View Full Version : first world problems BOO HOO
August 8th, 2011, 10:13 PM
As a white middle class teenager, I go through a lot of struggles in my life. Sometimes my internet is slow, I have a curfew, I have to study and most shockingly, sometimes I have to get out of bed before 12pm on weekends. My question is, what are some of the terrifying, horrific first world problems do you have? Do you complain about them a lot? Or do you just roll your eyes, shake the crumbs from your delicious lunch off your shirt, and move on?

Sometimes after eating out I think of what it would be like if I was lucky enough to live in Haiti where there isn't an abnormal number of fast food restaurants. Then it all comes crashing down in the form of my poop and I cry.

When I'm presented with a lot of food, I have to be grateful for it because there are a lot of poor people out in the streets starving.

When I have to wake up at 6:00 in the morning to get ready for my summer job so I can leave an hour later while having bags under bags under my eyes 0_0

When I was moving into my new house, I was without internet for about a week. If i didn't have a nearby Starbucks whose Wi-Fi I could exploit, I would have gone completely postal on my housemates. Definitely a #firstworldproblem.

I sometimes complain when I have to eat Ramen noodles every day for lunch because we can't afford much else, but then I remember that there are people out there who have even less. I am lucky to have roof over my head and a loving mom who lets me live with her while I try to find a job and get enough money to move out on my own with my girlfriend who I intend to propose to toward the end of this year. I am lucky to have my mom to help me, and a girlfriend who loves me for who I am. I know some people out there are on the streets with no family, having to support themselves when they are just children.
