10 Things That Annoy Me, But Probably Shouldn’t

There's annoying, and then there's ANNOYING.

10 Things That Annoy Me, But Probably Shouldn’t

I like to think I'm an easygoing person until THAT person shows up. Who is that person? They come in many forms, but they can usually be spotted doing one of these 10 things.

When people leave their electronics plugged in.

Seriously, I know charging your laptop doesn't have the best battery life, but it still has a battery. You do not need to leave it plugged in to use it.

When I sneeze and someone says “bless you.”

This one honestly confuses me. Do you even hear yourself saying that? Sneezing is already kind of gross. I don't need someone announcing it for no reason.

When someone holds the door for me for a really, really long time.

Holding doors open for people is nice and all, but it gets a little awkward when I feel like I need to speed up because you've been waiting so long.

When people say “times it by” instead of multiply.

Okay, I admittedly studied math for a couple years in college, but come on…There's literally a word for doing this.

When people shout into the phone in public areas.

Yes, the person on the other end can hear you. In fact, everyone around you can hear you, too. And you probably don't need to be on speaker either.

When someone can’t stop checking their phone.

Nobody texted you in the 30 seconds it's been since you last checked your phone. Besides, it's okay to be a little disconnected every now and then.

When someone asks if I’ve seen a movie, and then proceeds to tell me about the movie.

If you wanted to tell me about the movie, why did you even bother asking me if I'd seen it in the first place?

When someone asks for help and then solves the problem before I can say a word.

I'm happy to help, but when you figure it out on your own before I can even take a look at what's going on, you probably should've taken two more seconds to think about it.

When someone’s phone goes off in the theater.

They literally tell everyone before the movie starts to turn off their phones. Where were you when the rest of the theater was being courteous?

When people hold pencils strangely.

I know this is one is kind of weird, but I can't stop myself from wondering how in the world anyone learned to hold a pencil other than the normal way. I can't even attempt to hold it any other way without it feeling uncomfortable.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
