Rants & Raves

A quick few rants and raves for today...since Monday seems to be the best day to be annoyed...right?

1. Ice Bucket Challenges - let me just get this off my chest. First of all, I think it's great that people are actually donating money to a very worthy cause. However, why chain-letter people into dumping cold water on themselves? Why not just donate money to a worthy cause because you WANT to? Also, how many people are actually donating money to ALS organizations and how many are just posting funny videos of themselves getting dumped with cold water? I did hear that the ALS society has had their annual donations increased to like 4 million dollars or something. So that's good. But I just kind of abhor the trendiness of these videos and literally seeing everyone I know post them on social media. #stahp

Also, side note...this idea originally became popular about 6 months ago...but it's now popular again?

I don't know, y'all. I have mixed thoughts about this but mostly I loathe extremely trendy things so this turns me off. And if any of you tag me I will cut you. The end.

2. Pilling clothing - Are you supposed to shave your clothes? (sweaters, pants, etc.) I have a few that are pilling like crazy.

3. "Good Quality" clothes that fall apart. I have a pair of pants that are from New York and Company. I consider their clothes to be of good quality since their pricing usually reflects it. AND I've been shopping there for years and have had clothing last forever! However, I have 2 pairs of pants that fit great and I love...both of which are less than 6 months old...and both of which have had the hem fall out. I've had to fix the hem in both pants and one pair is ripping on the's so weird. Am I going to have to find another place to buy pants now?!?!

4. Allergies. Mine have been especially bad this week/weekend and I'm OVER THEM.

5. Loud neighbors. Again...done with them. I can't wait until M and I have a HOUSE to live in and can't see or hear our neighbors at all. HAHA!


  1. I was wondering the same thing about the ice bucket challenge-- who is donating and who is not. Honestly, it was cute for about 5 seconds. Now its on my "hide this post" list. If you like NY & Company pants-- I would Worthington work pants from JcPenney. They have several different cuts and I've had certain pairs for years that have yet to pill in the inner thigh.

  2. The videos are annoying, but we can scroll past them. You can't scroll past having ALS. Donations being so up (I think it's $10 million since this started) is truly wonderful. Some people don't have money to donate and want to raise awareness - no skin off my back. Some want to teach their kids about doing something in honor of someone else - that doesn't hurt me either.

  3. I agree with the ice bucket challenge - great cause, horrible "ask". Plus we're in a severe drought in SoCal so it stresses me out lol!

    I hope you're Monday has been well...well for a Monday ;)


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
