You Know What I Hate?


Throughout my days, I always find myself saying, “You know what I hate?” then continuing on to say what i hate whether or not it pertained to the conversation I was just having with that person. Well, what better way to get it all down, in case those people forgot of course, than in a list online! In no particular order, I hate:

  1. People who chew, swallow, smack the gum, or talk too loudly
  2. When I can’t remember something I had to tell someone
  3. When someone does anything slower than necessary (i.e. walks, talks, writes, etc.)
  4. When I get blamed for something I had no part of
  5. People who don’t work to the best of their ability
  6. Religious people who disregard every other religion out of ignorance towards what the religion entails
  7. When I can’t fall asleep- It seriously happens every night and I’m stuck laying in bed for hours doing nothing
  8. Stupid people
    1. Quick side note- You may think that’s a rude thing to say, but 1) I don’t care and 2) we have a serious epidemic of ignorant people in this world, and they need to go.
  9. When I can’t complete a seemingly simple task
  10. Losing
    1. Now, I’m sure that would be on any person’s list, but you need to understand that me losing is never an okay occurrence. I believe that I’m arguably the best person in the world and, because of that, I should win at everything by sheer talent and ability. But, if I don’t, hell will break loose and people need to run and take cover because I will start a riot to make sure I come out on top.

Quote of the Week: Disappointment

“Disappointment is a sort of bankruptcy- the bankruptcy of a soul that extends too much in hope and expectation.”

-Eric Hoffer

I’m a human being. I become excited by things that interest me, I expect the same things out of people that I give to them, and I desire- oh so much- to be happy by the outcome of whatever it is I am anticipating. But, sometimes, I forget that these beings surrounding me are just humans too. They don’t always return the care they receive, they don’t always meet my expectations and, they disappoint…often. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not excluding myself from these words as I write them for I know I do those onto others on occasion, but it hurts a hell of a lot more to have them done onto yourself.

Disappointment is bankruptcy. You know, sometimes I say I’m just going to stop making money (or connections to other people). I’m just going to stop getting my hopes up, and then they can’t be let down. But, it’s not that easy.

Luckily, there is a silver lining. Because, even through all of that, there are special occasions where someone comes along and completely exceeds in any expectation you could have created. Whether they send you a text reminding you that they love you or call you a nickname from an inside joke that you hadn’t remembered until the moment the words escaped their lips, they can catch you by surprise and in the best way possible.

I hate getting my hopes up for fear of disappointment but, sometimes, that one person comes along and makes it all worth it.


What am I doing?

I’ve come to notice that there is something unique-something personal-about writing. You see, when I talk in real life, my mind tends to run faster than my mouth ever could. I can jump from Point A to Point C in two seconds flat and not realize I’m doing it until I see the bewildered look on other people’s faces. But, with writing, there are no pressures to make perfect sense, no stuttering, no fear that what you’re saying will come out wrong (because of the beautiful power of editing and proof reading).

But that’s not all. Writing is the most beautiful way to connect your mind with the rest of your body- unless you’re into yoga and, if so, all power to you. It’s like being someone you can’t be in real life, like portraying thoughts that you can’t just tell any and everyone, like showing people that what’s going on up here is different than what they hear coming out of here.

So, I guess I don’t really know what I’m doing or how I’m going to do it… But I know I’m going to enjoy it.
