15 Pet Peeves That Drive Me Utterly Insane

People aren't perfect - I know this. I myself do things that annoy other people... A LOT. Like my sister, for instance, hates that I lick my fingers when I eat (granted I'm sure it can be gross), but I have no idea that I'm even doing it half the time. I never noticed before how many things bother me. Things range from people smacking their lips when they eat to not using their blinker when changing lanes. Some things I don't even know why they bother me.

Here is a list of relatable pet peeves that drive me bonkers:

1. Use your turn signal

We all learned in driver's ed that you HAVE TO USE YOUR BLINKER WHEN CHANGING LANES. It's seriously one of the first things you learn when learning to drive a car. Why do people not do it? I don't think I have road rage, but this kinda grinds my gears.

2. Say "Thank you"

It is not that hard to say "thank you" when someone does something nice for you like gives you a compliment or moves your wet laundry into the dryer. Did your parents teach you manners?

3. Don't chew with your mouth open

I'm sure most people have this on their pet peeves list. It's gross - please stop.

4. Don't try to come up on me the other lane when I'm stuck behind another car in my lane

It's seriously so so annoying when people are aggressive drivers around me. It's SO unsafe and makes me uncomfy.

5. Don't text at the dinner table

I guess I learned this growing up, but it is SO rude when someone is texting when you're trying to have dinner. I personally want to write a law saying no phones/electronics while you eat EVER.


That's obvious. Live yo life.

7. Don't use the word "literally" in every other sentence.

It's LITERALLY so annoying.

8. When other people make me late...

It lights a fire in my heart.

9. People who touch my mac-n-cheese (or anything on my plate for that matter)

You can if you ask first (Except for my mac. You can never have any).

10. Cut me in line

Cut me in line I might cut you in half

11. Incorrect grammar

Sorry, that's the writer inside of me talking. *using "your" when you should be using "you're"*

12. People who are constantly tapping their pens or bouncing their legs in class

I may lose my sanity.

13. The phrase "Well, life isn't fair."

14. Girls who take too many selfies

I get it. I'm a fan of the occasional selfie. One selfie - ok. If you're at a baseball game, and you don't' even know who's playing or what the score is.... you're taking too many selfies.

15. The dreaded duck-lip selfie

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.


Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

If you are dealing with anger issues, please consult your primary care physician, or reach out to Better Help.

Everyone has dealt with anxiety, stress, and even anger at some point in their lives. For some, it's a daily battle with coping anger issues. In fact, it can be brought on by something rather random, or it could even be caused by a highly stressful job where you are dealing with incompetent coworkers and feeling rather under-appreciated. Although life tends to bring along this type of stress that piles on top of the already raging volcano inside, it is best to learn how to live with it in a healthy way.
