- TAYLOR SWIFT, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, techno, most rap.

20. Free rant on whatever grinds your gears at the moment.
- People - namely internet celebs [namely YouTubers] - get sooo much praise for not doing anything at all! "She wrote a book! She's supernatural!" No, she's not. Shut up. People write books all the time. "She's a solo traveller! How inspiring!" No, she rode an airplane by herself. She got picked up at the airport. That is not miraculous IN ANY WAY. Ugh I just get so irritated when people who don't deserve praise receive it, and those who are worthy of it are ignored.
