a different letter associated with it and there will be a theme corresponding to that letter. Sunday will be my break day/make-up day. You should check that out! This should be fun!

Appreciate the Little Things [Part 3]

Part 1

Part 2

Lets get started!

  • Itchy clothing tags. Ugh! Why do they still put that stupid tag with the brand name on the back of the neck? Seriously? Use that iron on stuff or whatever! I thought I was finished with itchy tags when I saw those… 10 years ago! Get your shit together!<p align=”right”><!–more–></p>
  • Has this happened to anyone else? You’re watching TV, and you’re really into the conversation or it’s a really vital conversation between characters, and someone else walks in the room while having  conversation with someone and they decided to scream to the person standing two feet away from them. Then you try to hint to them that you can’t hear the TV, by turning it up a few clicks. Yet these lovely people are completely oblivious. Go have your screaming match in a different fudging room!
  • People who drive with their hazards on in the rain. Are you moving? Have you pulled over? Are you hitting the breaks? What are you doing, fool? If you are moving, your hazards shouldn’t be on, people. Unless you are unable to drive the speed limit, turn those shits off. It just makes it more confusing for the people behind you.
  • Smart Cars. What is this contraption? That thing looks more dangerous than a “stupid” car. If you take a turn too fast, you’re going to roll over! If someone t-bones you, you’re most likely dead. Have you ever seen a big guy in a smart car? It looks like Mr. Incredible. Please, buy a normal car. Some times, geniuses can be dangerous.
  • Pot and Cigarettes. One is legal, the other is not. One is harmful to the user and everyone around them, the other is not. One smells horrible, well, they both smell awful. I think you know where I am going with this. Cigarettes cause cancer, weed, as far as we know, does not. We may not know for sure that weed is not cancer causing, but we do know that cigarettes are. Yet cigarettes are legal and marijuana isn’t. I’m not one of those teenage potheads that wants pot to be legal; I can’t stand the stench of pot, nor will I waste my money on it. However, lots of people will waste their money so, why not legalize it and tax the shit out of it? Has anyone ever been walking into a nice restaurant for dinner and had to walk though clouds of cigarette smoke? I have and I hate it. I purposely cough up a lung when I have to. Sorry, but if you want cancer, go for it, I don’t so stop spreading that shit.

That’s all for now then!

This is a continuation of a previous post: Link!

 

Here we go!

  • I absolutely hate when you are texting or chatting with someone and they don’t type with proper grammar. I’m not talking about not using an apostrophe, or not completing sentences (or run-ons). I don’t care about that stuff. It’s when they don’t separate thoughts. Sometimes I have to re read things a million different ways to try to figure out what they’re saying. Also, people need to learn the differences between your and you’re; there, their, and they’re; accept, and except; affect and effect; allot, and a lot; and to, too, and two. Seriously. Learn your own language. The only exception is non-native English speakers. However, most of the non-native speakers, that I know, understand the difference and use the words, and grammar, properly.<p align=”right”><!–more–></p>
  • It is starting to bug me when people give “god” credit for everything. For example, I received a few cards from family congratulating me on graduating. One of these cards was religiously themed. It talked about how “god” got me through high school, and thanking “god” for whatever else. Nowhere on the card did it say anything about all of the hard work I put into my school career. What about me? wheres my credit? Not to sound like I think everything should be about me, or that I didn’t appreciate the thought behind the card. Another example is when you get over a sickness, whether it be a cold, or more serious, and someone says something along the lines of “Oh, God has healed you!” No, he didn’t. My immune system did. Or the professionals in the medical field did. Why don’t you give the people who actually contributed the credit they deserve?
  • Sweden vs. Switzerland. Learn the difference. They are two very different countries in Europe. A few months ago, a kid in my Human geography class asked a question. This kid became known for questions that pissed me off. Anywho, I don’t even remember what his question was, I just remember him saying something about “The Swedes of Switzerland.” …Really? The only way you can have Swedes of Switzerland” is if they are visiting, and in that case, they they don’t represent Switzerland at all. The people of Switzerland are called the Swiss. Swedes are in Sweden. And the worst part about this experience is it too place in a geography class. Come on people. My mom does this a lot too. She told me something about having Swedes in our family tree. She went to look, to show me, and it turns out they were Swiss. THERE’S A DIFFERENCE!
  • I just love it when you are obviously listening to music and all these bitches, that wanted nothing to do with you when you weren’t listening to music, all of a sudden decide they want to talk. Sorry, can you see the headphones on  my head? Go away.
  • Coloring book pictures. If you don’t know, I color a lot. I can’t stand when the artist who drew the picture, decided it was a good idea to leave the picture unfinished. Example:As you can see, the line just stops. Yes, that looks fantastic for a drawing, and I know what it is supposed to be. Great! But not when i try to color it. Do I just stop the color there? Do I follow the curve of the line? What do I do? Coloring is supposed to be fun and relaxing. This is just too stressful!

 

More to come!
