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

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

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.
