10 Of My Most Perturbing Pet Peeves

We all have certain things that bug the living hell out of us, these are called pet peeves. They are unique to every person, just as unique as appearances. Let's see if you can reason with mine. (It's also fun to discuss these with a friend!) So go ahead, grab someone and let's all discuss these agonizing things together.

1. Being a half hour to an hour late to EVERYTHING

We probably all remember a time where we couldn't drive. Therefore, our parents had to take us to our friend's house, the movies, " McDonald's, anywhere we needed to be. Speaking for me, my friends would tell the rest of my friend group and me to come over at four. When it came to be about 3:45 p.m. I would be on the couch waiting on my mother to take me because I include drive time. My mom would see me sitting on the couch and instead of leaving then, she goes down to the basement to do laundry. Then we have to wait on the dryer to be done because it wasn't ready. When the dryer is done, I have to wait and let the clothes be folded, then I would be asked to help put away clothes. Then our dogs need to be taken out, and by the time we are ready to leave I would look at the time and it would be 4:25 p.m. I calculate some drive time and I would be there at 4:40 p.m.

As a kid just trying to hang out with her best friends, this was pretty heart crushing.

2. Slow people in the fast lane

That one time when you are late for something and there's that one driver... We have all been there. Based on where I live though, seven times out of 10 it is going to be a tractor instead of a grandma.

3. Changing plans last minute

Those quick instances where I have to look at my phone, or else we're (Yes me and my late mother) are going to go to the wrong place *rolls eyes*. Not only does this happen when trying to hang out with friends, it also happens when it's storming and there's a soccer practice scheduled in 10 minutes. Or, ladies, how about that 45-minute curling session, 15-minute hairdo, and 55-minute makeup job done for a romantic candlelit dinner just to get stood up FIVE minutes before they said they would pick you up. You bet your ass I am still going out.

4. Tan lines, just tan lines

Now, I have gotten over this pet peeve of mine for the most part, but I use to absolutely hate having multiple tan lines on my body. Also, keep in mind that I never cared about anyone else walking around with tan lines, just me. Anyway, I hated being multiple shades. For my skin type, just getting darker was a challenge, then add me not liking being three different shades of burnt? All this caused was trouble for me going outside and me being paler than recent years. I knew that it is acceptable and pretty common, I just couldn't get over mine at the time.

5. Calling a Dutch braid a French braid and the reverse

I am a big self-taught cosmetologist without the degree (obviously). I understand that the general public doesn't know the difference between a Dutch Braid and a French brand, and it's typical for people to just call a braid a braid, and leave it at that. But just so I can maybe inspire some of my viewers to learn the difference, I will explain. A French Braid is a braid composed of three pieces of hair weaved inward. And for a Dutch Braid? Yup, you guessed it. It's a three-piece braid weaved outward!

6. Finishing turns while playing board games

I knowww, "Monopoly" is a long game, and. I knowww that there's always one person playing that takes their sweet-ass time rolling the dice and moving their piece. But, when anyone plays with me, I make them wait there turn. I have a reason for this. Say we are playing a game like "Sorry," if we just keep going through turns without watching everyone take their turn, someone won't move or move too much to get another person out. Chaos is bound to happen. Basically, I trust absolutely no one playing board games.

7. Chewing with their mouths open

Now, this isn't a pet peeve of mine, but it is one that of my boyfriend. And I am obviously guilty on this. My excuse? I'm too hungry to take small bites and want to devour my food (I'm working on it though).

8. Family gatherings that take too long

Normally, this doesn't happen to me, but when it does, I'm not a happy camper. Most of the time there is games or food or something to entertain me until we leave. There is a few instances though where I'm just sitting on the couch, staring at a wall. I get annoyed with everyone and practically run out the door when someone else says their leaving (I don't want to be the first person to leave, that's rude).

9. Wearing almost the same color of top and pants

Now, recently it has become a trend to wear all black, grey, and white clothes. Tracksuits, jumpers, even rompers make it super easy to do that. However, what about navy and dark navy jeans? Yellow and yellow? Red and red? You all get the gist. It is not OK!

10. When I'm ready to leave work and the manager makes me help the cooks

When I am not busy at a restaurant, I close my section. Then I can leave. Easy, right? Wrong. We get paid four dollars an hour and after we get our stuff done like we need too and can leave early, I want to leave early. But I get asked to stay and help the cooks with a task. Now, you would think that since I was asked I could say no, but that is not the case. I go, help with the task, whatever it may be, then I leave. Wasting at-least 20 minutes that I could have had in freedom.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

3874
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11712

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
