Daily First World Struggles for a White Girl

Putting yoga pants on backwards because I wear them so often that the printed tag on the back has worn off.


Wanting to belt out Alanis Morissette’s Hand in my Pocket but never correctly singing what the other hand is doing. Is it giving a high five? Smoking a cigarette? Hailing a taxi cab?

Binge watching season 1 of (enter stupid drama here) in approximately 10 hours, and being devastated that season 2 is not available.

Running out of skips on Spotify.

When the shower water is too cold, but moving the dial one fraction to the right? My skin burns off.

Having to stop and get gas. Double struggle if it’s rainy/windy/cold.

Knowing I have a full DVR waiting for me at home, but having to go do things like, work.

Starbucks without a drive-thru.

Daily functions that require putting on a “real” bra and/or “real” pants.

Forgetting to charge my laptop, so I have to look at Pinterest and Facebook on my phone.

Messing up the rap part in my favorite pop songs.

Running out of Barefoot Riesling.

    So after reading this, it’s official: we ARE in fact the same person. We basically should have been bffs in college. Damnit!

      If I wasn’t such a dweeb we should have been! You are so cool and I was totally intimidated! Now, I realized that’s just silly because we ARE the same person.

      • Calla says:

        That made me LOL because I am the biggest nerd everrrrr I promise I am not cool!! I think my entire family would gladly attest to this! :) If we ever get to move back to Richmond, we will hang out (basically this means eat and drink wine)!

  2. Not just white girls, my friend. These are brown girl problems as well! H a!

  3. You probably wouldn’t run out of wine if you didn’t invite me over to drink 2 bottles ;) But seriously, Starbucks without a drive thru? WHY DOES THAT EVEN EXIST!!!???

  4. Literally everything on this list makes my heart happy.

  5. Hahahah this is so awesome!

    As my high school students would say: #TheStruggle I 100% agree with you about having to put on a real bra & real pants. What the heck?!?!

  7. wait…. your starbucks have drive-thrus? Man, I need to write a first world CANADIAN post, because we have less than you guys. But we do have barefoot wine, yummy yummy barefoot wine.

  8. Bahahah I love this. Story of my life, seriously. My boyfriend said to me the other day “sooo how many times a week do you wear those black spandex?” HEY BACK OFF.

  9. Ashley says:

    I think Starbucks should only be allowed to open if they have a drive-thru option!

  10. oh dear god i just spit out my water at work laughing at this. why? because it is so darn true. We can’t deny that.

  11. Megan says:

  15. atastelife says:

    fantastic list! i can relate.

  16. Chelsea says:

    Haha this is hilarious, and so accurate! I would also add that sometimes my puppy wants me to play with him too much. (I love playing with him but I think after an hour of tug-of-war we should get a break!)

  17. Erica says:

    I legit LOL’ed at Alanis. And the yoga pants – did that the other day for the same reason.
