Five Things that Must be Left Behind in 2014

The things we must leave behind in 2014 graphic.

It’s amazing that 2015 is already here. (In fact, by the time I post this it will already be the new year for me.) Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday many of us were participating in that silly ice bucket challenge? Whatever happened to that, anyway?

With a new year, we say good-bye to 2014 and welcome new beginnings. Although this year brought catchy songs (Pharrell’s Happy and Taylor Swift’s Shake it Off), binge-worthy television series (True Detective), and plenty of viral cat videos, it also brought a lot of things that 2015 could really do without.

Here are the 5 things we all need to leave behind in 2014.

Boyfriend Problems (According to the Girlfriend)


If #BoyfriendProblems started trending on Twitter and my boyfriend actively used the social networking site and followed trends, what problems would he have? Because he has to put up with a lot of shit dating me. (That’s not to say I don’t have to put up with his shit–I do.)

Well, I decided to write those problems from my boyfriend’s perspective, according to me–the girlfriend.

An Open Letter to the Fitted Sheet

Dear Fitted Sheet,

An unfolded  green fitted sheet.

I’ve a bone to pick with you. Did you know that you are the most obnoxious household item, ever? I know it sounds quite harsh, but hear me out.

You are about as annoying as the dish drying rack, which never seems to be big enough to hold all of my recently cleaned dishes. Loading the dish drying rack is like playing a game of Tetris, except when I don’t put a piece in correctly, it all comes crashing down causing a lot of noise.

You’re also almost as irritating as trying to clean a strainer. I’m pretty certain it’s impossible to get every food bit while cleaning that thing. The most irksome part about you, fitted sheet, is how much I need you. At least with a dish drying rack, I could use a dishwasher. A colander could easily replace the need for a strainer.

But you, fitted sheet, I truly need you.

I Refuse to go Facebook Official

Add your Facebook relationship status.

Despite the fact that I have been in a committed relationship for the past three years, I still haven’t updated my Facebook relationship status to say so. Most people probably can’t wait to share the news with their friends. I know because I was once one of them. The type who can’t wait to receive 83 likes from their friends. But for me, I just never got around to it. And you know what? I probably won’t ever give the site the satisfaction. Why? There are a few reasons really.

Oh, that’s right. That was for tonight. I forgot I have to stay late at work. :(

The Voice inside Single Girl’s headWhat the hell?! First off, it took him… (uses fingers to count out the math)…an hour and forty minutes to even respond back to my text! Secondly, he forgot!? Well you know what? I won’t even respond back. Or if I do, it will be three hours from now.

If Life were an exam, the above scenario would be question number 34. I assume that the example from above should feel quite familiar to most. And if not, I guess either I’m alone here or you’re all in denial. Hopefully, you will continue following along anyway.
