Tuesday Hatred: All y'allI hate colloquial abbreviations of pronouns, especially "ya" and "'em." I am willing to tolerate "y'all," but only in the context of the phrase "fuck all y'all."
I hate taking a cab. Late at night, sometimes it seems like a better option, but I always watch the meter and get more and more antsy. $7 to get home! I could've paid $2 for the CTA! I'll never understand people who take a cab because they're running late -- just be late, I say.
I sometimes hate the "always on" aspect of graduate study and academia in general. You know how a lot of people have a defined time when they're working, then they are able to relax and enjoy themselves outside of that time? I can relax and enjoy myself to a certain degree, but it's to the point where I am instrumentalizing it -- the ultimate goal is to make me better able to work, and when it gets excessive, I start to worry that I'm somehow falling behind.
