Every week, I have trouble deciding what to write about. Well, maybe not every week. Some weeks have things like Powder Puff and bursts of inspiration about french fries to write about. But most weeks I am forced to decide what I can write about that won’t make me want to shoot myself halfway through.
This week, I had some okay ideas. In between Charlie Hebdo and the Oscars, there is enough going on that I should have an opinion about one of them. But I opted for none of the above. Instead, I went back to an old idea I had. It’s a list of things that make me sad. Unsurprisingly, most of them have to do with school.
Although this post will not exactly earn me a Pulitzer (not that any of these posts will), I hope it’s more enjoyable to you than if I didn’t post something at all.
So here it is — nineteen things that make me sad:
My alarm clock
The little click my alarm clock makes right before it goes off
Every class except for first because that’s just TA-ing for Harlow
That swim practice is starting soon (12 days)
The cell phone policy
The tardy policy (it makes me feel like I can’t go to the bathroom between classes)
When my phone is at 49% before lunch
When I can’t sleep
When I don’t have a new playlist to listen to and hate the songs on my old one
Whenever people think Paul Ryan has made a good point
That we’ve only been rehearsing Bye Bye Birdie for two weeks and there’s already only 44 days until opening night (plus weekends)
The computer mouse we have to use on the desktop computer at home so my brother can play his precious MineCraft that’s very sensitive and won’t let me highlight things
When I go on Pandora and it plays songs I don’t like until I’m out of skips
When Spotify does the same thing
When I have no money for iTunes
When I have no money
The fact that the school year isn’t over yet
