I Move The Stars For No One
1. Mouth sounds in general, specifically someone smacking while they chew their food.

2. People who try to minimize or invalidate another persons pain/misfortune by comparing it to their own.

3. People who cling to me when I'm very clearly done with the hug and trying to pull away.

4. Multiple people trying to talk to me all at once, while also trying to talk over each other.

5. People hovering very close to me when I'm doing something.

It really gets under my skin when people claim to have a mental disorder just to sound “cool” or “fit in.”

Like, maybe I’m just super sensitive, but it actually bothers me? “Oh yeah, I have depression and anxiety too!” But they’ve never been diagnosed, they function 100% normally but they self diagnosed themselves because sometimes they feel the least bit sad or nervous 🙃

When people speak up about very valid and concerning issues and instead of hearing them through and asking them how you can help, you redirect their conversations or dismiss it entirely. You tell them they're overreacting and do absolutely nothing to make them feel better, safer, or more comfortable.

When you're just taking a nap or started your lunch, that very minute everyone and their parents is calling you, texting you, sending you emails and asking questions!

Eating noises and being asked what I'm doing or questions about the thing I'm doing constantly. Trying to figure out how to tell my roommate to leave me alone to let me do my thing but her anxiety is what drives all the questions so idk if there's a happy solution. : (

One of my BIGGEST pet peeves is open mouth chewing--I cannot describe how much I hate it
I also hate when people tap on things when it's quiet

I get distracted, please poke if I don't respond
When people say "happy Christmas!"

Like, no. It's either "happy holidays" or merry Christmas". Please don't mix the two X'D

I hate gangster talk, and the uneducated slang that comes with it. I really don't like how crass it can be, and how sexual and offensive it gets.

And for a non weird pet peeve LOUD CHEWERS

Basic, easily checkable errors in published books. No typos and stuff but like ... just things that are wrong.

Not one but two books by different authors set in Faerie courts where the author doesn't know what the Solstice is. Book one: "The Solstice is when the days and nights are of equal length," NO smh that's an Equinox. Book two: "The Autumn Solstice" NO there is no Autumn solstice, it's an E Q U I N O X. You did all this research on faerie lore and you couldn't even look at the Junior Atlas? Unless this is some kind of bizarre US English usage where you get solstices four times a year?!

Also some author talking about "kabuki masks" like that's a thing. Would it take you OR the team of editors working on the book more than one minute to just check this?!

I think my true role in life is to be a continuity reader or something. XD

Don't tell me to calm down, breath, stop feeling that feeling or any other iteration when I am clearly upset. Like let me feel my feelings and even better acknowledge that my feelings are legitimate and valid. I don't need calming down I need support I'll calm down once it's out of my system. I can't just stop I struggle with regulating emotions it comes with my brainpot of illnesses. Telling me to calm down isn't helpful and it's counter productive.

I hate when people offer vague, very obvious solutions to complex problems and then act as if they have personally solved that problem forever.

This, a thousand times over.

Like, if I'm on the verge of/having an anxiety attack, the absolute last thing I want to here is "just calm down/just relax" or any variation of those. It legitimately pisses me off.

The way schools can never be too careful about making sure everyone knows exactly when and where every sportsball game is taking place that semester and how to purchase a ticket, but will make actual important information like how to switch classes only accessible by making five phone calls and a trip through the astral.

It's widely known that telling someone to "calm down" makes them angry. We had conflict resolution training on this for my work once. XD

I'm actually going to put fiction written in first person for no reason into my pet peeves list. I've listened to/ read about 7 books in a row in first person and only one of them actually benefited from that. I'm starting to find 1st person annoying in general.

Whenever I'm sitting and eating with someone and they get food on their mouth or somewhere on their face and just leave it there, I just want to shift into the air. Also when I'm talking to someone and they either aren't listening and I have to explain everything over again or if they fall asleep.

When I answer a question, and someone goes "Really?"

Like, no, I thought it would be fun to just straight up lie. -_-
