Five More Unpopular Opinions


If you don't remember my last unpopular opinions post (read it here), I shared five of my opinions that are potentially unconventional or controversial and I'm back to do it again! So, here are five more:


1. Ariana Grande is overrated.


2. Valentine's Day is a cheap, consumerist excuse to pretend your relationship is more wonderful that it really is.


3. Pop Psychology isn't funny or cute, it pushes tired, old, and gendered stereotypes....


4. To - do lists are useless and pointless.


5. Millennial pink is a hideous shade. Rose gold is superior.



Agree? Disagree?
Come fight me in the comments!

  1. I actually like Valentine's Day because I think it gives a nice excuse/reminder to do something nice with your partner and for both of us, it's really easy to get caught up in daily tasks and not take much time for ourselves. I also don't know what I'd do without to-do lists. I'd forget half the things I need to get done.

    1. I guess that makes sense for couples that are happy together, but sadly not even Valentine's can fix a relationship that's crumbling. Maybe that's always been my experience....*ponders*

  2. I agree with the rose gold comment. But I don't agree with the to-do list point. I've worked from a to-do list every day for the last 3 or so years of my life and I'm more productive than I've ever been. I thrive off of lists and notes and writing things down so without a to-do list, I'm useless.

Etiquette Rules I (Personally) Find Pointless

Etiquette is a tricky realm in which to maneuver. Often, it varies from place to place and country to country. What's polite in one area of the world (slurping your noodles in Japan = 🖒) could be considered unfathomably rude elsewhere. So, let's approach this from a modern, millennial etiquette perspective, shall we?

Five Etiquette Rules I (Personally) Find Pointless

1.) Handwritten Thank You Notes- I try to be an environmentally friendly and conscious individual, truly I do. And I think that is perhaps why I have such a beef with "thank you" cards. Actually, any cards. Holiday cards, birthday cards, get-well-soon cards....it's all just paper. And it's all going to end up in the trash or recycling.

That tree died for something I glanced at for 30 seconds. If you truly want to thank me for something or wish me well, just email or text. Let me know in person next time you see me. If we are bosom buddies, you may even have permission to call and tell me.

2.) A…

What to Wear to an Interview: Creative Edition

Let me preface: It's been a while since I've been to a job interview and the last time I interviewed it was for an Admin Assistant position. How you dress for a formal office role can easily differ from how you might dress for a more creative role - like digital marketing or social media management.

On Friday, I have an interview in downtown St Paul for an entry-level 'marketing communications' job and I'm . . . for lack of a better word - scrambling.

I don't own a pair of simple black trousers or a dress suit. My one black blazer (as you will see) is a little finicky and hard to coordinate. And I do not have a single pair of weather appropriate shoes that would not look horrendously out of place in a corporate environment.

(With regards to weather appropriateness - we just got another 8 inches of snow today. Ewww.)

So, I decided to scour my wardrobe to see what I could put together that would not only be interview appropriate but also fit the role of a creative…
