20 Classic First World Problems We All Complain And Get Salty About
Karlee Onstad

Isn't funny how much we complain? Okay, but actually! We complain SO much about things that mean SO little. Now it's the things that we complain about, that, when you take a step back to observe, just makes you laugh in disappointment. And, trust me, I do it too. Like, I literally was inspired to write this article because the left earpiece of my headphones stopped working and I got unreasonably salty about it. So, here are some classic #firstworldprobs that we are all guilty of.

1. When your Uber driver takes 8 minutes to arrive at your pick-up location, but on the locating map, it indicated they were 5 minutes away.

2. When you have your apps on automatic update and it starts updating as soon as you want to scroll through Insta, so you have to wait the 20 seconds for it to update.


3. When you are recording a video on Snapchat and you try to double-tap the screen to switch to the back camera but it doesn’t immediately work, so you get an awkward 1 second shot of your confused face.

4. When the cheese on your McDonalds cheeseburger isn’t centered, so half of it is melted on the wrapping.


5. When you wear your white shoes for the first time and you accidentally get a scuff on the right shoe.


6. When you crank up the air conditioner in July but you turned it up too high and now you are cold.


7. When your amazon prime order takes 3 days to arrive instead of just 2 days.


8. When your iPhone doesn’t recognize your fingerprint so you have to type in your passcode.


9. When the WiFi is weak so you have to stare at the spinning circle for 30 seconds until your page loads.


10. When Netflix asks if you are still watching.


11. When you have to sit at a red light even though there are no other cars in the other lanes.


12. When you forget to start the dishwasher and you have to manually wash your spoon.


13. When you order Topper sticks at 2 am but it takes over an hour for it to be delivered.

14. When autocorrect makes you text “Duck” instead of “Fuck.”


15. When commercials interrupt your Hulu show.

16. When you are scrolling through Instagram for the third time in five minutes and it reminds you that, “You’re All Caught Up.”


17. When the food stand is cash only and you haven’t carried cash on you for a year.

18. When you refuse to listen to commercials on Spotify, so you pay the $5 each month for premium.


19. When you cannot log in into Netflix even though you have never paid for the account.


20. When you complain about having to walk two flights of stairs to do your laundry.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
