23 Things That Annoy Skinny People

23 Things That Wear Skinny People's Patience Thinner Than They Are

This is just a slim list of things that annoy skinny people.


I'm "blessed" to have a fast metabolism. Unfortunately, the list of things that wear my patience thin isn't as skinny as I am.

Here is a slim list of the things that wear skinny people's patience thinner than they are.

1. Putting on a pair of pants just to have them fall down

No, a belt isn't going to fix the problem.

2. Waitstaff asking if you’re sure you want what you’re ordering

Yes, I know it's a bigger portion. I'm hungry.

3. People asking if you ever eat

Yes, I eat — probably more than you do some days.

4. People being shocked by how much you can eat

Even when it's the same amount they're eating.

5. Being asked if you’re anorexic 

I appreciate your concern, but being skinny doesn't mean I'm unhealthy.

6. Size small not being small enough


If you're lucky, size extra small can be too big too.

7. People assuming you can eat whatever you want with no consequences


Junk food is junk regardless of who you are.

8. Getting cold easily


At least when you wear a coat, you don't look quite as skinny.

9. People assuming you only eat salad


Yes, I like salad. No, it's not the only thing I eat.

10. Being told you need more meat on your bones


I'm not a steak. I have plenty of meat on my bones, thank you.

11. Others constantly reminding you how skinny you are

Thank you, I was completely unaware of how skinny I am. *eye-roll*

12. People worrying that you’ll “break” if they hug you too hard


I'm not made of glass.

13. The nicknames

Toothpick, String Bean, Skinny Minnie, Twig… I have a real name, too.

14. Being asked why you’re not a model


Sorry, I like writing better.

15. Hearing that you’ll gain weight after you turn 30 or have kids

I'm doubtful.

16. Not being able to donate blood 

We all should, but some of us can't.

17. Always needing a belt


Your wardrobe is full of belts or pants with drawstrings.

18. Being told to be careful when it’s windy outside


I'm not going to blow away when the wind is 20 mph.

19. Finding a bracelet that doesn’t slip off your arm


Watches are awkward too.

20. Always sitting in the middle of the backseat

Just because I'm skinny doesn't mean I want to be turned into a human sandwich.

21. Being picked up so someone else can test their strength


Wow, you're so strong since you can pick up the skinniest person in the room. Would you mind putting me down now?

22. Unpadded seats


Imagine sitting on your elbows for a few hours.

23. The assumption that you’re weak just because you’re skinny


I'm strong enough to put up with all of the things on this list.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
