Here's a list of 10 things that I just want to shake my head about.

1. Not shutting the door when you leave a room

Giphy

There is nothing worse than having the door shut, someone walks in, gets what he or she needed, and then walks out without shutting the door. If you're trying to be productive, you then have to get up and shut the door. If you're about to go to sleep, you're forced to get up to shut it in order to go to sleep, since there is no way you can fall asleep with the lights outside on.

2. Not understanding "quiet time"

Giphy

Sometimes we all need quiet time. For me, I need quiet time when I actually focus on studying. Nothing makes me more frustrated that when people can't respect that. It throws me off of my studying or concentration.

3. When someone only responds to 1/4 questions asked

Giphy

I am asking questions because I want to know the answer, duh. I am the type of person who will send a couple of texts to a person if I feel comfortable, and I want a response to all of them!!! Usually, the person will respond to the last text and ignore the first one or two...uh hello, this is urgent.

5. Assuming girls know nothing about sports

Giphy

As a major sports fan, I can talk my way through a conversation about sports. I follow them, and I do actually know my facts. Nothing makes me feel inferior than when someone belittles me in a sports conversation, acting like I don't know what is going on. I will admit to anything I don't know, but I am better than most.

5. The people that "know everything"

Giphy

I respect intelligence. But sometimes I just hate being corrected, especially if it is getting into the nitty-gritty. Sometimes, I just want to feel good about where I'm at, instead of that one person that always feel the need to "one-up" me.

6. Classic grammar mistakes

Giphy

I hate when people mistake "your" and "you're". A while has a space. Know when to use affect versus effect.

7. The people that talk over movies/shows and then want to be caught up

Giphy

I dislike having to stop a show to catch someone up on what happened because they were talking. I just want to focus on the movie.

8. Drivers who don't use a turn signal

Giphy

Not only is this dangerous, but I've been forced to wait several times thinking someone is going straight or my direction, and then they turn and I could've gone five minutes ago. Ugh.

9. That person that gets crumbs in the butter container

Giphy

Being a clean freak, this just grosses me out. It's like finding peanut butter in the jelly jar. Gross.

10. Not putting something back where it was found

Giphy

It is the #1 reason why I lose things. *drops mic*

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.

Dumplin'

For as long as I can remember, I've been fat. The protagonists in the movies I've watched and the books I've read, however, have not been. . .

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

Tumblr

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
