1. I sacrifice quality for quantity
When I started this whole blog thing up, I wanted to be entertaining, and I wanted to try and make people smile, but I've lost a lot of that really over time. I try to make my blog posts as long as I can, by using big fancy words. But that doesn't make them better. Hell, one of my favourite recent blog posts came from the delightful Miss Sassy Pants, and it was just THREE WORDS LONG. http://www.afewfrenchfriesshortofahappymeal.com/2011/08/beyonces-pregnant-and-i-dont-care.html The title was "Beyonce's Pregnant And I Don't Care". The blog post itself? "I just don't". You don't have to be long to be good, and maybe one day I'll realise that.
2. I don't like my writing style much
Like I just said, I like to use big fancy words and sound formal, and there are times for that, and posts where I should do that. But I want to make people smile, and give them a laugh. That's easier with informal language, and when I'm not sounding like a pretentious asshole. I'm a lot less formal with my comments on blogs, that's a better sign of who I really am. I'm even writing a book, and I went back to rewrite the first two chapters (the only chapters I've done actually -_-) and the main thing I did was take out all the damn formality. There was no need for it. It was boring as hell. I want to be less formal, and more fun. I'm growing as a writer, so please bear with me until I get where I want to be :)
3. I've been playing vidya gaymes since I was 3 years old
You know how games have a 3+ age rating? I'm the reason they have that! I might not actually be, but one of my earliest memories is playing Super Mario 3 in my attic, when I was about 3. Cos I was so young, I really don't know how old I was, but I'm saying 3 lol. I also had Duck Hunt, and a light gun. That's right folks, from a very early age I was shooting virtual ducks with a gun. Am I a mass murderer? Nope. Cos games DON'T DO THAT! Years later I love ducks and other animals, and prefer knives to guns. But I'm not a violent person.
4. I try to hard to be funny
I always say that you should never try to be funny. It's when you're trying to be funny that you tend to not be, so don't try it. If you're a naturally funny person, and sometimes I can be, then the funny will come, don't try to force it. I'd like to think that yeah, sometimes I can be fun, and that's mostly because I can.
5. I take things WAY to seriously
Shock, horror, people screaming "LIEZ". I can hear it already. But yes, it is true I take things too seriously. Life, love, myself. Everything really. I need to stop that shit, and start loving life more, and kicking back and having fun yes. I know that. But when you've spent so long of your life telling yourself you have to be in complete control of yourself, it's hard to just let go. It really is. Sometimes it really sucks, but I am capable of letting go and having a laugh, just ask Jessica.
Five seems like a good number to end on really, maybe I'll do this again sometime. Also an apology to the right honorable Pope Timothy Bowen. I stole your idea of a confessions post. Kind of. I wanted to apologise for all the boring formal language, and say that I sacrifice quality for quantity, and thought "Why not just turn it into a long, but fun, post. Maybe more than one "Confession"?" So that's how this happened. Please don't sue me for plagiarism :( Or because you've trademarked the word "Confessions"...like Bethesda have with the word "Scrolls" or so they claim.
