Humane Things to Ban! (Hint: it’s NOT humans)

I was thinking today about the 2 things I hate with a passion. Cars and private schools. This got me thinking that if I was president, these would be the first 2 things I’d outlaw. Right off the bat. That was a pretty interesting thought, so now I’m compiling a list of all the things that would be outlawed if I was president. Cause hey, if a egotistical maniac can be America’s president, then so can I.

  1. Private Schools: Probably one of the worst things in the world to exist. It’s not the individual private schools that suck, I’m sure they’re fine,  it’s just the concept or idea of private schools. Another things parents have to cough up a crap ton of money for. Parents are downing in debt for having to send their kids to crazy expense private school and to crazier expensive college. Public schools should be improved! Funded! So paranoid little parents can send their kids there with the guarantee that they’re getting a good education! For free! Amazing!
  2. Cars: Refer to “I Sure Hope Life Isn’t a Highway, Cause I Hate I-95” to gain more insight into my hatred of cars. But seriously though public transportation needs to step up its game, and if I ban cars then public transportation will sky rocket. The environment will get better! People will stop being so angry all of the time! People won’t have to spend money on gas and crap!
  3. Large Hoop Earrings: Honestly, pretty ugly. I’d be doing everyone a favor.
  4. Veggie Straws: I’m tired of people shaming me for eating chips because they opt for the healthy veggie straw. This crap is gross. Vegans, man. How do they enjoy this?
  5. Pull Doors: I hate pull doors. Push is SO much better. And I automatically try to push every door so then when it turns out to be a pull door I get all flustered. So if I was president, bam, push doors, gone.
  6. That Paper That They Claim Is Toilet Paper: Let me begin with, THIS IS NOT TOILET PAPER. This is a napkin. NO this aint even a napkin. This is just paper. If I was president all of this would be gone, and the country would be 200 times happier because we’d all be using triple ply.
  7. 13 year olds: No one wants to deal with them.
  8. Stink bugs: I don’t know how I’d get them out, but I want them OUT. This is probably one issue everyone would agree with. This would be the grounds in which I base my campaign.
  9. Girls khaki pants: I don’t know about guys, but I can tell you I know no girl that enjoys khaki pants. They are horrible. They are so constraining. If you are a girl and you like khaki pants, please, let me know. Prove me wrong. But for all I know no girl likes these things.
  10. The Upstairs Section at Forever 21: I don’t like forever 21 but some people do so I can’t ban the whole thing. But the upstairs section is the worst. Such a mess and all the good stuff is downstairs too so the upstairs is just a big waste of time. Helps no one. The world doesn’t need that much forever 21.

Things I would NOT ban as president:

  1. An entire religion

There it is. The list of things I would outlaw and the list of things no one should even consider outlawing. If you have any suggestions please let me know so I can put them on the list in the future. I forgot so many things I’m sure, a bunch are even popping into my head right now. Socks that are that weird length between calf and ankle, beds that are too short for a 5′ person, and Moe’s. Why would anyone go to Moe’s.

P.S. I’m not going to ever be president in case you’re worried. That would be a disaster wouldn’t it. Almost like if Donald Trump was president. Oh wait… the disaster is real.

It’s not you, it’s the plot.

Anybody knows me knows that I am a TV phanatic. Watching TV is seen as a bad thing, but we all do it. Ive watched so many shows and I can go on and on to you about the shows I recommended and have rewatched 7 times, but instead of doing that I’ll tell you about the TV shows that were almost great, but didn’t quite make it. I never got hooked on them. They showed promise, I pretended to enjoy it, but they just lacked something so I never finished them.

All my failed TV relationships:

  1. Veep – I watched a good season and a half of this. I liked it but it was a little too much. A little too much going on, a little too much excessive cursing, and a little to much chaos. A show should have a lot of stuff happening so you are kept on your toes, but not too much that you feel overwhelmed. That’s the problem I had with veep. Also, there is not one quality character. I don’t have to like EVERY character, but there has to be one that I’m rooting for. All the characters on veep were dislikable. No redeeming characteristics. Maybe one day I’ll try veep again, but today is not that day. Type of breakup: It’s not you, it’s me (it’s actually you).
  2. Arrested Development – Arrested development was good. There was a couple characters I liked, it was funny, and it was pretty unique. It was just missing something and I found myself not wanting to watch more than one episode in a row. Which isn’t a common thing for me. I feel like I will try to watch this again but it won’t work out again. But maybe you’ll like it. It just wasn’t for me. Someone else also came into the picture (a different TV show). Type of Breakup: I’m seeing someone else.
  3. Reign – Reign and I were going so good. Reign had it all. It was amazing in every possible way. But then BAM one episode and it all falls apart. I try to get back into it but I can’t. I don’t want to give a big spoiler alert so I won’t say what happened, but it was a big fall out. Such a sad story. Type of Breakup: WE’RE DONE.
  4. The Fosters – I tried really hard to like the fosters. I watched it after I finished gossip girl, and was experiencing a rough time. It was destined not to work out. Plus, there were many flaws. The weird incest vibe going with the girl and her foster brother, the incredibly annoying lead character, and the repetitiveness of every single episode. Type of Breaking: I just got out of a long-term relationship and I was too quick to get into this.

There are all of my TV breakups. I’ve finally come to the point where I can talk about this. Just joking. Anyway, happy TV watching!

P.S. A follow up to “Walking on Sunshine (in February)”… I got out of school today! HALLELUJAH!

Hey Guys, Some Thoughts

Hey Guys,

So I was just thinking that maybe if we all decide to not do some things life would be better. All of our lives would be better. So if we all could just mull it over that would be great.

Some things that we all should just collectively stop doing:

  1. Eating eggs – I know that you guys like them but guys, they smell like crap. So maybe if we could just all stop so we didn’t have to smell it, that would be great.
  2. Going to school – Guys, come on, this is so unneccesary! If we all just stop then none of us would be smarter than each other so we could still get jobs and stuff! Cause guys, waking up at 6 am sucks! It’s miserable! So if we all decide that school is stupid and we don’t need it, that would be a-okay.
  3. Shaving legs – For real guys, lets stop. Who thought it was a good idea to scrape metal against our skin! That stuff is fragile! Like you push it too hard then bam you’re gushing out blood. And for guys shaving faces is necessary I guess cause beards get gross and stuff stays in the hair, but with legs, its not like legs catch crumbs! There is literally no purpose! So if we all decide to stop then it would become normal and we’d all get to stop torturing ourselves. Sounds great, right?
  4. Using chalkboards – Chalkboards are so gross. Guys. Just imagine nails on the chalkboard. And chalk dust on your hands. That is so gross. So lets just stop. Now we got whiteboards so what’s the point?
  5. Waking up before 8 am – I was going to say 9 am but I think that would be asking too much from you guys. So I’m being reasonable. 8 am is early enough. There is legitimately no point getting up before then. If we all just decide to get up at 8 am, nothing would happen before then and we’d all get the good nights sleep that we DESERVE. So let’s do it guys. Let’s make it happen.

So there it is guys. I hope you take it into consideration. The list goes on and on but I don’t want to overwhelm you so this is where I’ll leave it right now. Expect more though, cause I’ve got so many ideas. Anyway, thanks guys, you’re the best.

Tara L.

P.S Would you guys prefer I start writing love, or yours truly, or some crap like that? Cause if that’s what you want I’m totally up for it. You know what I say, anything for you guys!
