Why Do We Always Say We Want To Do Things But Never Do

Why Do We Always Say We Want To Do Something But Never Actually Do it?

There's a reason for everything, but is it always valid?

I want to do this, I want to do that. All anybody does anymore is wish and want. So why is nobody actually doing these things? Is it money stopping everybody or is it just time constraints? I can't say I'm not guilty of these types of behaviors, but why is it? What is the real reason?

Travelling to Rome is on your bucket list. Why have you not done that yet? There are very obvious reasons. Money is a huge one. You need a lot of money for a plane ticket, a place to stay, as well as food. Not everybody is a trust fund baby who just has money to do that whenever they so please. Also, who is going to want to go alone? You would want a friend to come along of course, which would require them to have a ton of money as well. It just doesn't work out like that for most people. The common person has a job these days. You would need to take out a lot of time for a big trip. Requesting two days off from work is stressful, let alone two weeks. Which two weeks would not even be enough to explore everything.

So, not travelling to a far away place has very valid reasons. However, if there is a city you want to visit that is a relative distance away, why have you not done it yet? There's not much stopping you. There's not much stopping me either, but I can't quite put my finger on what is preventing these adventures. Asking for a few days off from work isn't a big deal. Also, not everything you do has to cost a lot. Maybe we should all just start doing these things we want to do. There's nothing truthfully stopping us.

We will never know the real reason why we aren't just doing these spontaneous things. We all could just be really lazy, or we all just want to keep earning our money and moving on with life.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
