My Unpopular Opinions

April 10, 2019
Blog post

Turns out unpopular opinions posts are in fact very popular! If you’re on Twitter (shameless plug: follow me here) you may be sick of seeing so many by now but I really love reading these types of blog posts and have finally decided to do one of my own.

Summer is the worst season

Summer is a pretty miserable time of the year for me and I dread it every year! I’m much more comfortable and happier in autumn and winter. There are many reasons why I think summer is the worst season which includes:

  • Bugs.
  • Unbearable heat. This is especially bad at night when it’s too hot to sleep!
  • Being blinded by the sun whenever you step outside or catch a reflection. (Yes I have sunglasses but hate how they look on me).
  • Having to slather yourself in sticky sun-cream every hour.
  • Having to find summer clothes. As someone who is extremely self-conscious of their body finding clothes is a nightmare.
  • The sun naturally waking you up at 6am.
  • Hayfever.

Honestly, what is there to like?! I’d love to be able to hibernate during the summer months.

White chocolate is amazing

It makes me sad that so many people hate on white chocolate. It’s delicious and I could happily eat it all day every day!

Beyoncé is overrated

I. DO. NOT. UNDERSTAND. THE. HYPE. Yes, she can sing although her music is really not to my taste, yes, she can dance and yes, she’s attractive…like so many others on this earth! I don’t understand why she is hailed as an absolute queen. While she undeniably has talent there are people who are far more talented and far more likeable. She always seems very cold and distant, she doesn’t have much of a personality (that she shows to the public anyway) so I just don’t get what there is to idolise about her. I find her very dull and it baffles me that people still deem her and Jay Z as ‘couple goals’ even after he cheated on her, just no.

Cats are better than dogs

I’m sorry to all you dog lovers out there (please don’t unsubscribe) but cats are superior! I’ve had cats my entire life and couldn’t imagine a life without them. I’m not saying I don’t like dogs, I do think some of them are cute and funny, but every single cat I see will always make me go ‘awwwwwwwwww!’ They are beautiful, majestic creatures with such big personalities and they’re so so cute. I love it when they stretch so much their little legs shake, I love their jelly bean paws, I love their little sneezes and their big yawns and I love how they’re totally calm one minute and then racing around the house like a lunatic the next. Cats are also much more low maintenance than dogs and they don’t jump up and slobber all over you. I couldn’t handle that haha. I will definitely always be a cat lady.

We need to cancel ‘cancel culture’

I’m not sure if this is really an ‘unpopular’ opinion but I’m still seeing so many people participating in ‘cancel culture’ and it really makes my blood boil.

I hate to break it to you but everyone makes mistakes. Celebrities make mistakes. Influencers make mistakes. Politicians make mistakes. I make mistakes. Even you make mistakes! It’s human nature and ‘cancelling’ someone just because of a mistake they made recently or in the past is stupid. If we didn’t make mistakes we wouldn’t learn, grow or evolve.

This also applies to throwing out accusations without knowing all the facts or having solid evidence, Johnny Depp is a perfect example of this. Everyone ‘cancelled’ him and said horrific things to him for years, yet he was innocent. As much as people may think they know everything about a situation they don’t! So calm down with the whole ‘cancel culture’ and don’t be so quick to jump on the hateful bandwagon.

How many of the above do you agree or disagree with?

Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog while you’re here, I’d very much appreciate it! You can also follow me on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. Thanks for reading!

    White chocolate is amazeballs! I can’t eat it now, but I love it😍 Agree on Beyonce, she’s okay but so hyped up. She’s also praised as a Queen and so strong, yet she is a bit of a doormat in ny opinion🙈 Never seems a nice person either x

      Right?! I just don’t get it haha. She’s definitely a bit of a doormat in the public eye, I’m sure in private with her family and friends she’s more interesting, but she just gives off zero personality. 🤷🏼‍♀️ x

    Agree with most of these but not the cat one! They scare me tbh and dogs are so much cuter!

      What?! 😱 Cats are adorable! Haha admittedly they can be quite vicious sometimes when they’re in a bad mood but I just love them. 😊

    Agree with pretty much all of these! White chocolate is yummy and I’ve never understood the hype around Beyonce personally, x

      Yes! It’s so good! 😋 And it seems like a few people don’t get the hype around Beyoncé, glad it wasn’t just me haha. X

    I love white chocolate! And OH MY GOSH SOMEONE FINALLY feels the same about beyonce. I never liked her music! Or cares much for her. I never understood the hype around her!

      Me too, I’m really craving some now! Haha. YES! I’m so glad there are other people who agree with me on the Beyoncé thing, there are so many more artists who I’d consider more talented and definitely more personable!

    I was ready to fight with that point you said about summer (nothing NOTHING is worse than winter, especially when you live in a country where it’s looooong and summer is like a few days at best some years), but then you got to Beyonce and cats, and you are so right, girl!

    Xoxo,

      As a winter lover the week long summer we have feels like forever! Haha. I’d happily live in world that was permanently wintery and cosy 😊❄️ Glad someone finally agrees with me on cats! So many people I know prefer dogs I just can’t relate! 😂

    Oh my goodness, I agree with ALL of these! These are the unpopular opinions I didn’t know I had, lol. XD . Summer is so miserable, it honestly makes me grouchy. >.<
    I didn't know people hated on white chocolate?! It's SO good.
    Definitely agreed about Beyonce. I've never understood the hype either. She's good and all but why is she the queen??
    I love my doggo equally as much as I love my cat, but I think I do like cats overall a little more. Their personalities are just the best and I always feel like my cat is my spirit animal lol. They are so curious!

      Yes me too! I’m always much happier in winter when I’m all wrapped up and cosy haha. I swear all I see on Twitter is people hating on white chocolate and I’m like ‘you people are seriously missing out!’ You’re so right, cats personality’s are amazing, they’re just so funny and sneaky and adorable. 🐱

    I absolutely agree with you! It was actually refreshing to read your ‘unpopular’ opinions. I am actually sat here drinking a cup of white hot chocolate now! 😀
