So today, I must admit is quite a random blogpost but it’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while now and thought why the heck not eh?! It is simply just some of the things I can’t quite understand.
You know the things that you cannot find the rhyme nor the reason to why it or they are as they are? Well, this post will disclose some of those, the things that box my brain and confuse me no end. Some are more irrelevant than others, for example the very first in the list which was spurred on due to the beautiful cherry print Bardot top from Topshop. So without further a do, here is a list of a few of the things I just do not understand.
*Disclaimer: I appreciate in the grand scheme of the world, these really aren’t pressing issues to address, however just a bit of fun. I know the majority of you will know this, but you know, JIC*
1.Why are cartoon cherries coloured red?
The actual fruit is more of a burgundy almost deep purple shade, so why oh why do we draw and design them “cherry red?” I appreciate that glacier cherries are “cherry red” but that’s not what is drawn on my top now is it? No! It’s a fully fledged fresh red cherry, so why is it red? Answers on a postcard plz.
2. Online Meanies
Why do people feel the need to be cruel online? This is something that has always boxed my brain, from way back in the MySpace days when bitchy bulletins were a thing! I simply don’t understand how some people think that being behind a keyboard gives them a right of way to spread hate, to bitch and to be down right cruel to others online. Bullying is something that has affected me my whole life, and whilst it has made me a much stronger person in the long run, it is something that needs to stop and needs to stop NOW!
I’ve not experienced trolling much in my 4 and a half years online, however, as my YouTube channel slowly grows and from time to time a video is featured on the UK trending page, I do receive the odd mean message from people who have accidentally found there way onto my channel. These people are totally irrelevant to me, usually middle aged men who for some reason chose to click on my fashion video whilst on the search for football, racing or prank videos, but why they choose to then take the time and the effort to spread hate is truly and utterly beyond me. It’s something that I cannot comprehend and completely confuses the hell out of me. You don’t like me or the content I’m creating so please politely click that little X at the side of your screen… It’s really quite simple.
3. Those who don’t check airline rules before travelling.
I’ve been travelling quite a bit recently, which means a heck load of queueing at security terminals. And whilst, I know that not everyone has travelled before, I don’t think thats excuse enough for trying to board a plane with everything but the kitchen sink AMIRIGHT!? If you haven’t travelled before or for a while then surely you’d check online/ask a m8, for what you can and cannot take on a plane with you in your hand luggage. The amount of times I am the lucky soul who is stuck behind a person, or even worse… A group of people who have packed their entire bathroom cabinet in their cabin bag. Even funnier when it’s a man who loudly blames his wife “I can’t believe she’s packed this” “As if she’s packed my razors in my hand luggage” “Oh Wendy, how could you pack this FULL SIZED shampoo and conditioner in my hand luggage” I mean, mate, you’re a 50 year old man, PACK YOUR OWN BLOODY SUITCASE, pretty sure thats the law anyway fella.
4. Why can’t men make beds?
Now this is a huge sweeping statement, and I have to say, I only have my boyfriend and my dad as case studies for this point but why the heck can’t men make beds? They see how us ladies carefully and beautifully arrange the bed every morning, so the question is why do they insist on building a fort with the cushions, experimenting with folds when rearranging the throw and SWAPPING your much loved and much tried and tested pillows over… WHY!?
5. Where do my hair clips go to die?
Now we all agree on the ole black sock saga, I mean srsly where do they go to die? But recently it’s been my big bulldog style hair clips that I like to use to get my sweaty af fringe off my face once the working day is done, that have been going walkabouts. I’ve probably bought around 20 of these in the past year and this very moment, at 10pm as I’m writing this post, I am without a single one of them and my greasy fringe is pecking my head!!!
6. Why Londoners think Manchester is on a different planet?
Manchester has always been approximately four hours away from London by car (on a good traffic day) and it’s always been 2 hours and 10 minutes away by train, since the dawn of good ole Virgin Trains that is. So why is it that I’m left with open mouths and one almighty GASP whenever I explain that I’ve come down from Manchester for the day…
C’mon Londoners, Manchester aint the back and beyond.
7. Why does my hair decide to have a bad hair day the day I need it to have a good hair day
This speaks for itself… Something that will forever baffle me, why must you disobey me like this hair WHY!?
So there we go, just a few pointless things I currently do not understand about life. Things that are not pressing issues just a little bit of fun, a totally random and rather pointless blog post some might say, but hey, I like to mix things up around here sometimes. And after my last, rather sad blog post, I thought a little lighthearted post was in order.
Some might also say that I should have rounded the number of confusing things up to 10, yeah… I thought that too, but I could only think of seven. SORRY.
Let me know if you agree with any of these 7 and please lets chat about what confuses the hell outta you too, I think this could be a funny ole comments section.
I also wanted to let you know that this is the last blog post from me for the next 9 days, there is something VERY exciting happening over here on 20th August so make sure you’re tuned in… You’re gonna love it!
