8 Things We Should Stop Spend Less Time Complaining About

1. Your appearance

Complaining about your appearance is just a wasted opportunity for building your own self esteem and learning to understand your own beauty. I get that we all have days where we don’t feel so hot and that most of us have something we’d change about the way we look, but both of those decrease dramatically the more energy you focus on liking your appearance as opposed to harsh self-criticism.

2. Boys

I’ve kind of always been a brat, so I know how much not getting what you want sucks. It sucks not getting the morning text, the attention, or the relationship you think you deserve, but since we’re not middle schoolers in jean mini skirts and Hollister t shirts anymore, you’d think we’d stop blaming the opposite sex for all of our problems and disappointments. If there’s anything that my two decades on Earth have taught me, it’s that boys suck, and that girls suck just as much as them. We need to collectively grow up.

3. Society/The Media

As a communications major and political science minor, I know that there is plenty wrong with both society and the media, but it’s time to stop making generic, uninformed generalizations about society every time something bad happens and scapegoating the media for things we should be holding ourselves personally responsible for.

4. America

As someone who bleeds red, white and blue, I firmly believe that there’s nothing wrong with America that can’t be fixed by what is right with America in the words of Billy J. I don’t think that there is anything wrong with constructive criticism about American policies or that patriotism is believing that one’s country is incapable of wrongdoing, but I have a huge problem with my nation being defamed with ignorant, audacious statements by people that don’t know the Constitution from the Declaration of Independence. I also have a huge problem with people pretending that corruption or injustice are produced and manufactured exclusively by the United States.

5. The Drinking Age

It’s inconvenient that every other sovereign nation in the free world recognizes the drinking age as 18, and has a much more casual attitude towards alcohol. It’s ridiculous that an 18 year old American is legally capable of laying down his life for his country, but is deemed not responsible enough to handle a beer. It sucks. It’s dumb. But it’s also not that big of a deal. It would be great if that law was changed, but we’re all going to keep underaged drinking in the meantime, and if the drinking age is your legislative priority in amidst of everything happening in politics, you need to sort out your priorities.

6. How Expensive Makeup Is

Makeup is super expensive. Even cheap makeup is expensive. Drug store lipstick costs $8 that could be spent at my favorite pizza place for two slices, each the size of one of Nicki Minaj’s butt cheeks. But girls have imagined makeup into a basic living necessity, when it’s really not. If you want to wear it every day, you’re absolutely welcome to, but no one’s forcing you under penalty of law to spend your money on it.  It’s not even a basic aesthetic necessity for most people, but when people use it every day it becomes hard for them to see where the makeup ends and their beauty begins; in their minds, their beauty becomes synonymous with and dependent on makeup.

7. Judgment

People are going to judge you until the day you die, and instead of being mad at people for having opinions, you should live your life in a way that makes other people’s opinions of you irrelevant. When you believe in yourself and what you’re doing, you’re not very concerned with what people are saying about you.

8. Condescending adults

Millennials need to stop embarrassing their generation with this whiny foot stomping and demand of respect when collectively we’ve only proven that we’re good at complaining and taking selfies. Adults treat us like we’re stupid because for the most part, we are. Contrary to popular belief, taking SOC101 doesn’t mean you’ve got it all figured out yet.

  • I work hard because I have a dream of stacking hundreds on each blade of a ceiling fan above my bed (that will be mostly ornamental because I’ll have central air) and making it rain
  • Eyes on the prize
  • let the light in
  • It would be nice if 60° in nova/dc actually meant one thing instead of anywhere from 40° to 80° so I could pack these boots away until the fall once and for all
  • Yesterday while watching the updates roll in on Notre Dame, I couldn’t help but feel discouraged as I read tweet after tweet from people wanting to believe and see the worst in the world. It had to be arson. It had to be terrorism. It had to represent the end of civilization as we know it. But then I remembered that the internet isn’t real life, and even if human nature leaves all of us exposed to and malleable by hate and fear, most people are good. And I don’t know if the glory of a masterpiece that was constructed over the course of 2 centuries can ever be repeated, but I know that beautiful things are born from tragedy. Something iconic and special has been lost, but I like to believe something iconic and special will come of it. I usually only feel this when I watch les mis, but vive la France. New blog post, link in bio.
