One of my favorite hash tags/trending topics on Twitter is white girl problems. For instance, “I want Starbucks, but they’re all too far from my house,” is a white girl problem. So is, “I wish I was tan and at the beach” and “Dunkin Donuts didn’t put enough sugar in my vanilla iced coffee.” Or “I want a hot dog and I think my brain is bleeding; I really need to drink less caffeine.”
I have white girl problems.
My brain may not be bleeding and I never want a hot dog, but I’ve spent the last three days mulling over the potential purchase of a tv stand for the tv in my bedroom. You’d think it would be easy to pick one.
The one I like, which happens to be the most affordable, has a finish that may be too dark to fit with our current bedroom furniture. I’m not huge on matchy-matchy, but it all has to work. And I fear this one won’t.
So, I found another one. But it’s pricier. And then I think, maybe I’ll go completely off course and find a black finish tv stand. But then I’d need to get rid of this table I have (in a darkish wood finish) because it would be out of place next to a black tv stand and the rest of my furniture. And then I’d need to replace the table with something in a black finish because then the room would be off balanced.
Oh. My. Life.
Of course Craig doesn’t care about the price or the aesthetics; he says just buy one. Most people enjoy having free reign and a (within reason) unlimited budget and yet, I’m acting like I’m participating in nuclear arms negotiations.
Finding a tv stand should not be this hard.
And I’m not going to even discuss my newest obsession with finding a better kitchen trash can.
Have I mentioned I have white girl problems?
