Blog about all things that are annoying

Tag Archives: annoying

So mostly my blog has been about what I think is annoying so as any blogger who has run out of ideas I have taken to Twitter to see what my peers think is annoying.

I’m going to get a little personal on this post. I have generalized anxiety disorder. What this means is that I’m constantly worrying about irrational things. I don’t mind speaking to people about this because I don’t feel like it is something I need to hide. My disorder doesn’t change who I am and certainly doesn’t change our relationship.

What is annoying is when people mock and do not recognize mental illnesses. Depression, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Bipolar disorder, Anorexia, and other mental diseases are just as real as other disorders. When someone has cancer, it is recognized, sympathized, and mockery is frowned upon. Why isn’t that the case for mental disorders? Is it because of the social stigma that someone is “crazy” or “making it up” because their brain’s chemicals are skewed and that others can’t see the physical aspects?

I am a little biased on this topic but I felt like it was one that needed to be brought up. I hope I will never know how it feels to have cancer but I try to sympathize with what they are going through. Why can’t this be done with mental disorders? Why does someone have to take their own life before it is recognized as legitimate by their friends and family? Would you ignore diabetes or a broken bone? Just because you can’t comprehend their disorder does not mean you should mock it or tell them they are “faking it for attention”. Demonizing mental illnesses is annoying.

If you or anyone you know is struggling with any type of mental disorder then please feel free to visit http://www.nami.org/ for support or questions.


tram

Living on campus and off campus both have their pros and cons. A major issue that I had heard upperclassmen complain about often was the tram services at Texas State University. I thought it was just a running joke until I experienced the tragedy myself.

One day I left my apartment 40 minutes before a class that I had a test in. Got to the bus stop, bus came relatively quickly, and I get to the school a good 20-30 minutes before class. Unfortunately the bus driver did not think we should be going to class so he decides to take us around the bus route one more time before letting us out. I, of course, was late to my class.

Most of the Texas State off campus students have horror stories of the tram system here. Most of the time it is neither the tram drivers fault nor the students so even though a lot of the complaints are justifiable there is no solution to be had.

My generation is considered the “technology generation”. We grew up with computers, cell phones, internet, and other various technologies. Every year new technologies come out that capture the world’s attention. Unfortunately, my attention is mostly not where it should be.

I, like most of my peers, am constantly on my phone.

“Did he text me?” 

“I wonder if I should update my facebook status for Grandma…”

“I bet the tags on Tumblr have what I’m looking for.”

“WTF? Did Becky just subtweet me?”

My lack of self control and need for various social media interaction is annoying. I need to get off my phone especially when I have so many things to do. One app that I would love to see is an app for a phone that sets a timer and locks you out of your phone until a certain time(they you set yourself). There would be an emergency call setting in case of emergencies(no text option because why would you text in case of a real emergency?).

As a child, I couldn’t wait to grow up and be a grownup. There would be no one to tell me where to go, what to do, what to wear, or how to live my life. Going off to college allowed me to live the life I have always dreamed…except it didn’t.

When I left home, I was optimistic and had grand dreams of what college and adult life is going to be like. No one told me that I would be stressed every single day because I never had enough money to buy food, pay rent, buy clothes, or have outings with friends. Not only is money an issue but relationships get harder to create and maintain.

Being thrust out into the cold a.k.a. being dropped off at college, is not the fun party tv portrays it. Luckily, my parents taught me to self sufficient enough so that I wouldn’t struggle but yet here I am along with my fellow peers. I’ve been told that it gets easier but I’ve also been told that it gets harder. College and growing up is annoying.

For my homies that are still struggling with washing clothes then here is a link for you: http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-wash-clothes-in-a-washing-machine.html

Story Time

This summer a friend that I hadn’t talked to since the semester before contacted me again. At first I was a little weary because I had stopped speaking to her for certain reasons before but it was the summer and I was bored. Our conversations got longer and more friendly as time went on and when we finally got back to San Marcos she continuously asked to hang out. She’s pretty cool so I figured “why not?” but every time I was busy, she was free and every time she was free, I was busy. This past Saturday, I was completely free for the whole day so I asked to hang out a few days prior. She said she was available and that she was really excited to see me. Saturday rolls around and I checked in that we were still on. She responded that she couldn’t come but could hang out the next day. The next day rolls around and I hear nothing from her.

MORAL OF THE STORY: People who flake on plans are really annoying

Do not ever make plans and bail out . When the other person drops plans it is rude and discourteous for you to not go through with a promise. Flaking also shows how bad and unreliable of a person you are. If you truly value friendships then don’t make plans you know you’re not willing to keep. It is understandable if something were to come up but doing this for every plan you make isn’t cool. So no, Tony the Tiger, flakes are not great.

Do yourself a favor and read this
