Things That I Hate

Untalented People Who Think They’re Amazing

I’m a teenager and am constantly bombarded with horrible “poetry” and “stories” from my idiot peers. The correct way to write something is to plan it out first, not spend all of your time writing a lengthy first five chapters only to abandon the whole project.

Secondly, length does not equate to talent. The Gift of the Magi is a thrilling tale that can be told in less than five minutes.

Thirdly, using “complex” words you found while attempting to memorize the Merriam-Webster Thesaurus does not necessarily mean you are intelligent. If you use the words incorrectly, you look like even more of a pretentious moron. Congratulations.

  1. Funny how the right amount of confidence is often a fine line. Confidence is very important—you don’t want to be unconfident in your ability to do anything, or you’ll end up doing nothing—but you don’t want to be overconfident either.
