Cussing and Other Things I Should Stop Doing

I don’t understand how people can be eloquent 24/7. I mean, unless I’m part of the British Royal Family (Whattup, tho, Kate?), no one should expect that from me. Being prim and proper is seriously not my forte, because I’m a real freaking person. I’ve acquired a vocabulary fit for a sailor, if you know what I mean. I might have been immersed in books and the language arts all of my life, but that doesn’t mean I speak in code and philosophies all the time. Contrary to it, I’m kind of a nut.

Cussing though, all of the four-letter-words I opt to use, really needs to end. I don’t notice when I’m doing it and that’s a real problem. 1) I’m kind of in charge of a five-year-old, 2) I’m around other five-year-olds, 3) Everyone thinks I’m a nut (Well, I already told you I am.). While I could care less about what people think of me, I don’t want the way I speak to be a reflection of who I am except if it reflects that I’m honest about my feelings. I mean, sometimes f*** and s*** really do sum up my feelings, and I expect other people to be honest with me about theirs. Most of the time though, I see how cussing too much could make it seem like I’m an uneducated or immature. I’m not, k?

Aside from cussing like a sailor. I should probably stop:

  1. Talking like I’m on Tumblr IRL
  2. Putting heaps of sugar in my coffee and trying to justify that it’s still black because I don’t use creamer
  3. Saying “So it is.”
  4. Setting an alarm and waking before said alarm
  5. Taking on more than I can take on
  6. Stop saying “Yes, sure, I’ll do that.” and “Yeah, sure. I’ve got time for that.”
  8. Using gifs to express my feelings via text, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
    But this one is so appropriate right now:bye
  9. Laughing when something unfortunate happens to someone (i.e.: They trip and fall in front of me unexpectedly, and I laugh because I don’t know how to react. I should just help them up, because that’s what a good person does.)
  10. Forcing K-Pop on my friends and family. It’s not happening…ever.
  11. Thinking in Tagalog and laughing to myself. (I’m putting myself out there right now, plz don’t laugh at me.)
  12. As a piggy back to said thinking in Tagalog, I should probably stop laughing at my own jokes.
  13. JK!!
  14. Finally and most pivotal, I think: sitting at home and watching a marathon of Filipino teleseryes when I could be doing something more productive than bickering with my television at Angelo and Yna; and Clark and Lea.

Honestly though, I don’t see any of this stopping.

Do you have any weird quirks?


  1. One of our relatives used to live with us and she would unconsciously say p*** whenever she makes a mistake or something and my four-year-old niece then picked it up and blurted it one time. I was so shocked and found it funny and the same time. Oh kids!

    • HAHAHAHAHA! I do that, too. It’s just one of those things,k you can’t control it so much because it’s almost like a reflex.

  2. My quirks are just me bursting out in song or just saying random “Eggs! You like eggs? I like eggs!” or remembering that one line from the second Land Before Time Movie with the T-rex. I’m weird. But I’ve learned to embrace my quirks and I’m glad you have too! ^^

  3. I cuss quite a lot too, and I know it’s inappropriate! Oh well, we could use a little bit of cussing every now and then, tho hahaha

  4. Lol people think I don’t cuss cuz I look so innocent but I doo! Lol I usually cuss in english though but it’s not like I say it when I’m really mad. Sometimes I say it when I spill something, or things like that. Lol you know what I mean?

    • LOL! Yes, I do! Cussing is almost like a reflex for me. It just happens naturally, which is not a very good thing but oh wellzzz.

  5. Hah, I was raised to be prim, proper, and eloquent. But now that I’m grown up, I really couldn’t care less. Probably feel more inclined to curse now just because of that. I’m so mature. 8D I do agree that it should be toned down for kids. They pick up things so easily!

    Do you, bb! I’ve long let go of the idea that adults need to act a certain way. I work, pay my own bills and taxes, and stay fed and clean. What more do you want from us? ヾ(  ̄O ̄)ツ

    • “I work, pay my own bills and taxes, and stay fed and clean. What more do you want from [me]?”

      OMG That’s my new motto for life!!

  6. I cuss a lot, too, but . . . because of my job, I had to force myself to tone it down or use strange substitutes., like “fudge” for “f***k”. Sometimes I almost cuss, and I’m like Shiiiiiieeeeeeee. X_X It’s not easy, haha!

    Hey, some of your quirks aren’t that bad XD But if you don’t stop them, it’s not the end of the world or anything that dramatic, haha!

    • I need to find substitutes! haha, but I feel like they’d sound awkward coming from me XP. I’m kind of awkward in real life so.. I’m like half serious about stopping. Haha I just know that these are some of my [lighter] oddities.
