Things I Want To Get Rid Of In 2013


There are probs going to be a lot of these lists floating around, but I think they’re all pretty legit. I mean, there are things I want to get rid of in the new year that others don’t and vice versa. Everyone has different preferences, you know? I’m feeling like 2013 could be a good one. Especially if we leave some shit behind. A lot of shit actually.

So here are a few things that I really, really, really want to never encounter in 2013. We survived the apocalypse, but these things shouldn’t survive New Year’s Eve:

Yolo-because I really can’t take it anymore. Every time I say it, I feel like Lord Voldemort probably did when he made a horcrux. We have to stop.

Bath salts-because salts should be for your bath, exfoliation, and seasoning your food. Not for gnawing on flesh and going absolutely apeshit. Knock it off.

Hipsters-because you’re annoying.

Bad TV-because with shows like Homeland and GIRLS, ain’t nobody got time for crap television.

Slut shaming-because single people have the right to sleep with whoever they want whenever they want. If it’s your choice and you’re okay with what you’re doing, great. Your sex life is nobody’s business.

Government all up in our vaginas-because regardless of your political stance, old dudes don’t need to be legislating our lady parts and telling us how our bodies do or don’t work.

Wedding boards on Pinterest-because there are secret boards now so you can pin your fake wedding in private and stop blowing up my feed with your desperateness.

Apple making us buy all the things-because making a new power cord for iPhones was the actual worst thing ever and selling the adapter for thirty bucks is really mean and Steve Jobs wouldn’t have wanted it this way.

Not knowing what’s happening in the world-because you have access to news 24/7 and you should stop stalking your ex on Facebook long enough every day to read up on current events.

Social media fights-because if you’re arguing over Twitter, you need to find a new day job.

Asking questions that you can Google-because I don’t have time for questions that you can ask your smart phone and internet. Use your technology, bro.

What do you want to leave behind in 2013? Tell me in the comments!
