Stress; we’ve all got it. And if you’re sitting there thinking “I actually don’t have any stress”, well keep that to yourself buddy, because hearing it would stress me out. We all try to handle our stress as best we can, but we don’t always know what’s going to cause that stress. So, in the interest of sharing, I have compiled a handy guide to the everyday, regular things that push me to my breaking point. Enjoy! (I don’t.)
Putting Toppings on My Own Food
All food you cook should have a list of things that go on it, and a list of things that do not go on it. Having to add condiments and/or toppings to any food item I’m eating is a horror show of potential failures; I’m not a dang chef! I don’t know what is supposed to go on what! This goes for all foods, be they a hamburger, or some sort of “iced cream”. Spare me from my own potential mistakes.
Where to Eat
Oh God, more food stress! If I’m with a group of people, or even just one other person, I don’t want to be the person who recommends a place, only for it to be terrible and then everyone is upset that I ruined one of the (admittedly many) meals we get to eat in our lives. Or what if we all end up going through a Bridesmaids-like situation? And eating alone isn’t much better, because then I’m letting myself down, and I’m stuck with that judgmental dink 100 percent of the time.
Where I Should Leave My Keys
Not a single morning of my life goes by without me losing some combination of my house and/or car keys. Coincidentally (or perhaps… not?) I am late to wherever I’m going every single morning. This has created an ever building sense of dread in me as I try to formulate the very best place to leave my keys so I’ll immediately be able to find them come sunrise. Alas, I never do, and now I just get worried the second I get home that there’s a better place for me to be leaving them. (My all-time worst choice so far is in the bathroom medicine cabinet, which in retrospect should’ve been pretty easy to see coming.)
When I Should Return a Text Message
The number of text messages I’ve received at a time when it was convenient to respond is approximately seven. Keep in mind that I’ve received tens of thousands of text messages, so that’s not the best percentage. Then I have to ask the question; when do I return these god forsaken messages from Hell? (I’m very dramatic.) If I don’t do it right away I might forget, but interrupting whatever I’m actually working on could totally take me off course. Then, I realize it’s three hours later and I’ve just been thinking about texting someone back.
What to Watch on Netflix
There’s lots of stuff on Netflix that I want to watch, but lots of other factors go into that; do I want to have to give it my entire attention, do I want something I can take looks at my phone during, do I want something that won’t leave me feeling achingly depressed? Honestly, there are so many options that I don’t really remember the last time I actually watched something on Netflix, it’s really just become an app to scroll through while rubbing my temples.
What to Watch on Netflix While Working Out
It’s an entirely different set of requirements than when you just want to lay on the couch and watch something.
Hot To Deal With Life
So many options, so may choices, so many thing that I am just completely and totally behind on. Someone just come and live my life for me, for the love of GOOOOOODDDDDDD!!
