It’s been awhile since I’ve give you all a good old fashioned rant post. I hope you’re prepared, because I am a ball of fury today.
First things first: The topic of having children. I think it’s wonderful if you want to have children. Do it healthily, raise a great kid, have your family, be happy. FABULOUS. That’s great that that’s what you want and I completely support you making those decisions. I, however, don’t have the desire to have children now, so QUIT ASKING/BUGGING/TALKING TO ME ABOUT IT. I know that everyone things I exist solely to provide infants to the world, but that’s not what I want in my life, so thank you, good bye. Let it be okay that I don’t want kids, and I’ll continue to let it be okay that you do.
Second: Did you know that there is a war between women who gave birth… “traditionally” versus women who have a C section? Some pushers are saying that c-section havers are less of a mother or “not a mother” because they didn’t push. EXCUSE YOU?! I don’t care if you pushed, or had surgery, or adopted, if you have a child you are a mother. End of story. There’s not a “more of a mother” option. You are or you aren’t and they all are. Shut up and stop trying to make people feel like crap. You suck.
Third: Women in general. Why do we continually tear each other down and then expect others to view us as equals. Do you know that if a man does something different, he doesn’t care what other guys think, he just does what he wants to and doesn’t apologize for it. Why women feel the need to judge, snark, and gossip about every little decision that’s not the same as their own, I’ll never know… but ladies, I’m telling you that is 97% of why we aren’t “EQUAL”.
Fourth: #firstworldproblems… That entire hashtag and sentiment is embarrassing. Take a second when you type it to actually think about how ridiculous it is that you’re whining about something that most people don’t even have.
Fifth: Rudeness… Why is politeness a lost art? I’m sorry, but my mom would have smacked me upside the back of the head if I talked to people the way I’m talked to half the time. Life lesson: Be nice to the lady who answers the phone… you’ll get what you want A LOT faster than if you’re rude.
Sixth: Student Loans… These are the bane of my existence. Yes, we can afford to pay the monthly minimum payment without having consolidated them… but it’s more than half our mortgage. Yeah, that’s a problem. The fact that my “low interest government loans are at 6.5-8% is a joke. I should have just moved to Norway. Did you know they give anyone free college there. Yeah, the American college system is a joke. There, I said it.
I’m running out of steam and I’m sure if you’re still reading this you’re sick of me whining about random crap. I could really keep yelling for days (or so I feel right now) but I’ll leave well enough alone.
What’s the bee in your bonnet this morning?
