We all have a list of certain, little habits that people do that we hate. Like absolutely just can't stand. These are the pet peeves that make you cringe by just imagining them. Since everyone is different, I'm sure not everyone has the same pet peeves. But for the most part, we all usually hate the same things, yet there is still a vast majority of people who do them.

Maybe they just don't notice that they're doing them?

Maybe they do notice and are just the worst?

Who knows, but I'm sure you probably picture a certain someone when you think of your pet peeves. If I'm going to be honest, I picture most of my loved ones. But I'm not perfect either and that's OK because we learn to love each other for our flaws, right?

So, if you find yourself falling into one of these categories, I'm sure you are still very loved, but you should probably cut that shit out.

1. Smacking your food

The smacking noise is the worst. You sound like a damn hog at the slop trough. But you are still loved!!

2. Unnecessarily loud breathing

^ Eleven says it all.

3. People who get in front of you and then walk negative 3 miles an hour

If I'm rushing to class and you cut me off, just to walk half the speed I'm walking, I will plow your ass over.

4. Not covering your mouth when you cough

This also goes for not covering your nose when sneezing.

5. Slow drivers

This is just for the people who go 15 below the speed limit in the left lane. You, sir, need to get over.

6. Aggressive AF drivers

Shoutout to all the "yee-yee" trucks (you know who you are) who always tailgate me! Like I am already speeding, and I'm in the right lane why are you on top of me?!

7. People who think they're better than everyone else

Honestly, you probably are better than me, but you can't just assume that!

8. People who are rude to customer service workers

We are trying our best to be good workers, OK! Just be nice and have some human decency. I swear it will go a long way!

To those who are nice to waiters, waitresses, retail workers, etc.: YOU ARE THE REAL MVPs! Thanks for not sucking.

9. When someone interrupts you

^ How I will look at you if you interrupt me.

10. When someone pulls up right next to your car at a stop light and stares at you

Like why??? Are you judging me for singing along to Missy Elliott? Because if so, I kind of understand lol. But still. Mind yo business.

11. People who swerve over the centerline when driving

Why are you trying to run me over?

12. People who have to let you know that they knew a song before you did

"You're just now hearing this song?" "This song is so old." "Oh, I found this song months ago."

I do not care. :)

(This can also go for things other than music, ex: movies, books, etc.)

Everything You Will Miss If You Commit Suicide

The world needs you.

You won't see the sunrise or have your favorite breakfast in the morning.

Instead, your family will mourn the sunrise because it means another day without you.

You will never stay up late talking to your friends or have a bonfire on a summer night.

You won't laugh until you cry again, or dance around and be silly.

You won't go on another adventure. You won't drive around under the moonlight and stars.

They'll miss you. They'll cry.

You won't fight with your siblings only to make up minutes later and laugh about it.

You won't get to interrogate your sister's fiancé when the time comes.

You won't be there to wipe away your mother's tears when she finds out that you're gone.

You won't be able to hug the ones that love you while they're waiting to wake up from the nightmare that had become their reality.

You won't be at your grandparents funeral, speaking about the good things they did in their life.

Instead, they will be at yours.

You won't find your purpose in life, the love of your life, get married or raise a family.

You won't celebrate another Christmas, Easter or birthday.

You won't turn another year older.

You will never see the places you've always dreamed of seeing.

You will not allow yourself the opportunity to get help.

This will be the last sunset you see.

You'll never see the sky change from a bright blue to purples, pinks, oranges, and yellows meshing together over the landscape again.

If the light has left your eyes and all you see is the darkness, know that it can get better. Let yourself get better.

This is what you will miss if you leave the world today.

This is who will care about you when you are gone.

You can change lives. But I hope it's not at the expense of yours.

We care. People care.

Don't let today be the end.

You don't have to live forever sad. You can be happy. It's not wrong to ask for help.

Thank you for staying. Thank you for fighting.

Suicide is a real problem that no one wants to talk about. I'm sure you're no different. But we need to talk about it. There is no difference between being suicidal and committing suicide. If someone tells you they want to kill themselves, do not think they won't do it. Do not just tell them, “Oh you'll be fine." Because when they aren't, you will wonder what you could have done to help. Sit with them however long you need to and tell them it will get better. Talk to them about their problems and tell them there is help. Be the help. Get them assistance. Remind them of all the things they will miss in life.

If you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline — 1-800-273-8255

Part 1: Necessary Changes

One of my favorite movies is "Fried Green Tomatoes" with Kathy Bates. In the movie Bates' character Evelyn Couch says, "Someone helped put a mirror up in front of my face, and I didn't like what I saw one bit. And you know what I did? I changed." I know the feeling.

I looked in the mirror over the weekend and didn't like what I saw.

The person I saw looking back at me is petty, selfish, manipulative, and unattractive. It wasn't that I hated what I saw, but I definitely didn't like what I saw either. It's a surreal feeling, looking at yourself through a critical lens, and it doesn't make you feel good in any way shape or form.

The image that I see of myself is not how I want others to perceive me. I want to be someone that people look at and see kindness, compassion, strength, and confidence.

I have enough general life experience to know that these types of changes aren't going to happen overnight, and not all of them will be physical; most of these will have to happen from the inside, from within myself.

When you find out you are all broken and damaged, it's hard to know where to start putting the pieces back together. I figured the best place to start would be the most literal: my actual insides; so, I decided to embark on a deep-cleansing journey to get all of the toxins out of my body, from the inside out.

I found this book on 10-day green smoothie detox stashed away in the dark corner of my bookshelf. The science behind it seems accurate and legitimate. By eliminating certain foods, your body is able to detox itself off of chemicals and foods that are slowing down your metabolism; the smoothies are specifically designed with combinations of foods that help restart your metabolism. Part of the detox process is getting rid of all dependencies on caffeine, alcohol, and sugar.

Every day you are given the recipe for a specific smoothie; you make the smoothie (about 40 ounces) and sip on it throughout the day whenever you get hungry. Every smoothie is a combination of leafy greens, water, fruit, and flax seeds. If you do happen to get hungry throughout the day, you are encouraged to eat raw nuts, hard boiled eggs, and a wide variety of crunchy green vegetables. There is also a detox tea that you have first thing in the morning, but other than that no other beverages are allowed except water.

I know that this is only the beginning of a very long, emotional, and draining journey. But I think I'm at the point in my life where I have to make these changes. I have to put my pieces together, I have to become a normal functioning adult, I have to find out who I am. I think that this is the perfect way to start.

For the next 10 days I am going to be documenting my experiences, how I'm feeling, what my emotions are doing, and any results that I see.

Stay tuned!
