Howdy people and welcome to another instalment in my blogging rants. Today’s rant will be on something that has bothered me for years, but has only become realised since coming to university. I am of course talking about being inconvenienced.
Let’s face it, everyone loves life when things are going their way. And the way I see it, that only applies to rich people, those who have no worldly possessions or old people who have nothing left to do because they’ve lived their lives already. Everyone else has to face some roadblocks here and there and most would say life isn’t life if their isn’t at least a bit of struggle. But the kind of inconvenience I’m talking about is the little things, just those tiny elements that can ruin a mood or mess with your entire schedule. I hate that shit. So today I’m gonna paint you some scenarios I’ve been and tell you how they’ve inconvenienced me.
Okay let’s begin.
Yes believe or not, I get pissed off with the way some people walk as that can become an inconvenience on a near-daily basis. Now I live my life by a little quote I made since coming to you which is “Step correct.” What that means is exactly how it is said, but if that doesn’t help here’s a better explanation. Basically when you’re walking in the street be smart about it, step swiftly, don’t move in slow motion and delay people behind you, avoid unnecessary body contact, if you see an opening in front of you slip through and go on ahead or if you’re at a traffic light crossing and there’s no cars, THEN FUCKING CROSS THE DAMN ROAD! You stuff like that. I can’t imagine how many times I’ve cruised through streets and town centers and have constantly been pissed off by the people around me. I just don’t like being delayed. Maybe I’m just an aggressive walker lol.
Whether it be buses or trains, public transportation just screams “inconvenience” at one point or another. It is the little things like when your bus/train comes late when you expected it to be on time or when you have to get on-board and it is full of loads of people and there’s no avoiding it or when the bus/train makes unnecessary/unexpected stops. To all of these scenarios above you just have to ask, why? Sometimes it really is just random accident or something to do with the weather, but the you ask yourself “Why did this have to happen to me today?” Many a time that has happened to me and it has mainly happened on trains, and it sucked.
Weather (Mainly Snow)
Oh weather, how you love to mess with people and change whenever you want, you asshole. I don’t normally complain about the weather unless there is rain involved… Or something far worse, snow. For me all I’ll ever need weather-wise is the sun and a bit of wind from time to time. That’s it. Rain is just wet and puts a downer on a day, plus any activities you wish to do outside when the rain’s involved gets cancelled like playing football, doing picnics, chill in the park, etc. The same rule applies to snow, but it is amplified by 10 times. Snow just messes with travel whether you’re on-foot, in a car or taking public transport just causes delays or shuts things down completely. Sometimes the weather can be the biggest inconvenience ever and it just pisses me off to the highest degree!
When it comes to education that should never be considered an inconvenience, however any college or university can tell you that sometimes it can be a hinderance more so than a helpful experience. For all the things you learn, sometimes you don’t actually learn a lot and if you have other things going on in your life like having a job or if you travel a lot because you live away from home or have a massive social life, then uni will eat away at your time. And then there’s point when uni throws you several projects at once which means you have to try to manage your time overall multiple modules, all of which require your attention because they are very important to your final grade. This leads to unnecessary stress, procrastination and decision-making that feels more complicated than it should be.
Well that’s it really. I hope this has been an insightful rant and if you’ve had any similar experiences please be sure to comment about it in comments below. Until the next time people, laters. 🙂
