Happy Wednesday! I did a post about my observations last semester, and since then I have observed a few more things. Here are my recent observations.
1. Girls love posing with their hand on their hip. If you look on ANY form of social media, you will see an uncountable number of pictures in which girls have their hand on their hip. I am indeed guilty of doing this as well, and I hate myself for it. It really gets me and I feel like an a-hole every time I do it, but if the other people in the picture are doing it and you just leave your hand by your side, you will look awkward. It’s inevitable. And this is why being a girl is a constant struggle.
2. Saying “struggz” is a thing now. Apparently whenever you are struggling (or riding the struggle bus as I like to say), an exasperated sigh followed by groaning, “Ughh struggz!” is a proper way of dealing with your distress. I am a culprit of using dumb abbreviations and slang such as “totes,” “probs,” “presh,” and of course “YOLO,” but for some reason the use of “struggz” bothers me a bit.
3. People don’t know how to use a dollar sign. For example, if something costs six dollars, a vast majority of people write “6$.,” rather than correctly writing it as “$6.” Dude, did you not go to grade school?! The dollar sign comes before the numeral. I truly see more people misuse the dollar sign than I see them use it correctly, and that is SAD!
4. Using “y’all” in everyday conversation is not just for people from the south. I have noticed an increasing number of mid-western people using the term “y’all” on a fairly regular basis. I have used it when typing before, and have noticed it subconsciously creeping in to my vocabulary. I don’t know why this started, or when, but it seems as if everyone is saying it now.
I will most certainly have some more observations in the near future, but these are the most prominent at the moment.
Have a great rest of the week and thanks for reading
