Let’s imagine for a moment that we are all alike. Wouldn’t that be boring?
I recently dug out a box full of my university notes and came across an essay I did on individuality as part of my Cultural Studies module. After all these years, it made quite an interesting reading and inspired me to write today’s post.
To tell you the truth, there was a moment in my life when I felt like an alien. I was more mature than some people my age and had a different outlook on life. I was (and still am) the quiet type who preferred to stay in and read rather than go out and party until morning. I was also the only person in my social circle who didn’t drink so some people said that I was weird.
Although hearing that made me question myself for a short while, I then realised that I’m completely normal and don’t have to follow the suit just to fit in. After all, the world would be a dull place if we all looked and acted alike.
So embrace your uniqueness and love your quirks. To give you a little boost to do so, today I’m sharing with you my quirks which shaped me into who I am today.
I love eating strawberries with pasta
I know this probably sounds gross to you but it’s an amazing dish. Simply mash the strawberries with some sugar and serve them with pasta.
I bite my lip
I can’t help but bite my lip whether I’m working on my plans or getting nervous about something.
I have a serious sweet tooth
Chocolate, ice cream, cupcakes…I can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’m not joking.
I have a ‘scary’ looking doll sitting by my bed
When I was 7, my dad got me a doll which I still have to these days. Some people say that it’s freaky and looks like something you can see in horror movies. I don’t agree with them and I’d like to give it to my daughter if I ever have one.
I have an OCD about my teeth
I carry a toothpaste and toothbrush with me everywhere I go and brush my teeth each time I have coffee.
I wear socks in bed
My feet get really cold so I always put my socks on before going to bed.
