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 setbacks here and there and while it’s been argued that life isn’t life if there isn’t at a bit of struggle, the kind of inconvenience I’m talking about are the little things, those tiny elements that can ruin a mood or mess with your entire schedule. I hate that shit. So today I’m gonna provide you with some scenarios I’ve dealt with and tell you how they’ve disrupted 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 uni which is “Step correct.” And it means is exactly what 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 stop abruptly in front of someone, 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 ahead and if you’re at a traffic light crossing and there are no cars, THEN CROSS THE DAMN ROAD! You know stuff like that. You can’t imagine how many times I’ve cruised through streets and town centres and have constantly been pissed off by the people around me. 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 small 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 people and there’s no avoiding it or when the bus/train makes unnecessary/unexpected stops. Sometimes it’s just a random accident or something to do with the weather, but then you have to ask yourself “Why did this have to happen to me today?” Many a time that has happened to me primarily 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 rain is 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 the day, plus any activities you wish to do outside when the rain is involved gets cancelled like playing football, doing picnics, chilling 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, it just causes delays or shuts nearly everything 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 student can tell you that sometimes it can be a hindrance more so than a helpful experience. For all the knowledge gained, 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 are points when uni throws you several projects your way 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 my ramblings have been insightful and if you’ve had any similar experiences please be sure to comment about it below. Until the next time people, laters. 🙂
