Inside My Head: Pet Peeves and Little Things I Love

Things that make me cringe:
  • Spit
  • Soaking wet bath mats (I know it's weird)
  • People jiggling their leg/desk
  • Gum being chomped on
  • People texting in the middle of a conversation
  • Love-professing/spiteful Facebook statuses
  • Misuse of their and there; too, two and too; less and fewer; good and well (What? I'm a Comm major and an English minor.)
  • Shuffling feet (especially in Uggs)
  • Incessantly flushing toilets
  • People talking on their cell phones in a public bathroom stall
  • When people put the roll of toilet paper on backwards
  • This 5 Hour Energy Commercial
  • Using eating utensils like a shovel

Things that make me smile:
  • City skylines
  • Friendly people
  • Perky employees
  • A good photograph
  • A random sweet note, text or post
  • Sunny days
  • My boyfriend's dimples
  • Spur of the moment adventures
  • Seeing a friend I haven't seen in a while
  • A big hug
  • The perfect quote
  • A burst of energy during a run
  • Going to sleep during a storm
  • Elderly people waving at every car that goes by from their porch or mailbox
  • Getting an A on an assignment
  • Grandparents signing their name after a Facebook post
  • Being sang to
  • Decorating the Christmas tree to the Rat Pack or Bing Crosby
  • Walks around town
  • Ice cream cones
  • Old fashion shops, decor, objects and accessories
  • A really good meal
  • A dance in the living room
  • Sun tea
  • Throwing the helicopter seeds from Oak trees up in the air

  • Waking up thinking I need to go to work and realizing it's the weekend
  • A pretty sunrise/sunset

I'm sure there are more. I'll edit as they come up. :) Please feel free to add your own to comments!


  1. Watching your son introduce himself to someone as he holds his hand out for a handshake. Makes you feel like you did OK. :)

  2. obvious cell phone pet peeves: people who talk on them while they're checking out at a store. People who talk on their cell loud enough for someone two states away to hear them. People who constantly check their cell phone for messages when they're in the company of other people.

  3. It makes me smile to know that I still have two weeks to lose those last 4 lbs. before vacation!

  4. Keep it going! I think I need to schedule a vacation so I have a timeline for meeting my fitness goals. :)
