Why I Hate Writing
Start writing a post

I hate writing. I hate doing it, I hate thinking about doing it, I hate showing anyone what I write.


I started doing an article for Odyssey every week because I thought it would be fun, which it was, for the first couple times. Then I realized I had nothing interesting to say or share and then it got hard. I spend hours trying to think up of something just barely useful and hating it. I willingly let myself plaster my name under some internet crap and I don't know why. Actually, I kind of do. Because I have nothing to say. Literally, nothing.

Politics? I hate seeing and hearing it wherever I go and I hate being stuck with absolute shit for the next four years. That's one of the biggest things going on in the world and that's all I have to say for it. I'm tired of seeing every single post about this damn election, and I know I'm not the only one.

I want to be able to contribute something meaningful and important, both of which I'm not familiar with. You're probably wondering "Meghan, if you hate writing so much, why do you keep doing it?" Well, hate to burst your bubble of questions with: I still don't know.

It's mostly a range of "I'm on the internet for doing something and that's cool," or "this will make me look better as a student," and especially "I have the chance to be able to write about anything I please and have everyone see it, why should I let that go?" That's the worst one, because that's exactly the reason I'm so mad. Having this chance of getting your words out there also comes with complete realization that you know nothing useful. I know some facts and dates; I could tell you about some philosophers, and random bits in between, but who wants to hear that?

I didn't even want to write this because people will probably think it's stupid or I'm crazy. "Girl Writes About How Much She Hates To Write." Yeah, that's smart.

The one thing I have to admit though, is that writing all of this felt amazing. I've been so sick of trying to find something at least kind of interesting enough to submit, and it's either that or my thoughts and feelings, but once again, who wants to hear that? I don't even want to hear that stuff.

So, this is probably the only time I'll ever "vent" or say what I actually think, besides why big boobs make my life hell. That one will always be from the heart.

Hopefully I'll find something better to write about next time.

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

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.
