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.

⛤ How I Fell In Love With Crystals ⛤

When I was eight years old, I accompanied my grandmother to Washington state to visit my uncle, who lived out there with his wife at the time. While there, we took a trip up to Mount Rainier - driving up the windy, fogged-covered roads in an old pick-up truck and stopping for herds of silently moving deer crossing the pavement. There were a couple of stops along the way to admire a small waterfall or nab a photo of the rushing creak water under a bridge. 
But it was up at the top, inside the gift shop, that I found something that spoke to me.
There was a large bin of gemstones, each of them available for about $0.25. I remember digging through pieces of jagged chunks of amethyst and quartz until my tiny child fingers wrapped around the perfect one.


Like pulling the sword from the stone, I was meant to have this particular piece of quartz. Rounded and cloudy at the end, with a sharp pyramid tip, it was exactly the kind of quartz crystal you'd expect to see at the end of a magic wand o…

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…

The Goal-Getter Playbook Review

Work has been hectic lately; there have been a lot of changes within the company I work for and while change is inevitable (and usually good) it can leave me feeling a little scattered and directionless. 
So it was the perfect time to look at setting some goals for myself, determining what I'm truly passionate about and what steps I need to take to turn that passion into something that works for me, instead of against me. 
Enter The Goal-Getter Playbook:

The Goal-Getter Playbook is so much more expansive and in-depth than any other life planner I've ever considered - and it goes way beyond career planning - this playbook will help you organize, manage, and maximize your entire life. No stone is left unturned here. 
Now, I need to preface: I'm not a "goal setter". I don't like plans or schedules, time blocking, penciling in self-care, color-coding my Outlook calendar, etc. I'm more of a go-with-the-flow, works well last minute and under pressure, que sera s…
