8 Things I Have Very Strong Feelings About

Everybody has a random list of things that they have very strong feelings about. Here are eight things that I think about on a regular basis and know I’m right about.

Condemn vs. Commend

It should be illegal for these two words to have such opposing definitions. I mean, are you kidding me? It’s practically asking me to mix them up and send off majorly confusing and conflicting vibes. Who's responsible for this? Did they know what they were doing? It’s never too late to change things.

Alphabetizing

I go hard for alphabetizing. It’s the best organizational task out there, hands down. The satisfaction of watching an unorganized mess of a pile slowly transform into a beautiful, neat alphabetized collection? Unmatched.

Wednesday

Wednesday is the best day of the week. I know what you’re thinking: “Wednesday? What about Saturday?” and I hear you, I do, but hear me out. It would be outright disrespectful of me not to acknowledge that Saturday follows as an incredibly close second, so I’d like to start there. Wednesday is the day of hope. It’s the point during the week where you feel like you can do it, you can make it through the rest of the week. That halfway point is what keeps the burnout from hitting before you can make it to Friday. If accepting Wednesday’s rightful title as the best day of the week is difficult, I recommend starting by accepting that it is the best weekday. 

Thursday

I can’t talk about Wednesday being the best day of the week without also discussing the worst day of the week. Thursday is awful. Monday usually gets the “Worst Day of the Week Award,” but let’s be honest with ourselves. Mondays suck, sure, but at least they’re honest about what they are. Thursday, on the other hand? They sneak up on you in their awfulness. We all know what Thursdays are made up of: “Yay, it's Fri- oh wait, it’s Thursday, isn’t it?” and it's a constant disappointment thinking you’ve almost made it to the weekend. (Let's be honest— not even a Monday would do that to you.) I will accept only Tuesday as a close second.

The Number 5

The number five and all of its multiples have the same energy as even numbers. Obviously half of the multiples of five are already even, but all of the ones ending in five give off the exact same energy. I think a big part of it is that they’re easily counted — like even numbers — so they feel very automatic. 

High School Economics 

Why the hell did I take this class in high school? Who decided that high school seniors need to have a very basic understanding of economics more than they need to know how to do their taxes? I’m not going to break the law if I don’t understand economic theories, but if I do my taxes wrong, I’m going to jail! The priorities are really mixed up here. They should — at the very least — be incorporating personal finances and financial literacy into the curriculum. 

Champagne

Champagne tastes like how sparklers look and nothing will change my mind. I don’t really have much else to say about this, it’s just true.

A "whole nother"

This doesn’t exist. There is no such thing as a "whole another." What is a singular "nother"? What makes it whole or not? I’ve never done the research but I am completely convinced that the word "another" stems from people saying “an other.” If that’s the case, then "a whole nother" makes absolutely no sense. It should be "a whole other." Why are we just accepting this?

Obviously, you agree with everything on this list, but what else do you have strong feelings about?
