Lay it all out there: Things that make me uncomfortable


I’ve decided to sort of half participate in Jenni from Storyof my Life’s “Blog Everyday in May” challenge… get ready for more rambling and randomness from me than you could probably ever want!


The reason I say I’m half participating is because while I do plan to try and blog almost everyday in May, I already have some things that are going to make that challenging – like a vacation – so I don’t want to say I’m 100% going to succeed. And, Jenni was extra awesome and came up with topics for all of us bloggers to write about every day if we were experiencing a bit of writer’s block, but I don’t plan on using those prompts every single day since I already have some other posts planned – like my DIY pallet couch for next week!

But bottom line, I was excited to stumble on Jenni’s blog, add her super cute button to my sidebar, and linkup with a ton of other bloggers on the days that I do follow the prompts. Today’s “things that make me uncomfortable” topic is insanely simple for me considering I am generally a very squrmish, prude and awkward person :). So, here ya go, a list of 4 things that make me incredibly uncomfortable. There are obviously a million more, but I decided to keep this short and sweet.

1. Close talkers. I am a big fan of personal space, and will never understand why some people feel the need to stand *this* close to someone they are talking to. I hate the feeling of trying to inch away without being rude, only to have the person follow your lead and continue to inch closer.

2. Full-grown people that are smaller than me. I KNOW, I’m a horrible person. People cannot help their size. But I’m pretty small, so when someone is a lot smaller than me, I get really thrown off and don’t know what to do. I would like to think this is mostly because I have spent my entire life looking UP to people because I’ve always been short, so looking down at someone is just unnatural… but in all honesty it’s really just a bratty thing about me that I’d love to change.

3. When sex is talked about in a vulgar fashion. Take for instance the movie “Friends With Kids,” which Dan and I watched together a couple weeks ago. I loved it and was cracking up half the time because they did such a great job (I think) of showcasing real life. But then the last line of the movie was (spoiler alert) “Let me f*** the s*** out of you”… um, what? This was a guy that was professing his love to a girl. Really? It made me squirm, and sort of honestly ruined the rest of the movie for me. Given this explanation, it's probably no surprise to anyone that knows me that I have never seen a porn. Ever. Just the thought of it creeps me out.

4. When people ask me how much I make, or what I paid for my house, car, wedding, etc. Interestingly enough, I'm pretty willing to spill all the details on most of those things and more without much thought, but I like to do it on my own accord. If someone asks me flat out about finances, I think it's super awkward and rude, but if I decide to do it myself, no biggie.

In case anyone is wondering, just leaving this list at 4 (and not 3 or 5) was uncomfortable to me. I feel like lists are never in 4's, but I couldn't think of a 5th thing I was dying to share to anyone that wanted to read. :)

What makes you uncomfortable? Any fun plans for the weekend in store?
