What's something you're tired of having to explain to people?

I KNEW this question seemed familiar. 🤣
- why I am not a believer and have no issues if others are, just want to be left alone with that topic (100% they never understand)- why vaccinating if there is no underlining big health scares is the ONLY thing you can do for yourself AND the community around you- why I don't want to keep traditions that don't make sense- why I don't want to eat meat all the time because I don't need that in order to survive and thrive- why I want to be independent and not spend the weekends with parents (this is about me, so you do you :p)

+ Why I leave well-paying jobs that don't support my emotional well-being and personal priorities+ Why I take naps every day+ Why I don't want to go to brunch just because now we can+ Why I'm not afraid to cut off toxic family members + Why my partner and I do homemade or low price point gifts for anniversaries/birthdays/holidays even though we make good money

It's just the *perfect* solution to me being a night owl by nature and needing to be an aspirational early bird.

"Why my partner and I do homemade or low price point gifts for anniversaries/birthdays/holidays even though we make good money"Nothing beats homemade gifts!
So tired of explaining that....- NO I'm not from North Korea but South Korea- NO I'm not Chinese or Japanese- NO I don't understand nihao or arigato- My English is "good" because I grew up here. Surprise surprise I also went to an ivy league school.- I live in an apt and rent. Stop asking why I'm not buying a house at my age.

LOL! People are unnecessarily fucking awkward...And why the hell do they need to know your origin story? I've known you for 5 seconds, how about a simple, "So, did you catch the latest episode of Loki?" vs. "Tell me about your struggles". 🤣And YASSS!!! Apartment renting is LIVE for me!Just thinking about the labor and costs of maintaining a house, even at my age of 40, I'm like - #apartmentlife
People are also ignorant!!!! LOL

The very first time that I went on Spring Break, with a friend, we were both adamant about laying on the beach & getting dark chocolate. So to help speed up the process, we slathered ourselves in baby oil, laid on the beach, and cooked for days. And it WORKED! I was dark choco-la-ta-tay & feeling good!Then when we got back to university I noticed these weird white flakes on my arms...My shoulders...Hunh? What are these?...My roommates & some friends didn't know what it was either, until someone finally told me, "Oh, you're sunburnt". And my reaction, and my friends reaction were the same, "Black people get sunburned"??? LOL! Yeah, it can definitely happen - ESPECIALLY if your gENiuS enough to use baby oil to fry yourself like bacon in a skillet, under South Beach, Miami sun. LMAO!

Oh I was fine! It wasn't like it hurt or anything. I was just embarrassed by all the damn flaking I was doing, so I was CONSTANTLY slathering myself with cocoa/shea butter so I didn't look like my "ashiness" was out of control. LOL!
