10 Normal Things That Annoy You

We can all be a bit testy at times. Some big things make everyone angry, but the worst are pet peeves that drive even a saint insane. Here are the little things in life that shouldn't bother you, but they really do.

1. When someone takes a long time to text back.

Listen, it's really upsetting that you aren't sitting by your phone day in and day out waiting with baited breath to respond to my text. Okay, fine, that's obsessive, but really? Three days to respond to my text. Come on now.

2. When your mom doesn't close your bedroom door all the way.

"Can you close my do-" never mind. I'll just leave my bed and close it. It's fine.

3. People who walk slowly in front of you.

No, no, it's fine. I'll just be here, behind this slow moving wall you've created with your bodies.

4. YouTube and Pandora ads.

Listen, I may be able to save 15 minutes or more on car insurance, but you're wasting 30 precious seconds that could be spent watching Justin Bieber music videos.

5. When people chew loudly.

Seriously. Are you eating a bowl of nails?

6. When Netflix asks, "Are you still watching?"

Why yes, I am, so great of you to remind me that I did nothing with my day.

7. When you hold the door for someone and they don't acknowledge it.


8. When your phone repeatedly autocorrects something in the way you didn't want.

Are you ducking kidding me, iPhone?

9. When people applaud at the end of a flight.

Stop pretending. You're just as annoyed about not being off of this plane as I am. Quit with your fake happiness. Now I feel obligated to clap.

10. When people randomly join conversations.

I'm sorry, but if I wanted you here I would've sent you an invite. Thank you very much.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.
