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:
- Talking like I’m on Tumblr IRL
- Putting heaps of sugar in my coffee and trying to justify that it’s still black because I don’t use creamer
- Saying “So it is.”
- Setting an alarm and waking before said alarm
- Taking on more than I can take on
- Stop saying “Yes, sure, I’ll do that.” and “Yeah, sure. I’ve got time for that.”
- BUYING OFFICE SUPPLIES I DON’T NEED
- Using gifs to express my feelings via text, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
But this one is so appropriate right now:
- 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.)
- Forcing K-Pop on my friends and family. It’s not happening…ever.
- Thinking in Tagalog and laughing to myself. (I’m putting myself out there right now, plz don’t laugh at me.)
- As a piggy back to said thinking in Tagalog, I should probably stop laughing at my own jokes.
- 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?
