9 Things That Annoy The Average Human Being

Everybody has a list of peeves.

9 Things That Annoy The Average Human Being

Everybody has a list of things that absolutely grinds their gears. I am no exception. Pet peeves, irritations, annoyances, various irksome things...yeah, I'd prefer to avoid all of that.

1. Taxi service

Being a college student is rewarding if everything goes smoothly. It goes even smoother when you have a car. It is not smooth, however, when people think that just because you have a car they can ask for a ride whenever to go wherever - usually without gas money or schedule focus. If I am heading the same way as you, hop in. Otherwise, my car is not a taxi, Uber, or Lyft.

2. Late people

Schedules are tight when you work and go to school and have to find time somewhere to work out, right? Waiting around for someone that said they would be there at a specific time and end up showing up thirty minutes to two hours later is a waste of my time and makes it incredibly likely I will not ask you to hang out anymore. Be early. It makes people happy. If you are late, just a heads-up is nice, too.

3. Hitting me up for money

I work three jobs, go to school, and finance my food, phone, gas, and vehicle. Do not ask me for money. It is not because of being miserly, it is because I work hard and barely pay for that stuff as it is. I also do not operate under the IOU standard. That is a great way to lose money and never see it again.

4. Everything is racist/sexist/something-phobic

If you can honestly see something like the aforementioned in literally everything, there is a serious problem with you and you need to rethink your life and grow a thicker skin. Most of that crap you see is fluffed up anyway. Stop being so weak.

5. Politics

The world would be so much of a better place if people minded their own business and focused on the good stuff in life than the nuances of politics and who is in office. Even people who were strongly into the political game last year are tired of seeing everything related to politics everywhere they turn.

6. "I Can't Mentality"

"I can't" means "I won't". You can do it, stop saying you cannot. Open your mind and achieve your potential. Get over that mental block.

7. Attention-whore statuses, pictures, and clickbait

Fishing for compliments is lame. It annoys the smart people and really only appeals to the people closest to you. Photos with attention seeking content and captions are a great way to lose followers and friends. Clickbait is when you post something vague like "I give up" and leave it at that and never give any reason so people will ask what is going on in the comments. Not cool.

8. Catfishing

This does not need any defining. It is mean, it is demeaning, and it is bullying.

9. Cheating

How hard is it to stay loyal to one person? I think it would be more of an effort to be cheating with multiple people than staying loyal and respectful to one person.

There is probably something on this list that annoys somebody. Being aware of issues such as these are the perfect way to begin nipping them in the bud.

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.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
