Things That Make You Uncomfortable

15 Things Guaranteed To Make You Feel Wildly Uncomfortable

Okay skin, you can stop crawling at any time now.


Have you ever come across something that just makes your toes curl?

Well I HAVE. This morning I happened across a potato (yam?) I forgot I had in the corner of my kitchen. For whatever reason, the sight of the thriving thing unsettled me. Yes, I know that if you leave potatoes unattended, uncooked, and with room to grow, then they will.

Nonetheless, the unexpected experience got me thinking about other things I've encountered recently that have made me feel a similar degree of repulsion. Here's a list of 15 things that might make you as wildly uncomfortable as they make me...

1. When your potatoes start growing more potatoes

Vanessa Hinton

Found it this morning and wanted to vomit.

3. Being one of two passengers on a bus or train


There can only be one...

4. Watching other people argue in public


The by-stander embarrassment is real.

5. Being a part of an argument in public


And wanting to be anywhere but there.

6. Pants that fit two sizes too small


It's like vanity sizing in reverse?

7. Spiders


To include a real photo would have honestly been too much.

8. When your Uber driver starts raving about conspiracy theories


And then the relief you feel when you realize you're almost at your destination.

9. When people touch your hair without asking


We get it, my hair is curly. Ask first.

10. Finding a penny that's not heads up


And not feeling comfortable again until you flip it over for someone else to find

11. Studying for finals without a laptop after yours inexplicably decides to break the week before


Unfortunately, I'm speaking from experience on that one. Losing all your notes and switching up study methods last minute is very mentally discomforting.

12. When you're 98% certain you sweat through your shirt, but you can't tell if others can see


And running to the bathroom for a mirror the minute you get indoors to confirm your suspicions.

13. Watching a movie that requires 3D glasses, while simultaneously wearing glasses


It's like they don't want us to see the movie.

14. Being third wheeled


This especially hurts when you KNOW THE PERSON DOING IT. You two should know better.

15. Watching someone sneeze into their hand and then touch the walk-button to cross the street (with the same hand)


It's a monstrous world we live in.

And there you have it. The 15 things that are guaranteed to make you feel just a little bit squeamish.

9 Reasons Crocs Are The Only Shoes You Need

Crocs have holes so your swag can breathe.

Do you have fond childhood objects that make you nostalgic just thinking about your favorite Barbie or sequenced purse? Well for me, its my navy Crocs. Those shoes put me through elementary school. I eventually wore them out so much that I had to say goodbye. I tried Airwalks and sandals, but nothing compared. Then on my senior trip in New York City, a four story Crocs store gleamed at me from across the street and I bought another pair of Navy Blue Crocs. The rest is history. I wear them every morning to the lake for practice and then throughout the day to help air out my soaking feet. I love my Crocs so much, that I was in shock when it became apparent to me that people don't feel the same. Here are nine reasons why you should just throw out all of your other shoes and settle on Crocs.

1. They are waterproof.

These bad boys can take on the wettest of water. Nobody is sure what they are made of, though. The debate is still out there on foam vs. rubber. You can wear these bad boys any place water may or may not be: to the lake for practice or to the club where all the thirsty boys are. But honestly who cares because they're buoyant and water proof. Raise the roof.

2. Your most reliable support system

There is a reason nurses and swimming instructors alike swear by Crocs. Comfort. Croc's clogs will make you feel like your are walking on a cloud of Laffy Taffy. They are wide enough that your toes are not squished, and the rubbery material forms perfectly around your foot. Added bonus: The holes let in a nice breeze while riding around on your Razor Scooter.

3. Insane durability

Have you ever been so angry you could throw a Croc 'cause same? Have you ever had a Croc bitten while wrestling a great white shark? Me too. Have you ever had your entire foot rolled like a fruit roll up but had your Crocs still intact? Also me. All I know is that Seal Team 6 may or may not have worn these shoes to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. Just sayin'.

4. Bling, bling, bling

Jibbitz, am I right?! These are basically they're own money in the industry of comfortable footwear. From Spongebob to Christmas to your favorite fossil, Jibbitz has it all. There's nothing more swag-tastic than pimped out crocs. Lady. Killer.

5. So many options

From the classic clog to fashionable sneakers, Crocs offer so many options that are just too good to pass up on. They have fur lined boots, wedges, sandals, loafers, Maryjane's, glow in the dark, Minion themed, and best of all, CAMO! Where did your feet go?!

6. Affordable

Crocs: $30

Feeling like a boss: Priceless

7. Two words: Adventure Straps

Because you know that when you move the strap from casual mode chillin' in the front to behind the heal, it's like using a shell on Mario Cart.

8. Crocs cares

Okay, but for real, Crocs is a great company because they have donated over 3 million pairs of crocs to people in need around the world. Move over Toms, the Croc is in the house.

9. Stylish AF

The boys will be coming for you like Steve Irwin.

Who cares what the haters say, right? Wear with pride, and go forth in style.
