Happy Friday + FINAL DAY OF MY SEPTEMBER BLOGGING CHALLENGE! Man, it feels like this month kind of flew by, doesn’t it? I was slightly intimidated by being set to a designated topic everyday, but to be honest – it was so refreshing. It really took me back to why I love blogging, which is sharing a small part of my heart with all of you. If you are new around here or missed my blogging challenge announcement post, I’ve been feeling a little bit uninspired by blogging and social media and I wanted to bring it back to where it all began…little old me behind my keyboard tapping away. And so – that’s what I did! I knew there are “blog every day” challenges, but honestly – I don’t blog every day as it is, so committing to 30 days was intimidating for me. Instead, I put together 20 prompts that really inspired me and whipped up a list for the whole month. We tackled fun topics (5 Celeb Crushes) and more serious topics (Highs + Lows Of The Past Year), but through it all, hearing the feedback from all of you about bringing blogging “back to basics” was just thrilling. I thought I was alone! In any case – let’s close out this fun little experiment with one last topic. Today’s prompt is My Pet Peeves and it’s one we can all relate to, because we all have them, right? Right!
My Pet Peeves
Pet peeves – we all have them right? Typically they come from what people are doing (or not doing) and the insanity starts there. Then, there are just life things that get ya….Here are a few of mine:
Listening to people eat – if I can hear you chewing, you are doing it wrong! But seriously – eating cereal with other people in the room should be a crime and chewing with your mouth open….come on, that’s gross.
My time not being respected. There is nothing more grating to me than having someone show up late, report late to a call or completely cancel at the last minute. You’ve wasted my time AND THAT IS RUDE!
Toppers. We all have them in our life. You know – the people who can top anything you’ve ever done. You visited relatives in Florida? They have gone twice. You checked out a new restaurant this week? They went last week and are going again. You wore underwear? They did it better.
Getting into bed and not taking a shower. This just seem so gross to me!
Imitation is not the sincerest form of flattery – it’s annoying. In a creative world, this is something that I deal with more than I’d like to admit. What happened to wanting to be original?
Dog hairs on my bed.
When someone tries to talk over me.
I am a shed monster, so seeing my long hair everywhere should be normal right? Doesn’t matter – my own shedding annoys me!
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in my September Blogging Challenge – this has been really fun for me and I appreciate everyone following along! If you shared your pet peeves today, feel free to link them up below or share a few in the comments! What drives you mad?
