(3/7) 6 Reasons Why I Hate Shopping For Women's Jeans

Ah, jeans.

The clothing item that seems to go with any shirt.

The clothing item that can be both casual and sort of formal.

And the clothing item women hate shopping for the most. Well, it's either jeans or bras, but for similar reason.

I just went shopping for jeans this past Sunday at Old Navy, and I was reminded why I hate doing this.

In fact, I thought of six reasons why.

1. There are way too many types of jeans.


Take Old Navy, for example, where I just went. They have skinny, boot cut, mid-rise, high-rise, and something called a "rockstar." And they are all subtly different, and you don't notice these differences until you try them on. Speaking of trying them on...

2. You need different sizes for different types


Do you think you know your pant size? Think again! Your jean size is completely different than your regular pant size. And you need a different size for each type of jean. For example, I am a medium in high-rise rockstar jeans, but a large in skinny jeans. But size doesn't matter because...

3. All of them always feel too tight


And not just the skinny jeans. All jeans somehow feel way too small. Even the ones that are supposedly in your size. But you have to stick to that size, because...

4. When you try to go up a size, to get more room, they're way too big


It seems like when you go up just one size, they fall down.

5. There are many different types, but only one actually flatters you.

Like I said in point number one, there are many different styles, however only one style actually flatters you, and you have to only buy that style for the rest of your life.

6. They don't actually look all that good.


Let's be honest here, jeans aren't that amazing. When's the last time you told someone "cool jeans" or "I like those jeans?" Never. Because they all look the same, and they all serve a similar purpose, to be something that doesn't take away from or clash with our shirts, and something that you can just throw on and don't have to wash.

I have always heard sayings like "Why study art? Why not Engineering, Science or Commerce?", "Art won't get you anywhere," "Art is useless," "You won't get a proper job" etc. I have also heard of situations of the school board planning to cut arts in schools, thinking that students won't do well in their education. Well, you know what, you all are wrong! Arts make a huge impact on our lives! Here are the reasons why art is Important.

One of the most debated topics revolves around which season is actually the best; of course, this is mostly dependent on where you live and whether or not there are four seasons throughout the year. That being said, in the context of Marist students, here is a definitive list of the reasons why autumn is actually the best:

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.
